Swelling wasn't too bad, but it hurt to put weight on it. Guess this was just the reason we have been carrying crutches around the world with us. It is kind of a pain to do things with crutches though, so Friday morning I decided to take Ryan to school before eating breakfast. Rather than grabbing something quickly I could sit and have a leisurely breakfast while sitting in the recliner and reading my book.
Evidently my blood sugar was a bit too low for that. I ended up passing out at Ryan's school. Then I passed out a second time when I sat up. As people were helping me move to a more comfortable location while Lilit got me some juice and a piece of chocolate, I passed out yet again. For some reason people seem to think it is a bad thing to pass out, so they called Rob. Rich and Claudia helped get me home and stayed with me until Rob arrived.
Rob made me breakfast and then I got into bed to sleep for awhile. He made me lunch and then returned to work. I was feeling okay with the food in me, just really sore from falling down the stairs and then passing out and not being caught the first time down. Claudia brought Ryan home. It was a bad day for Ryan because I fell down AND Richard didn't bring his rabbit for show and tell. Bummer. Rachel brought Justin home from school. Rob came home early and I continued to rest.
Saturday was the charity sale that Ryan's school was hosting. Since it was so close to our house, I went for a little while. I then went home and let Rob stay to hang out with the boys.
|My crutches weren't as impressive as his stilts.|
|I thought that the tightrope guy was cool. Rob pointed out that|
it is a slack rope though. Does that mean it isn't cool?
|I realize this guy isn't super high or anything, but I still enjoyed it.|
Not something you see everyday at little neighborhood events.

On Wednesday I hosted the book club. We meet once a month and it is good for me to get out and about with adults and leaving the children behind. Only a couple more months before most of the group goes away either for summer vacation or to move on to a new place. I have read some books I wouldn't have otherwise chosen. It has been fun. I hope it starts up again in the Fall even with some of the key members gone.

The food was good and I ate too much. There was some really good bread (you can see it in the picture) in addition to the traditional lavash bread. I was surprised that I liked the aveluk. Aveluk is a kind of local sorrel, which as far as I am concerned seems to be a weed. Prepared well though and I had more than one helping. Also lots of greens, olives, some cheeses, pickled vegetables, and of course the khorovats, which are the local shish kabob thing.
On Sunday we awoke to SNOW! Our biggest snow of the year. Thought we had been in spring for awhile, but evidently winter realized we had missed out on snowfall I guess. We went to church, which ended up being a bit of a crazy thing to do as we encountered less than ideal driving conditions. When we got home the boys "helped" Rob shovel off half the driveway.
