  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

America’s game

Little League baseball season is over. Daddy-O coached for the first time this year. Farm League. That’s one step above T-Ball and one below Minors, for those of you with a life.

We almost didn’t let B play. I was completely against it. The last time he played (T-ball) was year before last. Just like the year before that, he was very excited to start and by the 3rd game or so was building sand castles in centerfield from sheer boredom. We skipped last year because of it and I wasn’t up for more of the same: battles to get him ready and sitting through games in biting spring ocean breezes.

But this year rocked!!! B’s Focalin made all the difference in his ability to focus on the game. He had a great season and really enjoyed himself. And what a joy to watch he and Daddy-O play catch in the back yard every evening, bond over baseball games on tv, and share the joy of collecting baseball cards & comparing stats.

I’m doing a video for the end of season pizza party. It has been a labor… but definitely one of love.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, a few photo highlights of B’s season.

I’m glad B wants to play again next year. And I think Daddy-O will coach again too. But right now, I can’t wait until soccer…
