I'm supposed to be at the doctor for the injection at 9:30 and everything in me says "Do not do this". I wondered all weekend if it was just fear of the pain, after the painful steroid injection last fall. BUT. I have given it much thought and prayer and I don't think it's fear. I'm going to the appointment and will be having a long talk with the doctor before he does anything. I need to have a cake over at the church for our sweet neighbor's funeral. So, this morning, a few bullets from Super Weekend:
- Quayd's having issues with his contacts. Trying to get him into the doctor today too. Funeral, doctor appointments...crazy day.
- SuperBowl without Carol was different. We texted back and forth. Change is strange.
- As I was preparing SuperBowl food, I saved every cucumber peel, popcorn, you name it so that Doug could take them outside to the compost for the deer. Within an hour, there were eight out in the yard having their own SuperBowl party! Aren't they beautiful. I'll share more pix through the week.
- Our SuperBowl Party Star was this divine sandwich, which Natalie has served her family for years. WOW!! It was so divine and it even has olives!
- The rest of the menu included Caramel Corn, Corn Dip, Hot Bean Dip (like queso), chips, dips, crackers, relish tray, Oreos (a rare treat at our home), lots of Diet Coke, home made pretzel bites (From Pinterest...more on that later) and lots of Diet Coke! There was more but I'm getting full rethinking it! The sandwich... the coke... that's all that mattered!
- We're back to the inversion. Fog. Lots of it. And cold. But, it's pretty, if you are behind a camera.
- My SuperBowl thoughts... I barely knew who was playing so I didn't care who won. Born in Baltimore, Like the Red and gold uniforms and the underdog. Winner either way. Half-time...Quayd thought Beyonce was pretty immodest. Doug said, "She forgot to get dressed." I didn't care for the dancing...Sex sells. UGH. She did a great job singing, if that's your cup of tea. The power outage was quite interesting twist. The commercials...no question: The farmer by Paul Harvey and the Clydesdale made me cry. Loved them both. Next fave was the Dorito dad and the Princess costume, "Is that my wedding dress?" "Could be." OH MY, how funny was that!
- My Super Sunday highlight was definitely the discussion in my Sunday School class. I love the topics, love those who come, love studying and preparing for it, love that I never get through half of it because we are discussing it together instead of me lecturing. LOVE IT!
- I'm off to get ready. No grammar check, no spellcheck. Life is good. BUSY, but good!
A friend is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be!
