Excerpt of the Stuff of Life

No time to post. Schools now out and baseball season looming. Andrew has 49 scheduled games. Most at least 1-2 hours driving time away. One tourney in another state! South Dakota! Crapola!
That was almost like a haiku.
Anyway, lots been going on. Track, work, lawn care...you know the stuff of life.
I've been using facebook mostly as my graduating class was setting up our 25th reunion. That was last night. What a great time we had. Too much alcohol was consumed. And we didn't get home until 4:30 or 5 a.m. My usual time to get up. Felt weird and good.
I stayed up for awhile after I got home. Unwinding. Went outside. There had been a downpour earlier in the evening and the air was soft and the birds singing and it was beautiful outside. I wished for a newspaper and a steaming cup of coffee. Instead I sat for a moment on our porch and thought about our party and tried to will the remaining alcohol in my bloodstream to waft away. Unfortunately most of it stayed and when I woke up later I had a teeny hangover. Just felt a little drunkish yet. Nothing bad but I bet I'll be tired later.
Well, laundry beckons and the lawn and the dishes and the flowers need watered and the fridge needs cleaned out and I need to vacuum and dust. hmmmm maybe
