What a day!
We had a very interesting day around here. It started off so well with Eric’s new job , soon after he came home we went outside to begin removing all the foliage stuff from in front of the house. When we moved in the places was full surrounded with shrubs, bushes etc..none had been taken care of and were entirely too big. Well between pregnancies and new babies we’ve removed most of the “stuff” ..including a very ill placed Maple tree in the front yard. This year we decided all the stuff in front had to go..it flares my allergies so badly it’ snot even funny! This is before:



Eric and I made relatively quick work getting out most of it the kids enjoyed playing and “helping”



worm hunters:



Worm habitat:



Taejan thought we needed the big equiptment:



Before long Robin’s husband Tom came over , he wanted the tall evergreens and 2 of the other bushes. He and Eric removed them while I fed the kids lunch. Then we got 2 more bushes out and it was time to get Ziah ready for Karate.. she went and got a comb and manged to winder her whole front section of hair into it..OMG what a MESS.. i was sure it was major haircut time..but a LOT of patience, and about 25 minutes later, I had manged to cut the comb itself out of her hair without cutting a single strand.Bet she never does that again! So here she is ready for her karate class!



Ah..i thought the hair thing was the worst part of the day..sadly I was mistaken! I went outside ( Taejan was napping) and put new mulch around the big Maple tree, cleaned out my van then set Declan up with his golf clubs:



now these are REAL golf clubs… I noticed his stance was ALL wrong so I went over to help him, showed him where to stand and as I was about to walk away he swings.. HARD.. his backswing knocked into the side of my head and knocked me into the ground. I have NEVER felt pain like that..ever..I don’t think I’ve cried like that since I was 8 year old. For a brief moment I couldn’t hear from my right, but I never blacked out or anything. My head hurt but more than that my ear was on FIRE.. I look at my hand and I am gushing blood. Poor Declan was so scared.. he was about to call 911 on my cell and I just told him to get Noah..quick! Noah came out and all I wanted to know was if the blood was from the outside or inside of my ear… it was the outside. Now Eric and Ziah pull in the drive..I am still on the ground crying…again I don’t think I’ve cried like that in 25 years! ( I have very high pain threshold.. have had 4 kids without meds, broken ribs..nothing hurt like this) He freaked not knowing what was wrong..and seeing my gushing blood was probably not very easy to see. I was finally able to get up and got myself cleaned up.my ear is gnarly gashed.. If cartilage can brake…mine’s broken believe me! I probably should have gotten stitches and it’s really gnarly..but I’m me and I hate spending the $$ in an ER visit..so I bandaged myself up and went on with the day. I had a slight headache and my ear is just unreal “sore.. but I’m ok. I told Declan he has a heck of a golf career ahead of him..LOL He feels so bad and I have to keep telling him it’s NOT his fault..Mommy should have taught him to look before he swings. I am now sporting a lovely gauzed up left ear and probably will for awhile as I don’t want to risk infection.

So after I was able to really move without my head hurting we went to the store for gauze and Eric went to Home Depot for wood.

See.. we are building a sandbox:



Since I really couldn’t help Eric I made Taejan:



We now have the world most giant Sandbox ( minus the sand for now..lol)



and to think Eric wanted to make it 10×10 and I had to talk him DOWN to 8×8 @@

We built one a few years back. We lined the bottom of it with landscapers plastic. Keeps the kids from hitting real dirt and mixing it in. And Tim built this netted cover to keep the cats, etc out but it still lets in the rain to wash it out. Oh and I am so sorry to hear about your ear. OUCH!

Oh man, Alison! That HAD to hurt! Poor Declan. I bet he feels terrible. I hope you heal quickly and with as little pain as possible.

Other than that (and the hair mishap) it sounds like a nice day.

I am so sorry about your ear. I really hope it heals fast! I would not have the patients to spend 25 minutes untangling the brush. That's a HUGE sand box.

Oh oww! Somehow I missed reading the part about your ear yesterday! I think you should go see a Dr.

Omg, how scary! I'm like you though and probably wouldn't go the ER either. But you probably should have anyway!

"it’ snot even funny" I was wondering if this was a pun intended kind of thing too, especially since it was referring to your allergies. heehee

Oh, OUCH!! I'm glad it's feeling better though! Other than that, it looks like you had a pretty nice and productive day.
