Moving Mishap

I'm sure anyone who's followed us for the last week knows we are moving. We are pretty much moved out and now working on moving in to my Uncle's farmhouse. 

I've been fortunate to be able to arrange a work schedule where I am in the office on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and work from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that I can work from a reclined state. I'm not sure that I have mentioned it but for work, I am a recruiter for a global commercial real estate company. So I focus on my phone interviews on days I work from home and live interviews and meetings on the days I am in the office. Eventually, I may have to flip flop to where I'm only in the office two days a week but we will cross that bridge when we get there. My goal
is to work as long as safely possible so that I can have as much time off as possible after the babies are here. 

So today, I worked out of my parents' house while Adam worked on changing out furniture. In the process of switching out washing machines to our extra-large capacity, high-efficiency washer, he smashed his finger in one of them. I've never known Adam to willingly go to the urgent care clinic but when it didn't take much urging on my part, I knew it hurt him pretty bad. So away we went to the closest urgent care clinic which is about 20 miles away. 


We did have quite the wait but they were extremely kind and helpful. We had a good time laughing with them, talking about our quads, and made the best of a not so fun situation. Adam certainly kept them entertained. He went to have it x-rayed and came back with the most awesome sticker ever:


In the end, the radiologist did not think it is broken so they splinted it and we will be icing it. If he is still in a lot of pain in a week, he's supposed to go back. 


All in all, we are fortunate it wasn't worse but glad we had it x-rayed. And I guess Adam is pretty happy to have a free pass from moving all my stuff for a few days!
