I woke up this morning to good news… and bad news. The good news is that Cooper is doing great and seems to be running 100% today. It’s been exactly one week since he got sick, and he finally got his appetite back this morning. He ate a cup of pears, one fried egg, and three pancakes for breakfast. He was so hungry, he didn’t even feed Louie one bite! And now, the bad news… it’s snowing. Again. We have had snow covering the ground (anywhere from 2-6 inches) since January 13th. JANUARY 13th!!! I don’t think Iowa got the memo from the groundhog, because spring is nowhere in site at our house! Cooper thinks it’s pretty cool. It’s too bad it’s like 3* out so we have to stay inside.
I forgot to mention the Colts in yesterday’s post. I am not a big football fan, but I did watch the Superbowl on Sunday. This superbowl had a lot of significance for me. When I was a little girl I LOVED the bears. I had a Refrigerator Perry sweatshirt and pictures of Jim McMahon (I don’t remember how you spell McMahon?) all over my room. I remember watching the superbowl the last time they played, and learning every word to "The Superbowl Shuffle". On the flip side… when I was in college at UT-Martin, Peyton Manning was in school at UT-Knoxville. I don’t know how much you all know about UT football, but it’s kind of like IU basketball back in the glory days. Everyone in Tennessee walks around with shirts on that say "I BLEED ORANGE", and college football is the main topic of conversation for the entire season (and most of the off season). When Peyton went to play in Indianapolis, it just seemed fitting that I follow him to my home state and become a Colts fan. I also have tons of respect for Coach Dungy. I think his soft spoken, humble nature and the example he sets for his players and fans is something that all coaches should take note of. When they won Sunday he made a point of saying that being a Christian coach was much more important then being the first African American coach to win the superbowl. He just proved what I already knew… he is one class act! Anyway… WAY TO GO COLTS!!!
