Can you see all of those buttery smears? LOL

I started this post several hours ago, but had to stop midstream, and have only just now, 6 hours later been able to get back to it.

My poor Mom fell part way down her stairs and broke her ankle.  Again.  The same bone she broke several months ago.  Slightly different place on the bone, slightly worse break, will take longer to heal.

Yeah, right.  An hour later it was finally ready, then I had to head to the checkout, and every single one of them had a line that was 3 or 4 people deep.  I nearly cried.

Our pizza is almost here, so I’d better wrap this up.  Hope you are having a sparkly day.
