Its been a while since we last updated. Same as ever we have been busy busy. We decided to start painting our bedroom ( a beautiful shade of "swamp water"). 1st night of painting Kaylon definitely noticed the change on the wall. I couldn't stop him from making his way over to the only painted wall in the room. He put his hands all over the wall and then rubbed the base boards and scratched his nose before I noticed. I came down the ladder as fast as I could and immediately started washing him off. Then I proceeded to touch up the paint and the baseboard. Not 30 min later he was in it again. Silly boy.
Anyway to the point of the story...paining day 2... we were a little more than half way done ( its a big job, our room has 7 TALL walls) and started to clean and pack up to head back to LaMarque. Ryan was about to jump in the shower, Kaylon was on the floor playing, and I started to put the room back in order WHEN I knocked over the nightstand that was holding a hammer. Isaw the hammer and knew it was going to hit my foot. Instantly I had the that hammer really hurt! I looked down and this is what I saw.

Yes...the hammer had a nail still in it from when we were pulling them out of the wall and some freaky way the nail landed perfectly on my foot and the weight of the hammer pushed it right in. Jesus Christ style. I yelled at Ryan that we need to go to the emergency room. Of course he panicked thinking something was wrong with Kaylon. Kaylon was fine. After Ryan had a double take of my foot the trip to the ER was in full swing. Ryan did a great job of getting us ready and loaded up to head to Baytown. Needless to say...several nurses and even 2 doctors came buy to look at the freak show. They all assumed I was using a nail gun. After I was used as a human pin cushion...I couldn't even feel them take it out. Thankfully it only nicked the bone and wasn't lodged in.

Anyway...we are all better now! I still have a whole in the top of my foot, and some pretty good bruising but that is to be expected after you have a foreign object jammed 2 in to your flesh right?
