Starting tonight I have more things to do in the next three days than most people usually do in a week.
The Kid's baseball team has made it to the playoffs - I am giddy with happiness. They worked so hard. The down side to this is that I have spent more time in the past 6 months at the ball field than I have in my apartment. I also now know more about baseball than I ever thought possible. I have become one of 'Those Parents'. I don't exactly yell at the umpire but I mumble scathingly under my breathe every time there's a questionable call. Or what I would consider a questionable call.
During the last game the Kid was called out because his foot was out of the box. What?! You can't even see the damn box after the second inning, as it's made out of chalk! Even the Boyfriend thought that was excessive. And since he has 35 years of baseball experience and I have 8 months, I felt justified in my outrage. But I digress.
Project Puppy begins Friday night. (Again almost shaking with glee - at times I can resemble a chihuahua that has to pee.) After work we will drive through almost 2 states to pick him up and bring him home. I, of course, will be giddy the whole trip.
Saturday brings another round of baseball (weather permitting). I almost hope it rains because the Boyfriend and I are supposed to drive (2 hours) to his father's new summer place to help open it up and check on any maintenance that needs to be done. This would be our first road trip with the pooch. The poor thing will probably think we live in the truck because all we do is drive. If it does not rain I will be going to baseball, the Boyfriend will be helping his dad and we will argue over who gets to keep the pooch for the day.
Saturday night the BF and I plan on installing the new internet cable that we've signed up for. Seriously. How hard can it be? Yeah I say that now but I refuse to pay $50 to have the cable man show up at my apartment for 20 minutes. I can read and follow directions. The girl from the cable company assured me that if I could download a song from iTunes I could handle this. Well, the BF is an Electrician and I have a degree in Engineering AND I can use iTunes. In case of emergency I also have a kid under the age of 15 to help us. Kids today could run a nuclear missile silo with the computer knowledge they possess. I feel confident we can get this done. Mostly.
Sunday is Father's Day and like the good daughter that I am I will be driving to my parents house to have dinner and pay homage for all of the crap I put my dad through in my younger years (that would include my 20's by the way). The Kid will be spending the day with his dad and the BF will be spending the day with his AND he gets the pooch. My parents have a cat. The poor thing would probably have a stroke if there was a dog in the house.
I think the shoe choice for the next few days will be sneakers, as I sprint from one thing to the next.
