What a great day!

Saturday, June 20, 2009

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. emoticon 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!

  


Softball tomorrow!

Friday, June 19, 2009

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!!

  


Okay, so that was the wrong strategy....

Friday, June 19, 2009

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. emoticon

Already planning to be better tomorrow...starting right now!

  


Yippee!!

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

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. emoticon That might not be such a good thing...

Anywho....I'll let you know how it goes!

Happy Anniversary to me!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Today is my wedding anniversary!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH and I have been married for 19 years. It certainly doesn't feel like it's been 19 years. We are still going strong, are in love (yes, with each other!) and even still like each other!

Our big celebration? We told each other Happy Anniversary, went our separate ways for work, and had chili dogs for supper. Simmer down...I know that's pretty exciting stuff, but we're mature adults. We can handle it. LOL!!

I think for our 20th we'll have to be a little more creative...like dinner out without the kids!

    Barbara,
Sorry I missed your big shindig, I was out of town, even out of state.
I hope you guys had a wonderful anniversary. We've got one coming up soon too! Maybe I'll take your idea and celebrate with chili-dogs.
Got a place for me to stay "OTHER" than the dog house that I'm gonna be in? LOL
Take Care of each other
Tony

    Happy Anniversary!!! But please, at least tell me you're gonna' model the bikini for him tonight or something! (Or nothing if that's what you prefer...but it better be something if you're gonna' keep this alive for another 19 years on something other than chili dogS!!! FCOL!!!! LOL!!!) Seriously, I do wish you guys a Happy Anniversary! Being together for 19 years and still being in love (with each other as you put it) is really saying something. My Aunt and Uncle are the only two people I know who have stayed married and they have been together for 52 years and are still very much in love with each other and they let each other know on a daily basis. It's really quite special. So congrats!!! You are both special people!
Donna
