"" Three Ladies and a Dad: July 2010

the perfect last day

School resumes on Monday, and while I am dreading it, I am trying to take Jeremy's approach to it all :: "You're one week closer to graduating babe!"

Today, the girls and I loafed at home. I drank coffee in silence while they slept in and since it is way too hot outside to do anything, we stayed inside. They picked up their bedroom and toy room without arguing and if you know our girls, that is an accomplishment in and of itself. Laundry is caught up on, bathroom mirrors are clean of any splatters and the beds are waiting for us with clean sheets.

This weekend we have a birthday party while Jeremy hits up the golf course, then we are off on our weekly family grocery shopping trip.

For now, I am off to chit chat with a friend while having a drink. There is nothing like summer....

I have to admit, it does look pretty stinking cute.

Saturday night, Zoa fell off a tricycle. After the normal amount of tears and a small bag of ice, she was fine, laughing actually. Jeremy and I figured she just jammed her thumb. It was swollen but she could move it in every direction.

The week continued on, swimming lessons, playing outside, cleaning...normal day to day things. No complaints from Zoa whatsoever.

On Wednesday, I noticed it was still swollen and had some bruising so I thought I would call the doctor just in case.

We headed off to the doctor that afternoon...

...and the nurse practitioner wanted to have an xray, just in case.

The doctor walks in and I knew it was broke. The doctor was full so we had the appointment with the nurse practitioner. Uh oh. She asked what happened and we told her...

"How big was the tricycle?", she asked.

Come to find out, she broke the bone that connects the thumb to your wrist. That is why she was able to move her thumb so good! They put it in a wrap and made the appointment to see the orthopedic doctor the next day to get a hard cast. She was definitely embarrassed about it now.

We headed there the next afternoon while Macie was at a play date. They were running behind (go figure!) so what else do you do while waiting? Make goofy faces!

Once we got back, we waited some more...

...and then got called back to start the casting.

"Hot pink, please" was her color of choice.

After getting it wrapped, Zoa was good to go. She is loving it!

Lots of pain

I am not sure how I could miss a broken hand for five days. I mean, look at her (dirty face and all)...she was in a massive amount of pain a few hours after it happened.

Come back later for the full story...I am off to go buy scrubs for clinicals.

Menu Plan Monday

Even though I did not post a menu last week, I changed it up a bit. I have always assumed that lunch will be found, but when you make your shopping list according to exactly what you are eating, lunch may not be in the list. Last week, I did a lunch menu also and it helped out so much...

Lunch - PB&J sandwiches and carrot sticks
Snack - Fruit
Dinner -Stuff you put over toast and a veggie
Lunch - A little buffet of crackers, cheese, olives and fruit
Snack - Smoothies
Dinner - Simple sesame noodles with chicken and/or shrimp
Lunch - Turkey and cheese sandwiches and pretzels
Snack - Apples and peanut butter
Dinner - Vegetarian tostados and corn on the cob
Lunch - Grilled cheese sandwiches and a fruit
Snack - Carrot sticks
Dinner - Grilled chicken of some sort and a salad with a veggie
Lunch - Picnic...the girls and I will decide what to bring. Probably something similar to Tuesday's lunch.
Snack - Popcorn
Dinner - Homemade pizza
We are out of town today.
Lunch - Leftover pizza
Snack - Fruit
Dinner - Steaks on the grill with a veggie

Wordless Wednesday: Swimming Lessons

They started yesterday. Two hours a day, four days a week for two weeks.
