Real Life Intrudes

Man, I'm pooped. I spent ALL day in New Haven, with the State games for the Special Olympics, and it was about 90 degrees and humid. Bleh. There was the usual scheduling kerfuffle, like putting 100 meter dash at 12:30 and the running long-jump at 12:45, but somehow we managed to work around all of that.

My oldest son Chris, is mildly autistic, but a heck of an athlete. This is his ninth year of participating in the Special Olympics, and I'm proud as punch. We managed a bronze in the 100 meters, and silver in both the shot putt and the running long-jump. The 4x100 Unified relay is tomorrow, and they usually do pretty well there as well. I have to give a great deal of credit to the organizers, they do a magnificent job, with usually only a few mix-ups.

But gosh, I am tired. All this fresh air and exercise is terrifying.

As usual, I brought along some trades for the kids to read while we were waiting. They may not know who everybody is, but they LOVE the books. And it seems that the more convoluted the story is, the better they like it.

Wow, that's awesome! Congrats! So, how did the relay go? Hope you guys didn't get the hot, muggy weather that WE got today.

Well thank you, Sea. The relay team pulled out a Silver. Chris was the fourth leg, and they had fallen behind a bit, but he really poured it on, and almost caught the front runner.

Alas yes, it was 96 degrees and humid as hell. We came home, had banana splits, and I wallowed in my giant cast-iron claw-footed tub for about an hour.

I hope you guys can lose the tornados for a bit! Sheesh!

Hey, a Silver! That's great! Congrats! :-)

Lose the tornados? Well, it's a nice thought, but we have more storms coming tonight. :-( More tornados, more hail, more floods ... Goody, goody.
