The Run Down

Lately, we've been spending Saturday mornings watching two of our grandson's baseball games. They start at 8:00 and only last an hour. Charlie and I will usually go out to breakfast afterwards. Although this last Saturday, I walked in the March of Dimes - march for babies fundraising event. I was bummed to be missing a ball game, but knew it was for a good cause. I was touched to see families who wore t-shirts in memory of their own babies. My heart felt for them and in turn, made me feel so very grateful for my own children and grand-children.

The walk was 4.2 miles but felt like 5 miles, because you had to go at such a slow pace in order to walk with over a thousand people. There was a great turn out!

Charlie went to the baseball game by himself. When I got home, he mentioned to me that his ex-wife was there. I was proud of Charlie for staying; he usually "hightails it out" whenever she is around. I wish I was kinda there though... just to see it all unfold.

We had our first B-B-Q of the season Sunday! Rob and Nessa came over. Diandra was home; still doing her homework, but she came out and moved her studies to the kitchen table while we watched a movie. It was really nice.

I have been fighting off a cold and so far, it hasn't gotten the best of me. The last time I was sick was over a year ago during my studies with algebra! I shouldn't complain. I feel bad though, last week I had a low grade fever and now Charlie is feeling icky. This will be the first time in two years he has been sick with a cold. Isn't that crazy? Charlie never got sick during his chemo; this is not counting the chemo symptoms which is completely different.

I have a test tomorrow night and only four classes left! So far, I have gotten 100% on all of my tests. It is getting harder as the weeks goes by. Wish me luck and say a prayer for me!
