Hi. I’m back. I know, it’s been a while. I know the little mini-posts and memes I’ve done in the last few weeks are rather pathetic. But, please, don’t get all uptight on me. Listen, it’s me, not you. It’s been a rough month or so . . . Don’t look at me like that! . . . it really has been hard. I’ve had migraines, been out of town for 2, count ‘em 2, funerals, gotten my daughter off to camp . . .
But, I’m back now. I make no guarantees that I won’t have another little “vacation” in the future, but I’m back to my normal (whatever that is) blogging routine.
So, some updates. Rosie Girl is at camp this week. I was supposed to make cookies to send to her, but I got too many migraines (see above), so Mr. Math Tutor bought some of her favorite candies and sent those instead. That being said, her birthday is Saturday, and I’ve gotten the greatest idea for a cake. It involves a chocolate pound cake, lots of strawberries, and white and milk chocolate drizzled all over the place. YUM!
Wild Man is having a great time with baseball. For one thing, we have been watching the College World Series and cheering on LSU – Geaux Tigers!! Wild Man is on a traveling team that plays in other towns in the area. They won their first game which they played yesterday. Wild Man plays first base in that league and does a great job. He had a practice last night for his night-time league, but he came home and said that he prefers the discipline of the daytime traveling league practice because they goofed off too much at the night-time practice. Wow. That’s a cool thing to hear my kid say. The traveling team is in a competitive league where they don’t guarantee playing time for the kids while the night-time league is more for skill development and they try to let the kids play through most all the positions but they’re less concerned with winning. My very competitive son likes to win!
I keep saying that I’ll post pictures of the garden, but my camera is with Rosie Girl at camp right now. I did buy a camera yesterday (technically it’s a birthday present from the family to me!) but they didn’t have it in stock, so they ordered it and I’ll get it on Monday probably. Anyway, the garden looks lovely. Almost everything is growing. I have a few open squares that I will probably plant with broccoli this week.
I was going to go grocery shopping today, but Mr. Math Tutor is working so I think Wild Man and I will take a trip to the library and then to get ice cream. We’ll have to drive, though, because we have about 20 books to return!! Can’t do that on bikes! Then I have to do laundry because Wild Man needs his baseball uniform clean for tomorrow. And Wild Man has a double header tonight. I really hope it doesn’t rain.
So, there it is, blog. I haven’t forgotten you. I have been neglectful and for that I apologize. No, I don’t think relationship counseling is in order! I’ll just try to be a better blogger from here on out. OK? Hey, I don’t think comparing me to those professional bloggers is exactly fair, either. Let’s just start over with a clean slate, huh? OK? Hey blog? Did you hear me? Oh, come on . . . don’t be like that . . . .
