Living La Vida Loca

*Picture from the Boston Globe*

My first day as a wild and crazy guy went like this:

10:30 a.m. Saw Ang and the kids off with a kiss, a hug, and a wave.

11:00-1:00 Went to the bank, got a haircut, and returned my overdue Jackie Robinson book to the library.

1:00-5:00 Alternated between watching "Deadliest Catch", messing around on the computer, and vacuuming the carpet and mopping the hardwood floors.

5:00-11:45 Took a shower, ate supper, and watched the Red Sox play the Devil Rays.

11:50 Went to bed.

It's official: I am the most BORING single man I've ever seen. Thank God I've already found the love of my life, because based on yesterday, I don't know if I would EVER be able to get another woman's attention.

As for the game, the final score of 12-6 in favor of the Sox is a little misleading. The DRays just sort of hung around, and in the bottom of the 9th, Pap gave up a 2 run shot by Johnny Gomes to tie it up at 6 apiece.

It took a bases loaded walk by Lugo, a bases clearing double by Youk, and a 2 run double by Manny in the top of the 12th to get the Sox ahead, and Javier Lopez closed it out. To say the Devil Ray pen is horrible is an insult to all the truly horrible 'pens. They are brutal: watching that debacle makes me appreciate the job that has been done by pitching coach John Farrell and the Red Sox pitching staff all year: here's to ya fellas. Great job.

As for today, I think I'm gonna practice that trick with the water Youk is doing: looks pretty exciting.

Morning Ted. Hope batchin' it brings more exciting times today ;)

We're doing laundry, cleaning house, and gonna settle into the game today. Getting this female batchpad conducive to her adult son living with her is NOT an easy task..let me tell YOU.

But he's been real helpful in helping re-organize my storage shed. :)

Ted D said...

Howdy Tex! Don't count on more excitement: all I've got planned is the game this afternoon.

I slept in, ate a bowl of frosted mini wheats, and took a shower. Look out: I'm on FIRE!

I feel for you on getting the pad son accessable: tell Josh thumbs up for the shed work!

CC said...

Soundtrack for Ted = Life was easy, when it was boring...
You should listen to it this week :D

Also boring = A 0-0 game in the 7th inning!

Ted D said...

Hey Carol: I'll give it a whirl.

Tight game: pulling for Lugo here to get Coco home.

CC said...

Errr, can we have boring back?- Dice gives up a homer, and Tito is in for the pitching change!

Ted D said...

It's OK Carol: the Devil Ray pen is Bad News Bearsesque.

CC said...

I'm going to hold you to that TD.

CC said...

4-0 The Devils *^^*&

CC said...

Back-to-Back homers 5-0

CC said...

Yay - The Sox go back-to-back themselves to get on the board (5-2).

Ted D said...

KAYLEE said...

Stacy said...

Ted, that was quite an exciting first day you had there, and today didn't shape up to be much better. :)

Just face it; you'll be driving the van to Myrtle by Thursday and begging Angie to come home. I say 5 days is your limit.

KAYLEE said...

Ted D said...

Kaylee, just do a little spell check before hitting publish and you'll be fine.

Stacy, I am strong and a man.

I may can make it until Friday morning.

KAYLEE said...

//I may can//

Ted D said...

Kaylee,

I know you are having surgery in a few weeks: so I'm being nice.

But Oy Vey if Ciera is like this at 16, I'm gonna need professional help.

Tex said...

Ted ALL kids are like that at 16

I can be hired out at a very high cost for counseling :)

Ted D said...

Tex, I don't care about cost.

You are hired: because I will LOSE it if Ciera is even close to that.

Tex said...

::calls job and quits as I have my retirement fund all set:: :)

Ted D said...

You got it Tex.

How do you feel about being a Nanny for Ciera, Rakes, and Trot?

You'll earn your money, I guarantee you.

Tex said...

I love kids...always have. Been babysitting since I was 12 yrs old. I taught 2 yr old sunday school, worked in an emotionally disturbed unit for kids 9-16, jpo for too many years, lots of friends kids love me...

But I can honestly say...i have no desire to have a job to be with kids ALL the time...

I keep telling my cousin who lives in NC Im gonna come stay at their home for a weekend to give them a vacation...ive yet to do it...but i have good intentions :)

KAYLEE said...
