End of November

Today brings the end of November. The temperature has dropped and still no snow. I am starting to wonder if I will get a white Christmas.

Christina has a good day at school. Her and mommy butted heads today, but it didn't last long. Christina and I had our normal routine of talk time(she tells me about her day), dinner, play, and our walk outside. I bundled her up in her snow suit and boots and she laughed and giggled all the while outside. She really enjoys the colder temps outside. And she likes the walks in the dark.

Bedtime went overly well. The princess was tired, no nap today. She smiled when I put her to bed with no tears or talking.

We also turned on Skype and said "Goodnight" to mommy. Angela was doing homework and it was nice for Christina to be able to see her and say goodnight.

This evening I am thinking about old times. Gives me a little smile.

Visiting with fam

Today Christina and I went to see James, Robyn, Sarah, and Ruby. Christina watched Ruby swim. Christina walked around beautifully and laughed when walking by the water slide and getting splashed.

Christina said "Hi" to everyone and also shared her monkey with Ruby. Christina also showed everyone how she could count from 1 to 10 and count backwards from 10 to 1.

When we came home she hung out mommy and then they went to visit grandma Patti. Christina sat on grandma's lap and typed on the computer.

I left for the afternoon to have coffee. It was nice to relax a bit. I also went to the gym again, quite happy for myself. Christina and I walked lots when I came home before bath. Christina wore me out.

Today I was/am sick. I have a cold, yuck. Angela is sick also and Christina is getting sick.

Today Christina and I played at home. The goal was to keep Christina from getting sick. So far she is doing ok. We had a lot of fun walking up and down the hall and peeking out the window. We also sang, read, and sat on the couch and played with some toys on our lap. Angela was at the coffee shop doing lots of homework.

We planned on seeing Uncle James and Aunt Robyn, but Christina turned on me at nap time. Christina was tired and happy to lay down. She did not take a nap however, only quiet time. The tired girl became a cuddle me and limited playing girl.

To get out of the house, I thought Angela, Christina and I could go out for dinner. Christina was uncooperative, even for Angela. Dinner was good, but I had hoped for a better outing.

Today Christina and I went swimming at the YMCA when Angela went shopping and did homework. We had a great time. Christina did wonderful walking and kicking.

I went to the gym this evening and feeling pretty proud of myself.

I am almost done with the update to email everyone. I hope to finish and send that when Christina takes a nap tomorrow.

Thanksgiving Day

Well it was a pretty quiet Thanksgiving here. Christina and I played and sang. We did a lot of walking. My back and knees feel it.

We went for a drive to the gas station for our outing today. It wasn't much but gave us the chance to sing in the car and stay out of the wind. I have a stuffy nose and sore throat so it was more for me. And I did not think I would be able to carry everything back while also carrying Christina.

Angela went to visit with family at her aunt's.

We opted for a different dinner menu today. We had steak and mashed potatoes. Christina ate very well. She enjoys the meat juices mixed into her potatoes.

Christina and I walked up and down the hall again after dinner. She took wonderful steps all day. Then it was bath time and getting ready for bed. Angela went for a drive to call a friend while Christina and I did the night time routine.

Another Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We all have something to be thankful for.
