Watching the forlorn Red Sox (Red Flops) working hard to lose another game.

I guess I should be glad we don't get this one? We only get one or two Red Sox games a week here, but all the Blue Jays and Mariners ones.

Trying to decide what to have for dinner - I am really not hungry and can't swallow much. Think I might make a run to DQ for a shake.

yeah, wow, what's going on with the sawx, andy?
the yanks aren't much better this year so far. (but still better, he hee)

while at the baseball pictures tonight, which was a madhouse, i was appalled to hear a coach from another team (of 6 thru 8 year olds) trash talking our best pitcher, saying that he should be on their team instead of one that sucks. (my team happens to be mostly leftover and late entry kids because the primary coach was late the night of the sign-ups, and yes, they suck. but they have fun and don't know they suck, so i'm good with that).

i didn't say anything at the time, but this gordita bruja had better watch out come next week's coach's meeting.

you don't disparage my kids and get away with it.

Why don't parents get it. Kids baseball is about teaching, playing, having fun. Trashing other teams and riding kids at the games is totally inappropriate.

Shrek coached for one season when his boys were small, he couldn't stand it. The kids were great, but he was going to end up in prison taking out some parents.

I'm waiting for Stirling's plane to land. I think I will let him take a taxi home. It's such a hassle putting the car at the long term parking and taking a shuttle to airport building. I could spend twice as much for the valet parking up close, but then it isn't all that much cheaper than just taking the taxi and I don't have to wait around for luggage and all that stuff.
We didn't even figure this out before he got on the plane. I'll send him a text message. If he wants me to come get him anyway, it's a 15 minute drive to the airport.

Next time drive to a hotel near the airport and have a drink in the bar, your sweetie can hop an airport shuttle to the hotel and join you for a drink. I have found this a great compromise and much nicer than dealing with airport traffic and parking!

And maybe since it IS her birthday, they could have just stayed at the hotel for a night!

I am off to the pool for my water walking. My knee is still swollen but the doctor said if I stick to straight forward walking at a normal pace I should be fine. Hopefully next week I can get in three times!
