This weekend was busy and good. Saturday, The Youngest had an early baseball game, and it started kind of chilly, but ended pretty warm. They actually played 40 minutes more than scheduled because both teams were doping really well and the kids were having fun. That left me no time to go home before my three hour snack bar shift. We had a huge run on nachos, which are the best deal and the most artery clogging of the snacks. You get a large clam shell (similar to take out container) with chips, cheese, chili and jalapenos for only $3, which is the same price as a hot dog. Granted, they are the foot long ones, but still the nachos are about 3 times the amount of food. Afterward, I went home and did some laundry, picked up both boys and took them to my Nephews' game. They are both on the same team this year, and they play really well. They played in the sand at the playground after, and we went home and had dinner.
Sunday, each of the boys had a birthday party to attend, one at Pump It Up, the other at Build-a-Bear. The Dude took Build-a-bear, and I took Pump It Up, dropped off the boy and went to my folks to finish the job of removing the Malware from last week. It didn't take very long, and actually had time for lunch. The rest of the day was spent on laundry, and made a Pork shoulder and broccoli slaw for dinner. Oh, I also started taking my blood pressure medicine, since I hadn't called for an appointment with my acupuncturist, and decided it was better to go on it, and then come off of it when I can naturally reduce my BP, than to not go on it at all.
Today the Youngest had a friend over for a play date after school, and my folks brought over a couple of chairs they'd refinished for me into plant stands, along with plants for them. Pictures on those later. My boss today asked that I consider adding to my responsibilities something that I'd rather not do. Trying to be a team player, and come up with a diplomatic way to not have to do it. So far, only have a minimal answer of I'll thin about it, and take the necessary training.
My company has not yet gone on strike, and I am relieved so far. My personal opinion is that they will wait until August, when there is the potential for an improved economy, and greater impact in number of people striking.
