My surgery was successful--thanks for the prayers. . .I had a left closed reduction of the distal radius and two pins put in. My cast is a short one and freed up my elbow, fingers and thumb, all of which were immobilized up till then. I'm so excited about having more mobility!! The out-patient surgery folks at Landsdowne
A clear canvas upon which I will have Aidan put his name and draw pictures of dinosaurs!
Yeasterday was Lee-Jackson day here in Virginia. Yes, I know, they were Confederates. . .but, they were Virginians and remain today Virginia's favorite sons! I remember having the Monday off from school for Lee-Jackson Day. After I graduated, Reagan signed into law that we should commemorate Martin Luther King on his birthday. In their infinte wisdom, Virginia began celebrating Lee-Jackson-King day. Yes, a bit ironic, eh? I remember not starting the Spring semester in college until after Lee-Jackson-King day. Thus it stayed from 1983 until, in 2000, someone finally wised up to the incongruity of Lee-Jackson-King day. . .And so, most local governments, courts and municiple buildings are closed on Friday for Lee-Jackson day and on Monday for Martin Luther King day. Nice four day weekend Virginians! : )
Aidan got a cute Cars flashlight in his stocking. . .he turns it on allllll the time. The other night, we were leaving his room after getting his Jamas on. The lights were off and he had his flashlight. . .he came out and, turning the flashlight on, shined it down the hall into our bedroom and said in a low newsman sort of voice, " There it is, Mommy and Daddy's bedroom." He then bounded down the stairs while I wiped the tears of laughter off my face!! What a crazy kid!
Finally, Okay all you IA people, what do we do to travel with our dual citizen (Russia-American) child with two passports?? We want to possibly go to Mexico this summer and I want to do it legally, but the State Department website isn't very helpful. Any tips out there??
