It was a busy weekend - much busier than I wanted it to be.
Like any man (okay - most men) I don't really know how to clean house. I can do what I'm told - just point me at it and say "Do!" and it's done. But please don't say "Go clean that room." That ain't gonna work. It's just the way I'm made. There's too much to do, too many choices to make, and I don't know where to start. Something to do with ADD, I think.
You did know I have ADD, right?
Granny may well be running the Rehab Center by the time she's ready to come home. They already call her the "Crochet Lady". Her favorite thing to do is to knit or crochet something for someone when she becomes aware of the need.
We are cleaning house and tossing clutter and yada, yada, yada, in order to give the dining room over to Grannie and the hospital bed she's going to need when she comes home.
I'm kinda glad. It will help me reorder my little studio corner and I'll be able to re-establish my computer space in the family room so I can work more easily on photos.
USA acquitted themselves well in the World Cup - I hated to see them lose the game against Ghana - but if they could have played the 1st half like they played the second half, they might well have gone through to the round of 8. On the other hand - I don't see how they would have won the next game, and I'd rather see them ready to go all the way to the final game.
England, on the other hand (my other favorite team), played poorly in all four games. Or should I say, not up to my expectations for the country that produces teams like Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool. That said, my big question is "Where the hell was Rooney?"
Cubs won, yesterday. The offense finally showed up. And we did it without Carlos Zambrano. I've always thought he was a good pitcher - and he is - but just where his emotional development separates from his ability as a pitcher is that mysterious place where he will be able to tell his grandchildren the love of the Cubs fans disappeared to.
