Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

My brother challenged us (my other family members) to blog more. Really, I have every intention of posting more ... it just never seems to happen. I don't know why. It's not like I'm not on the computer enough. Sheesh!

So, Amazing Race is back on TV right now. Yay! This is my favorite of all the reality shows that come on (not that I watch many of the other ones.) The trouble is I haven't been able to see much of it yet. Every Sunday night has had me out of the house for some reason or another. A week ago, I was so happy because I finally got to watch it ... or so I thought. I sat through most of the show, picking out my favorites and the ones I hoped would finish last.

It was 8:50 and the teams were just starting to reach the pit stop, when Cameron came screaming downstairs holding his finger. He had apparently been cutting some green pepper when he managed to slice his finger instead. While I was tempted just to tell him to sit and hold his finger for 10 minutes, we jumped in the car and headed out to the emergency room.

2 hours later we returned, proudly showing Matthew and Spencer the stitches. Cameron managed to impress the doctor, who exclaimed "nice one!" when he saw his finger. ...and I never did find out who reached the pit stop last.

He was due to have the stitches out yesterday, due to infection, he gets to take an antibiotic for a week and then have them out.


  1. Kids have a way of thwarting the best laid plans. I hope Cameron's finger heals nicely and the infection goes away quickly.

  2. There will always be reruns. If you are need to know who won, search the blogosphere....there has to be someone who blogged about the results.

  3. I hope Cameron's finger heals quickly. I feel for you as I totally know what this is like.

  4. Looks like Cameron & Jason are going to have to start to share war wound stories with each other.

  5. it must have been a good one if the doc made a comment like that!

  6. Yikes - he must have sliced it good to need stitches. Sorry you missed the Amazing Race ending. I haven't been able to watch it the past couple weeks either...

    Yikes! Scary stuff... I always cringe when I cut myself, so I'm not sure how well I'd deal with one of my kids doing it. :S
