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 ....

Novy, have you ever been to Fenway? It's all that, AND MORE! The DS will never forget his first look, more like an open-mouthed stare, when he walks up the ramp toward the emerald greenness of fabled Fenway.
Be well...always. You're a great Mom. And a Sox fan,too! Be still, my heart! Have a great Super Sunday, and go Pats!!!!!

Of course I have been to Fenway! I went for the Yankee serious in 2006 .... August 18th - the double header!

I still haven't decided if we are going - though I just bought our tickets to the 4 games the Red Sox play in Minn-E-So-Ta!
