So, we lost two out of three games, but we were still scheduled to play again. We got there and were told that we might not play until 7:15 (two hours later!). Luckily, the team that forfeited to us didn't show again so we took there spot in t... Read more
Day 2 of the tournament
We were scheduled to play today at 5:00 and we're playing one of the other teams from our home town. We got about 40 minutes into the game when we started seeing lightning strikes. Up until then, the girls had been playing very well. They wer... Read more
Results of tournament, day 1
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 thei... Read more
Ohhhhh...that's what I was thinking!
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 ... Read more
What was I thinking?!?!?
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 i... Read more
A laid back day
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!

Yard sale, softball, HPC, laundry...
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 week... Read more
I didn't fall, I jumped...
off the wagon, that is. I had a coupon for buy one get one free - McDonald's Breakfast Sandwich. That is too great a bargain to pass up, so I bought two Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuits (for the price of one! ... Read more
Much better today
Apparently, I shrugged off the funk that was hanging over me yesterday. Today was SOOOOO much better. Again, nothing really happened, good or bad. Goes to show that attitude is everything.
Oh, just remembered, one pretty good thing hap... Read more
It was just a cruddy day. And, the sad thing, it was all my own darn fault! Nothing really bad happened. I even finished a couple of projects at work. I just woke up in a funk and couldn't seem to shake it. The only good thing is that my cr... Read more
Who else hates air conditioning?
Every day, I wear a jacket or a sweater or some other long-sleeved article of clothing into work. In the summer, especially when it is truly hot outside, I get grief about wearing a sweater. My answer is always the same. If I were outside, wh... Read more
Glorious day off!
What a great day off this was. Slept in. Went out for breakfast. Came home and read my book. Sandwich and salad for lunch. Read my book some more. Headed to the gym. Made dinner and went out for ice cream. Now, it's time to read my boo... Read more
I have decided to restart the Hundred Pushup Challenge. Last time, I did 18 pushups in my initial test and got through week 3 before an injury side-lined me. I took the initial test again last week (23!) and did week 1, day 1 today. Apparent... Read more
I didn't do it...
I did not finish my to-do list, not even close.
Planned to get up early, head to the gym and then come home for the yard sale. Didn't happen. Got to bed waaaaaaayyyyy too late to get up that early.
Planned to run the yard sale, p... Read more
Busy day and more to come
Typical Friday at work, so that's not the busy part. The busy part came after I got home. We had pizza for dinner (Papa Murphy's take and bake). After we all ate and dinner was put away, the whole family (including the dog) headed to the gara... Read more
