WAY Past Due ...

** This is a picture I took at the lake a few weeks ago - we were out on our houseboat and docked on an island - isn't it beautiful? **

Wow. Where does one begin after such a long absence?

Well, I left Wisconsin and moved back to Minnesota at the end of May due to changes in my job ... I took most of the summer off and spent time readjusting to small town life and enjoying my now 9 year old son and bonding with all of his new friends. I got a dog (will show pics later) and have been busy teaching him to be a good boy for Mama.

I start my new job in just 13 days!! I'm excited to be moving forward with my life. I have 10 weeks of training to go through, but I look forward to the challenge.

So, I said I got a puppy. It's a shih tzu, he's just over 3 months now. His name is Beckett. I know, I know ... but I just love Josh Beckett and thought - How fitting is that???? LOL!!!

This is a picture from the day I brought him home...

Uh, I guess I don't have any recent pictures online just yet, so once I do I will show you how big he is now!! In this picture he was 1 pound 6 ounces ... 3 weeks ago he was 7 pounds 3 ounces - - he's a little piglet and I can't wait to see how much he weighs next week when I take him to the vet.

I have been going out a lot with friends and family. Sadly there is not a TON to do around here that doesn't involve booze or the bar, and I have been doing my fair share of spending time doing both so working full time will keep my ass outta those situations!

I have been trying to follow my favorite Boys of Summer as often as possible ... my love for the Red Sox has to be obvious with this picture below ..............

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my license plates!!!!! Spending the money on vanity plates was so worth it ... I just can't tell you the happy feeling I get when I see my car. Does that make me pathetic???

This is one of my all-time favorite Red Sox / MFY moments of all time!

BoSox tickets ...

Oh - I did just want to mention that 2 weeks ago TODAY ... My 14 tickets to see the BoSox play the Twinkies came in the mail. I am taking the DS to all 4 games and a friend is coming with ... and my stepdad is going to join us for 2 games.

very excited about all of this ...

Can you tell???????????????????????????

Delays ...

So - I said I was going to be around more. I lied. At the time. I am trying to get here more frequently and fully feel that I will live up to this vow now that baseball season is upon us.

The DS has kept me so busy with hockey ... seriously. We had our last league game tonight - lose in overtime. We finish up next weekend with a tournament out of town.

So - I just have to say - I love to peruse other blogs. All sorts of them. I feel dirty while I am reading everyones biz-nas! So - I love this blog Getting Single ... it's even podcasted ... I love it.

I especially love this song "Single Life" by Carrie Cunningham. You can find her on MySpace HERE

Thoughts ...

... I am capable of having them ya know!

So, the DS still has another 2 months or so of hockey and hockey commitments. YAY! I have enjoyed the season thus far, but it gets to be so long.

I am very excited for Spring Training to begin. You have no idea - unless you are a Red Sox fan then you can understand where I am coming from.

Living in WI in the winter sucks. It sucks even more in Northern MN, which is where I grew up! However - I am pumped that the BoSox are coming to MPLS to play the Twinkies for 4 games in May! I have gotten tickets to all 4 games ~ the only thing more expensive than the tickets at the Dome is the hotel stay! My stepdad is going to come for a few games this year as well; back when the Metrodome was being built he worked on it's construction, but has never seen a game played there - so now's the time since 2009 brings a new stadium.

The DS has begged and pleaded to go to Boston for a game or 2 at Fenway this season ... I haven't decided on that one yet. I plan on taking him there at some point ~ I just don't know that this is the year. Maybe I should start saving now -

i.e. the Mastercard commercial:

2 airline tickets to Boston ~ $900.00
2 tickts to Fenway Park ~ $200.00
2 night hotel stay in Boston ~ $600.00
Taxi fare to Logan Intl ~ $50.00

Seeing your favorite team at the most beautiful place on Earth with your Son ~ PRICELESS

We'll see what happens - but I should really start planning now ....

2 months ...

... it has been 2 months today that I have not blogged.

So much has happened and been going on in my life ... I just haven't had the time or the want.

I'm still in a bit of a depression with the death of my father ...

My son is keeping me so busy with hockey you just have no idea! Games and tournaments and practices; oh my!

The news on the Red Sox doorstep has been so quite ... I need the BoSox action to be back!

Here's to hoping I stop by more frequently ... happy wishes to everyone!
