Yep, today was the day that I got to play softball. First game at 8:00...yes, that's AM! I had to borrow a blue shirt from my daughter. I don't have any blue shirts in my closet!! I couldn't believe it when I checked.
I played left field, right field and third. We played three games, won one, lost two. I hit the ball every time and all but one time got out at first. The other time, I was out at second. I was definitely impressed with how well these women could play!! They are flippin' AWESOME!!! I hope to some day be that good.
By the time we were done playing, it was 3:00. I had to hit the GF store before they closed and get gas (for my car, BIG DOG!), so I didn't get home until 4:00. Of course, I couldn't just sit down and relax. Nooooo! I had to unpack my bag of extra clothes, sunscreen, etc. Unpack the cooler. Fold the two...no, three loads of laundry that my kids had gotten dried while I was gone. (BTW, I only did mine and DH's clothes. The kids take care of their own!). Finally, at 5:30, I got to sit down for a little while.
After dinner (hots and brats!), daughter and I took a walk around the neighborhood and I chatted with the neighbors for about 30 minutes. Will definitely sleep GOOD tonight!

Tomorrow is the softball tourney that I signed up for! So glad that I only signed up on Wednesday. I'd be going nuts if I had signed up earlier and had to wait longer! LOL! I've packed an extra set of clothes (there's a no-blood rule, whatev!), verified that I have my mitt, bat and gloves and, as soon as I'm done Sparkin' folks, I need to make my lunch.
My first game is at 8:00 tomorrow morning and I need to be there 30 minutes early. We get to meet each other and prepare the "panty pitch" ball. Apparently, the idea of a panty pitch, for those who don't know (I didn't!) is to attach a pair of panties to a softball using whatever we want, except glue/paste. The ball is then pitched to a batter on the other team. If the player hits the panties off the ball, it is a home run. If the panties fall off during the throw from pitcher to catcher, it is a double and all runners advance two bases. With my luck, I'll be the one who has the panty ball pitched to me and I'll be laughing so hard I won't be able to swing!
Need to head to bed early so I can get up early! Later taters!!

Marathon of meetings today. Because of that, I went into work early, hoping to actually get something done. That part worked. But, since I went to work early, I got up early and I was really tired. So, drank some DP. Okay, drank a lot of DP. Had cookies at lunch too, hoping for the sugar high. Now, my stomach hurts and I totally went over my calories and fat goals. Oops! And the worst part? The caffiene and sugar did not help me stay alert in the meetings. Just made me feel sick.
Already planning to be better tomorrow...starting right now!

One of the ladies I work with is an avid softball player. Yesterday, she forwarded me an e-mail about a ladies-only tournament this weekend in Boise (20 minutes from where I live). I waffled all day and last night trying to decide if I wanted to commit an entire Saturday to playing softball. I talked to her today and let her talk me into it! I get to play softball on Saturday!!!
The registration fee is only $15 and all of the money goes to encouraging women of all backgrounds to play the game. I figure they might try to recruit me to play on a team this fall (at least, they will until they watch me play! LOL!), but that's okay. I might WANT to play! Anyway, this weekend will be a nice warm up for the summer league I've joined. The only thing is that now I have to get all of my weekend jobs done Friday night and on Sunday. That might not be such a good thing...
Anywho....I'll let you know how it goes!
