No, not my bank account....wait....well, maybe so. Yes, my camera...but I'm not really still stuck on that. Okay, maybe a little bit. But, I finally narrowed it down and I will have my new camera by the weekend! Unfortunately, having to spend money on another digital, throw in your purse and go camera, will hinder my plans for getting a digital SLR anytime soon. Oh, well. I gotta have a throw in your purse and go...'cause I gotta take pictures....everywhere! Those photography classes that I don't have time for anyway, will just have to wait! Not that I'm a great photographer....I just like taking pictures. I need help in the "being good at it" department!

Sunday morning Bible study. We couldn't go to Church because Claire was running a temperature. So we collected the children and had us some home church! I missed the sermon...and the praise band...and the hugs from friends, but how often can you say you went to church in your pjs...and never even left your bed!

No this post is about my mother. I shared on Saturday that she fell and hurt her back. Well, she did more than that. She fractured 2 vertebrae! So, the kids and I are packing up and heading that way tomorrow. My mom is in a lot of pain right now. They will not do surgery but want her to wear a brace and stay doped up on pain pills. If she heals this way it is probably the better way to go...but, in the mean time she is in A LOT of pain...did I already mention that? Pray for her and pray for us. Pray that I can be helpful while keeping my kids from bugging the bejebbers out of her! We will stay until Saturday to give my Dad a break from his nursing duties and let him go to work if he needs/wants too. That is one of the perks of homeschooling! I can pick up to go and school will come with us! The kids really love that part too. Who am I kidding? No one really, but this is my blog so I can say it if I want too!

That would be my Dad and Mom with Isabel after one of her dance recitals a few years ago.

Let me know if you need any help. I need to do SOMETHING. I feel useless. And don't hesitate to get me out of school early if you do need anything(jk). :)
But seriously, I can help.

I wanted to tell you about a couple of pain relieving creams. One is from "Pain a trate" The other is called Arnica cream. You should be able to get it at any health food store. This one heps the pain, but it also promotes healing. If she is able to take homeopathy,(no auto immune disorder) Arnica tablets as well would be really helpful.(prmote the healing. I broke my ankle a few years ago and had to have lots of pins and stitches(looked a little Frankenstein-ish) y lower half of that leg was nothing but a solid ugly purple bruise. I smeared that on as much area as possible and re wrapped it. The brusing and pain was sgnifficantly better.(don't mistake, um sttill will need pain pills!! I was on them for weeks!) We use a tube of arnica a week for kids bruises and boo boos. Good luck and you will all be in my payers!
