I cherish the outdoors

Don't you love it when you go outside and you are walking around in the grass and when you turn and look behind you, you see that you just stepped passed a snake? Yeah, I love that.

School bell time

I'm heading to OKC today (actually, Edmond) to take Caitlin to her game. This will be the toughest game in their league so hopefully things go well. They won yesterday's game 2-1 and that was the second hardest team in the league. So as you can see, today's game will be tough.

The kids have a good week behind them of school and everything is going great. Hayden adjusted quickly to Jr High without much anxiety. Cody will be starting the gifted program soon. I don't know if you can call it a gifted program, it's more like a program that's a gift. They have fun activities that the kids get to participate in and they focus on things that are a little more challenging. Caitlin's year started off sluggish socially but has just been boosted by a recent event that I'm sure I'll cover later. Dylan is in college and seems to be going well. He doesn't complain about classes, just gets done what needs to be done.

So things are great and as you can see, not much more to talk about. But wait until the pool guys show up to put in the pool. Surely I'll have pics and lots of info.

Is it worth mentioning?

I can't believe that I don't have anything to blog about. I mean, I'm actually doing "things". It's just so hum-drum that it doesn't seem important enough to mention. I'm sure no one wants to hear my laundry woes of turning the boys' dirty socks right side out before tossing them into the wash. What about the times that I've grabbed a scouring pad to scrub off the baked on goo from a cookie sheet. And wiping down counter tops and scrubbing toilets is just the cherry on top. Oh yeah. The excitement is too much, isn't it?

My pleasures consist of going to soccer games and watching our teams kick butt, relaxing at home while watching one of my favorite reality tv shows or even doing a little shopping. None of which are worth mentioning. So how's that for excitement?

PGA memories

This past week was completely dedicated to the PGA Championship. I was either there working or I was at home sleeping. It was fun and I'm sure a few of us will have moments of "remember whens" or "remember thats" like seeing Tiger play a hole, our manager Gilbert who took such good care of us, the long hot walk back to the shuttle after standing on your feet for 6 hours, and golf balls flying into the concession. And whether we want to or not, a lot of us won't be able to get it out of our head how much water cost whether you bought 1,2 or 3 at a time.

Working my butt off at the PGA

I've been volunteering at the PGA Championship this week as part of a fund raiser to earn money to help pay for Caitlin's soccer travels this year. I'm up at 4 am every morning to get there by 6 o'clock to start the day. By the end of my shift, my feet hurt so bad they can barely carry me to the shuttle which I ride to get to my car. I'm completely exhausted every evening. But, it's really been fun working with the other parents and I enjoy the interaction with the customers. One nice thing is that golf fans are usually dressed nice and don't have piercings all over their bodies. This is a clean cut community.

I did leave my work station today to get some pictures and try to see some of the pros like Tiger and Sergio. I wasn't lucky enough to see Sergio but I did get to take some pics of Tiger and a couple of other favorites.

Tiger Woods, Angel Cabrera, David Toms and Ernie Ells
