Today is an absolutely gorgeous day, and I’m just chillin. There are a few things that I should be doing, like updating my finances and mowing the lawn – but days like these are rare. These are the days when people take half days for “dentist appointments” and go play 9 before dinner. These are days when kids get “sick” after lunch and have mom come and get them. I remember doing that when I was in high school, just dreaming of when I could get out of the cage.
That’s what I’m doing today. I went to a local park earlier and just sat and people watched. There were all kind of folks out, some wearing some pretty interesting things like these punk boots. Others were parading their pets around with their no-choke dog harnesses and fancy collars. Me, I just took it all in, read me a little Bible and passed the day away. It’s a good day.
This weekend, I need to head to the ballpark and catch a game. Nothing like a dog and a beer and the green grass. The smell, the sounds, and the sights all come alive when you take in a ball game, or at least they do for me. Hope you get to have a good weekend, and I hope you get to chill.
I’m leaving Texas and heading back to the Nati. I spent the weekend there with my friends from college having a great time. We played a lot of golf, basketball, derby and tennis. We also went to the Rangers game on Saturday, which was awesome. Our goal was to get 5 balls in batting practice, and we came away with 9 on the night! One of those was from my favorite player, Josh Hamilton. He actually threw me a ball during the game. I flashed him my Reds jersey, and he threw it up after a catch and the third out of the inning. It was awesome!!!
The other big news of the weekend was that my friend Ryan and his wife are pregnant with twins. This is so great because they have been trying for months, and she was getting really discouraged. I’m so happy for them. It seems that we are all heading into that idea of having kids, which I’m all about. We stayed at Wes’ house and he has two cute boys already. I stayed in their room with the Thomas the Train Bedding, Wiggles Toys, and other fun boy toys.
My wife and I are hoping for a little bit more job security, but we’d like to start trying as soon as possible. I cannot wait to have a baby. It will completely change our lives, but I think it will be absolutely amazing. I pray now that I would be developing into the man I need to be to be a good father.
Puppies are really, really cute. I was asking a new friend the other day which she liked better, her dog or her cat. She was hesitant because she didn’t know how to respond. To me, that is an insult because my friends need to answer that dogs are better hands down. They are way more fun. Way more cute. And better friends. The only issue you get into with puppies is the training, but this comes with all pets. Of course there is the potty training, which a few newspapers can fix, but then there is the teething. It’s very helpful to make sure you have a few durable dog toys lying around. Otherwise, you may have a few shoes or furniture pieces torn up. So, shop around for dog toys for aggressive chewers. I love my dog. I take care of him and pamper him a bit. When I go out of town, I even let him stay at a nice place like this. If you don’t have a dog, you don’t know what you are missing!
