If it ain't broke....

Today's wordart is another request that I had sent to me over the summer. I hope you like it. I got the inspiration from a commercial for a car. On the ad, the letters in the "boxed" word (on mine, it's "broke") are each a different color. I this think this one would be cute if the letters were colored to match the layout you are doing.

It's kind of ironic that I'm posting this wordart today. The reason I only posted one wordart last weekend is because, well, my daughter broke her arm. Her husband had Army reserve training that weekend, so I had to go stay with her and help her out on Sunday. This is her 3rd broken arm. Considering that we are only born with two arms, that's quite a feat! LOL. Any way, this arm, she had broken just above the elbow when she was in kindergarten (she was swinging on a neighbor's fence). Her left arm was broken in fifth grade while playing on a slide at another friend's house. The biggest problem that time was that the arm pretty much "froze" in a bent position, and has been that way ever since. We tried an operation at one of the leading children's hospitals in the nation, and we even tried the Shriners, but nothing worked-- and no, it is not psychological, it is physical.

So... this past weekend, she was taking out the trash, tripped on a wire in the garage, and broke (you guessed it!) her right elbow! Now she is stuck with two bent elbows. She can't do much of anything, really. They did a CT scan last night, and she goes back to the doctor's next week to find out what they are going to do for her. They want to make she she completely recovers the use of this arm, since it is her "good arm".

Maybe I should make a wordart of "Oops, I did it again!" LOL If I didn't laugh, I'd cry! Someday she'll look back on this and laugh, too. I hate to admit it, but it is kind of funny watching her try to do things.


  1. I could use an OOPS, I did again wordart. My daughter broke one arm and later her wrist.She was only 2 and 4.Nowadays, they probably would have wondered if she was being battered.(She broke one on the swing set and one riding a tricycle.
