Still kickin'

Soccer is in full swing including Cody who is now playing on a rec team in Claremore. He's doing pretty good when he's not recovering from injuries. Minor ones of course.

I took Hayden to his game on Saturday and that was the first time I had seen them play this season. I was surprised at how good they looked out there. Their coach however is hard to please and is unhappy about things most of the time. It makes things less enjoyable.

Caitlin's team is doing very well and has a couple of wins behind them so far. Her coach has done a great job of getting this team to this point and it has been quite a journey these past 5 years. Wonder if he'd be interested in a coaching a '95 boys team. :-)

I have felt so heavy and bloated the last couple of days that I go through my day wishing for a good poo. And to top it off, last night I had a dream that I was pregnant. I was happy about it and telling everyone that I knew. Then you know how you have those moments where you remember something about your "awake-real life" and all of a sudden dreamland meets real life? I remembered, while I was dreaming, that I had my tubes tied and then I'm trying to figure out how I could be pregnant. That's about the time that I woke up and thank goodness because being pregnant is not something that I would be happy about. But because I've felt like I'm in my second trimester with this bloatedness that I carry around, I guess had to dream about my ailment. Needless to say, I was at Walmart at 6:30am this morning buying the highest fiber cereal that I could find.

Running is like walking except for the part where I die.

I've been trying to run a mile in place of walking a mile lately. And yes, I'm pretty proud of myself because I've never run a day in my life except for the times when I snuck out of my parents' house and had to run to where I was going because it was miles away and there was no time to waste. The thing that stands out to me, about running back then, is that it took no effort whatsoever. I could have ran forever without having one thought that I was about to die like I do now. But don't ever ask me how fast I can run a mile because it's embarrassing and I don't expect it to ever get any faster. So there!!

All about Wednesday

What a good feeling to have all the laundry caught up. Especially in a household of 6 people. So now I sit here and wonder what I'm going to do with myself today. Probably catch up on some of my reality programming.

I took Caitlin to see her boyfriend, Caleb, at work last night. That was fun because it was this little steakhouse north of Claremore and we made comments the whole time about their fancy napkins (paper towels sitting on the table) and how every time Caleb sat down to talk to us, the owner would yell at him to do something. Caitlin ordered chicken strips and I had french fries. I wasn't hungry and it was the smallest item on the menu. When they brought them out, Caleb had them make me a special plate (they aren't on the menu) of Cheese Fries which are fries topped with shredded cheese and bacon. Delicious.

We had lots of rain yesterday which was the makings for a beautiful day. But when the sun came out later that afternoon, it was not comfortable. Especially if you were trying to watch the RSU soccer game and sitting on concrete bleachers. It felt hotter than it actually was thanks to the humidity and not enough wind. I eventually moved under a tree where it was pleasant except for the game being such a bore. Caitlin's team plays better than what we've seen at Rogers State. But at least it's something to do, close to home, on a night when there is nothing else going on.

The Alpha Cat

My cats have really been fighting the last couple of days. Actually, Abby has been kicking Mojo's ass all over the place.

I often fantasize about a cat named Junior paying Abby a little visit.

Kathy and Kuwait

I love Kathy Griffin's joke about Kuwait. She said that when she stepped off the plane after landing in Kuwait that the entire country smelled like a fart.

"Who farted?"

"Oh... Kuwait did."
