Wednesday, day 30..

So, a new look today for the blog.  I keep getting emails from Word Press about different themes. So, bored this evening, I decided to look around a little more in the blog dashboard. They give you a random sampling of the available themes.  Some themes cost 75.00!  Yikes, way to expensive for me. I will try this one out for a week or two.  I promise I won’t have a different theme everyday, that would be too confusing.

Tomorrow, DS1 will be 23 years old!.  Hard to belive. I can still remember the day he was born.  We will celebrate Sunday night.  Tomorrow night is lacrosse after work. I leave in the morning and don’t get home until 11 pm. He will work until six or seven. DS2 is working, not sure the hours. DS3 is working at the bark and biscuit until 9:30 pm. It looks like the DW might be eating dinner alone tomorrow night.  Sounds like a cereal for dinner night for her.  So, what do you get your 23-year-old son for his birthday? In the old days, it was easy. Whatever the most popular video or computer game was. Or the latest lacrosse gear, stick, gloves, helmet or shirt. Now, the relationship has changed, he is an adult. So, we settled on a 750 of Patron Silver, a card, a cake and some debt forgiveness.  And his favorite dinner, whatever that might be.  I have until Sunday to get that taken care of.

I may be going to a concert Friday night with DS2. I got a Groupon trying to sell tickets to see a group called the Decemberists. I sent the email to DS2, he said, I never heard of them. I said, me neither. The description of the musical style sounded like it would appeal to him. We kicked it around for two days, and if you know anything about Groupons, the offer expires.  I did find cheaper seats on Stub Hub. I will discuss this with him after I’m done blogging tonight. The show is at something called the event center at the Borgata in Atlantic City.  That should be a real joy of a drive on a Friday evening in the summer. Leave early and sit in traffic.  The culturing would be good for me.

Saturday DW and I are going to Annapolis for an overnight stay. We have tickets to see the Chesapeake Bayhawks vs. the Hamilton Nationals (Major League Lacrosse). The game will be played at the Marine Corps. Memorial Stadium.  We watch the games on tv each week and decided to go see one in person.  It will be hot, but it should be fun. The hotel is a half mile from the stadium, so that should work out just fine. So, a busy end to the week.

Today’s picture is from November, 2006. DS1 received a partial athletic scholarship from Wheeling Jesuit University to play lacrosse. In this picture he is signing his National Letter of Intent. This is a binding contract between the high school athlete and the university. Behind us is the high school athletic director (L) and the high school lacrosse coach (R). This was and still is, a very proud day for us.  Enjoy!
