Wet Weekend

Blah. Hate the cold and rain in August. But hey, it’ll beat the heck out of 93 and humid tomorrow. And speaking of beating…why is it that the Tribe waits until it doesn’t matter anymore to start winning games?

Had another sleepover with Jakey last night. We played and wore each other out. Keeps me young. And don’t you know, I looked all over town for a simple oversized bat, ball and free-standing tee this morning (the Indians need a lot of help so I thought I’d start batting practice early), and nobody had one. Off to Mansfield.

As many of you know, I had a test at the hospital (all results normal, yay), and they shot me full of iodine to light up my innards. Well of course, as has been the case in the dozens of surgeries I’ve had over the years, they couldn’t find a vein in one arm after digging around a while, so they abandoned that effort and tried the other arm. Lovely. I am grossed out daily. Jake pointed at my arms this morning and said, “Uh-oh.” Indeed.

So what’s everyone up to this weekend? Playing around? Traveling? Knitting one’s dog or cat hair into a scarf? Share.

Jakey is DEFINITELY his father’s son.. it’s SCARY how much he looks like #1 son when he was that age (at least as I remember). Gig last night went well. Manager of the place said: “Just how much do you want to work? I know you have a day job, but you can work as many or as few nights as you want. I’d rather have you than B***t play any day of the week.” Music of another kind to my ears Just replaced the track light dimmer in the recording studio & now about to go hang the last… Read more »

I graduated today. That’s the sum total of my weekend plans at this point. We must venture to Panera sometime soon, friend.

If it matters, I am the parents’ place this weekend. Not only that, but I got a call from your purse or butt this morning quite early!!! The voicemail (I’m not answering that early) was quite humorous. 5 minutes of incomprehensable chatter.

Today was our last day here (thank the Lord Almighty). We are all ready to return home. After sightseeing for this long everything starts looking the same. We will leave here super early in the morning and get home super late (OH time) tomorrow night. It is a 9 hour flight. I know you are jealous – you adore flying!

Please don’t wish the horrors of playing on the Cleveland Indians upon poor innocent Jake :(

I didn’t mention your 40 thing since you seem to be a little traumatized by it and all….:)
