A camping we-a-go!!!
There are 3 sites that are reserved for a family of 16!!! I cannot wait!
Others in the family (hi sis) are not as excited as I am. Oh i know it will have its problems, but its time we go.
We've never been a family of campers. There are groups of us that go. Middle sis lives in the mtns and actually vacations in other mtns. Little sis goes at least once a year. Nephew goes camping in at the beach...and myself??? I've been camping probably 4 times in my life.
This oughta be interesting.
Mosquitos, bears, sleeping bags, fire roasted weenies....I mean come on...how can that all not be fun!
This is soooooooooooooo going in my blog when we get back!
Mark the calendars folks....In August we be campin' fools!

I just sat down. Left work at 4:00 today and 5 hrs later, I can actually sit down and relax.
I dropped hubby off at the airport. He's going to Vegas, that bastard. He got tickets for a closed circuit event at the MGM to watch the DelaHoya fight. Whooopeedooo. Not a fan. Can skip it. Not my thing.
He called right now. He's STILL in the airport. He was supposed to leave at 8:00. Not a good start.
Friend R is going too....she'll be on the same flight. It makes me feel a little bit better, cause hubby always looks lost in an airport.
Hopefully he wins big!

It's that time again. The girls softball is upon us. That means Coach Hubby and his two amigos get to take 12 girls out to the field to show them how to hit, catch and throw a ball. Fun times people. Fun times.

I go out there and make sure I know all the girls names and say hi to the Mom's. I butt in when I'm not supposed to most times but hey...my hubby's team lets me say whatever the fuck I want.

So here's the first practice. The usual "hey good practice girls" or a "things are going to be fun this year" and as always the obligatory "we have one heck of a team"
Let's put this in perspective. First of all: 4 of the 12 have NEVER played softball. Ok...breath. Can do. Can do.
And secondly and most important: We've had our first coach to parent meeting.
It seems that one of the Dad's thought that he had Hank Aaron incarnate or some shit like that and he came up to us after practice and the convo went like this:
Dad: Do you guys have the other coach's numbers?
me: "Oh yeah, I have all three of the girls coach's cells and home numbers. I'll pass them out at the next practice.
Dad: No, I mean the other league's coach's number.
(I of course get what he means, meanwhile, hubby just stands there)
me: "Why, what's up. What do you need?" (that's me cutting to the point)
Dad: (looking at me and then to hubby) Can I have a one on one with you? (looking at hubby)


The next 20 minutes was the dad with the golden softball player telling my hubby what horrible coaching there was last year and he wants to trade his girl to another team. The *(%^** nerve. Hellooooooo. This aint no world series. Our league doesn't even keep a running score for christsakes and you want to vent that we didn't teach stealing or sliding? Hell, 1/2 the team last year couldn't even run to 1st base! ( We had some large boned girls last year, mind you). Hubby was really good and explained to him the rules of coaching and that you couldn't yell at the girls to do what they wanted them to do and blah blah blah. Your welcome to try and trade...blah blah blah. The other coaches are the same blah blah blah.

Needless to say ol'"Ruth" is staying on the team and they'll see us at the next practice.

Oh boy!


It's been awhile since I"ve posted. I can't believe. And what do I decide to come out of retirement to write about? Freakin' Mah Jong.
I'm obsessed. I go to my regular siteS and then I sit for hours trying to solve the stupid little tile games.
I decided to defeat all of them at least once. I have 4 left. The one I'm on currently is Destruction. I've played (and lost) 134 times! I mean come on!!!! 134 times and I can't beat the fucker.
It's crazy.
It's insane.
It's Mah Jong.
If anyone out there has beat this one. Please Please Please tell me. If it's unbeatable. I'm stopping now.
