Hello Again

Well, it's been a long time again. I really need to get back on track with the blog, but life has been getting in the way.


Today is Mother's Day. I hope you had a great one. Mine was better than I thought it would be. We went to church and sang beautifully. My saxophone playing kind of sucked, but it was okay. I hadn't played in more than two weeks, so it was about like I expected. We sang "Come, Holy Spirit, Come" by David Kauffman and it was just amazing. We had a guest conductor because JD was at his brother's wedding in Ohio.


Between services, the Youth held Breakfast for Mom in which our youth served us muffins and coffee. It was very nice and I got to visit with the other youth moms, something I don't get to do very often. DS#2 even stopped my on my way to the coffee pot to get it for me. He's been sweet all day today.


After the second service, DS#2 went home and took our instruments for us so that we could go to the UTSA baseball game. DS#1 told us that if we were going to go to any one game at Roadrunner Field this year, today was the day. Their magic number to win the conference title again was two. They needed a win and Lamar-Beaumont needed a loss. We went just so that we could watch the game and hope to see a celebration afterwards. What do you think happened?

Meet your 2008 Southland Conference Second-Consecutive Champions, the University of Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners! (Photos from UTSA Athletics website)

It was a sight to see because the dugout was in the dark as to the outcome of the Lamar game. I was texting DS#1 in the press box, but he wasn't allowed to give out the status. I guess the coaches wanted the 'Runners to play their game and not worry about how the other team was doing. It worked. They were clueless until after the last out.

After the game, DH and I came home and rested. I made another layout for my Disney trip. Since I haven't seen my camera all weekend I can't post a picture of it and in fact, the camera will be going to Arlington, TX tomorrow with DS#1 to go see the Texas Rangers play the Seattle Mariners. The reason for that is the new Mariners catcher/designated hitter is leaving tickets for him at will-call. They're friends. When Jeff Clement was down here visiting his brother, a UTSA coach, during the off-season, he worked out at the UTSA facilities and DS#1 helped him out, gave him rides, etc. So they know each other. I hope he gets a few good shots with him and Jeff. He'll probably put them on the wall of his store, along with a broken bat that belonged to Jeff. Hmmm....

Anyway, after the game and us resting a bit, the four of us went out for supper. It was nice to have the family together for a change since everyone seems to be off in their own directions doing their own things. DH thought they should take me out for a meal for Mother's Day. We had fun. Even though DS#1 was tired and thinks his little brother is a moron, he still laughed at some of the jokes and had a good time. I know I did.

And in other news, DS#2 was accepted into UTSA last week for his undergraduate work. He graduates high school in less than a month and now I know for sure he's going to college. Yeah!!!

I hope that all you mothers have had a wonderful day in some way and all of you that aren't mothers thanked God for a mother who gave life to you. God bless you all!
