Thursday Thirteen



Thirteen random things: a year ago...

01. I didn't have this blog
02. I was learning new things with an initial blog nobody but my sister and a good friend were willing got to read it.
03. You didn't miss a thing!
04. The teenager was almost 17 and a junior in high school.
05. We had a Canadian exchange student at home
06. From Winnipeg
07. Our son had spent time with him and his family in Canada months before.
08. It was a fun family experience
09. Teenager had just had an accident riding his bike.
10. He had a scaphoid (wrist bone) fracture and a cast on for 6 weeks. It was his left hand, so he was happy he could still do his homework :)
11. When I expressed my surprise about the six weeks, the doctor told me if I would have had the same fracture, I would have needed a cast on for at least three months...

12. That was the doctor's charming way of reminding me of my old bones!
13. I shouldn't have paid that bill...!!

  10. the day i broke my right arm, a 2 y/o i know did as well....same break, same day. she wore her cast for just under 3 weeks. i wore mine for a little more than 3 months. our mutual ortho doc reminded me the same thing that old bones heal slower....humbling and so unnecessary is what i told him.
    my tt is up.
    have a great week!

  21. Yeah, I don't really relish being reminded of my age by doctors. They have a rather blunt way of saying it, ya know?

    My TT is up!

    MY tt is up.

  48. WONDERFUL idea for a TT list! Isn't it amazing how much things can change? This time last year was a very unsettling time for me, so it's nice to see how things have evolved, even though I want to make more changes. Thanks for the reminder to reflect.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It is amazing what can change in our lives in a year!!
    Thanks for stopping by my T13 and I am sorry you have had trouble getting on my site. My esteemed templete designer, KellyNelly, said it was not the template. In Foxfire it is not a problem, it seems to only be in IE.

    ReplyDelete
  50. You should have paid the DR what you would have paid in Canada: nothing!

    You really got me thinking about what I can do for next weeks list--what I was doing a year ago. For one thing, I was just going back to work after Maternity leave.
