and yet another delayed post…
Woke up to squalls and blizzards and wind. We almost lost the basset.
I was supposed to work on taxes today, but the blubbering over Marley and Me wore me out. That, and my inkjet was out of cyan ink and it refused to let me print even in black only. Talk about a scam. Went shopping and came home. I was supposed to be working on taxes upstairs, but instead I was hiding, watching Facebook, playing Angry Birds and worrying how my son’s team would do in baseball.
My son’s baseball team lost the first game of their double header. My son would be starting pitching the second game. Around 5, he sent us a text. “I gave up two home runs.” Oh..wow. We didn’t know what to say. Damn. He suffered a loss. But it was a bad day, it was windy. My husband said, “Don’t make excuses.” So we just sad there with sinking hearts. Poor kid. His first start and he gave up two home runs. The text buzzer rang again. This time his message said, “That’s okay, though, cos I got a 5-3 win.” The little bastard. I’ve done it to him time and time again, and he finally turned the tables. I almost burst out laughing and crying at the same time. Our son had started…and finished…and won his first full college baseball game. Apparently, it was the first on the road win for PSU Harrisburg in TWO YEARS.
When my coworker, Ravi, first started at IST, for some reason he felt compelled to invite me to lunch with a bunch of his friends. We went to India Pavilion and it was my first time there. The food was incredible and I ate so much, I couldn’t move for the rest of the day. For some reason tonight, I wanted Indian food, so I made Chicken Tikka Masala. It was simmering hot, just burning the palate, but soooo incredibly good. Hubby liked it, even when I thought he would not. It upset his stomach the day after though, and my dad told me it looked like vomit. So, I don’t know that I will make it again, but tonight it was divine.
I don’t know what it is about the weekends, but I just feel so out of touch and so alone. I lose my motivation and I lose my voice. (Hence the delayed posts…)
We watched Bull Durham in honor of my son’s victory. Crazy short day…it passed way too fast. I still need to get my taxes done.
