Broken Wrist

Well, maybe the third cast will be the charm. Angela broke her wrist about a month ago reffing soccer. A 4 yr old wearing cleats kicked her in the wrist.
 The first cast was Luke blue with dark blue sparkles. Though it was long cast, the cast person didn't put in the thumb spike. I thought it was suppose to have the spike, but I figured the person knew what to do. Unfortunately, Ang was having all kinds of pain and problems with her wrist still. When she got back from Minnesota, she was waking up at 3 am in pain. Not good. I made a call and got her back in.
 Cast #2 was pink with multicolored sparkles. I was right! She did need the thumb spike to hold things in place and restrict movement. The thumb is a little high so it was a little uncomfortable. She was also told to not do anything for a bit. That meant she missed her last dance competition, though we did go and watch. Just as things were getting back to normal, she fell Sunday. It was an accident but Ang fell on the arm and also hit her head on the ground pretty hard. That's not what she needed. We had to go back to the orthopedic to make sure she didn't knock things out of place.
The wrist is starting to heal, hopefully....but this new cast she'll have on for graduation. It's Batman yellow of coarse. A friend already put Hufflepuff on it, and is putting the Batman signal on the other side tomorrow. Angela probably has a minor concussion too. That means no activity for a couple of weeks. Just as she was getting back to dance too. GRR. I'm hoping her headaches go away soon.

New Year, New Troubles

Yes, I'm a terrible blogger. So much has happened the last few months. Today I would like to wish the Kell-Pope-Lassiter NJROTC Drill, Academic, and Athletic teams good luck at Regionals tomorrow. The kids have worked hard all year, and I hope they do well. It would be great if they made Nationals.

First College Acceptance Letter

My daughter received her first college acceptance letter in the mail 2 weeks ago. I think I was more excited than she was. Today WKU sent her information about joining their marching band. 
I don't know if this is where Ang will decide to attend, as she's waiting for another acceptance. The school sent her the scholarship information for a theater scholarship, which arrived today. She'll be getting everything together for it...

Ang is also waiting for one more grade to be put in the computer....her A P Physics.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I can't believe it's already the end of October. Not only is it Halloween, but senior night at the high school. Unfortunately, my daughter is still not feeling too well....and she has a drill meet on Saturday. She's getting picked up before 3 am...eww. I'd like to go.....but it's Halloween. Someone has to be around to pass out candy, and Hubby is going deer hunting.

My daughter was dressed up last weekend for work, as was I. I tried to make her look younger with the ponytails, but it just didn't work.

Terrible Blogger

Yes, I realize I'm a terrible blogger. Life just keeps getting in my way. I will try to be better, but things are so busy here. Once we get over one catastrophe, another one seems to happen.

Review: Crest BE Vanilla Mint Spark Toothpaste

As a BzzAgent, I was given a small tube of Crest BE Vanilla Mint Spark Toothpaste to try and review. According to the Crest website, "Think you know vanilla? Think again. Whipped together with mint, it's an inspiration to behold. So refreshing and fantastically flavorful. Toothbrushes, it's safe to say you've found your muse."

The Crest BE Vanilla Mint Spark toothpaste is the one in the's BE Inspired....and it actually tastes good. I wasn't sure about the vanilla part, but surprisingly, the combination works. I can taste the vanilla, but it's not overpowering. The mint makes it seem like it's really a toothpaste, and gives my mouth a clean, refreshing feeling. It's a toothpaste I would continue to use, though out of the three flavors, it falls right in the middle.

Will Try Harder

I do need to try harder to become a better blogger. Nothing is really going on of interest though. School is winding down, as is dance. Stepping Out Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) will be moving to a new location. That's exciting news, as it will add a studio and double the space.

Congrats to all the SOPAC dancers on their wonderful competition results from the Savannah competition this past weekend.
