Manic Monday: DIY Fountain and a Fractured Wrists!

Welcome to my first ever Manic Monday posting!  I thought I’d start us off with a nice DIY because I love doing crafty stuff like this so much!

As far as more ideas for finishing that off, you may want to wait until all the clay is dry again before using the silicone sealer since moisture can cause issue with it adhering to the surface.  But you didn’t come here for a craft project, did you?  Well…

Today was a pretty manic day actually.  We ended up installing a wall mount for our TV (my husband did most of the work on that), I put up two more parts of the ceiling boarder onto my living room walls, helped the husband with mowing the lawn after replacing the mower blade that had gotten damaged by a fist-sized rock, helped install an extra set of cabinets in our kitchen, moved an old coffee table out of the living room to make way for a desk for my littlest to do homework on, and…I don’t know did I do anything else??? Oh yeah!  My morning started out with taking my older son to the local clinic for X-rays to check on his wrist that he’d injured.

Come to find out he had a slight fracture in one of the bones.  It’s his first broken bone, and as far as broken bones are concerned, not too bad really.  He does have to keep his wrist in a brace for four weeks, and he can’t use the wrist for much of anything at all.  Thankfully it didn’t need setting, and it’s not so painful he needs prescription pain killers.  Also he doesn’t require a full plaster cast, that would have sucked!

How he managed to break it was he was riding his bike in town while I was in the City with his brother running errands before getting his dad from work.  He had to avoid a car, not sure how this came about, and instead wiped out on the road a little.  Afterwards he was scraped up a little, nothing serious, I don’t even think any blood was drawn, and his wrist hurt a little he said.  There was no obvious signs of major trauma like protruding bones or bruising, though he admitted that lifting things really hurt.  We put a wrap brace on his wrist for the weekend and as soon as I could I got him in so that they could take a look at him at the clinic.  Actually, it wasn’t until the x-ray came back that it was for sure that he had a fracture.  Before that, even the doctor thought it was just a sprained tendon in his wrist.

I’m really just thanking God it wasn’t worse…also, I’m never leaving him alone again!

I’ll see you all on the flip-side.
