Welcome to the Jungle

So, here we are hopefully watching the Giants kick Cowboy arse!!!  Woohoo!

This is going to be a nailbiter! 

Did you see the blizzard that the Green Bay Packers played in yesterday?  OMG, it was wicked cool!!!  The way football is supposed to be!!  I was happy that they won, too!  Go Brett!

I was also pleased that New England won.  I know, there are many Patriot haters out there... but I just love Tom Brady.  To me he is a young Brett Favre.  A born winner, and a hard-working quarterback.

I was very surprised that Peyton and the Colts lost today.  Their defense was non-existent, and they just fell apart.  I don't think the Chargers looked much better, just luckier, and I think that the Patriots will eat them up next week.

Enough football.  Yesterday, Pumpkin and I went out for breakfast with Ilene and Peanut, her daughter.  Our hubbies and sons were away camping together, so it seemed right!  LOL

Then, Kathy and my nephew J arrived in the afternoon!  Yay!  We had a nice dinner at the Longhorn Steakhouse together, with my parents.   J was so excited to be sleeping at Aunt Dawn's and even got to sleep with Pumpkin, which really thrilled him!

Kathy had a rough night.  She couldn't sleep!  I felt so bad.  She tossed and turned.  Her day at school went good though, and she is set to start the last semester taking 2 classes for her Master's!  She will have 2 more classes but is taking one in the summer semester, and one in Fall. 

The boys trip was a lot of fun!  My Hubby, boys, Bob, and DogBoy were in the cabin with the Webelo group that Fuzzy was the Den Chief (mentor).  This group is going to bridge over into Boy Scouts in about 3 weeks.  Very exciting.

The boys (all of them) had a 5 mile hike on Saturday, and also started preparations for their Metalworking badge.  They also split wood on Saturday, and as a good deed, split enough wood for the next several weekends of campers at these cabins.

The big news for tonight is the incoming snow storm!!!  PJ's will be worn backward, and the kids are already making plans for their day at home.  We will see... Remember, our school year started late due to construction, so the Board of Ed is going to be very, very reluctant to shut school for snow!  Of course, the kids are convinced that they will have no choice.  4-7 inches isn't exactly a blizzard, although it will be nice!!!

In other news, my injection site was barely visible yesterday, and today it was gone.  No itching or swellling.  I am so relieved that it was much better this week. 

To those that asked, no, the shots are not having an impact yet on my disease.  That usually takes a few weeks, or even months, but I am hopeful still!

Well, back to the game!

be well,
Dawn

Hope the kids get their snow!  I could go for that bowl of candy at the top there!  I'm hungry.  Waiting on hubby to get home with food.

GB was an awesome game, I like the patriots. They are 17 and 0. Superbowl material and winners in my book. Have a nice evening. ((((((hugs))))

Green Bay was a great game and I agree, watching a game in those conditions is the way football should be!! I like Brett too, I think he is in a league by himself compared to many of the younger players of today.  I hope the Giants win too ~ we'll see, it is almost over!  Happy to hear your injection site is doing well and that you had a good weekend without the guys around.  Sounds like they were kept very busy.

Sounds like the girls and guys all had a pretty good weekend. I'm missed the game
With the Packers yesterday, I would of loved to have seen a game played like that. Glad the swelling has gone down. Keeping you in my prayers on the smoke the shots begin working and doing their stuff for you. (Hugs) Indigo

P.S.  You color commentary was considerably better than Joe Buck's.

I'm actually very happy the Chargers won! seems like a great scout outing and I think its nice they split the wood for fellow campers in weeks to come. Seems like you got a handle on your injection/site this week; hoping the next one will be just as smooth and sooner than later you will feel some benefit from it!

and of course, I hope your kids get their snow day tomorrow :)

I love Longhorn Steakhouse!  I love just about any steakhouse come to think of it!  Glad you had a good time.  Linda

Let's Go Giants!!!    I'll be rooting for the Giants next Sunday!  Not a big Green Bay fan.  
What a nice thing for the boys to do, leaving more fire wood.  Glad their trip went so well.
Hope you get through your "snowstorm" in good shape.  If they miss too many, the schools just add the days to the end of the year.
I'm glad that your injection site behaved.  Sounds like you're on to something, taking the benedryl, and making sure the medication is room temp.  Are you required to change the site each time?  Or is there enough time in between that you can use the same spots?  Hope you'll see the results you need from the Enbrel.
                                                Hugz,  Leigh

sounds like sunday was a great day overall for your household -- esp. with the  giants big win!  =)  i like brett & tom brady, too.  it's hard not to when they are both such hard workers and seem to enjoy playing so much!  the colts game *was* a shocker, wasn't it?  can't wait for the title games and, then, the super bowl.  do you think we'll have an historical 19-0 team?!

Always a good thing when there's "no itching and swelling"!!!!  The cat pictures are hilarious!!  I'm an Eagles fan...BUT I have to say I am rejoicing (just a little) that the Giants triumphed!!!  Feel well and know you are in my prayers!!  Love & Hugs ~ Irene

WTG to the Giants!  I was glad Green Bay won also.  The Patriots...blah, yeah I like Tom Brady; just can't stand the team in general and wish someone would knock them out.  LOL..don't think that will happen.  Maybe the Giants?  Glad the boys are home safe and sound.  I'll send you an e-mail about the stuffed peppers.  There really is no set recipe; just an old Slovak thing.  HUGS n Love, Chris

Sounds like you had fun, good. The boys probably had a blast, doing the guy things.  While you are having snow, we had 79 degrees with a little humidity...and that awful fog that so many crashes occured in...(over 70 vehicles) of course, our state in their infinite wisdom decided to burn some brush...which contributed to not being able to see at all. I can see lawsuits all over the place. Take care and throw a snowball for me...love, Sandi
