sorry i'm a bit late with the weekword, but i spent the morning taking care of my little artsygirl, who has been having some back pain lately. it's no wonder - the child is a contortionist and she never stops moving. it is nothing to find her scaling stop signs, hanging from the inside doorways of our house, bouncing high on a trampoline and landing hard on her can, or the most horrifying to me, watching her scale the rope up to the ceiling of the gym, ringing the cowbell at the top and waving hello from 20 feet in the air. so i took her to the doctor this morning thinking it would be a quick in/out visit with a prescription for an ice pack and motrin, but instead they sent us over to the hospital for a round of x-rays. when the doctor asked her how she hurt her back, she thought for a second and said, "you know, i think it was that limbo contest."
i'm sure she's fine, and we wound up even having a little bit of fun during our re-routed morning. and since our day didn't go according to plan (it rarely does, which is why i generally don't plan in the first place), i decided on DETOUR for the weekword. if you want to play, leave me a comment, and post your interpretation this friday - a drawing, journal page, photo, painting, a story - truly, any way you want to take it ;)
