What with hubby falling and breaking his arm - leading to a night in hospital for observation - and surgery later in the the week to install a metal plate. (there he is pre-surgery, sporting the nicotine patch as he tries to quit smoking for faster healing - or so the doctor says - and we seem to be going through a lot of milk all of a sudden)
And I offer here PSA #1 (Public Service Announcement)::::
Inspect your 27 year old wooden ladders well - for they may have hidden cracks that throw well-intentioned hubby's to the floor and break their arms. :-(
And PSA #2 :
Take care of your friends well - for they may volunteer (okay - I'm still astounded by that one) to do emergency taxi-service and nurse duty for outpatient surgery if you're scheduled to travel.
Yep - unbelievably hubby kicked me out of the house (not really - just told me to NOT cancel plans) while he recovered. "You don't need to sit around and watch me sleep". And our good friends took over the patient duties.
Because, I was tour guide and scheduled to rendezvous with family members from 4 cities here
for this event .
I am thankful for unselfish hubby and friends that enabled these travel plans to continue. (And happy Anniversary to us - 26 years yesterday)
(P.S. And I'm grateful for eternal nudgings from financial gurus Susie Orman and Dave Ramsey for having an emergency cu$hion in place for those unexpected happenings!!)
