Crazy day.

Someone's birthday - breakfast celebration before school.

Conference call - survived.

Handymen - had to empty and then refill the fridge/freezer.

Call from school - kid broke her face and I had to bring her home.

Need to stop work early to pick up the other kid for more birthday celebrations.

Gotta go!

Have fun!

I'm not sure what "broke her face" means, but I hope she's ok, SKL. 


She fell on her face at recess, and got a fat/bloody lip and a chipped front tooth.


She is a trooper.  Still in some pain, but she rarely lets pain slow her down.


We have a dentist appointment for Monday afternoon.


Thanks for your concern.  :)
