We are home. I don’t think I was ever so happy to be home. Here is my house….
Wow…what a difference a blizzard makes!! I’ll take some more pictures another day and tell you more about that.
Kramer got out of his chair a few times today…. At lunch time Carver and Kramer watch a basketball game.
I listened and caught a view here and there. Two of our great nieces play for the Marion Indians. Their team is playing at state this week. One of the girls is a junior and the other a sophomore. They don’t get a lot of playing time at this point but the coach did put them both in at the end of the game. It was fun to watch. Happily they won so we have some entertainment on Thursday night when they play again.
The girls from the school where Kayla teaches are at state too. They play this evening so I’m going to put that game on too. It’s nice to have something to do even if it’s only watching a basketball game.
At half time of the Marion game Carver and Grandpa built some trucks.
I have the childcare kiddos here too. It’s a houseful and happily we’re all getting along pretty good together. Here they all are playing with Kinetic Sand.
If you haven’t tried this with your kiddos, I highly recommend it. I have this set of castle molds too. You can see the gal with the green sand made little castle structures. The really enjoyed this.
It was WONDERFUL to hang out with them. WONDERFUL. A person doesn’t realize how comforting normal is until it’s taken away. Many of my childcare parents said to me, “Are you really sure you want kids today?” The answer is YES-YES-YES. I am clinging to normal. It truly is comforting.
Neighbor Girl came over. It was a no school day because of the blizzard. It had been awhile since I’ve seen her so that was fun.
I told you that Carver is with us while Kalissa is in the hospital….well last night he slept with me in our bed. I had to read him stories before we fell to sleep. In the middle of the night I woke up to him full out laughing. He was dreaming. It was so funny.
AH…honestly, there is nothing I can say more than it’s so good to me home. I’m doing all the things I often grudgingly did with complete joy- like baking cookies. AHHH…What a joyful thing to do!!
I’m a little disappointed in myself that it took a week of staying in a hospital for me to truly appreciate all the wonderful things in my life.
Kalissa keeps sending me Gannon pictures so that’s helping make life happy too.
As for Hubby…he’s still in quite a lot pain. It’s manageable but certainly not completely comfortable. He’s on a pretty high dose of pain pills so it makes him a little loopy. He hates that so is trying to lower his dose. It’s so hard to know what’s better…be loopy and in less pain or with it and more pain. He’s experimenting. I left him along with Carver last night long enough for me to take a shower but honestly, I don’t know that I want to let him by on his own for a lot longer.
We go back to the doctor for his oncology doctor appointment on March 8th.
It sounds like I might end up having Kalissa in my nursing unit on Friday when she gets out of the hospital. She’s not feeling super comfortable yet either. That’s okay. Taking care of my family is something I LOVE to do.
I’m happy to report…We’re all on the mend!
