And because I really don't see the family much -- all of us all together -- during the week, there's always immense guilt about doing something other than giving them every second of my time on the weekends.
This morning I made an effort. I got my hate-to-get-out-of-bed-on-a-weekend ass up early this morning and trekked clear out to the northland. And I mean -- way the heck out there. I kept thinking I musta missed my exit ... but no....it's just THAT far. And when I got there .... I went to a scrap store where scrap friends met up to shop. That in itself is fun .. I had some extra "winnings" left to spend ... and fun people to just be in the same store with.
But then I had to leave. The boys had overlapping baseball games and I needed to get back. Kyle has really noticed lately that he doesn't see me much....so I couldn't stand not to see his game. He always runs up to hit -- and looks out into the crowd for his "fans." And Jack's been getting so confident - - I don't want to miss how much he is improving . Nick's FIRST T-ball game was today...and he was very excited.
But dang. It sucked to leave. They were all gonna walk to a place for lunch ... and just sit and chat .... adults....women. Chatting and laughing, and we always have such a hard time getting everyone together...and I was gonna miss out.
I did the right thing. Kyle got the game ball for hitting two bombs way out in the field -- and got three in the park homeruns. (Technically because he was the last batter each time.) And Jack hit a TRIPLE! And was so happy he threw his hands up on third base and was smiling so big ..... and looking right at me to make sure I saw. Yeah, I was in the right place.
