Well I am sitting here typing out a letter to my team and their parents. I made a practice schedule and am trying to politely encourage parents to help out on game days, but seem to be struggling with the words to nicely say back off during practices. hmmm too many f words may scare people.....ha ha (maybe) I was handed my list of girls names after the game tonight. I don't know any of these kids so Dana says that one of the names is the unlimited arch girl. I rolled my eyes back and said to myself, Dammit Anna was right! See, Anna said to me today that if these kids bugged me, I would probably get them on my team. Dam you!!! What if tried catching at tonight's game. A batter whacked her in the side of the helmet and she turned and looked at the umpire with a look like ...yeah, what's up. I said "are you ok honey" and she said "yeah, what'd he want" in reference to the umpire. I laughed and said nothing honey you were beaned in the head, didn't you hear it?

On a happy note the guy we have been going through for our house loan has hit my last nerve. Brad and I decided to inform him that as of tomorrow we will be talking to other people. I kinda helped, because he got off his ass. But we're still talking to other people, and a new appraiser will be coming tomorrow from a different lending company. Cross you fingers for us.

p.s. Pumpkin (our cat) is prego.

But I wanna play too....

so brad was talking to Danielle (dana) about her softball team this summer and it was said that there were some 22 kids on her team. Brad called the main dude and found out that there were only two teams of 22 and 25 girls. Each girl would not get to play much and the season would go slow due to lack of games. Somehow I became a coach.....ha ha coach Ady! SCARY HUH!
So people are trusting me with the minds of today's youth. hmmm first I need to stop swearing so f'n much. Second I need to learn that this town is not much different from Harvard...lots of people kissing someone's ass. So the first day I said the word boobs and got the look from second chief on the totem pole. Does anyone remember Hopie from Colby? I have to assist on the traveling team on Tuesday nights and the other "girl" is like hopie. The main chief is glad to have someone who can show the girls how to pitch and so I'm currently coaching some 15 girls how to pitch....at the same time. I actually told on girl to go away, she keeps showing up in flip flops and telling me "that's not how my mom pitches." Finally I said how does your mom pitch and she shows me an unlimited arch that need it's own zip code. Unlimited arch goes up...hangs there for five minutes...then has to hit the black rubber behind home plate. Then I had a girl in 3rd grade that I renamed "What if"....what if the sky fell...what if I jump when I pitch....what if the girl hits it and it hits me....what if.....I said would you be interested in being a catcher. Danielle is a pitcher (and no I never made her do it) she is doing really good. I try not to be like my dad was with the 50 pitches a day YES DRILL SARGENT routine. We have to pick our teams on Monday because right now it's been a massive practice with all of the girls. Big chief asked me if I had any girls that I might want on my team. I thought...shit...I've turned into my dad! I named kids lefty, and what if.

Grandmas 86th birthday
Our neighbor has seaweed brought over from lake loraine. They need somewhere to dump it and he mixes it with his crops. So they dredge (is that the right term?) up frogs and our recent visitor a very large and angry snapping turtle. I named him snippy. I tried to poke him with a stick to get him to put his head in his shell so I could grab him, but he bit off the end of the stick.
I decided it would not be wise to grab him and used a shovel and large plastic bin. Please look at the picture below. Don't worry Snippy made it safely back to the lake while ridding in a plastic bin in the back of my truck. By the way, I didn't know that turtles hiss. Dad called up granny to see what she wanted for her birthday. She said nothing, of course! So dad asks her if she would like a turtle for her pool. Anyone who knows my grandma knows her weird sound effects, grunts, groans and that yodel when she wants you to know the phone is for you. So she says no. Well I found one of those turtles that you put into your pool and it swims around, so I shoved it in the bottom of a cute purse, that she loved, and played a joke on her. It worked out great, and she loves the turtle. When I told dad on the way there what I had planned, he was like, yep, your my kid.

Brad always thinks that I'm writing something bad about him in my blog....so here's my beef.
If I'm walking down the hall with cloths in my arms....don't ask me "what cha doing?"
If I'm standing next to the stove stirring something....don't ask me "what cha doing?"
If I'm in the bathroom and the door is closed................don't ask me "what cha doing?"

wow sunlingt!

So it stopped rainning, and I can get outside today. Our friend Adam is going to help cut down some more trees. I have 9 bottles of ortho that I need to get on the trees...we have wood ticks! Every once and a while the buggers are getting on the dogs and myself. I really don't like it and I freak out about it when I find one. I'm sorry, but they are suck a creepy bug. Grandma turns 86 on sunday, so I need to find her something.....but what?!

why am I watching the mtv awards!!!!

It's rainning and I am so bored that I am watching the mtv awards...actually I did watch the VH1 rock honors...I didn't realize that Heart sang that many songs!
So the new truck is running great...the best part is that I can serve that up to Brad (ford man) that his little girlfriends CHEVY is awesome! haha He doesn't read this so I can poke fun.
Well I found most of the back yard and then we cut down some trees and it rained a bunch. The weeds are overtaking the yard again....cry...I tried so hard to find it. For those who don't know it is like a mystery game out back. Last fall I stepped on sooo many nails that I gave up, this spring I burned most of it and found piles of wood with nails in them and a trailer...yep a trailer was hidding in the shrubs.
Danielle wants to be called Dana now. When she said that I thought it was cute. She wants to grow up and have a cool name for JR. HIGH this is big time now..haha Maybe it will be D for high school.
If I get this figured out I will post a few pictures.
xoxoxo to my bigest fan (Billy corgan) j/k so ready for the new pumpkins album!!!!
love ya all
