It has been a few weeks since my last blog post.  The delay is party attributable to a lack of interesting new things to write about and partly because my energy level has been a bit low.  On Friday, I finished up another chemo cycle...and the two "on" weeks of the cycle no doubt sapped some of eagerness to blog.  As always, I'm looking forward to my upcoming "off" week.  There's even more to look forward to than ususal since this off week coincides with Thanksgiving week.  Speaking of Thanksgiving, there are lots of things for which to to be thankful:

  • I'm thankful that my Mom and Rich came over last week while Jen and Aaron went to Boston for a school field trip.  I was able to take care of a blood transfusion and some heavy chemo while Shannon received some great love and attention from her granparents.
  • I'm thankful that I got to take a day off with Shannon while Jen and Aaron were in Boston.  We enjoyed our Daddy/Daugther day.  We watched Hotel Transylvania and spent some great one-on-one time together.
  • Jen and Aaron got to see snow on their Boston trip.  The Florida kids had a blast with a huge snowball fight in the hotel parking lot and even made some snow angels!  See photo below.

  • Shannon's cast is scheduled to come off on Tuesday.  Just in time to get both arms back in action at the Thanskgiving dinner table!
  • Speaking of Thanksgiving dinner...I can't wait for turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and, of course, some cream corn.  Jen's family loves to give me grief about my fondness the mushy yellow good stuff, but I don't care.  There is no shame in carrying on the tradition of the Texas side of my family.  
  • Nobody should be more thankful than the Gators for only having one loss.  We have zero offense, yet still manage to win games.  I think Florida State will hang our second loss on us this coming Saturday, but we're still having a great season when you consider all the crazy twists and turns in the college football season lately.
Of course, I'm most thankful for my family, friends and all of the prayers and support that I get.  I hope each of you has much for which to be thankful and I hope all of you have a great Thansgiving week.
