The top video is of Mikey pitching–only the first one is a strike–and the bottom one is of him catching. Those of you who don’t have children in organized sports might be surprised to hear all the commotion from the coaches and parents. I think the kids are listening to 12 different voices at any one time.
My husband got a big promotion at work a couple of weeks ago, and today was his first day on the job. So far he likes it. We’re still figuring out how this will all work. He will work from home when he is not traveling, but he will be traveling a lot.
It was the first travel day on the new job, which meant he missed Mikey pitching and catching. I took a video of both, which is why it is bare bones basic. I did much better with the pictures, if I do say so myself. I really need to learn how to make videos. I assume the first step is to buy a video camera instead of using a phone.
I really appreciated your support on my post about perfectionism, as much as it surprised me. It’s funny–I wrote that post after Mikey’s game feeling tired and rushed. I thought it was too long and a bit of a jumbled mess. I woke up early and almost deleted it before too many of you read it, but I didn’t miss the irony in doing that so I kept it up. I still have so much to learn about writing and blogging and self criticism. Related: Hillary Rettig wrote a book on perfectionism. I don’t know how she got wind of my post, but luckily I passed muster for the most part.
Daddy came home today! Also, I’m getting requests to read, review, and talk about books, which I love. Here is a guest post I did on Erin’s blog about what I’m reading now with the boys. As for reviewing books, I do worry every time someone asks me and I always encourage them to go through my previous reviews because I’m not really a gusher or a ZOMG I super-heart this book! kind of gal. I’m picky and like to complain, but not just for the hell of it. Well, at least not in this case!
I’m so behind on reading–mainly because I got caught up in that stupid YA/NA list of books and read three paranormal books (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) for I have no idea why. Today my schedule is pretty light, so I should be able to catch up on my reading for book club and for a review I promised. A day where I “have to” read isn’t a bad day at all.
I have no idea! It’s Mother’s Day, and I don’t know what the family has planned for me. I can tell you I have planned to become intimately familiar with the corner of our sectional to do some reading.
Have a happy, happy weekend everyone!
