Attention…drifting. Interest…waning.

Good morning, reading public. I'd like to take the opportunity this morning to talk about the Reds. On a beautiful morning like this, it's easy to be optimistic and want to start the day off right. I started my day off with a whole-wheat English muffin sandwich with an egg and a piece of American cheese. Normally I would have put spinach on it, too, but we ran out of spinach the other night.

I don't normally have such a big breakfast; my weekday fare is a packet of instant oatmeal and low-fat cottage cheese with fruit. Of course, on most days I sit at a computer most of the day, so my caloric needs are not high.

But that's not what I want to talk about today. Today I want to talk about the Reds. Boy, they're having their share of troubles, so much so that's it's getting difficult to really want to pay attention. After all, we've got enough of our own problems without assuming those of our team as well.

Today, for instance, I need to take my kid to the library, to get a haircut, and to play miniature golf before he spends the night at his grandma's house. All of these activities sort of take the “relaxing” out of the weekend, but I sure do love my boy. He's just so sweet. This year for Mother's Day his class decorated flower pots, and his was the most beautiful one. He had covered the entire thing in words and pictures and had obviously put so much time and effort into it. In fact, he was upset that his teacher wouldn't let him take even more time on it so that he could finish decorating the inside. I told him about how we wouldn't be able to see those pictures anyway, once we put the flower inside, but he just wanted it to be perfect.

But again I digress. I'm sure I was talking about something before. Oh well, it'll come to me.

After we drop the kid off at Maw-maw's we'll go bowling with my sister-in-law for her birthday (Happy birthday, Amber!) We sent her something from The Popcorn Factory called a “Diva Bag” which looked like it would suit her nicely. I also sent my mother and my mother-in-law something from The Popcorn Factory, so I was surprised when something arrive for me at work yesterday from The Popcorn Factory. I thought I must have put the wrong shipping address in, but actually Jon had sent me something. What a sweetie pie.

Plus, we need to pack for our big move next weekend, especially since I'll be out of town most of the week on business, and there's ALWAYS house cleaning and yard work that need to be done. And it seems like there's something else, like something I want to watch on t.v. that starts really late and I might not be able to stay awake all the way through because it gets so boring at the end…

Oh yeah, it's Saturday Night Live. Molly Shannon is hosting tonight.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone!
