Working on getting opening ceremonies organized. We'll have the Boy Scouts present the flag (color guard) for the National Anthem. We're having a ceremonial 1st pitch. Raffles, introductions, concessions and a Hit-A-Thon. I think I'm looking forward to it more than my daughter is!
Time to go get "home" work done now. Pack my lunch, prepare for tomorrow, etc. Another long week is looming.

In-laws took us to Red Robin last night. I had decided to have the turkey burger and dinner salad. I ordered GF fries for MIL and my son and regular fries for my daughter. DH and FIL had the tower of onion rings. I even split three of the onion rings between my kids (she gets the breading and he gets the onion). I ended up having three fries and what I had planned to order!!! Yay for me!!! The nice thing is, I didn't feel like I ate too much. And even better, it all tasted really good! I can do that again.
Of course, Easter brunch was another story. We went to a buffet and I accepted the challenge!! LOL! Okay, they are not supposed to be challenges, but I always treat them that way. Went back a couple of times and made very unhealthy choices. Didn't have lunch (cos it was brunch!!) and had a fairly healthy supper. I did go to the gym and worked a little bit of it off. Then, because it was such a gorgeous day, I used the weed whacker to cut down grass around the fence line and then clean out some of the weeds in my flower beds.
Back on track now. Tomorrow will be easy schmeesy, right?

Long busy day. I decided to get up at 5:30 this morning, get in a nice long workout (to make up for missing a couple earlier this week) before I started my day. I got up and really did not feel the gym thing. So I decided to go back to bed and exercise in the afternoon. When I got back to the bed, my DH had sprawled over the whole thing! I didn't have the heart to wake him, so I went to the gym after all. I did tell him thank you!
Next up was laundry. Got that started and then took daughter to softball practice and worked concessions from 9:30 - 1:00. Came home for lunch and then took off for grocery shopping (after doing more laundry). Three stores later, finally made it home. Put everything away, cooked some brocolli and am FINALLY relaxing until DH calls me. MIL and FIL are set up at our local flea market. Today is the last day, so they are packing everything. As soon as they're packed, we're all meeting at Red Robin for dinner. I'm having the turkey burger and a dinner salad.
Great news tho! There is an adult softball league in my hometown. It is only $25 to play and I am going to play!!!! Yippee!! I have wanted to go play on my daughter's team. I'm small enough I would blend...until they noticed the wrinkles! Games don't start until July, but I'm sure practices will be sooner. I can hardly wait!!!

What an incredibly long week I've had! Not one productive day all week and I now have over 165 unread e-mails. Hope there is nothing important there! To top it off, I had to play the political bull balarkey game with my boss today and could have ruined a work relationship I've worked hard on building (didn't, but could have!). And, ran around in circles trying to find information for someone who already had his answer!
I am SO glad it's Friday and I can deal with home garbage for a couple of days instead of work garbage. Nice bonus, I didn't turn to food this week much. A little, yes, but not like in the past. Wish me luck for the weekend!
