Camry's toy

So when I got up this morning, alllllllll of this yarn was in a big knot. (To be fair, they were a bit tangled in the bag to begin with.) However now this knot was dinner-plate sized. Camry had fished the pink ball out, the one in front. He drug the yarn all over the living room, around tables, chairs, pillows etc. Then into the kitchen and back into the living room. Can you say "dangerous situation for crutches"?? DH had come in the living this morning when he woke up -- caught Camry mid-mess. He told Camry "ooooooooo you are in TROUBLE!" I sat on the floor and wound alllllll the balls back up so no more trip-hazard. What a mess. Crack me up.

Heeheehee - Camry got a new toy

DH came home from shopping with a cat toy - green and yellow feathers on the end of a stick.  Camry went NUTS!  Instantly comes running over, attacks it and pulls off a yellow feather in 1.5 seconds.  When I tried to hide the toy so I could type this blog he started running from one side of the recliner to the other popping his head up like a meerkat trying to find it.  He is DESPERATE to kill the feathers.  Oh my word.  Best present ever!!!!!!

Things I have learned so far

About being in a cast:
1.  Mom's are a wonderful marvelous thing!!  You want them around!  Especially ones that are both calm, reassuring and sympathetic.  They manage the situation and get everything done while helping you feel taken care of.
2.  Casts are not a wonderful thing.  You get itchies underneath them, they make you sweat, they weigh a TON and are generally a pain.
3.  Not having your hands available makes pockets necessary.  I have taken a recyclable grocery bag and made it mine.  I have my pain meds, water, book, cell phone etc in it so I can hang it around my neck when I move.  I may need to wear my apron around for the same reason.
4.  Kids like to stare at people on crutches.
I'm sure there will be more things I learn as this goes on.

Meet Herman

This is Herman. He lived down the road and Mom found him on her walk today. He is the prettiest shade of red-orange and has spots. Mom brought Herman home to live in our yard. Anyone know what kind of lizard he is? Isn't he so cool!?!
