"And it's root, root, root for the home team..."
Yesterday, as I was pretty much spattered in mud and dirt from the yard, my cousin, who happens to live down the street from the "new" old house, stopped by to see how I was doing. She happened to have two tickets to the Padres VS the Diamondbacks, right behind home plate on the lower level of Petco Park. I hadn't been to Petco Park yet so I accepted the tickets. I cleaned up and went home for a change of clothes... Since Michael was up to his ears in work and couldn't get away, I took my son, Erik. We rode the trolley into Dowtown, just so I wouldn't have to deal with parking. While on the ride, Erik comments that "baseball is such a tedious and boring sport." Whatever... With in a minute of finding my cousin and her friend, and being seated, the Padres scored... I turned to DS and said "Boring?" It was a good game, and being up close behind home plate was "wicked awesome." The Padres won 2-0.
It's back to the "new" old house today and I'm planting my veggie garden AND more clean up work, probably the kitchen drawers... I was kind of concerned that I wasn't getting enough calories yesterday, especially protein, but I sort of made up for it at the game... The protein was still lacking and a hot dog and Cracker Jacks at the game probably weren't the best choices.... Carb loading starts tomorrow.
