Getting Back in the Groove


After a super busy weekend of pretty much non-stop go, go, go, I'm ready today to play some catch up...at least until lunch time.


My husband twisted his ankle at work on Saturday, or so he thought. After lunch we'll find out what's really going on with it. We're thinking now that he possibly fractured it, but we'll see at his Dr.'s appointment today. Yesterday it hurt him so bad to walk/hop, that he was literally crawling. I've known him a long time, seen him break a couple of bones (all in sports), but I've never seen him crawl.


The second oldest called this morning to see if he was still on the dental insurance plan. We kept him on it for awhile after he moved out of state, but took him off at the new year. Probably not the best of ideas since his wisdom tooth is coming in crooked and causing him a lot of pain. Isn't that the way that goes??  And my heart is aching for him because I know how much pain a tooth can cause. He says he's going to go to call a dentist today and see how much the visit will be cash-only. *sigh*

It's a little hard sometimes to let them make their way. You think you're doing fine and then something comes up and you want to run and rescue them, or at least I do.



I also have a sad daughter who is no longer 'dating,' the blue-haired boy (who no longer has blue hair), and when she's sad, I'm sad for her. Even though I know that this too shall pass, she is not so sure of it. ;)


Since I'm inadvertently doing a  big kids update, and to end on a happy note, I might as well go all the way with it. The oldest and his wife called yesterday to say hello and right away I got excited thinking the baby was here or coming, but not yet. Due date 2 days and counting, woot!

  1. Uh Oh! I still remember my wisdom tooth emergency. It turned out okay though. I hope our husband is on the mend very soon and baby is born happy and healthy.
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hi Rosey,
    I hope your husband's foot will heal quickly and your son who is having problems with his wisdom tooth will be free of pain soon. I also hope all will go well with the birth of your grandchild and your daughter will be happy again. Take care.

  3. Yeah wisdom teeth are no fun, neither are fractures and being screwed up, pain sucks big time.

    1. Agreed. I've had one big toothache and I remember it very, very, very well.

  4. Oooooo, the baby is so near! I know exactly what you mean about feeling the heartbreak of a child, boy do I ever!

    I had to do the cash thing for my son's wisdom teeth a couple years ago and it hurt me deeply, but probably not as much as his teeth did before we pulled them.

    I hope the news for your hubs is that it's just a sprain!

    1. Toothaches are the worst.

      Heartaches are a different kind of awful. The one going on at our house will be fixed by another cute boy who happens along, I'm sure. The one you guys have is much different, I know. :(

  6. Sorry about hubbies ankle. Sounds more than a twisted ankle to me too. The doctor will fix him up though.

    Yikes on the teeth issue. They do hurt indeed and I'm in my early 60s and can remember the pain.

    Oh the broken heart of youth. I know it will pass too, but it's so life altering when you're so young. Bless her heart.

    You're going to love your grand-baby. They rock like nobodies business.

    Have a terrific day. :)

    1. Thank you for the thoughtful well wishes for the fam. I remember teenage heartbreak too, it wasn't fun at all. And I remember how a tooth feels when it hurts. DEF not fun.

      I bet grandbabies do rock like no one's business. I can't wait to find out. ;)

  7. Well YAY to the last bit of news. Dang IT IS May already! That's sweet since Mother's Day is coming this weekend. Oh I feel sorry for your son. That happened to me. My dentist was so sweet to work out a payment plan for me.

  8. Bummer about your hubby's ankle -hope he's feeling better soon. And, be sure to get your daughter some ice cream to cheer her up. Whenever I had a broken heart, that's what my mom did for me <3

    Here's to a better week :)

  9. I'm sorry about your hubby's ankle! I do hope he gets it checked out asap and that it's not broken. I know from experience how bad those can be.

    Sounds like you might have a new grandbaby in time for Mother's Day! Sweet!

  10. Oh no! I was in a boot for awhile when I broke a special bone in my foot. If it was a little more off to the side I would have needed surgery. The crazy thing was, that my mom was in a boot at the same time because she got her ankle fused from having Polio. Then Isaak needed special shoes for his bowed feet, and my nephew Emerson needed special casts from his club foot. We were all a sad case! It was kind of funny in a weird sort of way.

    I broke my foot just from my leg falling asleep, Isaak cried, and I went to go walk and my whole foot snapped backwards. I yelled and couldn't get up. Mica came out of his room and said, "I guess we'll have to wait until Daddy gets home to help you." Daddy wasn't coming home for 3 hours. LOL

    Dental insurance- With wisdom teeth I think you can claim it as surgery if they put you all the way out. Then it could be claimed through medical instead of dental. May want to check on that!

    You are going to be a grandma so soon! YAY! That will be so exciting!

    1. Oh my gosh, I hope you didn't have to wait three hours for help. I imagine that didn't feel good at all once your leg quit being asleep. It's so weird how things like that happen, ins't it?? I'm sorry you had it happen to you.

      The story of your family is notable!

      I'll check on the medical, that would be so ideal! Thank you a ton for the info.

  11. I'm so sorry to hear about your hubs! darn it...will keep my fingers crossed for a good outcome...(not broken) I hear you about the kids! Mine is graduating this coming 30th and we are waiting for him to be done with school to get all of his wisdom teeth out...Dr. said do it before it starts hurting...thank goodness he still covered! Little one has a bad case of eczema due to allergies...everybody including daddy decided to do the lawn and up goes the polen and mold from everywhere and poor little guy is down for the count. Then I'm heartbroken because my son decide to go to a Paramore concert instead of his last prom...go figure...Kids!
    hugs my friend and keep us posted. P.S I refuse to call you grandma...we are about the same age and I'm just graduating one from hs and the other from Preschool...lol..not ready to babysit grandkids! so to me you are, dive-nana...or something. like that!, lol..Lizy

  13. I've heard so many friends/relatives with tooth issues lately - cavities, root canals, extractions. Is it spring? lol. And it is so painful, I'd want to run to take care of my baby, too. As for your no longer dating daughter - I think I'm still figuring out how to deal with loss. :(

    1. Tooth pain is ridiculous, isn't it? I'm sorry you have to deal w/loss. My daughter is too young to really 'date' but the heart doesn't feel any less regardless of age. It feels different when we get older, but not less.

      I just visited your place too. Happy birthday to your little one! http://www.homeonderanged.com/2013/05/first-birthday

  14. What a weekend you had! Ouch on the ankle! I hope it heals quickly! And yikes on the wisdom tooth also. My husbands came in completely sideways where the ridges were pointing towards the other teeth. It was very painful for him so I can imagine the pain your son is feeling. Mine never bothered me and I still have them in. They always try to talk me into pulling them, but if they aren't causing any pain, why bother, right? I hope your son doesn't get raked with the dental bill!

    And a big hug to your dd. I agree with Robin. Ice Cream makes everything better!

    1. My wisdom teeth are fine too. My oldest child's grew in sideways like your husband's, and he said it was ridiculous hurt. He was in the military then though, and had his own dental insurance.

      I'm agreeing w/the ice cream thing. Plus it's fun. :)

    1. I didn't get to call a dentist yesterday because we were so busy w/the doctor and then x-rays of the ankle/foot...and by the time I got home it was too late. Hubby doesn't have any fractures though, so that's at least a good thing. He is home all week though...

  16. Uggh....I hear ya. When it rains it pours. I would do the same for my son too. So does that mean your daughter is not going to the dance??? Say it aint so! I hope she finds a new friend to take to the dance and take her mind off of her ex. Hope your husband's ankle is pain-free soon.

  17. Sounds like the baby will be here in no time! How exciting!

    So sorry about your husband's foot and your son's wisdom teeth. Both sound very painful! And your daughter's heartbreak of course. It sounds like everything is happening at once in your family. But better days are coming! :)

    1. That particular child is a trooper too, doesn't complain, so the fact that he called to even ask if he's covered still on the insurance lets me know he's aching.

      And yep, 2 or 20, or 50...they're still our children. :)

  20. SO close ... then you get to see a grandbaby!!
    Your story of your daughter not dating the blue haired boy makes me scared to watch Reagan grow up.
    I know what you mean about letting them figure it out on their own but it's scary. Yikes!
    Thank goodness I have the wiser crowd to turn to in times of need!!

  22. Boo! Boo! Boo! Woo Hoo!! Hope hubby's ankle isn't as serious as it could be and that he's feeling better soon. And it must be really hard to let your kids go on their own. I was without insurance for a while when I was in college. It all worked out fine. And your poor daughter. I do not miss that part of growing up or being single. At. All.

    Congrats on almost being a grandma!!!

    I hope hubs ankle get sorted out soon. That sounds really painful!

    And I'm not there yet about rescuing our big babies, but I can imagine I'd feel that way too. It's hard to let it.

    Baby girl will indeed get well over her heartbreak, but for now it hurts. Maybe you can remind her of something she has been through that she didn't think she'd get past?

    Life and it's picks eh.

    1. Hi Colette! She's already mending a bit. All part of growing up, I know, but saying that wouldn't help (I know that too), so I'm just hear w/the ears for her. I think the ice cream idea being thrown around above is a good one too. :) Happy Tuesday!
