Results of tournament, day 1

Thursday, June 04, 2009

Our first game started right at 5:00. Unfortunately, the other team only had seven girls. Need eight to play. We pitched to them. The deal was we would play until either an eighth girl showed or three outs. We got the three outs before their girl showed, so they had to forfeit. Really hated to get the win that way. But, it was a win!

Second game, not so lucky. They had a full team...plus. We did not play well. Lost. Score? Them - alot! Us - one. emoticon That's all right. We play again tomorrow at 5:00. If we win, we play again on Friday. If we lose, we're done. Go Longhorns!!

    Wow, just the update that I've been waiting for.

Sorry about game two but as long as everybody had fun and did their best, that's the main thing. Good luck on Thursday & Friday, either way, we're behind you! Talk about positive thinking!!!

Ohhhhh...that's what I was thinking!

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

Tonight, we had a four hour practice scheduled. Yes, four hours with 10 teenage (or almost teenage) girls. There was a huge improvement in attitude, energy level, teamwork, you name it! We worked on everything we could think of and the girls responded well. We play our first tournament game tomorrow at 5:00. If (dare I say when?) we win, we play again at 7:15. I'm rooting for a double header!!

So, all of this softball is wreaking (is that the right word?) havoc on my eating patterns. I am very used to eating breakfast, a snack, lunch, a snack, dinner. Today it was breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, snack and (much later) dinner. I stayed in my range for most every nutrient I'm tracking, even calories! Tomorrow will be interesting. I'll be packing sandwiches for me and my daughter, carrots, an apple, a banana and maybe some chips (for her). I'm too cheap to buy concession stand food and we won't have time to go anywhere else. See...I'm talking like we are definitely have a double header. How's that for positive thinking! emoticon

All right. Things to do. Places to be. Dreams to dream. I'll let you all know how we did! emoticon

GO LONGHORNS!!!

    What an attitude!!! You go girl!!! So that's what you were thinking?! So does that mean you won't be coming to Homedale? Or you could always come to Homedale to celebrate!! I'd even throw some burgers on the grill! Come on now how can you resist that offer! LOL!!!! I'll be rooting for you guys tomorrow! I think it'd be great if you guys come out to be the champs!!! Good Luck!!! I'll be waiting to hear how it turns out.

What was I thinking?!?!?

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

OMG!!! Can you say AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH? Tonight was my first practice with my daughter's softball team. What a bunch of GIRLS! LOL!! They were jibber-jabbering the entire time. Sometimes, the jibber-jabber was mean-spirited, sometimes it was dorky, but NEVER was it softball related. Tomorrow is going to be SOOOOO different!

We are going to run drills. We are going to have "real" game-like situations and see how they do. And every negative comment will result in physical activity. Either pushups or situps or running or mountain climbers or burpees!!! Yeah! They are going to be positive if it kills them!! (Or me!) emoticon

    I give up....what were you thinking? Personally, I don't think you were! But you didn't ask me did you? Or yeah I guess you did! Well, look at it this way...it's going to be an experience you'll never forget!!! And not only will it be a physical challenge if you join in the practice, but it will definitely be a mental challenge!! And when it's all over, you can always get away by making that trip to Homedale!!! Ya Hoo!!! But you could come to meet me and not just so you could say you've been to Homedale! I'd love that!

A laid back day

Sunday, May 31, 2009

Slept in until 9:00. Made breakfast since today is DH's birthday. Took a nap. Went to a meeting for the softball tournament. Made dinner. Went to the gym. Will finish a book. Can't ask for much more than that!

Barbara,

You're living the good life, or would that be the life of Riley?

Who is Riley anyway?

Keep up the good work

Yard sale, softball, HPC, laundry...

Saturday, May 30, 2009

A typical Saturday for me! Our subdivision had a community sale and, since my daughter's first game of the day was cancelled, we decided to set up for it. We did not have as much traffic as we did last weekend. Turns out it is graduation weekend and not as many folks are out and about. Oh well.

About 11:30, we packed up so I could get to her game. Shoved in a sandwich and carrots on the way. THEN! it was time for the library and grocery store (DH's birthday is tomorrow) and then back home for HPC and workout. After all of the pushups, both for the HPC and JM's NMTZ's, my arms almost did not cooperate with me to make dinner!

And through it all, laundry. I do so love laundry (detect the sarcasm!).

All right, kids are clamoring for the PC. I guess my time is up. Nite y'all!

    Oh I love yard sales! I would have totally come to yours.....had I lived any closer to you, lol. I feel your pain about the laundry. I used to leave the clean load in the basket so that my husband would just get frustrated and fold it and put it away. But now that I'm out for summer I'm folding it now...I'm a giver. Actually no the kids are givers b/c if not for them I wouldn't be doing laundry so often!
(sigh)
