It's been a month since I last posted. I know this because my last post was about the Ladybug's 9 month birthday and today is her 10 month birthday. She is such a fun baby. She's so happy. I know I say it every month but she really is. And you know what? She loves men. She is such a daddy's girl. She loves her granddaddy, her Cee Cee and especially her brother. Don't get me wrong - she loves me too - but she is really a fan of the boys. Already. Great.
The Doodlebug has started playing soccer at the YMCA. He missed his first practice because he was sick. Then his second practice got rained out. So the kid had never played soccer and never practiced soccer and what does the coach do? He puts him at goalie. First game - he's the goalie. He did great though. He's played goalie at every game and I must say he is a pretty good goalie. He's back a school and having a great time. But he is counting down the days until he gets to go to school with me.
Ok, that covers the bugs. Now onto Chad. He started a new job and he's really enjoying it. He's going to start back at school working on a couple of degrees for the new job. He's doing it online though so he's not going to have to spend a lot of time away from us. He went on his annual trip to the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival with my dad and they had a blast - as usual. Carrie came in from Kansas to visit me while her husband and her dad were there too. We chilled with the kiddos, did some shopping, drank just a little - we had a great time. I'm hoping we actually get to make the trip to the festival next year.
Now me. Remember back it June when I had the privilege of wearing "the boot?" I graduated from the boot and have been in tennis shoes with some sort of orthodic insert to help with the tendonitis - even did physical therapy this summer. Well, I'm at my parents house and they have these new floor mats at various places around the kitchen. Now, I'm not going to say they are platform mats but there is a definite step off - and I stepped off wrong. On my bad ankle. All the way to the floor. The fall, I think, fixed my other problem (not really, but it is better) and now I've got a new problem. I've aggravated a tendon that goes from the front of my ankle all the way to my knee - it runs along the right side of my shin - and it hurts with every step I take. SO, I'm back in the boot. My doctor did x-rays to make sure there was nothing fractured and there is not. But 3 days in the boot and my pain is much better. And in September I had the flu and bronchitis. Good times.
- Jason - Happy Birthday! The Clue party was a fantastic hit. Why the long faayyycccee?
- We got to hit the Greek Fest this year! Yay! We usually miss it because of the blues fest but this year there was no interference. Opa! Greek wine is good. And the margs we had afterward were a hit too.
- Chuck and Melissa have joined the homeowners club. They bought a phat townhouse in Midtown. The townhouse has a tad bit of history in it's short 4 year existence but we won't go into that.
- One month till we leave for Las Vegas. Vegas baby!!!
