Jammie Day. Catch up on housework and laundry day. Reload the weekly pill container day. Rainy Day. Procrastiblogging day! Wish I had a laptop so I could curl up in my recliner and blog away instead of sitting at this hard, cold, uncomfortable desk in the kitchen.
Basketball season comes to a close and Baseball tryouts are next Saturday. My favorite sport of the season. Not to brag, but my boys have been blessed with exceptional athletic abilities which makes watching them even more fun for mom. Big One will be trying out for Majors and it will be Little One's first baseball season (T-Ball last year). I am starting to stress about how I will get them to practices and games and am hoping they will have their practices on the same days and their games on different days and that my boss and co workers will be kind enough to let me off early enough to see their games or else I will go crazy!
I got flowers for Valentine's Day! I haven't gotten flowers for Valentine's Day since my high school sweetheart worked at a florist. My flowers came from my Little One's Big Brother, of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program. The card said, "To the best mom in the world". That really made my day. It was a Saturday and I was working (as usual) when the delivery came. I had a customer so I couldn't read the card right away, even though my customer urged me to. Just so y'all don't get the wrong idea, he's much older than me and happily married. But it was kind of fun wondering who sent them in those few minutes of anticipation.
Both of my boys have been perfectly matched with Big Brothers. They are pretty amazing people. My oldest and his Big just had their one year match "anniversary" in January. Over the past year they have gone to movies, swimming, trail bike riding, scuba diving, and built a tree fort together in the backyard. Later this month he is going to take Ryan flying. He is a commercial pilot and former flight instructor. They also have started building a sailboat.
Little one's Big is a retired businessman, married, with two grown boys of his own. Together, they play all kinds of sports, go exploring downtown, and have started a lower level addition to the tree fort. They like to ride with the top down in his Porsche. Yesterday he took both my boys to their basketball games in the Porsche with the top down. As I followed them in 'Ole Betsy, I laughed out loud at how my boys are riding in Porches and flying airplanes! Who would have thought ?!
Well as much as I wish they would, those chores aren't going to do themselves....
