Hubby was on the edge of his seat. Well, on the edge of his recliner sort of kinda. Hubby is not an excitable person except when it comes to his Cardinals. He gets concerned. He will let out an oh no. Or say he would not have called it that way. Now remember this guy has the sloth as his spirit animal. The team won and he did not even change his expression. Our son called immediately from two states away about the win. Hubby just cracked a smile.
Sunday afternoon was another cliff hanger of a game. The Cards, also known as the Cardiac Cards, won with a tie breaker double base hit in the top of the ninth inning. Still Hubby showed little excitement even though this clinched a post season playoff berth for the Cardinals. In addition the Cardinals' win made it a sweep of the Cubs in a four game series in Wrigley field. The first time for that feat since 1921. Still not much of a reaction. That's the guy I love and cherish!
His tempered reactions have always been a huge reason our marriage has survived and thrived for 52 + years. My quick temper was a negative from the start. Slowly through the years he and his family have evened me out a lot. Of course I have also been the one that was willing to take risks at times. Some did not go too good. Others worked out for the better. Basically we have been a pretty good fit.
Other than the ball games this past weekend we have had grand animal duties. Son, DIL, two of the grandsons and Grappa (DIL's dad) all went to Arkansas to attend parents weekend at the granddaughter's university. We chose to sleep at home but spend time at Son's home during the day and evening. That means DJ was sleeping here, too. With us. In our bed. Friday night our first chore was a bath for her. She was smelling like a dog. She loves playing in the water so bath time is easy. Once dried she smelled like cucumber melon. Much better.
Cough and voice are improved. But the breathing is still not easy as it should be with the heat. Guess that about catches us up on all the happenings.
Ya'll take care.
