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 ---
