It's a Family Affair

Some good family news this weekend! First, I went down to Largo early-early on Saturday morning to watch my nephew's football game. He's playing for the Tigers in the YMCA recreational league for kids 7-9. Alex had an AWESOME game - he ran for one lonnnnnnnnng touchdown, then he had another long run which set up his team's other touchdown, which came when he passed the ball to a teammate.

His team scored two touchdowns, and my nephew was responsible for both. My nephew ROCKS. The running touchdown was the first he's scored in two years of rec football, and it made his mama tear up. All of us - his parents, me, my mom and my dad - were all cheering wildly for him. It was a lot of fun and you could tell that he was pretty pleased with himself (even if he was fairly humble about it).

I spent Saturday afternoon shopping with my mom. We went to PetsMart (where I bought a new litter box for the cats, aspen pine bedding for Scuddy, and a Cat Dancer toy for Caygeon), Marshalls (two pair of underwear for $3/each), the Avenue (three shirts, two bras, and a pair of underwear for $75 - love those discount coupons), and Sonic (two Diet Cherry Limeades, please!).

Saturday late afternoon was spent swimming/yelling/cannonballing into the pool with Alex. Then I had dinner and came back to mi casa.

Sunday I met my dad and my brother and his family for a Father's Day dinner at Outback Steakhouse. Good fun, good company. But I realized halfway through my drive down there that I'd forgotten their Father's Day cards, so now I need to get those in the mail.

And very good news this morning - my stepdad had his first post-radiation checkup with his oncologist, and his PSA level had gone down from 5.0 to 0.5. Almost non-existent! A high reading is indicative of cancer, so the fact that it went down to almost nothing shows that the radiation was very successful. His oncologist was very, very pleased - he didn't expect the PSA to be that low so soon after treatment.

Hooray for stepdaddy! *mc hammers*

And I want a pool into which to cannonball. Dammit.

Freakin' awesome news. You've just got one cancer asskicking family there (even if you're not blood relations).

I'm SO glad that everything is looking good (seriously no pun intended!) for your stepdad. That's wonderful news! And just so you know, since I'm using a friend's computer right now, I don't have a favorites list and therefore had to type in your URL. However, I made a slight mistake when I typed in:

Oh! And I think Alex is a totally cool kid, AND I bought a cat dancer last week for Timber. She FLOVES it. And this is a cat that has thus far rejected all store bought toys in favor of my hair thingies (which she likes to accumulate in her food dish for some strange reason).

Yay for your stepdad! What wonderful news.

And trust Roo to bring in the histerically funny. Roopy, what did you find at www.thighwaygirl.com? I'm afeared to check...

Congrats! And love PetSmart - it's where all of the discriminating pet lovers go to shop. And, the only place in town I can find BBQ flavored, deep fried pig's ears.

Alas, rappy, there was nothing at thighwaygirl.com.

But in happier news, I think I have found a new domain name! ;)

I'm going to assume Mensch has a dog. Have you seen that PetSmart now has mint- and peanut butter-flavored tennis balls? Incredible.

I need to find a place to buy bird seed in bulk at wholesale prices. Feeding these damn ducks (now there are eight males), ducklings and pigeons is going to bankrupt me.
