Or at least this girl is!
What a game last night! It is really just such a great time to be a sports fan in New England. There was no way I couldn’t watch the game, even when we were down by 24 or whatever it was in the first quarter. See, to me – the thing about basketball is that it’s really anyone’s game until the last quarter – even sometimes the last 5 minutes or so. It’s just one of those games that is so fluid. Everyone really pulled it out last night, but I’m sorry, how great was Ray Allen? I’m pretty tired today because of course, I didn’t go to sleep until 12:30 or so. It was well worth it though.
I worked a bit of OT this week, so as of 11 a.m. – I’m done for the day! I’m looking forward to going home and picking up the kiddies and going out for the day. My son had his last day of first grade yesterday, and we spent the evening in town; the school does a really nice “family fun night” on the town common – and it was a great time for them. Free slush, balloons, popcorn, face painting – and of course a huge place to run around and play with all their friends from school. So today, I’m taking them out to do a little shopping for summer clothes, some gifts for the weekend - and then to my son’s 7 year well visit with his pediatrician.
What does the weekend hold for this girl? Well, let’s see…. Tomorrow, I do believe the kids and I will venture to The Butterfly Place for the first time this year, and then maybe a Kimball’s run shortly thereafter. Tomorrow evening, I have a surprise birthday party for my girlfriend Kim whom I haven’t seen in ages!! So can’t wait for that. And then Sunday, is up in the air at the moment…. But I’m sure we’ll be doing something fun. I know my son has a baseball game in the morning, so…we’ll more than likely end up going visiting afterwards. Actually, it was two of my nephew’s birthdays this past Wednesday and this coming Saturday – so I’m hoping there’s a birthday party in the plans for Sunday. You know, kill three birds with one stone…Father’s Day, birthdays. It’s all good.
(Can I just tell you, this building I work in is disgusting. Oh sure, we have AC now and it’s freezing cold. But it also smells like dirty feet. Truly. Ugh….)
And that my friends, is my story – and I’m sticking to it.
Go Red Sox. Go Celtics.
It definitely is great to be in Boston right now.
