First and foremost: A huge, massive, enormous THANK YOU to those of you who donated to Chad’s Lung Transplant Rehabilitation Fund! Lindsay texted me the other night to say thank you, and when I went clicked over to see how much was raised, the donations (almost $3,000!!) and comments literally brought tears to my eyes. You guys are the best, and there really is so much good in this world.
I wish everyone could meet Chad in person. He’s so strong with an incredibly positive outlook and he has fought so hard to get where he is today. Chad is so deserving of our help, so thank you, thank you, thank you to those of you who donated. I know Chad and Lindsay are forever grateful for your generosity. I am too!
So, it snowed here yesterday. Ugh, I am not ready for winter.
Murphy isn’t either. He’s not a fan of snow.
He is, however, a fan of licking dirty utensils in the dishwasher, which is typically highly illegal in our house, but I wasn’t paying attention until I saw yogurt all over Murphy’s face.
C’mon, it’s kind of cute, right?
Here are some eats from yesterday with my grades for each of them:
Whole Foods Organic Vegetarian Chili (Mild): A-
Echo Farm Butterscotch Pudding: A+
Class Beef Stew in the crockpot: C- (I wasn’t a fan of the recipe I used. Too bland.)
And we’ll conclude with a cute dog photo…
Murphy had a blast running around and playing with Bentley (Kerrie’s new puppy) yesterday afternoon. These two are such clowns when they are together. Watching them act like little freaks totally made my day!
