Day Two Hundred Sixty Seven

I felt my cold hit me a little harder when I woke up this morning.  However, I didn’t want that to stop me from getting out of the house.  Dave was busy working on his motorcycle so Grandma Sherry and I took Walker and the dogs for a walk this morning.  It felt great to get out into the fresh air.

A couple of hours later, Dave went to pick up more parts and was kind enough to take Walker with him.  Grandma Sherry and I got the grocery list together, grabbed the backpack and the dogs, then headed to the grocery store on foot.  I wanted to get my steps on my pedometer back up again and I knew the round trip to Vons and back was about 2 miles.  When we got to Vons, we grabbed a Starbucks and a vanilla scone then sat on the stadium steps overlooking the harbor.  It was so nice to relax, drink our coffee and have some quiet time.

Grandma Sherry and I figured out how to play Canasta today.  Grandma Sherry had played as a child.  I thought I remembered playing with Bryan and Linda years ago, but it was nothing like the Canasta I thought we had played.  Grandma Sherry proceeded to beat me up in Canasta because apparently, I hadn’t figured out what the strategy was.  She helped me a lot trying to figure out what I should be playing.  We had a great time and played well into the evening.

In the meantime, I had put Walker in our bedroom at about 2:30 p.m. to try to get him to sleep.  By 4:30 p.m., he was still awake watching TV.  I was just about to give up and bring him back into the family room when I discovered he had finally fallen asleep.  He slept until nearly 7:00 p.m.  I kept asking Dave if we should wake him up and he kept saying, “No”.  I knew this was going to be an interesting evening with a cranky 3 year-old whose sleep schedule was all messed up.  Unfortunately, I was right.  But about about 30-45 minutes after he woke up, he became normal again.  However, he stayed up until almost 10:00 p.m.  I hope he sleeps all night!
