National Lampoon Vacation Continues

Kyle spent 5 days at his mother's house with his foot elevated. A twisted ankle aggravated arthritis he did not know he had (Like a 90 year old, said the doctor) which turned into cellulitis. "This antibiotic and rest will either cure you immediately or you will go into the hospital for IV treatment."

While he was at his parents I was tending the dog at Susan and Paul's. He has taken this seriously and luckily the inflamation is gone.

Yesterday we went to meet a friend at Starbucks. Kyle was limping along a saw a lab mix tied to a sign post. He looked very cute and Kyle bemoaned the fact that he couldn't make it over to pet him... I obliged. He promptly snapped at my nose and took a bite. I know... I know....

So a few hours later and 10 stitches at the Northside ER my formerly perfect nose now look like Roman Polanski in Chinatown. It's actually more superficial but right now the effect is quite unpleasant.

I need a non-stupid story. The winner will receive a 75% off find from my Target New Year's Eve shopping spree.

It's an auspicious start to 2010. In like a lion?

Happy New Year to ya'll from Georgia.
