Well.... more than a week ago while playing baseball, Gabe started limping. He was thrown out on the base, and he limped back to the dugout. A dear friend and fellow Elite parent checked on him, and he appeared fine. The limping only lasted a short time although at one point later that day or the next, Gabe did say he though he may have rolled his ankle a little. He wasn't limping or complaining of pain, so we really thought nothing of it. This weekend, Saturday as a matter of fact, Gabe ran to catch a fly ball, caught it, stumbled and fell. Later that same day I happened to notice a large bruise on Gabe's left ankle similar to one I had when I screwed up my ankle years ago. But his bruise was obviously not a "fresh" bruise. That night he mentioned his right leg hurt. We iced it, but saw no bruising, etc. My husband suspected he may have pulled a muscle when he fell. Sunday Gabe played ball all day. Sunday night just prior to the championship game, the coach came to me and said that Gabe was limping pretty badly.
Monday morning, he woke up and was really grouchy and complaining that both of his legs hurt. It's benchmark exam time at school, so what do I do? I called the doctor's office and luckily, they had only one appointment available at the end of his school day. I'LL TAKE IT!! Upon check in, the nurse took us straight to xray, and they xrayed the ankle that is bruised.
When the doctor examined him, he said both of his ankles hurt and his left leg. What the heck? He was complaining that his right leg hurt, that's the leg we iced. He said, "Well, that leg was hurting." According to the xray, he chipped a bone in his left ankle and strained it - probably last weekend. That's why the bruising is not fresh. He also sprained his right ankle and pulled the muscle in his left thigh. He probably did that when he stumbled and fell. She suspected the right leg was sore because he had been favoring that left ankle and made it worse when he fell, but there was no muscle pull in that leg. WHAT THE HECK?? How can our child be that banged up, and us not know it?? Why wasn't he limping or complaining more? This boy is apparently a beast that is practically oblivious to pain, either that or ALL of us missed it. How is that possible?

Oh, by the way.... they won their tournament. Although Gabe had been crushing the ball most of the weekend, he didn't hit very well in the championship game. I truly can't believe he did as well as he did this past weekend considering how banged up he was. Bless his heart.... Sometimes these kids are just too dang tough for their own good.
Well.... that's just a few of the what the heck moments I've had this past week. What about you? Have you had any moments lately that just made you scratch your head, and say, "What the heck????"
Let's see if we can find any head scratchers with regard to fashion.
I have to admit that her low-heeled designs are much more to my liking. See what you think. Two of my favorite colors: red, and turquoise.
Pink studded denim shorts. Ummmm.... first of all these shorts are waaaay too short, they're basically panties! Secondly, it seems like those studs would make sitting just a little uncomfortable.
Ummm..... yeah. I dunno.....
I think it's time for me to get some new glasses. I don't really like to wear my glasses, but during allergy season, I wear them much more often. So, when I do wear them, I want to at least be flattering. I think I'd really like to get some Warby Parkers. Have any of you ever tried them? If so, please share your experience. Well, thinking about eye wear made me curious what there might be out there on one of my favorite sources for WTHW, and I was not disappointed. Let's take a look at just a few of the eye wear items I found.
Uh oh.... Speaking of glasses, I hope my youngest remembered to wear his today. He's been wearing his contacts so much, I completely forgot that he took his contacts out Monday and has been wearing his glasses. This week is benchmark exams at school, and he'll need those glasses. I can't remember if he had his glasses on when I dropped him off at school. YIKES!
Well, I suppose this is it for today, folks!
Happy Hump Day, ya'll!!
