Baseball hangover.

I've got another "baseball hangover", I'm having a hard time staying awake for these games... I made it to the top of the 9th before I fell asleep on the couch last night. I was hoping for better news about the Rays when I woke up this morning. There's always tonight, boys. Get 'er done, will ya?

Megan will be home for dinner tonight! I'm still not sure what I'm making, but I've got to make sure that it's something she likes. Trouble is, I can't keep track of which kid likes what. With very few exceptions, all of them will at least eat a little of everything, but for special occasions, like say, coming home from college, I want to make sure to make something she REALLY likes, especially since the rest of the weekend may be kind of hectic & this may be my one shot at feeding her a home-cooked meal.

I used to hear people talk on TV of "home-cooked meals" with such love & nostalgia & I just never used to get it. Not that my mom wasn't a good cook, because she was, but I always enjoyed eating out more than eating in. Within the last year or so, I have become such a fan of the "home-cooked meal", even when I'm the one cooking it. Planning meals, however, is another story... I HATE that! I need to get to the store soon, too, so I need to think of something p.d.q.
Tomorrow is "Vocabulary Parade" day at the elementary school, in lieu of Halloween. They haven't done it every year, but when Ben was in 1st or 2nd grade, he went as a BOOKWORM. Here he was the day before, he was home sick when I was creating my "work of art".
Tune in tomorrow for a picture of our new Vocabulary Word. I think he's gonna be pretty cute!
In the meantime... GO RAYS!!!
