I’ve gotten lots of feed back that you guys love my This n’ That conglomeration posts so here we gooooo
Shoulder update: Remember that I screwed my shoulder up? It’s equally better and equally worse. It’s the strangest thing – I can go a few hours without even noticing it hurts and then I twinge just the wrong way and I need to stop what I’m doing and rest because it hurts so bad until the Tylenol and Ibuprofen kick in. The better is so much better and the bad isn’t getting any better. I follow up again on Friday and see if I need an MRI. I’m hoping some more time will prove to be beneficial and it won’t be an issue by the time my appointment rolls around. It has really helped that I’ve been able to rest this week (just the way my work schedule landed.)
Carver and Craig were both wearing John Deere shirts the other morning so we had to get a picture! They are such good sports.
It’s been raining literally all week – cold and rainy and dreary. So when Craig put on his sherpa flannel jacket to keep him warm, then Craig and I were matching!
The boys got to hang out with their great-grandparents on Monday! Craig’s Grandparents – Merle and Grandma “Dee Dee” are so helpful with the boys and we usually leave with an entire basket of produce too! Carver always tells me that Grandma Dee spoils him and he always gets plenty of chocolate milk, candy, cookies, and all those delicious things that Grandmas have stashed away.
If you’re counting, my boys have 2 grandmas and a great grandma. They also have a living grandpa, living great grandpa, and even a living great great grandpa. Compared to me, I only ever had two living grandparents and they both passed away before my senior year of high school.
Meet Gannon, my tiny escape artist. It’s like 55 degrees out, raining, I’m waiting for Carver to get safely off the bus, up the driveway, in the house, through the front door, stripped down before he tramps through the house. In just that amount of time, Gannon was out the back door, barefoot and exploring the puddles from all this dang rain. Carver and I spent a good few minutes running through the house trying to find him when Carver saw him out the window just exploring. He’s been having a TERRIBLE time with all this rain. He wants to play outside SO BAD and throws several fits a day because he’s trapped in the house with me.
Check out this beautiful painting I “won” at a silent auction last weekend! I needed it to add to my vintage nursing memorabilia collection. This was painted by a young high school student who donated it to the benefit. I specifically love it because if you look close enough she’s wearing a surgical mask over a first mask (likely an N95) just like I do in the ER when I’m working in the pandemic. The pandemic has forever changed nursing and my career as a nurse so I love that this painting represents a nurse during the pandemic.
I’m gonna need a bigger shelf here soon! (and yes, that is a poster on the lower shelf of a nurse lighting a cigarette for her patient!)
Can you believe how big these two have gotten? Just one week apart, here’s my son Gannon and his cousin Georgia.
That’s all I’ve got for today folks! Thanks for reading!
