I woke up this morning with every intent to bounce out of bed, take a shower and head to beehive soccer (our little neighbor girl is on a team - you know, they all swarm around the ball). Instead, I woke up kindof groggy (too much fun playing Wii with our friends Reid and Cathy last night) and I felt like I might be getting a sore throat. So, I skipped the shower, put a warm scarf around my neck, slapped on a little make-up and went to the game anyway. It felt like old home week on the soccer fields. Amy and Angie showed up and rooted on their "old friends" daughters. We had a wonderful time and they were all so CUTE.
When the games were over, we decided to stop by Grandma's house (my mom) to see how her day was going without my dad at home (he was attending a funeral). We found her sitting in her chair with a bloody napkin around her finger. She thought she needed a little extra attention, so she cut her finger with a table knife while making lunch. She wasn't sure if it looked bad enough to go to the doctor. Needless to say, we took her in for stitches and a tetunus shot. Afterwards, we went to lunch. Eventful day...but everything turned out ok~
When I arrived at home this afternoon, I could smell "halloween" in the air. Leaves were blowing everywhere, it had just begun to rain and fall was all around us. I love this season.
After yesterdays blog from Angie, I almost didn't want to write anything. I don't want the message to exit anyone's head. Lung cancer is still the dirty cancer. It is way underfunded. It doesn't belong just to smokers anymore. Let's help make lung cancer matter too!
Next week will be a busy one for us. 2 appointments with a specialist for Rick's mouth, then chemo on Tuesday. When will I have time for my TIVO'd shows? Just kidding...
Love you more than all the leaves changing color...
Hey, have I mentioned lately that I danced with Ellen?
