It’s not that I’ve forgotten about you. It’s just that so much has happened since I last left you that I haven’t had the energy to start. So, to quote Inigo from The Princess Bride, let me es’plain — No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

1. Our trip was wonderful. We went on a kayaking excursion, which was fabulous. Pictures (and video if I can figure it out) to come later.

2. Ray fell on hard tile at my sister’s house THE FIRST EVENING WE WERE GONE and chipped her front tooth and bonked her head. Plus, she was on T.V. These two events were not related. More on that later.

3. When we returned, she was not herself. By Sunday, I was worried enough to call the pediatrician (as they are not open on Sunday, I actually spoke with someone in Spokane…I guess it’s their 24-hour nurse hotline or something), who recommended the ER. So, off to the ER we went.

4. She got a catscan and it was determined she had a concussion.

5. Cue: mother crying, baby whimpering pitifully.

6. Monday, I noticed that she was having neck pain and difficulty tilting her head back or moving it from side to side, so off the the pediatrician’s office we go. Diagnosis: torticullus. Sounds like a delicious pasta dish, but no, a cricked neck, possibly caused by an virus in the muscle. Yeah, I know, I didn’t know that was possible either. Treatment: ibruprofen.

7. The rest of the week has been spent not at the doctor’s office or ER.

So that’s it for now. I’ll post pictures soon. If anyone out there knows why I can’t download my video clip, please let me know.

Oh, and this is the wall decal I decided to go with. The seller is going to make me a custom decal that is the same but will fit inside my tiny little bathroom. She’s going to shrink it down to 50″ instead of 78″. I can’t wait to see what it looks like on the wall.
