Hi everyone! I wanted to share my good mood. Liam got to pitch for the first time tonight, and wow, was he great! The coach called it a "phenomenal" performance and dads from the other team were coming up to me saying how good he was, and they sure were glad he reached his pitch count because now the team had a chance. Liam's team won for the first time this season, so Liam and the team were just completely joyful. Liam went to bed the happiest I have seen him in a LONG time. He even gave me a huge hug and didn't want to let go (at home, of course...not in front of his teammates ) I am so excited for him. Not only was he proud of his pitching, he was also proud that he hit the ball every time he was up tonight. I just love baseball season.

I promise I will catch up with everyone tomorrow, but here are a few scattered things I can remember in my adrenaline-fueled brain:

Bethany -- I hope you are feeling better. Mold+Stress+Dust and Paintchips = I know time is going to fly for us until the end of June, so if you want, I can send a little of our crazy life your way.

Janice -- I'm sorry the date didn't happen yet, but it sounds like that is a good thing. First dates are hard enough without additional complications.

Sheryl -- I hope Angelina is having fun in NYC. The way I read your post, I thought the job was still a possibility if they came back with a better offer. Did they decide against that?

Ellen -- I'm sorry to hear Jay is leaving so soon. My thoughts are with you and your family. I know it is not an easy time.

Robin -- You will LOVE your new mattress. My back and neck have felt so much better ever since we got a new one. Your parents are wonderful.

Ann -- Glad to hear Luke is feeling well enough to visit your folks.

Marisa (and Erica) -- Congratulations on the weight loss!

Gretchen -- I can't remember what day you were leaving, but have a great trip!

I know I haven't mentioned everyone, but I do have some time to catch up more tomorrow, so for now, have a great night! Oh...dinner was a few bites of a pretty ooky Italian sub at Liam's game. I was too nervous to eat anyway.

I hope this is actually a food thread LOL. We are having homemade mexican food tomorrow in honor of Cinco De Mayo. No recipes other then my mom puts chili o in the hamburger meat along with the taco seasoning. I can't wait til tomorrw. I may even break my diet rule and have a margaritta at home. I stopped drinking at home unless I have company to help lose weight. iI only get drinks when I go out to eat and more then made up for it yesterday with 3 peach martinis. I can't drink like I used to which is a fine thing. I came home and passed out on the couch for a couple of hours and woke up with a mild hangover. Oh well that is the price you pay to have some fun.

Why get all excited about something as silly as a fake celebrity? Or getting a tag?

Oooooooooooh, a hot date! I somehow missed this tidbit I'm glad things will happen when you feel more confident and put together.

Oooh, that sounds good. I love peach drinks!



Tonight the staff went to PF Changs for dinner. Did you all know that you can order "the limo ride" there and the waiter brings a variety of various dishes out for everyone to pass? That is what we always do when we go and have been able to try just about everything on the menu that way. We had 2 appetizers plus 8 dishes to share between us. My favorite is still the wok seared lamb (which we always request!). The veggie coconut curry with tofu was also fabulous.

I have to leave for a conference at 7am tomorrow so I came home to sleep. I am still not feeling well and really need sleep - which I don't do well away from home.

This whole post has me ! They are so funny, aren't they?Kady is like that as well....she'll make beds without having to be asked, feed the cats adn pick up random clutter but then if I ask her to pick up her things on the floor she has a mini meltdown

She didn't accept the offer, the pay was much lower than she expected. She had another meeting & discussed with the gen. manager & was hoping to hear back from them before she left, but didn't. I'm worried about it.
Love that! Kady used to say "fridgerfer". I loved it. Sometimes she still slips and it makes me Don't grow upppppppppppp!

I wonder if the firm will come back with a counteroffer for Angelina. Fingers crossed for her!

Now we get more anticipation time Seriously, better to wait and not have extra "stuff" to worry about.

My sister and her then husband fixed me up with Buddy. I had met him but had refused to go out with him for over 3 months. When he picked me up he sort of just froze in the doorway. It seems that my BIL had told him I had one child.....and when he arrived there were three running around along with my very unconventional set of teenage male babysitters glaring at him

Food? Us? Yes there is food here, it is the common denominator we all have but meals are only the backdrop for some good chat. Please jump in and share your meals if you want and anything else you want to talk about. If you would share your peach martini recipe I would appreciate it, most of the cocktails I enjoyed in Disney had a peach base and they were so good!

I hope that today finds you feeling better


I am starving! Teach me to read this before I even think about cereal and bananas

Dinner will be pork chops of some kind. Once again it is rainy and raw so grilling is a maybe. Last night I was able to grill a sirloin and served it with baked sweets, Baby Bellas sauted in olive oil, butter and worchestershire and steamed green beans. Green salad for Buddy. Mine will be for lunch.

Oh! I wanted to thank Angelina for going to NYC! Buddy and I are going in June and I have been looking for shows that he might enjoy. Stomp is now on our list. We are also going to visit the Intrepid museum. I need one more show and am looking at Mamma Mia or Rock of Ages. Any other idea? He doesn't want to see Jersey Boys and I did not see that Smokey Joe's Cafe is still playing. He would not care for a show like Chicago or 42nd Street. he does not even remember seeing Jesus Chris Superstar and that was less than a year ago so you can see what I need to look for.

I have to find dinner ideas as well. We went to DelFrisco's the last time and it was so good. It was a little pricey though, but by then he was so shellshocked he did not even want to know the total. Ellen's Stardust Diner was fun too.

I love PF Changs and have never heard of this. Is it very expensive? Does it have to be a large group to order this?

I would love to see Mamma Mia, heck I'd go see anything, I've never been to NYC.
