Western Conference Finals!

Good afternoon!

Wow. We won. We really won. I am so excited. NOW it feels like the playoffs. In my humble opinion, the veterans came through last night because they know what the playoff experience is like (fans included). New Orleans is a great team and I expect to see a lot from them next year (I sound like Marv Albert now); however, today is about my SPURS. Oh, yeah. I want to fly to LA tomorrow so badly. I do not see those cards in my future. Maybe when LA gets to SA I can go.

Great day....great memories....great team.

Things change

So much can change in a week! The Spurs are 2-2 with New Orleans now. Tonight is game 5. I am very anxious.

Soon summer will be here. This will be my son's first year in summer camp. In the past years he has been able to be at home and have very minimal childcare. It has always been my personal choice. This year he is growing up and needing the social interaction. He wants to go to a wilderness camp on the lake that offers archery classes. My mom instinct is kicking in big time. I have been lectured by all concerned parties...and by some that I don't want to hear from, too. "he is a boy", "let him be a boy", "he can't be a mommas boy forever"...blah, blah, blah.

Okay. So he is going to camp. Help me embrace this idea.

Perpetually a mother.

Spurs Mourning

Okay, so they are down 2-0 in the second round. I used to like New Orleans and now I am rethinking that. :(

I am hoping they will pull something out of their hat (or wherever they have their heads) and get it going. They go back home for game three and that will help. I don't want round three to be without my boys. And if Kobe wins MVP and a title this year I might jump off a high building.

Even the heavens are in mourning this is dark and dreary outside....rain falling like tears.....

I am pouting.

A Honky Tonk Weekend!

This weekend I went to a country concert. My niece and her best friend came in from San Antonio and had an extra ticket. I wasn't sure what to expect since I don't know any country song that has been recorded since about 1990. But, it was a lot of fun. There was a local band, Leann Rimes, Brooks and Dunn and Kenny Chesney. It was fun to be at a concert. I'll bet it has been ten years or more since I have been to any concert. Lots of photos, lots of fun.

C Y'all!

First Lady Laura Bush

My son was so excited to have a visit at school from First Lady Laura Bush and Jenna Bush. They read their new book, Read All About It. He got a signed copy. He has great stories to tell about secret service and they intense security at his school this week. What a great memory for him.
