Alabama Won, Had My Grandson, A Great Weekend

Hello Everyone,

I had a great weekend we had Ray and we had a wonderful time. He is such fun to be around. It is amazing to me how much this little person can brighten our life.

We have been real careful around him while watching Alabama games. My husband and I tend to get overly excited. So Larry watched the game in the bedroom and Ray and I watched it in the living room. Well I was very good at containing my excitment and not screaming obscenities. lol The last time I had him while a Alabama game was on I yelled when we sacked the quarterback and scared the poor little guy. We have taught him how to say touchdown and throw his arms straight up. Well Saturday I was doing my best to teach him "touchdown Alabama". So when I would clap he'd throw his arms up and yell "Touchdown Alllaaaabbbbbaahhhhhmmmmmmma" lol. It took forever for Alabama to get out of his mouth and it just made me laugh. He can say Roll Tide but you really don't understand it, might take a couple more weeks for him to get that down.

Alabama won and now we are heading to Atlanta!!! Roll Tide!!! I am so excited not only for us die hard fans but also for the guys on the team. We tend to forget how young they are when we are hollering at them while they play. I am excited for both of my nephews who are students at Alabama and will be experiencing a year there where Alabama clinches the SEC West. I also believe that we will win the National Championship!!! It's been a long time coming.

I also was lucky enough to run into my friend that was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Her doctor here has no experience with the type of leukemia they think she has and he just told her that he was "out of my comfort zone". So her and her family are going to Houston, TX to a doctor that does have experience with this type of leukemia. She really does need answers. You know the not knowing can drive you crazy. She has been upset over the reaction it has had on her family. So say a prayer for her that she gets some good news and it's not as dire as it could be.

Another friend of mine emailed me that she was moving to Houston, Texas. Her husband has been transferred and you know with today's economy you just have to go where the work is. So I told her I'd miss her and she'd better stay in touch.

Well I am heading to post some comments and read some blogs.

Have a blessed day!

Valerie
