Sunday's events, Round 2

Last Sunday was the eventful yard accident that I posted pics of. This Sunday, as the Husband and I were grimy, sweaty, stinky, and tired, sirens were heard. My brother called me to tell me that the sirens were going to my mother and father in law's house that they are building. He said over the police/fire scanner he heard that a 57 year old woman fell down stairs. Yep. You guessed it. It was my mother-in-law. We rushed out there and they had her loaded in the ambulance. She was woozy and out of it. She had fallen about four feet or so down some steps that were leading up to a makeshift porch/deck. She fell backwards and broke her wrist in several places, hit the back of her head and also her back. She had her wrist casted and then got to come home. One more Sunday afternoon spent in an adrenaline rush. Damn, I can't take much more excitement. I wonder what this Sunday's Mother's Day will bring???

Hope your MIL is feeling better. Wow...she's 57 and she's already falling down stairs? Isn't that a little early?

Good Lord. Sounds like you should spend Mother's Day in the storm cellar and avoid sharp objects. I hope your M-I-L is feeling better. And so scary about your neighbor. Hope next weekend is completely uneventful.

Hopefully only flowers and pampering!
