He calls me..............GRACE!

Well, have ya missed me? Again? This time I do have an excuse. Stayed tuned!

My husband has many names he lovingly calls me. My given name; my maiden name; baby; biatch (most the times well deserved); judy, judy, with the big ole bootie; and now he's added Grace to his repertoire.

We live in a traditional florida home. One story, block construction, stucco exterior. There is a step up to the front entryway and one down out the back doors to the pool deck. And two little steps leading from the kitchen to our garage. It seems I can do the one step, no problem..........but the two step? Let's just say I won't be doing that Texan dance for awhile now!


*Yes, I know I need a pedi*

Last Wednesday morning I was busy running around trying to get everything going for the 30 people we were having over for Boo Bear's birthday party. I am so a last minute person. I had already done my usual morning routine and had just come in from hanging the laundry on the clothes line. I went to start the baking of the 60 cupcakes and decided I needed a coke to keep me going. Of course I am trying to lose weight so i needed a diet (YUCK) coke and I wanted to splurge on the cupcakes so I had to go to the garage refrigerator because diet soda does NOT deserve prime real estate in my convenient kitchen fridge. Location, location, location!!!

Hmmm, at 8:45 AM, I seemed to have missed the steps and broke my foot. I called my pregnant friend (who ended up delivering two days later) to come help me. I wobbled and hobbled and managed to do all the baking and food prep for the party. Then went to the docs, where I spent the next four hours having no less than 6 docs (sports team med docs) keep asking me, HOW DID YOU DO THIS???? Yup, two stairs.


So now I am laid up for at least 6 weeks, these first two(if I'm lucky, only 2) in a non weight bearing cast. Allow me to remind you I have four children, one of which is a 28 lb., 16 month old WHO DOESN"T WALK. It is also the dogs days of summer!!!!!!!!! And my birthday boy just got HIS cast off last week.

So, that's why he calls me Grace..........and why I've been away. Off to catch up on my google reader reading!!!!!!!!!
