Never a dull moment...

It appears that we're not allowed any dull moments in the Mutch household! We were at our friends place on Saturday night who happens to live just a cross the street from us. She started up a portrait studio business in her home and does off-site portraits, as well. Since the girls school pics weren't very good this year, I decided to take them over there to get more shots done and get a family one done of us all while we were at it.

Well, the portrait session went well, but then as we were leaving, Jim slipped on the way out the door on the wet concrete step with his dress shoes on with no treads on them. Down he went...rolling his ankle. By the time he got to our house across the street, the side of his ankle had swelled up the size of a large orange!

He was too stubborn to go to the civilian hospital, not wanting to have to wait 6-8 hours or more, so he decided to wait until this morning to go to the Base hospital. Yup, you guessed it, he's got a broken ankle, or broken Tibia actually. So, he's in a cast until next Monday when they'll reassess it to see if the bones have shifted at all, then they'll put on another cast for another 6-8 weeks. Guess that puts the kibosh on sailing for a while! Poor Jim! I'll have to make him a funny Get Well Soon card...

Well, I'm still trying to get over this darn cold and need to go get some rest. It's nice not to have to working 16 hour days now like the lead up to Gala, but now it's time to rest up a bit. I'll kick back into crafty mode in a couple of days. :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
