Doc Appointment Today

At 2:00. Last night may be the worst I’ve slept in as long as I can remember. This morning is the worst I’ve felt since the middle of the first trimester. I’m sure the doc will love seeing me...

Hmmm…

Pregnancy has afforded me an uncanny ability to simply forget words. I’ll know a word that I want to use, it’s in my brain, it’s right there on the tip of my tongue. And then all of the sudden, File Not Found. Great time to start a...

Stan Upstaged by “THE MAN”

I know this is yesterday’s news, but I just came across this video and it reminded me again how poorly the recognition of Stan the Man Musial was at the All Star game.  To me it’s simple.  This was Stan’s day in St. Louis.  We all wanted it.  We all poised ourselves for the moment that gave us goosebumps and chills just imaging it.  Can you think of one person that could have seized the stage and pulled the rug out from under Stan the Man on this epic day?  Enter the President of the United States.  Really?  The President?  Politics completely set aside–what a shame for Stan and for St. Louis baseball fans.  Great that the President was in town for the event.  Great that he threw out the first pitch wearing a White Sox jacket and mom jeans.  That’s all fine and good and I really have zero issue with that fact.  My beef is that Musial was carted out to the side of the field to hand the President of the United States the first pitch ball.  Who’s the focus on here?  Why did Stan have to share the spotlight?  Couldn’t there have been separate recognitions?  Couldn’t Stan have handed the ball to Pujols…pose for a picture…give that all famous swing…then have him circle the field and exit back by the bullpen?  Pujols could have handed the ball...

Cheers! A break!

Jarrod and I ventured into town (we call Edwardsville “in town”) to figure out what’s ailing my car currently.  From Hamel to Kevin Prott’s Quality Auto Service “in town” is exactly 8.3 miles.  In those 8.3 miles, we jumped my car a total of 4 times.  There’s nothing quite like coasting powerless to the side of the road while getting past by heavy farm machinery.  The tale of the Ford Focus finally takes a turn for the better.  After dropping off the vehicle, Jarrod receives a phone call from the auto shop.  In Mr. Prott’s words, the new alternator “shot sh!t” and he replaced it free of charge with a brand spankin’ new one.  Cue: Angel Choir!  We needed the good news, and I’m going to soak it up and try to be as happy about it as long as I would have been depressed if something else bad happened.  A quick shout out to Kevin Prott at Quality Auto Service by R.P. Lumber in Edwardsville.  The guy tells you what you need, what you could do, and charges you extremely fairly.  Plus, he backs his work.  618-656-0155 if you need a mechanic.  The guy is...
