Happy (Belated) Canada day!

It has been a trying couple of days for us at Chez single mom.

First Monday night a friend, who I had just spent the day with on Saturday, was seriously hurt at work and we weren't sure that he was going to make it... things are looking up for him, but it will be a long road. If you know anything about trucking and winches... the winch flung back and hit him in the throat... he is lucky to be alive.

I took ML to the local Canada Day Celebrations to get my mind off of things, and we made not one but two separate trips to the medical tent. Once for sunscreen in the eyes (kids tear free no less) that took about 4 eye wash/flushing to get out. How she managed to getso much sunscreen in her eyes is beyond me....

Then as we waited in line for a hot dog ML leaned against the very hot BBQ and burnt her arm. It was at this point that I threw in the towel!! She was treated and we went HOME!!!

Hope your Canada Day was less stressful than ours!!

I'm so sorry!!!!! Not a nice way to start the summer!

I lounged, soaked up some sun, littleman had a friend over, we waited until dark, did some sparklers, I took lm's friend home then that was it for us! Not exciting...but relaxing....

I hope ML's arm heals quickly!

Wow! That is quite the day and not in a good way either! I hope both your friend and ML recover from their injuries quickly.

I ran another 10K at 8 a.m. and then went home and nursed my sore leg for the rest of the day. I think my running days are numbered...blech!
