Computers...Emergency Rooms...Ugh...

Well, it has been awhile since I have poured out my feelings...only because my computer is on the fritz! I'm at the library now using the computer because mine has been in the shop for almost a week! And they still don't know what is wrong with it! I have so many pictures to put up, storied to tell and share that I can't stand it!

We went to visit my sister-in-law and her little girls over the Halloween weekend while our hubbys were away for work. It was awesome! We had so much fun and had girl-talk time after the kiddos were in bed with a nice glass(es) of wine to round off the days! I'll have to share some stories later.

But the highlight of our trip to Grand Junction was the Emergency Room. On Saturday, the 5 of us took a hike to energize ourselves after Halloween the night before. Aidan, of course, was his usual self by running down the mountain trails with rocks jutting out all over the place! I was just sure that he would trip and fall and crack his head open. NOPE! He was just fine, it was his momma who's blood pressue was up! LOL! I need to chill out...that's another story, I'm sure!

Anyways, we went home to have lunch. While we were making lunch the kiddos were outside playing on the playground and trampoline...just like usual. When one of the girls came inside with Aidan trailing, totally hysterical. He had fallen off of the trampoline or playground and did the pinball effect between the two. He busted his lip open, bit his cheek, bruised and scraped his chin, bruised one side of his head and got a small head wound on one side of his head. At first we were just going to stop the bleeding, only after we told him he couldn't go back outside to play...which he was hysterical about that! When I picked him up he layed his head on my shoulder and began to get really sleepy. Granted his nap time was about this time, but with a head wound, I feared a concusion. We rushed to the Emergency Room and they did a look over, and he was fine. They put Durabond on the wound and helped clean him up a bit. Giving him a couple rolls of SMARTIES helped too to keep him distracted. WHEW! Thank heaven for Halloween candy, eh?

Anyways, we are home now and he is fine...just as onery as ever, but it was a great weekend, one filled with memories and experiences!

Now, if I can just get my computer back, we'll be back to there a normal?
