The weekend is here after a holiday shortened week. The week flew by, as most weeks do – something about getting older, perhaps? It wasn’t overly busy, but I have enough to keep me out of trouble at work at any rate.
Blondie, Hera, Twix and I just got in from the dog park, we were playing ChuckIt and now they are tired. I hear, and believe, that a tired dog is a happy dog. All three are zonked out on the floor, likely because it is cooler. It isn’t hot out by any means, but when you run, full out after a ball for 45 minutes or so, I guess it will tire you out. I get in a fair amount of walking myself so that isn’t bad either.
I am heading out shortly to do an inventory of baseball uniforms that we have in our equipment shed. I have an assistant helping me, so we shouldn’t be any longer than an hour at most, I don’t think. That will give me a good handle on what we have and will make ordering a lot easier next year.
This afternoon I am umpiring a double-header with a former baseball Dad of mine, should be fun. An A game (I am on the plate) then a AA game with me on the bases. I umpired on Thursday night at Foothills Stadium and had to eject a coach. My partner called a balk on the pitcher (after neither of us called about 3 or 4 in a row) and the coach lost it. Well, teach your player to pause before pitching and we won’t call balks on him. Anyway, he whined and whined and I had heard enough, so I asked him to leave. Yeah, that’s what I did. Arrogant little coach anyway, oh well.
Tomorrow, I think the four of us are meeting with Lita and her Mom to go for a hike in Edworthy Park, it is supposed to be a beautiful day. I think spring has finally arrived.
That will cause the weekend to go by even quicker than the week – always seems to happen. Have you ever heard of someone saying that the weekend is dragging on? Enjoy yours.
