Playing Volleyball? Really?

You know I love both playing and watching volleyball, and every Thursday, I am in charge of coed volleyball at our church.


It might sound pretty tame, but for those of us on blood thinners, there are a few extra risks. Like maybe trying to pick up the serve with your leg when your arms can't quite reach is not the best idea.

The next day, I had one of these.


And, at the risk of offending you, a few days later, even without a break in the skin, it decided to become infected.



Now I thought this was a pretty obvious infection, so I went to the Urgent Care for some antibiotics. Unfortunately, the on-call doc didn't care that I was on blood thinners because she was pretty sure it was a clot. Guess what happened next...


I was escorted to the ER for an ultrasound!! Three hours later...


I was NOT as happy as this picture looks, but it wasn't long before they wrote my prescription for antibiotics and sent me on my way.

Such a waste of one of our beautiful fall days.

Baby Cuts

Remember last weekend when I was telling you about our family birthday party? I forgot to tell you what we did after dessert. I cut hair.

We started with Little Warrior and Little Squire. At 5 and 3, they are pretty good at sitting still although Little Squire preferred to keep his mama close. (Sorry. No pics. I was sorta busy...)

Then it was Queso's turn.


He was NOT happy!


Not even with his mama close by. The entire haircut was a huge ordeal for our poor little guy.



But after all that trauma, he looks amazing!


Don't you think?

Swimming with the Grandkids

Some of our happiest summer days this year were spent at the pool. Last Friday, we tried to recreate some of that fun since the older kids were out of school for the day.





They grow up so fast!

More Volleyball for Baby Doll

It is so much fun to watch Baby Doll play on the Jr. High Volleyball Team! Every Wednesday, the evening is filled with competition.


Baby Doll is one of the best players and their team is at the top of the league.



They only play a few more weeks, but I have a suspician that pretty soon she will be playing year round.
