Because my body’s playing host to a virus of some variety I spent the bulk of this day in my life slurping prescription cough syrup on the couch whilst watching pit bull puppy videos on YouTube with Ellie (my pit bull puppy).
Bevan dropped Amanda and I off at San Francisco International around eight o'clock this morning and she headed home to Chicago while I hopped on a flight to Dallas to celebrate my nephew Cole's thirteen birthday. I landed in Texas just in time to catch the crazy-go-nuts ending of a college football game featuring the Michigan State Spartans and the Michigan Wolverines at a bar called the Drunken Donkey and then we went back to Chad and Devan's place in Lewisville to eat popcorn and watch Avengers: Age of Ultron in the living room and I did not even cry this time.
Now Blake, Cole, Peyton and I are having a sleepover in the boys' room (see above photo) which, thus far, has consisted of the three of them watching dumb videos on YouTube while I try to keep my eyes open.
Before their school year ended earlier this week my hilarious mail pals from Down Under presented me with one final parcel, inside of which I found one mammoth Christmas card, twenty-two grin-splitting letters and more friendship bracelets than I can count.
