why i've been so blasted busy; caution






no time for actual sentences or inflection. austin got a bloody head wound from a two year old wielding a long stick. he and i spent 4.... FOUR, hours in the ER. austin in heaven, played gameboy the whole time. we went to seward with fam. (more picts later.) mike had surgery. on his knee. hence the wheelchair. i cringed for him. has been on crutches for 5 weeks. crutches in alaska come with spikes for the ice. i must do everything for him. although he can now put on his own socks. i made a personal goal not to whine and witch about it. i have one week to go. pray for me.

Are you surviving? Poor Mags-that's more than any mom/wife should have to deal with. I do like the shot of the crutches with crampons, though. Very Alaska.

Bless you. You're going straight to heaven, you know that right? Glad Mike can put on his own socks now. Wow, that's like having 5 kids...but worse.

Poor Austin, when did that happen? I didn't even notice any significant wounds today. Poor kid.

I know you're not really busy. You're just sittin at home reading a book while Mike peels you grapes and alternately drops bon bons into your mouth. You're so spoiled. :)

Can't wait for a nice long bike ride and some roughing it. :)

Ice picks huh? Wow. You are a great wife Maggie, but I will pray for you, I am sure that after a long time, anyone's patience would be worn thin.

Poor Austin, poor Mike, poor you. Hope everyone, and everything will get back to normal soon. :)

I feel your pain. Hip surgery and broken shoulder and knee and little kids made for an insane mom. Go get yourself a bucket of the best ice cream in Alaska, order everyone to bed, let the dishes go. Love you ARN

Wow!! That is a lot to deal with! But I am sure you are handling it like the super mom you are. Poor Austin! Hope he is feeling better!

Well hopefully we will see you guys in Monticello sometime, or at our 15 yr. because for some reason you all wanted me to be in charge "what ev" Tell your family hi for me and take care!
