Record: 1 and 0

It wasn't a real pretty win... but we won! I'm really proud of the girls. They played hard... well as hard as they could. The pitching (for both teams) was quite terrible so we had mostly walks the whole game! We played our 2 hour time limit and only played 5 innings! Ha! Gotta love JV sports! The score was 14-13. GO CUPERTINO! The sun has been shining which always makes the season more fun. Now if only my plate wasn't so full with so many different things!

Life has been crazy busy lately. This week was non-stop and I'm so happy it's the weekend AND we have all next week OFF! I'm really looking forward to some R&R, catching up on my Oprah shows, working-out and just enjoying peace and quiet!! School is now is full swing... I'm finishing my masters at NDNU so I have two classes this semester and then just one final one next fall. Work has been really hectic because we are talking full fledge about the programs for next year. It looks like there are going to be a lot of changes, which I'll go into details later as things are still up in the air. It's good things though and I'm really looking forward to it!
I'm also coaching Softball! I coached a few years ago and by the end of the season I said I'd never do it again.... well, here I am! It's going okay so far. There are some girls out there that should NEVER be playing any sport that includes a small hard ball... but they are learning slowly! Our first game is in a week from next Tuesday so I'm starting to feel the crunch to get the girls up to par.
Valentine's day was lovely with Geoff. We decided no gifts (just dinner) since we have a lot of expenses coming up (travel). I got home from softball practice that evening and my sweet boyfriend had all of our candles lit, a lovely appetizer spread and wine. It was perfect! That night we went out to dinner at a local sushi restaurant... yummy! I'm so lucky to have Geoff in my life... he's #1 :-)
Now it's finally time to take some deep breaths! Well, at least until class and practice!

Happy birthday mama Abo!

Last weekend Geoff, Michelle (sis), Shawn (her BF) and I flew to Seattle to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday! We had a fantastic weekend! Mom had no idea that dad had organized a party for her on Friday night at the Crow restaurant in Queen Anne. I actually was a little worried she was going to pass out when she saw us all there... but she managed, after many tears, to keep herself composed! We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with family and seeing my friends. The weather was decent (not too rainy) and the family time was just perfect. Sunday morning Piper and JJ prepared a lovely (5 course!) brunch and we spent the morning celebrating mom!

We wrote a song to sing to mom to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine." She cried the whole time!

With the "boys" from high school! It's always so great to see them.
