Went to see Simon play soccer and he hit the edge of heat stroke today. Rough day for him and the team. The other team was better but they were only winning 1-0 when Simon was taken out because he was getting dizzy.
...I started the day with a nice road ride early in the day. This time of year is just fabulous to wake up and be outside. Just splendid.
Then I ruined that splendid morning by driving to a Jets game. The first 34 miles were fine, then the last 2 miles took almost 1:45 in total. I cannot begin to express how poorly they have engineered the car situation here. I am absolutely sure a dozen 3-eyed mentally retarded rabbits could do a better job with traffic control. It gets worse every year. And after today's mess on the field I am not sure my step-father wants to do this anymore. For the first time in all the years we have been going to sports events, he wanted to leave early. This has never happened, ever. With about 12 minutes left in the 4th, he gave up. I think his spirit is broken.
We got home at 4:35 which then gave me a chance to finish mowing the lawn & weed whacking everything. So this weekend I got 2 things done on my list of 11 things.
We all had dinner & dessert together, then my parents drove back to PA and I took Julia to Target for some clothes shopping. Not too long ago, going to Target at 8pm would have been totally out of the question as my day was over by then. Now, I pretty much just take whatever chance I get to cross off the easy things when I can.
Sunday night and I am now trying to mentally prepare for the week ahead. But I am having a hard time caring much at this specific moment so I'll figure out tomorrow when that day gets here. I think I'll have another n/a beer now and read a book.
Yes - I think I'm more of a Keurig Dave lately, but I will assure that one day we will be sipping on the finest Box o Joe Dunkin Donuts has to offer at some future group/TM event .....I have spoken......Today
We also saw Cafe Dave who really has never earned that name, as he has never given me a coffee nor have I seen him even drinking one. The gorge on red defies words, quite frankly. You need to see it to believe it. The blue gorge will be full of rocks before another week is out and we'll see how that plays out over time.
Man he's funny...we have seen him 3 times, but a long time ago, like when he first hit in the early 2000's (circa "The big yellow one is the sun" routine). We still listen to that concert and he truly makes Steph laugh-cry lol How is his current material?Today
…we did a lunch road ride in which D’s right shifter paddle broke clean off.
…I took Bear to the dog park in the afternoon where he made a new best friend that he probably forgot about as soon as he got in the car.
…we went to see Zac’s team win a hard-fought game against North Hunterdon to move to 4-0 on the season.
…we went to Morristown to have sushi at Laku Sushi which was quite tasty.
…we ran into Steve & Joy while walking to the MPAC.
…we went to see Brian Regan at the MPAC which was D’s Mother’s Day gift.
Now we are home.
