Lots to catch up on....

So, lots has happened.  Mason has been released to "full duty" as long as he feels well.  I have been to released to want what I want which is typical, yet not understandable.  Sweetly, he wears a batter helmet when he is on base.....for me.  And Nolan, well, Nolan is just sad.  Let me explain.....

Mason is doing great, but sometimes, he is overwhelmed.  This is the tricky part.  He wants to do Baseball, Track, and everything in between.....really?!?!?!  You have a concussion.  While predicted it was mild, still a concussion. At the Jamboree on Saturday, Mason was playing Catcher, and he got hurt.  Because I am who I am, I wasn't paying attention when he got hurt.  All the guys were laughing and I was like, "Did he hit his head?!?!?!?"  One of Mason's best friend's Dad's said, "Ang, It was the other head."  PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!!  I must have looked like a real bitch, but he is my boy and Grant already decided that he could play outfield without a helmet.  I guess I have to relax, but how can you.  I am the mama.

Nolan had is last game with the buddies he has been playing with forever.  I/we were sad but the age range is changing this year and there is no guarantee he would be with them anyway.  Nolan is a February baby and everyone else is  the year before.  He was so sad on the way home.  "This is the year that changed everything."  I was like, "Wha?!??!  You will see him in tournaments, other play etc.  We cannot help the field of play."  "Really?!?!?!  Well, I guess I will see him in a year...."  I was like, "Well, you are going to see Owen in August.  Try not to be such a downer!"  We can see Rayden.  OMG.  It is not like his is moving away....what the heck?!?!?!  Since then, he has been picked for the 2007 A team.  He is so excited he agreed to summer tournament and practices....he has NEVER done that.  I am happy for for him and hope it is all that he wanted.

So, this is real life.  The other part is PTA, figuring our that part.....I REFUSE to break the rules yet I do not want it to die.  Tomorrow my PTA for Neely meets to discuss next year.  Interesting is all I can say....

Grant and I had a sit down and I said, "I do not want to get a job.  Our lives would just be chaos."  "Okay.  Ang, we will figure this out.", Grant said.  "I can live on less.  I have lived on nothing.  Freezer is full.  We will be okay.", I said,.    HOWEVER, it was nice to have people think I was going back to work and interested in me.  I was worth something.  I was good, but I have to focus on my family.  I always knew this was my duty.  When I was engaged to Grant I said, "You are the last of six.  I am the only Granddaughter, Niece, and Daughter.  I can't leave anywhere but a nonstop fight from our home."  He was okay with that.  Grant.....the only guy I have ever known to be able to get me through all this crap.  Funny thing is that a lot of people look at the family when it comes to marriage.  Grant....well, on the outside has not much to offer, but they love me....and lately, I think more than him.  Especially since I was there for the 90th!!!!!    hehehehehe.  When we were married our Pastor said, "These two have NOTHING in common but values."  As I cry, I think, OMG, is that all we needed?!?!  Infertility, Cancer, Aging Parents, oh yeah and Nolan......I love him, but wha?!?!?!?!

And then there are my parents....so, I take care of them every week.  We plot and plan for the next week so that they can comfortably stay in their house.  We have made GREAT strides since September.  Things are organized, Mom is doing amazing, Dad is accepting of his situation, and I get lunch.  However.......I love my parents, but really their problems are so, well minor, compared to others.  I walked in the other day and they were having a fight about a hot water facet.  "Did you get the serial number!?!?!?!?!"  I was rolling my eyes like, "Wha?" My parents have worked hard all of their lives to have an easy retirement.   I am not sure they know what that looks like.....cause they have it.......WHATEVER!!!!!

Anyhoo, I am tired, laundry is going and I have a Board Meeting tomorrow that I have to prepare for.  Here is to life......with cancer....with aging parents....with a business that is sometime vulnerable, and with us.  We got this.  Happy Sunday.

Love, Ang
