Random thoughts on why I’ve been MIA

July 13, 2009 summer 10

I can’t believe a week has gone by and I haven’t blogged once. Summer schedules are insane!

Last week I did more than just play with my iphone, though I admit it’s such a fun toy, I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing to be so in touch!

Last Tuesday I sent Adrienne off to a College Exposure Camp, where @ 15 college coaches spent 2 days working with @ 120 softball players. They did batting drills and she did workouts for her position, she is a catcher. They did game simulation putting them on teams and seeing how they performed. I’m proud to say she caught the eye of several coaches and thankfully coaches she was interested in impressing. She did her homework and checked out the schools, their academics and really selected schools she is interested in attending and playing softball. She then had 3 days of a exposure tournament with her team. Eight girls on her team went to the camp, they had a great week together and with 3 coaches. This is the first in a long process of getting her recognized and with any luck getting her offers for scholarship money for college. This also includes keeping her grades up and doing well on SAT/ACT. Colleges want the whole package and right now Adrienne is on the right path………..yay my baby girl.

I spent last week watching Caitie leave most of the time…….and then on Friday afternoon, as we headed out for a weekend of softball, she headed to south FL with her boyfriend’s family for a week long vacation. They have several time-share exchanges and so she is spending the week in a lovely resort, and spending a couple of days and nights going to Key West too. She’s having a blast so far.

I finished a book last week…………book review coming up tomorrow, make sure you come back to read. I started a new book, and oddly enough books just keep finding their way to me. I bought one off the bargain racks at B&N this weekend……I mean honestly under $5 and a memoir I wanted to read……..can’t go wrong. Here is the funniest thing, Kevin was unpacking one of the bags from the weekend and found a book. It was on my nightstand when I went in last night and I recognized it as something I wanted to read, but where did it come from……..I’m still perplexed as to when I bought or was given this book………….the last time I used that luggage piece was in April……spring break, before that it was January, I think………lol, and I still can’t remember. Yikes……..I’m putting a moratorium on buying and even wanting more books………I have half a dozen or more that I own and need to read!!

This week is craziness………Adrienne playing in a week long tournament, but it’s semi-local, depending on what fields they are assigned, games start tomorrow. Lots of other things going on too…………………off to get busy!

    Finding a new book hidden in luggage is like finding a 20 dollar bill tucked in the pocket of a jacket or something! Sounds like the girls are having fun!

    I was wondering if you had fell off of the earth or something like that, then I remembered how busy you were during the school year, I can’t even possibly imagine how busy you are during the summer. How proud you must be of your daughter!

    whew, I got tired just reading your post! Lots of fun going on, some of it you even got to enjoy.

    Strange about the book….nice surprise, I’m sure.

    Congrats to you daughter! You must be so proud. I’m behind on blogging too. I think it’s a summer thing.. just busy doing other things I guess.

    Glad you’re back!

    Adrienne must be excited… hopefully something good will come of all this…were the colleges all Florida schools or outstate, too?

    I checked your blog daily and, upon coming up empty-handed, vacillated between disappointment and concern! Glad things are going so well for both the girls and their bibliophile mom! Missed you!

    It is so hard to keep up with blogging in the summer, isn’t it?? Sorry I haven’t been commenting, either–but trust that I am reading! 🙂

    I’ll have to check out that book–sounds good!
