Well, I’m disappointed

Lunch was definitely a “looks better than it was” experience today. I hadsuch high hopes, too. I got the deli special, tomato and mozzarella onfocaccia with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Oh, and one of them thar basilleaves. It’s too early in the season (given our weather lately) to do a tomatosandwich. And while the […]

Great Game

You couldn’t have asked for a better night – a warm breeze, Nomah going 5 for 5 (with 3 runs…dude!), a 10 to 1 win, and kick-butt seats courtesy of my boss (who is the greatest boss ever, just in case she’s reading this). These were her personal seats, and there were 4 of us […]

Well, that’s typical

I’m in the middle of my “dealing with it being the end of the weekend” blues. Except they aren’t really blues cause I don’t mind going to work tomorrow. I think I’m more annoyed that it’s absolutely POURING outside today, which, combined with yesterday’s drizzle, means this was a very gray weekend. And it’s going […]

Saturday’s over already?

Wow, that was REALLY fast. I’m exhausted…it’s a two hour drive down to where the birthday party was (on this side of the bridge on the Cape), and it was kind of rainy and yucky all day, although not enough to keep the kids inside which mean at some point the adults have to spent […]
