One Hell of a Weekend

So I was going to post about all the work we did in the boys room this weekend but that is going to have to wait. I have pics to post as well. Instead, I have a bunch of craptastic stuff to post about.

1. Houston busted his lip again ... on Brody's head. They were horsing around on the couch on Saturday evening. He has a nice swollen, scabbed lip now.
2. On Sunday, our rooster attacked Brody. Seriously. Somehow by the grace of God his eye was not damaged. I'll post a picture. Needless to say we no longer have a rooster in the back yard. Houston and the rooster ran into each other on Friday and the rooster sort of freaked out and tried to attach Houston. We should have realized. I feel bad about it but we can't have a bird in our back yard that can't be around kids. Brody ran in the house crying and we could tell something was really wrong. Then we saw ...
3. Sunday evening I was on one of my decluttering missions (so i was walking fast) and cracked my toe on the couch. I'm sure it's broken ... I heard it snap. Brett had to help me to the recliner and that is where I stayed, crying and icing my foot for the remainder of the night. Tried to get up this morning to take Houston to school but couldn't do it. I'm about to take myself to the ER to get it checked out. It's blue up into my foot and I'm a little concerned about how the toe is sitting sort of turned. That and there is intense pain in one spot when I try to walk on it. It is where the toe joins to the foot. I did some interent searching and found that I probably should go have it checked out in case it needs to be put back in place.
4. Brody fell this morning ... landed on his chin and took a big chunk out of his cheek. His mouth filled with blood pretty quickly. I thought he bit through his lip but I couldn't find the cut. Finally saw it ... ouch! It has stopped bleeding though so he's all good. Now he has a bruise on his chin to go with the rooster scratches on his face and back.

I swear we are good parents. Really ... however, our kids look like they have been through a big fight or something. Good grief!


  1. What's for dinner? Did I hear Rooster Florentine?

  2. OMFG. That is all I have to say. That and... girl, can I buy you a drink? It sounds like you might need one!

  3. I hope you had a good rooster dinner after that...
    Wow that is one hell of a weekend. As far as the parenting stuff, you have boys. This is just the start of things to come..

    Keep your chin up or maybe I should say your foot up.


  4. UGH!! I am so sorry that all this has been going on :(

    I hope that you're feeling better.
