Today is my husbands first day back at work after his surgery. I haven't been able to get him to sit still the entire time. He is still using his crutches, but can get around quite well on them. We have had a trying couple of weeks, though. Car trouble. Those two words can make anyone cringe. We are (still) in the process of buying a minivan and we were test driving one last week that we really like. My husband went to test drive it again and find out what we can get for a trade in for my car. He called me to say that he wanted to think about it for another night, which was frustrating enough but then about 30 minutes later he called back to say that our car broke down as he was leaving the dealership. AAAHHH!!! Our car is a good car and never really has problems except for this problem. The same thing happened this time last year except last time my husband was in Iraq so that was a lot more stressful! Anyway, if we would have just bought the van we wouldn't have had to deal with this situation and put money into a car that we are getting rid of anyway. So beyond frustrating!

On a plus side, we had our second Mops meeting today! Who-ho for Mops! We had a couple come teach us some self-defense techniques and now I really want to learn Muay-Thai. It is something that I hope I will never have to use, but I really can't wait to show my husband what I learned and 'practice' on him. Uh, as long as I stay away from that knee!
