Andy, are you watching on a pay per view? I wanted to watch it on my computer while doing other things. (two screens) But Fox wanted me to pay. What's with that? Yet it is free on my TV.

I'm here in bed next to my snoring hubby. Obviously I have my laptop here, and I was just thinking...

When hubby was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I almost fell apart. It was pretty much a death sentence with such a low survival rate. But he battled it and he had great doctors and now he's still clean after four years.

He has regained his energy and is working. He's amazing.

And now I listen to his breathing next to me while the rain beats against our bedroom windows. The veggie garden we planted is greeting the rain, and so are my new flowers on the decks.

I'm listening to life all around me, and I am truly humbled.

Life is precious and totally amazing. I am filled with gratefulness and humility.

Thanks Taxy, I am trying not to. I do a bit, check email; do a bit, go read; do a bit.... So far it is working for me.

Today my goal is to get all the stuff off the floor, my computer and sewing machine out and remove my work table. That should give them enough room to work. All the edibles for my cakes are out so I don't have to worry about that.

I am proud of myself for how much I am getting done and how I am pacing myself!

I must tell you that your reflective thoughts really touched me this morning CCL. Thank you for sharing such beautiful emotion.

Sounds like you have a lot of work ahead. It's good you've found a way to pace yourself and keep feeling human.

That was a fun game, wasn't it? I couldn't help noticing how many of the players were ex-Red Sox though. I don't know the reasons your team lets good ones get away, Andy. I know my team does because they are either a small-market team or have a cheap owner. The opinions vary on that one, depending on whether you know how Moneyball is played or not. The Sox don't mind spending money though.

Isn't it amazing how much brighter and clearer the good things in life become when you've weathered a tough patch like you and your hubby have? Your post made me smile when I first read it, and I've kept smiling since. Wishing continued good health to your dear hubby.

I flew an old doberman to a new home north and flew another young doberman down to Southern Calif to a new home.
