I'm very thankful that all my siblings and I had a chance to get together last week for the first time in almost a decade, and that we all actually want to do it again, sooner this time. :D

My Sox buried the Yanks last night. Tired today but squashing the Yanks NEVER gets old...
Especially in the Bronx
Love it!!!

I thought for sure Kimbrel was gonna blow it in the bottom of the ninth! I'm not sure how he got out of that jam. Sanchez was so close to hitting a grand slam. I'm pulling for the Sox and Brewers now that my Indians are eliminated.

I was all ready to root for the Brewers (Lord knows I can't stand the Dodgers) until Aguilar had to say F you and F your team after he hit the HR in game 3. Not sure why he felt like he had to say that so I say F you Aguilar and F your team. :whistle

Gonna have to root for Houston to repeat I guess :think

Go Sox!!!

I am thankful for all of you. Y'all make me feel good. Last 24 hours were really fucked up. Yes Griff has hard times amongst all my fun. It all dissipated this afternoon thank God.

But coming and laughing at all your witty silliness always makes me happy.

So thanks friends. Keep posting. Ya just never know when you are picking me or anyone else up!!!!

There was a point in time I'd thought I'd never be married let alone a father. I know it's cliché and all how they grow so fast but I cannot believe my baby girl started high school this year. Half her classes are honors classes as well. Proud of her. But it's true, man does time fly.

DM...you’re speaking my language big time. My oldest is a sophomore. She used to run into my arms the very second I walked through the door from work...I mean the very second. Right up until 8th grade. Now she’s a young lady.

My youngest is nearly 9 and everyday I remind myself to try and play with her, read to her and just generally appreciate her innocence...which I know will be gone in a blink. I wish they could stay Forever Young :bigheart
