We lost. Okay, so it was a blast. We did lose, but only by 2 runs. I played catcher (as usual) and had a blast heckling the other team. They laughed too, so I think they had fun too. One guy came up... Read more

So, with the new position being filled by "John" (see earlier blog), there is a hole in one of the two groups that works together. The powers-that-be have decided to take this opportunity to do a full re-org. I am sooooo hoping that I get a ne... Read more

As I've mentioned before, DH and I take the dogs for a walk every night. The boxer is a puppy and has TONS of energy. If she doesn't get her walk, she's just like a little kid on sugar. ... Read more
