I was able to baby sit 4 of my grandkids and still watch the chiefs game yesterday. mary had to take wabeno to the airport. that left me and the kids. the girls are spending a few days with us cuz their parents are out of town.
we had a good time. there were 12 of me and my siblings. we all had kids, grand kids and now great grand kids. i have been around kids my whole life. watching 4 was easy. these kids listen to misho. sure I spoil them but I can also tell them no. they know what they can get away with and what they cant.
i have been a Kansas City Chiefs fan for decades. there was a time when I became a fair weather fan. it was after our team would win at least 10 games every year then make an early out in the playoffs. they were a player or two short of being champs. that got disappointing.
that changed last year. I was back to being a hard core fan. I watched every game. it probably had something to do with our quarterback. it took the chiefs 50 years to get back to the superbowl. it only took 3 years, actually 2, for this quarterback to get there. he will win it all for us this year.
i went to two games at arrowhead this year. one game was real cold. we stayed as long as we could. I bought a mahomes jersey to wear to the games. I put it on yesterday to cheer my team on. the kids were trying to play keep the balloon in the air with me but I was watching the game. they teach me patience.
I ordered a beaded K C Chiefs medallion. it will be done this Friday. i will wear it and my jersey during the super bowl. it will go along with my beaded K U medallions.
i hope the chiefs aren’t like the royals. the royals won the world series a few years ago. then they lost many of their good players because they couldn’t afford to keep them. the great pitching staff we had left.
i used to hope the royals would win the world series, the chiefs would win the super bowl and the jayhawks would win the ncaa championship. all in the same year. that aint happened yet. but one can always dream.
Andrew and kinikwe helped me set the live traps this weekend. they also helped me check the traps yesterday and today. we didn’t catch a rabbit. I will keep setting the traps until I do. I am craving the taste of rabbit. after they hang a coupla days in the cold they cure out. that takes the gamey taste away and makes it taste good.
I finished stacking the wood in the basement. I fill up a wagon full and dropped the wood into the basement window. I have a board ramp that makes it land in a big pile. then I have to stack it. I split some into kindling. that makes it easier on mary when she checks the fire. it takes all of us to keep the fire going.
I have to take the boys back to their mother this evening. they didn’t have school today so they were with us all weekend. they have school tomorrow. I will miss the little guys until they come back.
what will this week bring?
