5:28PM - RL will whoop you in shape!

Someone please say that real life can be nice; ca be comforting; can occassionally not knock the wind right out of you and make your head spin - please?

The last seven days:
* Rain which caused flooding in my house.
* house flooding beget ripping out front steps and replacing, putting in gutters, installing a sump pump.
* Son had MRI to see if he will need surgery for shoulder
* Daughter broke nose right before volleyball starts and more importantly school pictures. (8th grader)

That is 4 tragedies! I was promised that they came in threes. Is this the bonus round?????

Off to laugh because crying just doesn't seem to get me anywhere .. :)

7:56AM - Crazyiest week ever in my life!

I can't say I never want to repeat this last week, but a bit less drama would be nice. The week actually started last Thursday when the heir qualified to the MN state track & field meet in pole vaulting. He broke his school's record. His height on the pole vault also made it clear that if he was to well at state, he needed a bigger pole His school rented two poles for him (they don't own that large of a pole since they have never had a vaulted that could go that high). The heir broke the rented pole on Monday, bruising his elbow in the process - scary enough. New pole was rented. Thursday comes and the heir was going to take 5 jumps at precice toget ready for the state meet the next day. First attempt goes awry and he come crashing down into themetal vault box, slamming his back into the box. He can barely stand the pain. Haul him off to make sure he didn't break his back. Thank goodness, it was only a seriously deep back bruise. Lots of ice and ibuprophen later, he is upat 6am to get to the meet site to compete. 4 hours later and through 16 other competitors, he breaks another school record and clears 15 ft!! He is now the 2011 MN State Pole Vault Champion. He's only been vaulting since January and accomplished every goal he set this year. Next year he will have alot of guys gunning for his title, but he hasnever buckled undre pressure. I am so proud of him!

I just have to throw in some RL Mom bragging. My oldest - the Heir - broke his school's pole vaulting record by 5 inches today and qualified for the state meet with a 13'11" pole vault. He only started pole vaulting in January of this year after he had to give up competition gymnastics (he was nationally ranked) due to a bad shoulder injury. Pole vaulting was a god-send. He loves it almost as much as gymnatics and it is a great workout for him.

Current mood: ecstatic

8:54PM - Motorhome Family Trip 2010

My three and husband all packed into our motorhome (28ft Mallard for those counting) and took off for the Black Hills of South Dakota, USA. We had a great time! We saw lots of things, did many more, and had great homecooked meals (hamburger, Brats, salmon, chicken, pizza). Our first and last nights also had severe weather. What fun those are in a motorhome! But we are still here and now watching a movie in the creature comforts of the motorhome. When we get back home tomorrow I will try to post a picture of some of the things we saw and did.
Yay for family vacations!

Current mood: satisfied
