I have decided one of these weeks I am going to post on Sunday that nothing happened this week, everything was uneventful, and life is calm.
But again - not this week. My oldest son plays on a softball league for men in his age group of which he is 30. Unfortunately some hot shot short stop who thought he was Ozzie Smith decided to stop my son from rounding 2nd base and threw the ball as hard as he could directly into the right side of my son's face. This person was successful in completely shattering his check bone, the orbital bone and whatever the bone is below your check. There is shattered bone fragments in his sinus cavity at a minimum and some dental issues to be addressed later.
They are going to operate on him Thursday - May 3rd and repair the damage, put in 3 plates to replace those bones broken that cannot be repaired and clean up the damage to his palate. Right now he has no feeling whatsoever in the extremely damaged areas. we are just praying that after the trauma is gone he will get it back.
Now my son should have been wearing a helmet at the very least and a face mask at the most extreme and he was not - however - the person that did this to him should have tracked him down at a bare minimum to apologize or done something to say "I am sorry". It is that lack of an act of simple manners that has me the most angry.
Plus I hate this new version of Google - I'm just saying!
So my winners are:
Cara Elliott - Too Tempting to Resist: MaryAnne B
Cathy Maxwell - Lyon's Bride: Lexi B
Diane Kelly - Taxes, etc: Erin
