Nanaw had another one of her rapid heartbeat episodes in the middle of the night, which the ablation was supposed to stop. So she's going to call the doctor's office with a lot of questions on Monday. Mama, Daddy and Chase went out to Grandma Pat's house in Wentzville on Sunday afternoon for Wesley's birthday. Daddy took his living room recliner out there for Grandma Pat. Mama said Chase didn't eat very much -- just a bite of sub sandwiches, some chips and a bite of cake. Wesley got two of the same Hot Wheels cars so Aunt Nona gave one of the cars to Chase. So Wesley shouts, "Stop giving away my cars!" Chase thought that was really funny and kept repeating the story. On the way home from Grandma Pat's, Mama and Daddy dropped Chase off at Nanaw's house so he could visit with Nanaw. They played with his slime and his Roblox people and watched the end of the WALL-E movie and part of Monsters University. Chase had popcorn and three cups of Tang orange drink. When Nanaw took Chase home, they went into the garage to see the new love seat. They sat down on it to test it out and it's very comfortable. Mama showed Nanaw how she cleaned off her desk and cleaned off her bookcase. Daddy moved the bookcase into the blue room, and Mama said they were going to move her desk in there as soon as Daddy shampooed the carpet where it was going.

Nanaw slept till 7:45 a.m. at Chase's house on Saturday morning but everyone else got up a lot earlier. Chase had muffins for breakfast, and Nanaw had her cottage cheese and cranberries. After breakfast, when everybody was dressed, Mama said she would drop Chase and Nanaw off at Nanaw's house while she went grocery shopping at Schnuck's. So Chase and Nanaw played on the kitchen counter with his slime and his Roblox people. Nanaw made popcorn for Chase and gave him Tang orange drink, one of his favorites. They watched WALL-E on Chase's DVD player. Later in the day, Mama sent Nanaw a picture of the love seat Daddy bought for him and Chase at Weekends Only. It has two recliners, one for each of them. Mama said Daddy is going to pick it up tomorrow.

Mama and Daddy had the day off Friday but they let Nanaw take Chase to school because she was going to the hospital Friday afternoon for her ablation procedure. When Nanaw and Chase got to his classroom, Mrs. Hermann had the fireplace showing on the SmartBoard -- it was very cute. Nanaw took lots of pictures of Chase in the classroom. Mama took Nanaw to the hospital at a little after 11 a.m. and then picked her up at 6:30 p.m. The nurses suggested that Nanaw not be alone on Friday night so she asked Mama if she could have a sleepover at Chase's house. Mama said of course. Chase took a bath on Friday night and Nanaw got to watch him. They played lots of things. Then when Chase went to bed, Nanaw slept with him in his bed for awhile. Nanaw slept in the spare room, and Sam slept on the floor by the bed all night. Tyler came to the door but didn't come in. Then later he did come in and investigated all of Nanaw's things. Then he jumped up on one of the shelves in the closet and laid down on Daddy's slacks.

When Mama brought Chase over to Nanaw's house on Thursday morning, Nanaw asked her if it was all right if she took Chase to Walmart after school to get him a Roblox guy, and Mama said yes. In the morning while Nanaw was reading the newspaper, she saw that Miss Linda died on January 9. This is so sad. The Transportation Museum won't be the same without her wonderful presence. Chase and Nanaw loved Miss Linda and enjoyed spending time with her. When Nanaw picked Chase up from school, he had forgotten his water bottle so Nanaw will have to bring it home tomorrow morning when she takes Chase to school. Chase and Nanaw went to his house for awhile after school, and Chase played with his toys and Nanaw took a picture of Sam and Tyler. Then they went to Walmart to buy toys. Chase changed his mind about Roblox and got three mini winebags instead: Lego, Flip-a-Zoo and a bug car. Mama was going to Top Shooters on Thursday night for Moms Night Out. Hopefully, the weather won't be icy and dangerous.

Mama said Chase got sick to his stomach last night and threw up in the kitchen and in the bathroom -- poor little fellow. It was Nanaw's day to volunteer in Chase's classroom and she had a wonderful time painting with the boys and girls. She took a paint shirt so that she didn’t get all full of paint. When she arrived at the kindergarten area, all the children's shoes were lined up outside their lockers. Andrew told her it was because their shoes were all muddy from playing outside at recess, and the teachers didn't want them tracking mud into the classroom. Chase was happy to see Nanaw come to work in the classroom; he came up and gave her a hug and so did Amelie and Alyssa. Nanaw got paint on her black pants but not on her paint shirt. The boys and girls painted snowmen, and Nanaw thinks they had a good time. After school, Chase and Nanaw went to the library where Chase played with the eyeball Legos. Nanaw bought fruit strips for him out of the vending machine. When Nanaw took Chase home, she got to see Sam's new haircut -- Mama had him shaved today. He looks like a different puppy.

After Mama dropped Chase off at Nanaw's house Tuesday morning, he went over to the kitchen counter to play with his new slime. He wore his new blue shoes to school today, and Andrew noticed them and asked Chase if he had new shoes. It was very cute. Nanaw loves those boys. Mrs. Hermann asked Nanaw if she was up for painting with the boys and girls on Wednesday, and Nanaw said yes and that she would bring her paint shirt. On the way home from school, Chase fell asleep so he must have had a busy day. Later he told Nanaw he had chef salad for lunch and showed her the picture he worked on and brought home. He said there were zombies, ninjas and Star Wars people. Nanaw thinks he was making that up; Mama said everything looked like penguins. Chase played with his slime for awhile at the kitchen counter, then had popcorn and watched Monsters University. Nanaw repaired Mama's new stuffed elephant that Uncle Mike and Aunt Becky gave her for her birthday. Chase has been sharing him (his name is Harry Elafonte) with Mama; Harry takes turns sleeping with them.

Monday was Mama's 49th birthday, and she took the day off work and took Chase to school. At noon, Mama and Nanaw went on a shopping adventure, going first to Arby's for lunch. Then they went to Bath and Body at the mall and then to Walmart. Nanaw bought 4 cans of slime (sludge) there for Chase. They picked Chase up from school, then Mama took Sam for a walk while Nanaw stayed with Chase. In the evening, Mama, Daddy, Uncle Mike, Aunt Becky, Chase and Nanaw went out to dinner for Mama's birthday at Joe Boccardi's in Columbia. Daddy had a fish dish, Nanaw had a steak and everybody else had pizza. Nanaw had baked Mama's favorite cake for her: cherry chip. Mama got lots of Jack Skellington presents from Nanaw. Chase picked out an atomic clock for the kitchen for Mama. His remote control car that climbs up walls took out the other kitchen clock.
