Quotation of the Day

Opening Day...Perfect Day.

So, almost my entire life I have been a baseball fan. Almost my entire life I have wanted boys who play baseball, who I can go watch and route for. Now, through the miracle that is older child adoption, my dream hath come true. It was my first opening day today, with not one boy involved but TWO. My husband is an old pro at this as his son B played when he was a kid. T still loves it as he has many fond memories of his son playing (and I might add is a fantastic ball player), so he has been looking foward to this too. It was a nice ceremony, everyone with shiny new uniforms on and since this is a small town, we knew lots of people there, so it was a nice social event too, even for me who is not the social type, really. The concession stand was nice, everything was cheap and I was able to nourish my children with vitamin enriched hot dogs and doughnuts for a mere six bucks!! (Dont worry, they are having a nutricious dinner tonight!) It was the best day weather wise that we have had this year. When we got home, the kids had friends over for a while and then they went to the freinds' houses, which meant I had peace and quiet...so I got to do some homework, which is cool because now, I can goof off later tonight. After I collected the kids (I like that term.."collected", its very British), S helped me with dinner, and she was a big help, she is growing up FAST. So, far its been a great day, and I think it is going to be a great spring and summer. So, without further ado (another thing I like to say), here are some opening day pictures for your viewing pleasure.....

HC: I think I'll go to the loo and then maybe watch the telly while I eat some dead good toad in the hole, and then (if I smoked) I will have myself a fag. Cheers, mate!
