Baseball & a Talent Show

It's been one of those gloomy weeks. The rain comes out to play off and on all day, the darker clouds dance around the sky, and I just want to hide. This crappy weather plays mind tricks with me, and makes me want to stay in bed all day and do nothing.

I did get out of bed each day, after sleeping through the alarm most days. I hesitantly rolled out of bed by 8 each morning and walked down the hall to work. I know, I know ... life is rough right? Working from home does have its benefits. And did I mention I get to choose my own hours? I could sleep in until noon if I wanted, but that would make for a very long work day.

This week was busy indeed. Baseball started off for two of my nephews. The rain stayed away for one game anyway, and it was nice to get some fresh air and to start the tradition of hanging out at the little league fields. Gage and Jake both had an awesome start to the new season!

This is the last year they will play together in little league. Brotherly Love.

Last night I went to the Middle School talent show. I wasn't sure quite what to expect, but it was great. And very entertaining. The gym was packed with friends and families alike, and each act got up there and performed without any hesitation. These kids have such courage, and I was impressed. Gage, my oldest nephew did his karate act to a Bon Jovi tune. I was a proud Auntie last night, he has this karate thing down. All his hard work and dedication really showed last night. Good Job Gage!

I later learned that each act had to audition and get chosen to participate in the talent show. Way to go Gage!

So happy that tomorrow is Friday, and Friday the 13th too! And for some useless information, Did you know we have 3 Friday the 13th's this year? And they happen to be exactly 13 weeks apart from one another. Who says I don't educate, who says?
Have great weekend!

    Looks like the baseball was fun and the talent show too. Too bad the weather hasn't been good.

  9. I think it's great that Gage performed in the talent show! It takes so much courage to get up there and perform in front of people, especially at that age. What a little trooper! :)

  12. I tried to work from home last Friday and it was awful. I got nothing work-related done, although I made myself a gourmet lunch, did a ton of laundry, cleaned the bathroom, and got caught up on my morning talk shows!! I admire your ability to focus!
