Happy Thursday! It’s raining…yippee! Seriously, I am so relieved that the sky opened up last night and dropped a fair amount of rain. I’m hoping that the dreaded drops keep falling all day long. At this point it’s the only time I feel relief from my allergies. Yesterday as I quietly sat in the back of Church (school May Day celebration) I started wheezing and sneezing (similar to an asthma attack) until I literally had to crawl over two infant bucket seats to ESCAPE. Fortunately my kids were sitting in front with their respective classes, so they had no idea it was their mother disturbing the peace. Of course, I then sat in the parking lot for forty minutes for fear that if I returned it would likely happen again. I missed the procession and crowning ceremony completely.
Any baseball fans out there? Well, if you follow the Red Sox you are probably familiar with former player/current announcer Jerry Remy. After a short absence from the NESN booth it was revealed last night that Jerry is ill…recovering from pneumonia. Sadly, this comes on the heels of surgery last fall to tackle lung cancer. This news was a huge shock. As a sport’s blog reader I never had any inkling that Jerry was battling such a fierce opponent. Few sports icons hold universal appeal. In New England Remy is a sports icon and he is loved by all. I’m praying for a complete and swift recovery!
Must tackle my ‘to do’ list immediately:
- Clean the whole house before hubby returns tonight
- Shop for Mother’s Day gifts
- Write because I’m hopelessly behind
- Eat because nothing brings me greater joy
Right now I’m going to go out on a limb and say that on four hours sleep some of these things are simply not going to happen. Although the last one is a sure thing .
