Tennis Super Stars

Many of you know that I've taken up tennis thanks to much prodding from my good friend, Meredith. The nudging started before we even moved here but as soon as we set foot in California she began a nonstop blitz campaign that eventually had me playing in a competitive match after only one tennis practice. Needless to say I'm hooked and by hooked I'll give you this visual: me, in bed at midnight, the lights low while I furiously read through Tennis for Dummies. I'm sure it's not the romantic scene H was looking for, but I wore two pairs of socks the next day at practice like the book suggested for extra support and I felt like a super star!! Today was our usual Wednesday match and although we lost, I can honestly say that we held our own and I had a great time getting a whoppin' by women twice and three times my age. A few courts down Meredith was kickin' butt and taking names. Her shots at the net were amazing and everyone enjoyed watching her quick returns. She is truly a tennis super star and I can't wait for the day we can play together on equal footing.
G has been a trooper these past few days. He's had horrible allergies and just so congested and sneezey. Today he woke up from his nap to say that his ear hurt and I knew he must have an infection. Luckily our pediatric office is terrific and I brought him in right away. These are the times as a parent when you hate to be right. He has a raging ear infection and it's probably been around for quite a few days. It just goes to show what a great boy he is and how he can play and have fun and still manage to smile through the pain. We should all have such a good attitude.
Needless to say the night is coming to a close with hots baths, medications and the filling of 'ol faithful Vicks humidifier. I look forward to watching American Idol. I know some people have expressed that it's cruel and unusual punishment and that it's degrading. Personally, every person in American has seen the show, yet tens of thousands show up to willingly be humiliated on national television. I don't get it. I just know that I laugh until I'm in tears on most nights during auditions...
