Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

My poor nephew.  He
fell out of a tree directly onto his shoulder and snapped the top of
his bone off that goes into the shoulder.  Good Golly.  He's
at the hospital right now waiting to get surgery.

In his honor, I am doing a contest.  One of you will win.a computer course called Computer Science Pure and Simple
— this comes with Book 1, Book 2 and a disk.  It retails for
$104.97.  People are going nuts over this program.  As a
matter of fact, we are going to start selling it in our Schoolhouse Store
Neat-so, eh? 

You will also win a very cool book called Learning For Life,
by Teri Ann Berg Olsen.  This is a compilationg of almost 3,000
quotations by more than 1,000 people on teaching, learning and the
pursuit of knowledge.  For instance, I'm gonna just flip the book
open and slap my finger down… and here is what it says: “Extreme
busyness, whether at school or college, kirk or market, is a symptom of
deficient vitality” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
I don't know what a kirk is, but, there you have it. 

To win — in honor of Levi– tell me that you want to win and tell me about an injury that one of your kids survived.

    I know the contest is over but I thought I’d share my scariest child injury story. My friend was watching my girls for me and as I returned she was feeding them lunch. My third child was less then a year old, but eating baby food. She was in a little portable chair on top of the kitchen island. We were both standing right next to her, she was pushed to the middle of the island. Well, let me tell you that doesn’t work. We didn’t count on her using her feet to push herself off the island onto the floor. The chair collapsed into pieces and she didn’t cry. Not one sound. I picked her up and she still didn’t cry. That scared me to death. Then she went completely white and limp in my arms and closed her eyes. I was going a little crazy at this point. I was on the phone to the dr and my friend was on another phone to ask a nurse. They told me to wait an hour to see how she does before bringing her in. Goodnes! I called my husband and he came over from work and took us to the dr. I wasn’t able to drive. I thought for sure she was going to have brain damage. Once we got to the dr. office she started to “wake” up and crawl around on the floor. It turns out that nothing was wrong, she just went into shock from

    the impact on her body. Never, ever, ever, leave your child on a kitchen island.

    My personal story is surviving a big oak tree fall on me during a wind storm. Luckily no major injuries but I was sore for quite a while. I was clobbered in the back by the branches as it fell from the roots.
