This weekend's rainy weather messed up our family plans. Yesterday we headed to the Nashville Sounds play the NM Isotopes(???). This NM team is a minor league step down from the LA Dodgers which are the family team. My grandsons even wore their specially made jerseys and carried balls/pins to collect autographs. I took a change of clothes since I did not trust the looks of the sky when we left. We also took umbrellas. We sat on the first row behind first base. Both hubby and son told me not to read a book and to pay attention since I could get beaned from that seat. And they call this fun? I'd rather be doing the fun than watching others have fun. Well, the game was rained out for awhile and then started again.
Soon the skies opened up to a downpour. My short DIL's umbrella dripped down my back and side soaking my shorts and shirt on my left side. My hubby and I tried to stay dry under one umbrella. It did not work! I did not get grumpy or whiny and complained only minimally.
Soon, the game was on again. We put away the umbrellas and watch the game. It looked like the rain was done for the night. So, I went to the truck retrieved my clothes and changed to my dry set. I sat down to watch and was sent for the dogs and drinks. I came back and sat down. This game was not meant to be since the rains came quickly again. I said, "I'm done with this, I'm going to the truck. I'll take the boys with me." I began filing up the stairs with one boy wrapped around my hips and the other holding my hand as I trudged up the steps behind the crowd. I carried my bag, purse, my umbrella over our heads and one 37 pound boy. I did not get out of breath or tired. I was able to make it the whole way. Amazing was getting fit will help you do!
P.S. I attended a wedding today rather than try the baseball game again. It was rained out again tonight. We'll try again tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.
