Love (Latest Posts)
I like sports – I like sports A Lot. I just happen to prefer things like football and hockey over say baseball. Yes, I also really like NASCAR but I figured I’d get a lot of flack from people if I included that with the football reference.
Now the entire length of our marriage Alex has pushed and prodded me towards at the very least accepting baseball in my life because he loves the game. I have gone to games where he has played and been a “cheerleader” in the stands. I have even taken the time to learn how to read the score on t.v., but the one thing I haven’t done is GO to a professional game.
To be fair I’ve never been to a professional game of any sport, but really if I could I’d totally go see the Falcons play any day. Sorry Braves.
However, this past weekend my lovely friend Leslie and her wonderfully kind man, Josh, invited Alex and I to see a MLB game in person. Alex and I jumped at the chance 1. Because we love these two people and it’s always great dating another couple and 2. Hello, beer and sports. Duh!
Now, I will say through no one moment this entire game was a bit of a cluster-F. Parking rules changed on us, traffic was horrendous thanks to DOT construction projects, and it happened to be a game where it got sold-out. Which is rare. So that meant no tickets sitting near one another.
So you know what we did? We prevailed and hung out together in the stadium bar and watched the game from up there. We mostly chatted and occasionally saw live game items, but I still call the night a success. Why? Because I got to visit with friends and date my hubby. I wish I had more photos of the game but sadly I do not. I do have these photos for your viewing pleasure. Ignore the blurriness and reference above #2 point about why a live game.

So I’ve been a total silent bob lately. I’m not sure why, mostly because I feel like the title of this blog and what I actually talk about 99% of the time do not relate. Additionally, I’ve been spending my time reading and watching t.v. with Alex in the evenings rather than typing.
Oh and the photography thing, it’s gone down a deep dark hole. Accutane does that to you.
(Yes I’m blaming the meds…they cause major mood changes, ask my doctor and my husband. They’ll both agree.)
Anyway, happy summer! I’ve started my new job (OK I started over a month ago, please reference above silent bob note) and I adore it. I don’t want to say too much because Dooce provides the best example of why one does not blog about your job and I like this one so I want to keep it. Point is I’m really happy. I haven’t been really happy at work in a long time and this feels great.
Outside of that the last month has been hectic. You see, first this happened to Alex’s jeep.
Then he got this Jeep.
Then on the Friday before Memorial Day this happened to my jeep. The poor other driver, I feel worse for him than I do for my jeep.
Now I get to play in this for 10+ days while my Jeep gets fixed, but here’s the kicker…this is my SECOND rental car because the first one had mechanical issues.
Anybody eager to ride in a car with me yet? No? I don’t blame you – I’m still not eager to be in a car with me!
Let’s see, what else has been happening. Oh! I have been waiting for spring to get warm, only it never did and now its summer and suddenly warm. Anyway, I was waiting because I wanted to surprise Alex with a water balloon fight when he got home from work one day. This past weekend I was finally able to do so. Lucky him walked into the garage to see a bag full of water balloons, a note stating that I was “armed and prepared to fire grenades at the first sign of enemy movement” and shortly after reading the note a barrage of water balloons launched his way. Sadly…I lost the fight.
Clearly I was never meant to play ball in any form or fashion.
And that is the story of where in the Hay I’ve been. I’ve been avoiding cars like the plague because my Karma is clearly quite bad right now.
