The Insanity of the Season


Christmas is such a busy time of the year.  A wonderful time, but yet one chock full of so many things to do. 

We have been managing pretty well here in Smalltownland.  Lots of family functions, Christmas plays, banquets, etc...  It has all been coming together. 

And then the smallest chiclet goes and breaks her wrist in the second basketball game of the season. 

As you can see, it is not slowing her down at all.  Phone on the ear and laptop in action.

  1. The picture of your daughter is priceless and inspires me to sort of forget about my aches and pains for a while.

  2. Ouch.. reminds me of my daughter who broke her right arm, then her left, then her right again within a year - horseback riding, skating and at school in gym class. Hopefully your darling won't break any more!

  3. Christmas next to Thanksgiving is the best holiday but yes you are right, there are so many things to do and so many places to go that it takes a toll.
    Sorry your daughter broke her wrist, hopefully she will hear quickly.

  8. Sorry to see that your daughter had an accident particularly at this time. It's supposed to be a non contact sport but I'm a season ticket holder for Newcastle Eagles and know that it's anything but that !

  14. I need at least two months following Thanksgiving to get my act ready for Christmas...True, its coming together.

    Sorry to hear that your daughter broke her wrist. She looks like she has been taking care of business without missing a beat.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  15. Aww....too bad. She seems to be handling it well:) Maybe this will slow things down for you a bit?;)

  16. Oh watching your child get hurt anytime is horrid but during a sporting event is terrible to be on the sidelines. Been there before. Heal and rest! Also saw Joel Salatin's book is on your Kindle. Very interested in your feedback on it.

  19. Lovely quilt. Wonderful photos too.

  20. Seems a lot of anxiety closer to Christmas while it should be more relaxing and joyful about it ... that all seems to be so true even in our culture anticipating the Chinese New Year !

  21. So sorry about her wrist! Not that she isn't coping....brave little one! Love that multi-tasking pic!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh no! But glad she doesn't seem to let it slow her down any! :)

  23. She'll have a good story to tell for years to come. I must say, she's quite the multi-tasker! (Plus, she didn't appear to flinch w/Mom hovering over her with a camera -- impressive!)

  24. I asm so sorry that this hapened....hope it all heals good as new.

  25. I see that a broken wrist is not enough to keep her away from modern technology. My best wishes to her, I hope she well be soon able to play again!

    ReplyDelete
  26. LOL! Can't slow HER down!
    I hope she heals quickly.

  27. Talk about adaptable !

    No cradle attached to the cast yet to hold the phone for texting ? ;-)

    At her age, she'll heal quickly. At our age ...

  28. Hope she gets better soon and copes with Christmas- lovely festive photos too.

  30. That's some serious multi-tasking going on there ;)

  31. Oh the poor dear! What a lousy time to have a cast. I hope she heals quickly and is able to play basketball before the season is over.

  32. I pray for a speedy recovery for her! In the meantime, what fun to decorate.

    I love the looks of that store...that's my kind of place!

  33. Sometimes I think life gets too busy this time of year when it should be the exact opposite. I know with John's new schedule there is precious little "at home" time anymore for us.

    Sorry about Chicklet. It stinks to be sick/hurt around the holidays. Ren had a nose job once during Christmas break. Not fun. Not fun, at all. Hope yours is feeling better. Maybe Santa will bring her something extra special for being such a trooper! ;)
