Is it Time To Wake Up??

Hello? Where did the weekend go? Friday night we were out at dinner (the wife and I, the boy was camping) then got home and played a little Guitar Hero (very fun, we have 2 controllers). Then instead of TV we talked, played some more and then went to bed. I awoke at 5:15am and drove to Conseco Fieldhouse to work the 2007 IHSSA Boy's State Finals. It technical directed 4 basketball games and all the in between stuff (half time, commercial breaks, award ceremonies, in between games). That means we were on the air from 10:30am till 4:30pm with NO BREAKS. Then took a quick break (50 minutes), then back to the grind; live from 6:00pm till 10:30pm, with NO BREAKS. So I left home at 5:30am and got back at 11pm and worked my ass off.

To top it off I went to bed at midnight, STARVING (remember no breaks) and the alarm woke me up at 4:20am to go to REGULAR work. That's right, after the marathon freelance job I had to fill in for someone on the AM shift. I get home after 10am and then pick up the boy, go to lunch with the parents, my sister, and my brother and his wife (down from Chicago); sit around my parent's house to visit and then get home after 4pm. Once again the weekend flew by and I have nothing to show for it but a sore back and bags under my eyes. Thank goodness vacation starts Friday at 1pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some Quick Hits:
  • I have the greenest lawn on the block ( :-) ) and know I will have to mow it badly when I return from vacation!!! It is too short now to mow but I figure a week will do it and I will be in NY then. Better then shoveling snow!!!!
  • Got the boy's report card. While not as good as we would like it, it is 100% better then where he was heading!!!
  • The wife is in Cleveland this week, that means two guys living at home alone for 4 days, ohoh!!
