Prince Charming

Last night we were standing in line at our favorite "healthy" fast food joint, Baja Fresh. I noticed a very nice looking man in front of us; black hair, olive-skinned, gorgeous black eyes with long lashes...etc...you get the picture! I didn't mention it because I am married to a wonderfully jealous husband! We got our food and sat down to eat.
While we were eating, Meredith piped up, "I just saw a very handsome man leave this restaurant."
"Really!" I said.
"Yes. He was very, very handsome, " she answered. "Maybe the most handsome face I have ever seen."
She proceeded to describe the man that had been standing in front of us in line! Then she asked Kelsey if she could guess the handsome man's name. Kelsey, being her silly self, guessed all sorts of crazy names. After guessing things like, "macaroni, rice, chair and grass" Merry said, "Nope. His name is Prince Charming!".
Amazing how a six-year-old's mind works!
As we were leaving the restaurant, Merry said, "Mom, I really hope that handsome man isn't married!".
I explained that if he was that handsome, he was probably either married, or well on his way to being married. Merry said, "I want him to wait until I grow up!".
I tried again to explain the slim chances to her, but she insisted.
Then she said, "I know he's not married. He lives all lonely and has a cat! And when I grow up I am going to marry him!".

And his name is Prince Charming!

Hi there. So...its been awhile since I've posted...no particular reason, just been busy.
Lots of stuff going on around here.
First of all, we went to NJ for two weeks. The girls got to go to my in-law's summer day camp. They had a blast!
We also took a day trip into NYC and saw The Little Mermaid on Broadway. The girls LOVED it! And...so did we! It was an incredible show.
The day before we left, I fell down four or five wooden steps and landed on slate. Niiiice. I was very sore on the 12 hour drive home, but just figured I was bruised up. By Monday I was really sore and decided to visit my chiropractor. Felt a little better after that, but by Wednesday, I couldn't lift my left leg off much more than one or two inches. So, I went back to the chiropractor. He couldn't adjust me because I was so sore, and he suggested I get in to see my doctor. I got an appointment on Wednesday afternoon, and after a quick examination, was told to go get some x-rays. Turns out my doctor was worried that I may have fractured my hip!
Thankfully, there is no fracture....I have been getting better, bit by bit. However, I woke up this morning with pain in my hip again, so I am not sure what to do! I am trying to take it easy, but this is a difficult feat for me! Its summertime, I have two little girls that need to have fun, we are having the young adults over tomorrow night for a get-together (that means house-cleaning), and I have Sunday School and choir to prepare for.
So, say a little prayer for me this week....I am NOT a good patient. I need to heal, and fast!
Hope you all are enjoying your summer....
