A Kick in the Pants, Bum Hockey and New Adventures

Sigh ... so many things went wrong today which led to an emotional breakdown for me. So, after that good emotional release, which led to a super charged power walk with the kids, my head has cleared and I am determined to view each day with a positive outlook, or downer situations with a humorous perspective.

So ... in an effort to achieve this new found wisdom, I will attempt to give it a shot:

What? Our house was conditionally sold for the past week but the purchaser's financing fell through today hence we are back to square one? Well crap. But .... at least I am blessed enough to have a roof over my head. Perhaps since we couldn't sell the house when it was in pristine showhome like conditions, I should leave it in it's au natural state of tornado like distruction. That way, a potential home owner would really see how the house functions to it's fullest potential.

What? The house that we FINALLY found in Cranbrook we can't put an offer on? And ... as a result will likely lose the opportunity to get it? Hmm ... I guess that it just wasn't meant to be ours. After all .... I didn't particularly like the colour of the cupboards. But then again, perhaps it will just sit stagnant as far as offers go and become ours after months of waiting for the perfect new owner.

What? Kaelen will certainly be in a full cast for the next 8 weeks? Sigh. Well at least the specialist today said that his joints have realigned very nicely so surgery will be avoided. Despite the nasty break in the middle of the tibia (I know, I posted fibula earlier and for the record - I was right, hubby and the ER doctor were WRONG), because Kaelen is only 3 years old, his body will produce enough callus to fill in the gaping hole that currently exists. PLUS ... because he is only 3 years old, he is also very adaptable. Who said that where there is a will there is a way? Just check out his newest version of hockey: Butt Hockey. I figured that it wouldn't be too long before he could find a way to get the stick back into his hands.


What? Masyn took a cross check from Kaelen's stick to her mouth today? Well heck, at least she didn't have any teeth knocked out like Kaelen did at 15 months! She only has a minor fat lip and a nice little shiner due to her determined efforts to climb a wine crate. But heck - who cares. Just look how damn cute she is in all of her crawling glory!! Oh ... and on an update front, Masyn heads into the hospital on Thursday for a 2 1/2 hour test on her kidneys. I am assuming that this may be the IV test to watch the dye travel down through her kidneys as opposed to the VCUG where it travelled up to her kidneys. Jenn ... if this is not the case, please feel free to correct me .... or alternatively, you can all wait until I can tell for sure what the heck went on for that 2 1/2 hours.

What? Hubby is working in Cranbrook this week again? Well, at least that means that I get the entire king bed TO MYSELF!! Okay. That is a joke. Honey, if you are reading this, I appreciate every moment that you are here or there. I know the incredible load of work that you are under right now is huge let alone having to deal with all of the chaos in our family personal life. Just keep focused on the jobs and I will keep everything here smooth running, or at least make it look like it is. If things get too difficult with trying to sell the house, I could always throw a bonus purchase incentive in such as a kid or two. Nah ... lets keep them. How do you feel about me giving the cat away though?

I think you have every reason to have an emotional meltdown, but one of the reasons I love your blog is your positive outlook.

An IVU/IVP test doesn't usually take 2 1/2 hours, usually shorter, like 45 minutes. CT scans are usually shorter too, I wonder if it's a nuclear medicine scan, or maybe they are just embleshing the time....

Well whatever it is good luck! That Masyn is trooper.

Yes, I will be Mimi to your's too...What's a few more little kiddies? Just let me know before you come for Christmas so I can add more stockings to the fireplace! LOL...
Your house will sell in God's timing. I will say a prayer for your situation. You are right, cubbord colors are very important when buying a new home!
Oh, my son played hockey growing up..he has a lot of old hockey scars to prove it...he's 27 now!
Take care...

OH my goodness girl! I don't know how you're keeping it all together! Although with kids that cute, you sure could forget your sorrows!

Jenn - yes - I do know that it is sometype of a nuclear medicine scan. I remember the doctor mentioning something about a nuclear VCUG - is there such a thing?
