Today Was A Good Day!

Today was a very good day for me. My mom and my youngest daughter’s step-mom, went to Rome to babysit this morning. That freed me and hubby to go watch our middle granddaughter play some 3rd grade Basketball. Her game started at 8:00 a.m. and they were playing at a school about a 30 minute drive from our home. It was raining and messy, but I still felt good.
That’s one of the few things that will get me out of my home; going to see or watch my grandchildren. I have social anxiety and do not get out much, but I’m getting better and that makes me feel better, so I’m getting out more. My friend told me that it was my youngest grandson that did it. He pulled me out of my (shell) home and got me going and it’s true. I have been out and much more active since he’s been born.
I don’t drive, for several reasons, so hubby has to drive me everywhere. Did I tell you how much I love and appreciate my hubby? He takes me to my doctor appointments and takes me to see our grandchildren. He encourages me and watches over me like a Hawk. I try to never take him for granted.
Anyway, back to my day. So, we went to watch our granddaughter play some basketball. She has previously played on a church league for 3 years. This year is her first to play on her school’s team. The girls on the other team were big girls, not taller, but they outweighed my granddaughter’s team by 20 to 30 pounds, and they were (mean) aggressive. They would reach right in and jerk the ball out of our player’s hands. They could never hang on to the ball long enough to try to shoot a goal. One of the other team’s girls would aggressively jerk the ball right out of their hands before they even got to their goal post. And the Ref’s, don’t get me started, (rolling my eyes), but they never called a foul or traveling on the other team. Our team, however, was getting a call ever time they took a step.
It was a good thing that the other team couldn’t shoot goals very well or the score would have been outrageous. The game ended with an 11 to 3 score. Our girl’s lost and my granddaughter was feeling down. It was worth going though just to see her smile light up her face when she saw we were there to watch her play. Plus, I got to see my other two granddaughters. My oldest daughter has 3 girls.
After we left the basketball game, hubby and I decided we would finish our Christmas shopping while we were out. First we stopped at the Dollar Tree. Do you have a Dollar Tree store near you? I love the Dollar Tree. Then we went to WalMart, did some grocery shopping, gave hubby some hints on what I would like for Christmas, and headed home.
Wow! Three places in one day! I set a record! My knees, hips, and lower back were hurting, but I was still feeling good. Yes, today was a good day.

    1. They are truly grand! Not much of a chance to recover; an one-hour drive, (one way), yesterday for doctor’s appointment and another doctor’s appointment on Thursday, (same amount of time as above. The back again on Saturday morning to babysit. Riding hurts me the worst, but I’m still feeling good inside and energetic, even with the pain. So, something is improving. 🙂
