Ca va bien 

Mike tried to play the "Oooh, my hand is hurt so I can't put on my shoes to go to school!" card this morning, but all he got was some lousy assistance with putting them on. :)

Removing the glass from the window last night was a lot harder than I expected it to be, requiring the use of a screwdriver as chisel and the partial disassembly of the frame. LUCKILY this window was the one now permanently open to let there be a place for the air conditioner, so it's not a problem to have one pane of the double glass missing. (I have a lot of complaints about how this how was built, but I have to admit they didn't skimp on insulation and energy efficient components.)

It went okay, though. Got all the little glass bits washed off my frontage and out of my hair with no damage done, and Caro found me gloves to wear for the task. But what I SHOULD have been wearing was one of THESE!

Gilda was right 

Well, now I know why MIKE has been Mr. Crankypants for several days. Guilty conscience. It seems he broke a window several days ago, and has been anticipating our parentally outraged discovery of same ever since.

We didn't notice because it was one of the ones covered in foil to help keep out the excess of afternoon sun which is nice in the winter, but not so in the summer. The jig came up, though, when he got the bright idea to try to clean it up himself....

So I had to get up an hour and a half earlier than I planned in order to bandage the boy. Luckily it is only a surface cut and home care will suffice at this time.

And now here's the part where I sigh and say, "Oh, well, could have been worse."
