Playing Hookey

Well, I finally had enough. I couldn't bear to look at my house one more second. It was filthy! Not only that, there was absolutely nothing to eat because I never seemed to have a chance to hit old Wally world. This weekend will be spent at the baseball park, so I won't have the time to get it done then. And the fact that Thursdays are my worst day, schedule wise, made the decision that much easier. I happily spent the day in W*lmart and cleaning the house. It's hard to believe that two chores I absolutely despised just a few short months ago could make me so happy today. Perspective changes, I guess. Only 10 more weeks of school (but who's counting?!?!)

We have our first baseball tournament this weekend, so I'm excited for that. I think the weather is supposed to be great. I can't wait to get a little sun on my pasty white winter skin.

Yesterday, I was bringing Braden and Cade to baseball practice. The conversation turned to "cups". Those of you with only girls won't relate to this, but I can tell you "cups" are a huge part of life here at our house. Richard was evidently trying to make the point to Cade's team that they have to wear a cup to every practice so he started telling them all the things that would happen if they didn't. Cade is relaying the conversation like this:
Cade: Dad said if you don't wear a cup and you get hit, you'll turn into Oprah.
me: thinking "Why in the world would Richard have said that"
Cade: and you'll go "Ahhhhhhhhh" (singing)
me: do you mean an opera singer
Cade: oh, yeah, an opera singer, that's it.

Glad to know he won't be turning into Oprah anytime soon!

Oh my word that's too too funny!! My boys are finally used to the cups but it wasn't easy getting them to wear them at first. Our first tournament is this weekend too! Hope you have fun! At least you will know that when you get back home everything is done!

Hey stranger!! That is too funny!! I can picture Richard trying to explain that. I hope you have a fun weekend. Glad you had a "rest" day and got stuff accomplished.

Thanks for the laugh.
I think you should forward it to Oprah just for kicks.
