I'd have a beer right now but I'd probably bust my teeth!

I have had quite an interesting 24 hours.  In no particular order:

Fell off of the couch while playing Wii golf not once, but twice!  (Alcohol WAS a factor)

Ripped half a toe nail off, OUCH!

While mowing got stung repeatedly in the calf by a ground bee/ yellow jacket, which then got stuck on my sock.  I ran across the yard, throwing my shoes and socks off and now I am pretty sure my neighbors think I am crazy!.

Twisted my ankle by slipping in the mud mowing up the back hill.

The Benadryl I took for the bee stings kicked in while I was grocery shopping.  I was asked several times if I needed help shopping.  I wonder how bad I really looked.....

Got soap in my eye while in the shower.

Gums swelled up when I flossed.

You get the gist!  So, as I said before I would really love to have an ice cold Blue Moon right now, but I am afraid I will somehow bust my teeth out with the bottle.  I know, I'll just pour it in a glass and enjoy.

At least I know tomorrow HAS to be better!

Family Vacations

Each and every year since I have been married the hubby and I go on a family vacation/reunion.

He is the youngest of 5 and our entire blended family comes to stay in one house. Brothers, sisters, mommers, nephews and wife.

If we weren't so close knit it would be sheer hell.

We spend the week playing Shanghai rummy, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Zombies, etc. Good thing we all like playing games!

Stress comes and then leaves as soon as it comes. No bickering, no arguing, just trying to figure out what to eat for dinner with a minimum of 4 vegetarians at any given time.

I got lucky to marry into a unique/ open family. I can't imagine what a family vacation would be with my side.....

Count your blessings while you can!
