[Toddler ‘tude + crying baby = every single time I try to leave the house]
I am starting out kind of heavy today. Papa Gordon (Dan’s step-dad) is in the hospital. He was diagnosed with lung cancer a few weeks ago and things haven’t been going very well. Unfortunately, he had to go to the ER yesterday, but it may have helped to get the ball rolling as far as a plan of attack. I am so thankful he is doing better and that his pain is being controlled.
I am thankful that our Royals are in the World Series and are currently up 2 games. Dan went to the game last night and came home well after my eyes had closed. To those of you who aren’t in KC, this is a really cool time in our city. EVERYONE is wearing Royals shirts and EVERYONE is talking about them. The other day a man I am quite sure would have never spoken to me otherwise stopped me at the gas station and talked to me for 15 minutes about pitching, all because I had on a Royals hoodie.
I am thankful for cute candy corn Halloween feet.
I am thankful I had my teeth cleaned with no cavities.
I am thankful that Granny and Ina made apple fritters and even made me a gluten free one with oats instead of pie crust, which was perfect for dessert and breakfast and next day.
And, to end on a lighter note, I am so thankful that Ina forgot that she wanted to “go to the bathroom like a boy.” Two nights ago we had a 3 minute disagreement about it, but I held my ground as she continued to try to stand on the toilet seat. Thankfully, I eventually got her to sit down and she hasn’t tried it again since. That could have been a messy situation.
Have a great day!
