Ah, it is a big day in baseball today, for the Minnesota Twins.
Central crown comes down to one game
The Twins and White Sox, with identical records for the 162-game season, will play today for the American League Central crown, with the winner advancing to the playoffs.
Wow, what a day, what a day.
Hmm-I think my sis GW and I should have a real wager on this one. How about the LOSER has to wear the WINNER's jersey on the first day of the playoffs?? Yes? (oh, and I'd be happy to supply you with a jersey in time for the game...!!)

Well, if I have to work on a Sunday night, at least I am spending it with my friend Vladimir Horowitz. It doesn't really matter what he is playing, it is all good.
Listening as i am mindlessly entering page view #'s for a web site. Sauces & Potato Recipes-have a new meaning! Or at least kind of a different backdrop.
Horowitz is amazing and inspiring. *smile on my face*

Today is my 30th high school reunion. In Chicago. I am not there, because I just couldn't get there this time. Either I'd have to pay an exorbitant airfare price, or endure 2 8-hour drives over the span of a few days. With a bad back that option is not super appealing.
So in honor of my hs alma mater, I am wearing my school sweatshirt today. We used to be the New Trier East Indians. But years ago, NTE and NTW (Cowboys) have merged into one hs -- New Trier. They are the Trevians. Didn't know what that was myself, but it is like a warrior. Regardless, I couldn't find a sweatshirt with a Trevian on it, and anyway that wouldn't even feel right, because to me we are the Indians.
Ah-my head is in Chicago today, celebrating with my schoolmates...
Thanks Super G., for taking the photo...

Oh yes, I would definitely not qualify to be a blog included in the BlogHer network. They have guidelines about consistency of content, and frequency of posts. Yup, the frequency thing just would drop me right off the coveted blogroll.
OK, any readers out there may have gathered that this could possibly be a "filler" post...
Just not enough time-
- busy with work
- one daughter has sprained ankle which means we all need to pitch in a little more to help
- many other commitments
- driving children to and fro
Woe is me (actually not really).
Putting energy into other stuff...but good stuff at that.
Living life one day at a time.

Alright -- I am a couple days late here...
We have a new high schooler-yes only the hand was provided for photo subject matter. And quite a nice hand it is!!
8th grader-Looking good, "Shorty"!!
3rd grader-Ready for what the day brings, as always!
Oh man, time is flying...and the house is strangely calm and quiet until, oh, about 3pm...
