I’m going to call this kid “Slugger”. Slugger is a boy who is excited to be at the field every time. He’s not necessarily interested in playing baseball but there is an infield full of dirt. We’ll get to that later.
The ‘Rona gave another trial this tried-and-true family had yet to endure: Vacation. Wife usually picks where we go. I’m happy to go anywhere so I provide the tie-breaking vote if we can’t narrow it down to one place. We did have a place picked out and booked… Then Coronapalooza hit and we were forcedContinue reading “Getting Away”
Our T-ball season draws to a close. I am proud of the improvements my team made over this brief and unique season. If anything, I hope these troopers will take at least one thing they learned this year and apply it to their game as they grow as people and baseball players. There were plentyContinue reading “Heading for the Homestretch”
“Walkin’ the dog. I’m just a-walkin’ the dog.” – Rufus Thomas My children are enterprising. They are constantly seeking new ways to be productive. Whether it’s a way to make money or a way to give back to the community, they are able to come up with ways to improve the world or save upContinue reading “Doggie May Care”
Like you, Corona screwed a lot of things up with my family. Loyal readers of my heartfelt stories know the challenges faced when it came to homeschooling the Miracles of Christ. You may also recall the fun times when I coached not one, but two baseball teams last spring. Due to Coronapalooza, our season gotContinue reading “T-Ball Basics”
Drake wants Heineken and Jack Daniels. Taylor Swift wants Starbucks Grandes delivered to her before 11 a.m. Mariah Carey wanted bendy straws to go with her champagne. Every diva has their food demands when it comes to what it will take to get them to perform. They don’t even need to be an entertainer preparingContinue reading “Standard Fare”
Like you, I do what I can to stay healthy. I ride a bike. I take walks. I went to a gym before Coronapalooza. I have been trying to lose or maintain my weight for a while. Some weeks are better than others. I recently took a walk one night and someone was smiling downContinue reading “Sharing My Finds”
We’re having some issues with Kitty. I don’t know if she’s entering adolescence (she’s 15 months old) or if we have a bona fide psycho kitty on our hands. There is still a matter of who, exactly, Kitty belongs to. Technically, The Boy got her for his birthday. Being home, I spent a lot ofContinue reading “Wildcat on the Loose”
I carried the equipment back to the van hoping my last half-ounce of sanity would hold out for the ride home so I could hide somewhere until the next crisis presented itself. Unfortunately, the next crisis presented itself before the bag was dropped in the van.
I started a new job recently. It’s not great. Not glamourous. It is physical but that’s okay. Most of the work I’ve done is physical/manual labor and those types of jobs love me and like to keep me so I guess this is nice and convenient. We have since moved on from home-schooling to vacationContinue reading “Small (Very Tiny) Talk”
