....I have barely had anytime at home the last couple of days.... For some reason Christopher decided he wanted to try out for baseball. Part of it I think is because he is use to the athletic rush he had during basketball, part is the fact that he has gone from having 3 older brothers at home and now its just him, and part because C is working on a project so he tends not to be able to hang out with Christopher as much.... and to a 15yo guy, I guess mom and her crochet/ sewing just isn't exciting...
The thing about baseball is the fact he hasn't held a bat since he was 8...his measuring stick for whether he would play was if he made good contact with the ball during the first practice on Monday.... I drove the hour and 15 minutes to the field and sat, watching my basketball player in regular tennis shoes, basketball shorts, with no glove or ball hat, thinking I wouldn't have to make this journey again over the next couple of months....Christopher went up to bat and I continued talking to the other moms when I heard it..... that awful sound that sent chills down my spine......
The kid had sent the ball sailing into center field with only a half swing...... He turned and gave me a big grin....I pulled out my day planner and began crossing out dates~ sigh~
Yesterday we left the house at 7:00 had biology lab until 10:45, met my MIL for lunch at 11:30, left lunch at 1:00 and drove to the house, transfered laundry and changed cat litter, hopped back in the car and drove the hour and 15 minuted back to the ball field by 3:30... practice was until 6:30.... rolled in about 7:45... Exhausted!!!
..Then for some reason my sweetie and I spent until bed time discussing old album covers???????
Today I have only a crochet lesson here in town at 1:00... the rest of the day I'll play catch-up...maybe outside since the weather will be beautiful!!!
... If you remember, please send up a prayer for Shawnee whose surgery for amputation is scheduled for 9:20 this a.m.
Play your dreams......say a few prayers... and have a fine day... all day long
