Little League game recap

Friday, June 01, 2012      6 comments

Well, last night’s ballgame was perhaps the most exciting one yet – and Josh has been playing for years. “We” were the visiting team. The home team scored 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning. We finally scored a run in the top of the sec... Read more

Sunday, May 27, 2012      4 comments

School

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      2 comments

DH and I recently told the 6th grade teachers that we feel we aren't really helping them - that it doesn't fit their schedule well for us to come in at a set time on a set day, so we won't be going to help out in that classroom the rest of this ... Read more

Trendy Yarn

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

Ok, I learned what tready yarn is.....in the skein, it looks like it's about 1/2 inch wide, but you pull the width open to find numerous 'holes' into which you knit (and maybe crochet??) I learned how to use that yarn and knit a 'ruffle-y' ... Read more

Hi Y'all. Happy Cinco de Mayo. We got another good rain (thunderstorm) last eve/night and the baseball field needed some attention before the boys could play today. Didn't hurt Josh's 12 yr old team - they beat the opposition 6 - 2. Yea!... Read more

The Dreaded Shot

Monday, April 23, 2012      6 comments

Thank you all for your patience with me over the past 4-1/2 months, about my knee. I got my gel shot this morning. I hate needles, and it was into my knee, so I was dreading it. Besides that, it's a gel, not a liquid, so I was fearful. I... Read more

Today is opening day (and team picture day) for little league. The ball complex was every bit as crazy busy/crowded as I figured it would be. DH and I didn't go for the opening ceremonies, but we got there before Josh's team started playing. ... Read more

Saturday, April 07, 2012      3 comments

Ok, so the ugly sweater is finished. I don't like wearing yellow - it's fine on others, but I don't like it on me. That begs the question of WHY DID I BUY SOME yellow yarn?!! I don't have an answer for that. I'm on to crocheting Amigu... Read more

Sat, 31 Mar (already!)

Saturday, March 31, 2012      6 comments

30-something years ago, after the birth of my youngest, the stitches rotten far too soon and I started hemmoraging. I'd lost so much blood that I was given 2 units 'push' - and let me tell you, when the blood hasn't had proper time to heat up ... Read more
