Must blog...

Does anyone else out there feel guilty when they don't blog? I do. I guess it's because I love when I click on familiar sites that have new stuff to see which makes me want to return the favor. Let's see--I've got approximately 5 minutes before I have to go to a meeting so I'm just going to do some live blogging here.

First thing that comes to mind is that when Su took Danny out of the car when she got home last night she stepped on a WASA (Water and Sewer Authority) switch cover that was in the front yard of our neighbors house. When the water company needs to turn on or cut water service, they remove the cover and using a long tool, reach down and turn a small valve. When she stepped on it, it tipped from flat on the ground to perpendicular, and she basically fell into it. It's a very small yet deep hole--about 15 inches in diameter and 2 feet deep.

She ended up with her entire leg up to her thigh down the hole. Not cool at all. Besides getting a bit scraped up, she also nearly dropped Danny. In fact he did hit the ground rather hard and it was his crying that alerted our neighbor Greg who ran over to help. He coudn't believe what he saw. It all happened so fast. Thank God both she and Danny were okay. She could have broken her leg or worse. And I don't even want to think about how hurt Danny could have been if she'd lost control of him when falling. I was upstairs when she got home and didn't hear any of this.

So. It's time to end this blog post. Moral of the story. Beware the holes with covers. -Monica
