I woke up at my usually insane time yesterday, around 4am… I was productive, did a few loads of laundry. I had to wash my umpiring stuff for a couple of games, Monday night and Wednesday night.
I dropped the dogs off at around 10am for their stay in boarding. They are there until Sunday evening. I wouldn’t have been able to get them until Thursday morning and then I’d have dropped them off Friday evening for more umpiring this coming weekend, so leaving them the extra two days made sense.
I’m actually looking forward to getting back to a regular routine and not heading to Calgary every weekend. Only a few more weeks of baseball, the end of the month should likely be it for umpiring this season for me. I guess it’ll depend if Hera needs surgery in late August or not.
So, I headed to Calgary around 1230, it was an uneventful trip. No issues on checking into the hotel. I caught a short nap and had dinner. Last night was a Tier 2 Babe Ruth game, it was a good game, ended 7-6 for the visitors. Well played all in all.
The pool was closed at the hotel by the time I got back, do it was off to bed.
Today will be some running around and dinner tonight. It’s the 10th Annual MLB All-star game dinner with a friend and former coworker. It’ll be a good time, I’m sure. Nothing fancy, Boston Pizza, but it’s always good and inexpensive. We end up watching very little of the game, sometimes we don’t even know who wins…
More umpiring tomorrow and a late trip back home for a few days before two double headers on the weekend. The week will fly by.
