Zealous student

 the Zealous student I am, HERE I am participating in Alphabet Thursday with Miss Jenny Matlock  Yes we are on vacation, and as I sit here with my morning coffee by the pool, kids sleeping, Mike working out at the gym, I thought I would tell you a little about my VACA so far.  Even though I feel like we have done a ZILLION things, we are still relaxing in between and having fun.  On our very first youngest JACK had to go to urgent care and get stitches! He jumped in the pool and hit his chin on the edge.  
OK so that puts a little damper on our ZANY family as far as the swimming and beach activities go, however, we are making due and and  still enjoying just the same.  
Did you know stitches do not look like this anymore?
NOPE they now use super glue!
So now we have been still going about pools, and beaches, however, Jack can't get his head wet...a bit challenging, but could have been so much worse.  The good news was we ZIPPED in and out of Urgent care! So it really did not ruin the day!
Now as far as eating and drinking go....well nothing is being short changed there. In fact come Monday my skirt will not be going up like this.

So I really hope that Miss Jenny recognizes my brown nosing qualities, and my ZEST for life and to her class.
That's it for today folks! See you next week!

Glad you are having such a great vaca! Sorry about the stitches, I know it's so cool that they use glue now. When I had my knee surgery, they even used it on me. It just washes off and leaves no's so cool, just like you and your wonderful posts. Glad you participated in Alphabe each week.

Oh my, what a way to start the vaca. I am sorry about the accident. Made me cringe when I read how he did it. It sure could have been so much worse. Broken jaw or even his neck. You just enjoy sitting out by the pool while I clean the house and now I am going to go up and walk on the treadmill that I just got back to yesterday.

Poor Jack! Glad it wasn't worse, but wait a pain in the tail for the little guy to not get his head wet. I had one summer where I had burned my leg horrible and couldn't get in pools and another summer where I broke my arm and couldn't swim. Those summers sucked!!! Glad he is alright and you are enjoying your time there. Can't wait to hear about your trip when you get back!

Too bad about Jack but knowing how you are, your family will still be having a fun filled time. And about not getting that zipper up, just worry about it when you get back. I'm sure there are tons of good things to eat and who wants to miss out on that fun. Glad you checked in. Hope the rest of your vacation is accident free. Great Z post.

I'm so sorry about Jack's chin! Bless his heart! But the glue is waaaaaay easier to go through that the stitches! OUCH!!

My Cameron had a broken arm at the beach one year and though we tried to keep that cast dry....alas, we failed and it stunk something AWFUL!!! The minute we got home we got that thing taken off and a new one put on! lol

Duct tape and a garbage bag did NOT work!

Have fun the rest of the time :)

Goodness, that is a start to your get away. Hope he is fine now. Yes stitches are different. I used to use lig. stitiches on inmates(I am a retired RN) who cut was fun! I do not miss it...blogging is more fun by far. Have a relaxing fun time.

Hi Debbie,
Sounds like you are enjoying your vacation. Sorry to hear about your sosn's mishap but it sounds like he is ok. I can relate to the superglue, when I was pregnant with Oli I fainted and split the back of my head open (head landed on a cast iron drawer puller Ow!)They had to glue me back together. I was so relieved they didn't have to shave my hair lol.
Wishing you lots more fun on your break.

Glue? Really, wow Deb. I'm glad you shared this just in case I won't be surprised. Hope Jack's feeling better...but you know vacation, kids and the ER all go together so at least you have that of the trip over with.

Keep us abreast of what's happening tomorrow if you have the time since you've obviously found some restaurants you like. Good for you! Keep having fun!

What a ZANY thing to happen!
I have seen the new stitches, and they are so cool (if you can call an injury cool).
They heal faster and leave less of a scar!
I hope you are wearing your SPF and enjoying the sand and surf!

Oh boys and their stitches...or glue in your case! My youngest son split his chin open twice in the space of a month so he has a nice scar there. I was stapled after my c-sections, that was a weird experience!

I didn't know you were on vacation but I hope you're taking lots of pics!!! I've been so lazy about blogging lately but I did re-do a nightstand this week, next week I'm going to get started on our dining table and see if I can make it look presentable:) Have fun and tell those boys no more injuries!!!

Your vacation sounds wonderful. Well, almost all of it anyway.

I didn't know that about super glue. Next time we'll just save the ER charge and do it ourselves - ha!

I suspect with all that running around your zipper will zip up just fine!

Thanks for this fun stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday.

It is always wonderful to stop here!
