so, what goes good with a concussion????

STREP THROAT!!!! Thats right and if you are a super kid you share it with your mother --- needless to say Brendan and I have been DOWN FOR THE COUNT!! I don't even remember Tuesday or Wednesday. Antibiotics are my friend right now -- We (Brendan and I) woke up on Friday PAIN FREE!!!!

This entry is actually being written over a 4 day period ----

My brother sent me this in an email but he doesn't get the credit for it -- Jenel sent it to him!!! So, she gets the credit!!!!

A monkey is sitting in a tree, smoking a joint, when a lizard walks past. The lizard looks up and says to the monkey "Hey! What are you doing?" The monkey says, "Smoking a joint, come up and join me, my cold-blooded friend." So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they have another joint. After a while the lizard says his mouth is dry and that he's going to get a drink from the river. At the riverbank, the lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls in. An Alligator sees this and swims over to the stoned lizard, helping him to the side. He then asks the lizard, "What's the matter with you?!" The lizard explains to the alligator that he was sitting in the tree, smoking a joint with his new monkey friend. He then explained how his mouth got dry, and that he was so wasted that, when he went to get a drink from the river, he fell in! The inquisitive alligator says he has to check this out. He walks into the jungle and finds the tree where the monkey is sitting, finishing a joint. He looks up and says "Hey, MONKEY!" The monkey looks down and says "FUUUUUCK, DUDE... how much water did you drink?"

So, technically today is Sunday, March 23rd --- That's right Easter Sunday. Marilyn is REALLY REALLY sick so we are just staying home and we'll get together with them at a later date. We are slowly coming back to life here!! Yikes --- I have had strep throat probably 5 times in my life maybe........I wonder if it gets worse as you get older. It was literally like getting hit by a semi truck (or at least what I think it would feel like). Brendan had little league photos on Saturday morning --- think O'dark early!!!!! We had to meet the team at 7:45 a.m. -- so, I pop into my favorite coffee stand to get a zipperdoodle and what do I do???? Now, some of you well, most of you won't be shocked at this at all BUT.......I popped the front driver's tire -- I know I know I don't have any idea why I pop tires like I do -- at least this time it was just onePhew I called Jeff in a panic because I had about 5 minutes to get Brendan to the field to his team..Jeff came and traded me cars -- he put the spare on the van while I took Brendan for photos. While I was taking Brendan to Seattle to see Christopher Huson his acupuncturist -- that guy is AMAZING!!!!! Jeff took Ginger to work and then the van in to get the tire fixed. So, I have a new tire (did I mention I blow the sides of tires out so they can't be repaired). In addition, Jeff got some kind warranty and the tire guy said "now, your wife can flatten as many tires as she wants and we'll just keep giving you new ones!!!" I took Brendan to practice -- it was actually a pretty nice day -- instead of a regular practice they had a scrimmage against one of the other major teams. Brendan was kinda stressing out because he had spent almost a week in bed -- he did pretty well. He started the game in Right field (for 2 innings) then was moved to 2nd base for the rest of the game. He made a couple of really really good solid plays and had an amazing hit unfortunately his hit went directly to the short-stop but it was a great hit!!!! We also finally got his game schedule!!! WOOO HOOO!!! 19 games from March 29th to May 15th!!! 3 games a week.

Please take note of the eye black that Brendan is sporting -- the entire team had it on!! Solidarity and team and all that goes with it!! I was teasing Brendan and tried to explain that when applying eyeliner it goes ON the eyelid not UNDER the eye ---

So, I am off to finish fixing the ham and side dishes for my family -- I'll check in later.
Hey Val, just wanted to say again that I was thinking of you yesterday ---

She is an entire box of AWESOMENESS!!!!!!

That is what Aunt Sharlene is!!!!!!

So, since Monday Brendan has had a migraine headache --- He missed school on Tuesday but went this morning.

When I logged on this morning my brother sent me an IM asking how Brendan was. He and Sharlene didn't think that Brendan's migraine was caused by the busy baseball weekend. (Get ready for the lightbulb moment).................. Lightbulb IdeaThey think it is from the knee to the face that Brendan took in his basketball game on Friday --- I TOTALLY and completely forgot about Brendan even playing in a game on Friday night. It was bad enough that they took him out of the game and he didn't go back. Steven said he may have a concussion. I grabbed my phone & purse as I was heading out the door -- Grabbed Brendan from school and the dr. got us right in. Mild concussion.......After seeing Dr. Christopher I took Brendan to see Mr. Chris his acupuncturist Voodoo (just kidding) Brendan feels a bit better and is upstairs resting. No contact sports for a week and he should be good.

so, if you see her give her a hug -- show her the love people -- she is AMAZING:)

AUNT SHARLENE you are an entire box of AWESOMENESS!!!!!

Uncle Steven your not so bad yourself!!!! We Are Not Worthy
It's it so great to have people who love your kids so much!!!!!

I know I know --- it's been a few days

but really we have been BUSY!! This will be really quick because I am downloading someof the roughly 4000 photos from this weekend. Brendan had such a great time!! He loves it!!! He played 5 games......well, they were about 50 minutes long and you could only score 3 runs per inning. You know pre-season:)

Out of the 5 games Brendan started 4. He batted 500 yesterday (saturday) and 750 today? He was walked once today so I don't know how they are counting that so, maybe he only batted 500 today -- but, that's not bad right?

Steven, Sharlene, Matthew and Dylan came yesterday along with Brendan's friend Sara -- and my Auntie Hinaye came with Jenninfer and her little boy Conner. Do I have an AMAZING FAMILY OR WHAT!!! Jeff's mom is so sick right now -- Jeff told her we had better not see her this weekend!!! It's only pre-season for goodness sake!!! There will be plenty of games for her and Grandpa to come to:)

Of his 4 starts 3 of them were at 2nd base -- he really likes it:) After playing 3 games and a batting practice yesterday Brendan came home and he and Jeff went over to the local field and practiced some defensive moves for like 2 hours. OK, so it wasn't just Brendan and Jeff Steven and Matthew were there also:) UNCLE STEVEN ROCKS!!!

OK, So I do need to run but I will be back with some photos:) See Auntie Sue, Auntie Kim, Michael, Christy and everyone else who means so much to us --- I'll be back:)
