Hello, Junebugs! First full week of June is in the books, and it was another goody.
First of all, how 'bout that American Pharoah, eh? Did you watch the race? Good thing they're so fast, I don't think I remembered to breathe from start to finish. I don't bet on the horses, but I do enjoy watching a good race. A Triple Crown win was exciting to see.
In similar speedy news, but not really, this week included a few breaks between storms. I was able to spend my bicycle commutes with speedy Alice. No offense to Bella, who is great in less-than-ideal weather. But Alice is the true speedster of the crew and keeps me crowned in my queendom status, so it was certainly fun to get back into that saddle. Forget Caitlyn Jenner. Alice, you GO girl!
I had my first Sky Sox (minor league baseball) concession duty this week with the band boosters. As expected, it was busy and fun. The night was clear and pleasant and was one of several Military Appreciation nights at the field, so the game was well-attended. Good times. I'm actually looking forward to my remaining games. It surprises me how much people spend on baseball junk food.
Baseball provides such a friendly atmosphere and fans are, for the most part, good people to be around. That's what makes this weekend's Fenway Park accident all the more scary and tragic. I'm watching that story and surely hoping for a full recovery. The band actually had a fly ball come into the concession stand and land in the fryer at a recent game. It was christened "Fry Ball", and luckily no one was hit and it just made for a fun story.
And while we parents were doling out beer and deep fried everything, Meego was attending mini band camp - 2 days and one night of sheer band geekness.
Geocaching has been in a bit of a lull thanks to lightning storms and general adult responsible behaviors, but we managed to log one this week. Meego had an orthodontist appointment, and I noticed that there was a cache nearby. He was lobbying for Lulu's (frozen yogurt) afterwards, so we decided, if we found the cache within 5 minutes, we'd go for some FroYo. Thusly motivated, we found the thing.
Chaco and Wolfgang will be moving into an off-campus apartment. We found one, but rentals are at a premium so they've had to wait for the move in date - which is this coming week. Chaco will start moving while Wolfgang will stay home for the remainder of the summer since his job is nearby. I won't miss having the hodgepodge of boxes around and am hoping the decluttering will help to reveal Reese the snake.
Yeah, he's STILL at large. I wouldn't be surprised if he's in one of the many boxes. Could make for an interesting unpacking experience!
