I had a huge "bump" yesterday and didn't have time to share it then so here goes now:  I bought a 2008 Kia Optima on Sunday and it was delivered to me yesterday.  "Happy Dance, Happy Dance"

I love it!!!  It's Candy Apple Red and drives like a dream.  I know it's not some peoples dream car and quite frankly it wasn't mine either but after test driving it and having my best friends check it out with me, I got a great deal on it and the Dealer even have some paint chipping issues repaired.  So right now it is my "Dream Car".  It's beeaauutiful!!

So are you gonna name it?    :D

    My morning bump began with a cuppa Perfect Peach coffee from my Keurig.  Luke arrived at 8 and we have been playing legos most of the day.  Ate out at my favorite restaurant. 

    New cars and calls from old friends are indeed great happenings.

    My "bump" yesterday was riding in B-Kay's new car with her.  It was very much fun, and great for a few laughs too as she learned where all the button and levers were.

    Today was the last day of school, so my "bump" was all of the cute cards and letters that I received from my kids thanking me for being their teacher.

    I took off early from work and had a massage and pedicure.  Was going to get a manicure, but was to limp to do anything except come home.

    I had a nice bump before I even crawled out of bed this morning. Apparently the Spouse Thingy fed the cats before he went to bed at 4am, so that they wouldn't wake me up at the buttcrack of dawn. Granted, I still had Max trying to shove his nose up mine, but at least he was quiet and gentle about it.

    LOL.  I feed my one cat before I go to bed early AM and expects to be fed 4 hours later.  If I do get up and feed her, she wants to be fed again when I'm really up.  I just give her a little at a time, but this is ridiculous.

    One of my bumps today was receiving Oberon green dragon-fly pond K1 cover.

    A butterfly landed between my one-year-old great-grandson's knees while he was playing in the grass. The baby saw it, but he was unsure what it was and just stared. My wife ran in to get a camera and when she came out the butterfly took flight and landed on her finger. We didn't get a picture but it gave me a bump.

    Jeff, your story gave me a bump!  Lovely!

    I just feel down my stairs.  How's that for a bump?  Not as pleasant as all of your "bumps".  My arm is bleeding a bit.  My knee has a pretty good size bump on it.  My ankle is asking me to please not step down on it.  My shoulder is screaming, you idiot, why didn't you watch where you were walking.  The good part is it was not my steps to my basement.  I'm pretty sure I would be at the ER and not posting on here about it.

    OT: I picked up three free lance jobs today.

    Thumper, when I read the first 18 words of your "bump", I thought for a minute there we were gonna get too much information.   ::)  Whew!

    Deb!!!!  Glad you're okay (mostly)!

    Do you have good mobility in your shoulder?

    RICE
    rest, ice, compression, elevation (nurse type people on board--is that still the recommendation?)

    Yay for the job.

    I did elevate it.  Because I couldn't get off the floor for several minutes.  LOL.
    I am going to go to bed in just a few minutes because I have to be up at 4.  That's the rest.
    I'm going to have an ice cream sandwich.  Could that be the ice?  JK.
    All kidding aside, thank you for the advice.  I have a couple of ice bags in the freezer.  I will take those to bed with me.

    I have stopped free lancing so much lately because I don't really need to.  But it's always nice to pick up a free lance job.  They pay really really well.

    I will have him at home for 1 more year.  He's going to the community college up the street for a year, then transferring to the Univ. of Maryland as a Junior.

    I think community college is awesome.  It helps them wet their feet before they away from home.   NC has some really good community colleges.  I wish we had been there when my kids were ready for college.

    Congrats to the high school graduates!!

    I will have him at home for 1 more year.  He's going to the community college up the street for a year, then transferring to the Univ. of Maryland as a Junior.

    My husband went to what was then called junior college, and our granddaughter who just graduated will be going to community college.  As Deb says, it lets them get started and get used to how different college is from high school without the additional change of moving away from home!

    Fear the Turtle!!! (Univ of MD graduate here...)

    An anti-inflammatory like aspirin or ibuprofen is good too.  ;D  (I'm not a doctor but I play a knee surgery patient on TV.)  Ice cream sandwich is always good for what ails you.

    I count three needed ice packs.  Plus, of course, the ice cream sandwich.  Hope it feels better by morning!

    I had the most embarrassing bump of all. Night before last I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I didn't turn the light on as usual and half asleep went to sit down and was in the wrong place. Here I am with my pants down sitting half on the floor and half on the little trash can next to the potty. After I completely fell off of that I hit the marble vanity top with my head. All I'm thinking is please don't have anything broken, I would have died if 911 had to come and get me off the bathroom floor with my pants around my knees. I have the most glorious black and blue behind, a knot on my head and scrapes everywhere else. Not my most shining moment. :)

    Oh, my, Kathy!!  Ibuprofen for you, too!

    RICE.
    Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.

    (How does one elevate their backside?)

    My husband fell down night before last getting up out of a rocking chair.  (He'd kill me if I knew I was posting this on the Internet, LOL!)

    Hurt his foot and his already sore shoulder.  There must be something going around.

    Everyone take care!!!!

    It was a little hard to put a ice pack on it at work. Just kidding. LOL I have just been told by my Dr. that I cannot take Ibuprofen. I'm having some problems with my kidneys. Will have more test run after vacation.

    Trying to look on the bright side....  just as well you fell off the little trash can, else you might have peed in it.
