Weekend Recovery

This has been one busy busy week. This is an unusually crazy time for us and it is wearing me down; it's wearing both of us down. Yesterday, being the biggest day of them all, really sent me over the edge. We were invited to a Cardinals baseball game by my uncle and his family. It was an offer we just couldn't pass up.

The Cardinals are pretty serious business around here and since this is where my husband grew up h has been a life-long fan. Our finances are such that we really don't go to games and we without cable my husband is forced to follow his beloved Cards online. This was just such a great opportunity for him to see his team with a stadium full of fellow fans. So we went.

A baseball game at Busch Stadium is an all out assault on the senses. Between the volume, the crazy lights, the massive crowds, smells and the heat of summer my body was quite overwhelmed. But our seats were great and   we had fun. After 4 innings my body was starting to struggle but I stuck it out through the top of the 10th so my husband could enjoy this rare treat. It was worth it.

Today my whole body hurts and my brain is just not working so I'm just taking it easy today. I say, as if it was a choice I was making when I actually can't manage anything else. This is my plan for the rest of the holiday weekend. What will you be doing?


  1. I am glad you had a good time yesterday. Tomorrow is a big day for me, so today, I am resting. I am going to movie and probably dinner or something like that after the movie with some of my students. It should be a glorious time. On Monday, I will have a couple of lessons and that is about it. I hope you have a restful weekend!


    1. Thanks Heather! Hope your weekend was fun - sounds like you have a great plan :)

  2. We may take a drive over to the coast tomorrow afternoon, and Monday we will be visiting loved ones at the cemetery. It's been a while since I have been, and I just feel a need to go.

    You better get some rest and try to recuperate! Glad you enjoyed the game!

  3. A perfect holiday weekend :) Hope it has gone well and has been fun.
