Okay, so the "oh my" is superfluous, but it was fun to type it (and sing it in my head! LOL) Those are my plans for the morning. I am going to get up early enough (but not TOO early) to go yard saling. I'm looking for a batting glove, maybe a new mitt (mine has lost most of it's padding), a cash box, books (always), bust specifically books 2, 3, 4 and 7 of the C.S. Lewis' series The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. When I have all seven, I'm going to reread them.
After yard saling, I'm going to swing by the local farmer's market. I really want fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. The BEST sandwich in the world is a tomato, cucumber and mayo sandwich...if the ingredients are fresh!
Then, I'll stop by the jeweler to get a new watch for my battery. The library should be open by then too and I'll do my weekly trip there. The newest Nora Roberts book is in and I get to read it first!!! Black Hills. I don't even know what it's about, but, it's Nora Roberts so it has to be good! LOL!

My softball team's first game was tonight. We were there, warming up, watching the game before us and wondering where the team we were supposed to play was. Well, at 8:00, the other team rolled in. Excellent!! We get to play!!
First inning, their pitcher walked a bunch of us, we hit well and we ended the top of the inning up by 8. The next two innings were better for both teams (fewer walks, more hits, actual plays). Then came the last inning...we forgot how to get our mitts down. Balls took some weird hops. Close catches (okay, they were misses, but we almost caught them!). And they started hitting. We ended up losing by 3 or 4 runs.
The good news is I had fun and so did the rest of my team. I played catcher and told a couple of the guys on the other team that there is no shame in striking out. LOL!!! Luckily, they laughed too! One guy hit a pop fly behind home. I tried to catch it and my hat fell off and I missed it. Coming back to the plate, I told the guy "That did it! You made me get my hat dirty! Now I'm mad!!" He laughed and so did the ump. All in fun!!!
Next Thursday is our next game. Hopefully we can remember how to play and win this one!

The new puppy did pretty good today. She did #2 outside (not inside!) and didn't have any accidents! We're trying to get her used to her bed and she doesn't like it. Daughter is going to sleep next to her tonight to try to keep her quiet and happy. Daughter is whining more than the dog at this point.
We'll see how they are both doing in the morning. LOL!

My daughter was down to three pairs of shorts. Granted, she rarely leaves the house, but we decided she needed new clothes. I took her to ShopKo (1/2 off!) and we started looking through the racks of clothes. There were some really cute things and some not so cute.
Luckily, she didn't even want to try on the short shorts (wouldn't have let her get them anyway!!) and I was able to talk her out of some of the things she looked at. One of the tanks was cute, but an odd color. Plus, it was a little clingy. She actually listened when I told her how much better the black one looked! You could have knocked me over with a spoon! (Okay, I think that's the wrong saying, but you know what I mean.)
We ended up getting two pairs of shorts and the black tank. Her dad (my DH) won't like the tank, but it is cute and appropriate and he'll learn to deal.
