Sorry for being absent, I have been so busy and haven't felt like hooking up my ancient laptop and waiting 3 hours to write and post. My birthday is coming, someone want to buy me a new one?? lol
Today is the inspection on our new house, Monday is the appraisal, next Saturday my Dad and Aunt are throwing us a reception and then we hopefully close on the house the following week! I CANNOT wait! I can't wait to live with my husband, I can't wait to not feel like a gypsy, I can't wait to have a routine again! Then it is back to making up recipes and hopefully working out! The kids go back to school 3 days after we close....that's going to be a pain in the ass but I'm thankful we will be there before instead of after!
The other night I went to a Rockies game with my hilarious friend Dorlene. As I was enjoying the gorgeous sunset of Colorado. If you have never seen one, get here asap. They are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen, the mountain backdrop helps I'm sure. I realized how much baseball has taught me!
|My happy place|
|It's even better with beer|
Let's start from the beginning...I HATED baseball.....no really! I started going to karaoke when I was 21 and all of the people loved it. I ignored it and always told them "baseball is stupid" "it's so boring".
One of them said come to a game with me I promise it won't be boring....so kicking and screaming I went. Guess what?? I was hooked! When you are at the game there is so much life, so much fun, so much emotion.
|This says it all|
The true test was watching it on TV. It is hard to pay attention, everyone looks the same, balls are flying (haha) and it is just hard to stay focused. I watched slowly and with my friend's help learned about the game and who each player was. That helps a lot.
It just so happened that year not having any idea when I started loving the game, they went to the world series. Of course it was against none other than the Red Sox. I could not get enough of baseball after that!
As you learn about the players, you learn they are nothing like basketball or football players. Yes they make mistakes and there are certain ones (*cough* Jeter *Cough*) that like to be the center of attention but seriously how much do you know about baseball players and their personal lives?? Not much I'm sure of it!
I Hate crowds, they make me crazy! I get claustrophobic and don't look forward to going somewhere where I know there will be a lot of people.....except a baseball game. A crowd there doesn't bother me one bit.
Heart....these players have a ton of it. They love the game and you can feel it just watching them. They have their good games and bad games but overall whether they win or lose they still get to do something they love for a living.
The excitement-When you are at a game and they are winning or losing the fans are some great cheerleaders. We may have to rally ALOT but if you are a true fan, that's what you do.
It has taught me to not give up. At the end of that game even if they are losing they don't give up. I have tried to do that with life. It doesn't happen most of the time but every time I go to a game or even just watch one it reminds me. I cheer, jump up and down, get excited, get sad, get mad....all the emotions that come with life.
If you want something go for it....what's the worst that can happen?
