Daddy's home

We made it to Day 9. Yesterday at 6:15 pm we picked up Daddy from the airport. Good to have him home now. We came home and relaxed and got some pizza at home since he was kind of jet lagged. The kids were happy and excited to show him things we had been doing all week.

We are relaxing today and have a baseball game to go to tonight. It's going to have a big fireworks show afterward celebrating Independence Day so should be a good one, considering how great the fireworks are even when it's not a holiday. Tracy has been bugging my parents all season to go with us to a game and they are going to go with us tonight so we'll have all the grandparents with us.

Yes, I am still freaked out, but we are going to go anyway and have a good time. If we decide we dont want to sit in our seats we can always hang out at the playground and walk around the concourse. My mother in law has been checking on the poor injured kid. He's still in the hospital but he is in stable condition, they just want to make sure he doesnt get an infection like meningitis or something while he is healing. I am sure in the end he is going to be fine, just sad for a little kid to have to deal with that kind of pain.


My kids finally got up, so I guess I will go see what they are doing and get our lazy day started.

Update--Mike had to run into work for a little while, some big thing broke or something. (yeah, that's the technical description) He really didnt want to go. At least he's only like 5 miles away, not across the ocean.

He just got back from a 9 day road trip and he had to go to the office on Sunday of a holiday weekend? Ugh, that would suck. I hate traveling on business. Luckily I don't think I will have to travel again until the end of August. The last trip I was basically gone for 2 weeks. If I had to go to the office the day after I got back, I'd only be doing it to hand in my resignation letter. :) But then again, I'm not *that* important and nobody else works on the weekends so they wouldn't need anything from me.

Have fun at the game tonight. It's hard to believe that kid is still in the hospital. He must have got hit really hard. My sister took a foul ball to the face a few years ago at a Rangers game. After a few stitches and a few weeks, she recovered. I'm sure the little one will recover just fine. Kids are resilient.

On the way in he was muttering something about finding a new job :)
He just has busy times and easy times, it fluctuates, its not like this all the time. He travels a lot, but he's not gone a lot, its normally just 1-3 day trips, not 9. The guy he is trying to fix the problem for is in France where he came from so I guess its not a holiday for that dude.

The ball that hit that kid had NO arc, it was straight on and fast, which is why not a single person had time to react and try to stop it. From what I understand, it broke that bone that is like the roof of your mouth and behind your nose or whatever, which can heal, but is serious because it opens the brain to infection.

Your icon is hilarious.
