Well heck. I thought for sure I'd be writing this from Detroit, Michigan instead of my couch in Kentucky. I was even booked in the casino! Which I dreamed I'd won the big million dollar prize....
Why would I be hoping to be in Detroit and not sunny Florida? The Horizon League Basketball Tournament rooting on Northern Kentucky University since we were ranked number one and were the season champs.
The pictures above is the last home game. My parents and my sister and brother-in-law went to every game to root on the Norse, specifically, Jack!
All of us were so excited to go to Detroit because last year we won the entire tournament and played UK in the NCAA tournament. Boy...was I torn last year because of my love of UK, but both are my alma mater. Still....I rooted for NKU last year, and we lost to UK. We didn't care! We got to the big dance!
Guess what....NKU lost to the number 8 and we are still so shocked and stunned. We won't get a bid to the NCAA, but we do have a spot at the NIT. So maybe I'll be headed there.
Regardless, the team is heartbroken and I'm heartbroken for Jack. The games took up a lot of time and we sure did have a lot of fun.
Thank you to all who have emailed me about Scooter. He was diagnosed with Cushings Disease and Diabetes. It's really taken us for a spin and not in a great direction. We can't seem to get his blood sugar to normal range and he's had a few diabetic episodes. A couple have landed us right back in the vet's office and some we've gotten under control at home. Charlie still hasn't gotten use to Scooter being sick! He's been sniffing poor Scoot-Scoot all over this house.
I will get it back on track! It's just gonna take a few more pricks in his ear, a lot more blood tests, and some more insulin or peanut butter.....
Hugs and happy coffee sippin'!
xoxo ~ T.
