take me out 2 da ballgame...twice!

well we made it to the 'Topes ballgame again tonite and we made it to the 8th inning this time....let me back up.....saturday we went to the game and only made it to thru the 2d inning    it was a long hot day    we had gone to the flea market, then home where i took a nap   before the game on saturday, Kyle bought us all a baseball jersey then it was off to Hooters (my first time at Hooters) for chicken wings and a beer   soooo...mom has two drinks of beer   kyle and i had a beer a piece    we get to the game and kyle buys him and i another beer    i drank half of my beer and i got sleepy    kyle since his arrival was asleep by 8pm, along with my mother   well 1st inning was over by 8pm, kyle went to the car and told us to enjoy the game    mom pops up at the end of the 2d inning saying she's tired, the two sips of beer made her sleepy    and i was feeling the 2d beer    goodness we were a bunch of wimps......so tonite, i had only 1 beer before the game and the others had none    so we were able to get thru almost the entire game    kyle and his buddy Gerard were out chasing girls while mom & i watched most the game    we got tired of sitting on our rumps and we were winning so it was time to go    but we had fun    kyle and his buddy started being loud right off the bat and so the people in front of us moved    not too long after that, and more people around us getting loud, the people behind us moved    we were just having fun and Kyle needs to let off that steam from Iraq   i won't go into the details because i don't know them, but i've gotten the impression being over there was getting to him   so anyways, the party poopers moved and we had a blast    it was an exciting game right from the start with a 3run homer in the first    i had to go search for the guys when we were ready to leave, and sure enough they were hangiing out with some girls    who knows what they're doing now, for they dropped us home and left again    as long as he's safe driving, i'm fine    remember he is a good kid who's grown up some more since joining the Army   it's very evident.....i love that kid and am very proud of him!

He's Home!!!

what a day!    well my mother arrived at 9:30am and my son followed suit at 10:30am    he looks really good   a little beefed up from his from scrawny self    he had told me he was workin' out over there   but he says a lot without actually doing it    maybe he's changing    i can definitely tell some maturity in him  a significant increase   he has a girlfriend and showed us her pic    she's a pretty lady   i actually talked to her momentarily twice to let her know where Kyle was en route here    anyways, we got to my place and while my mother was in the bathroom, he pulled me aside and gave me a special hug   i returned it as well    then did it again in the mall    yep he's my son   it still surprises me since i didn't give birth to him   but that's all ok    he wanted to do everything today   go shoppin, go to the movies, have pizza, find a buddy of his plus we had to go grocery shopping since i didn't get it done before he arrived    we did everything but the movie   right now it's 8:30pm and he and my mom are in bed    i'll soon follow    he said he's going out about 10pm tonite  (frankly, i hope he sleeps thru it)    anyways, i'll be taking some pics and posted them asap    i'm just soooo happy he's home for awhile    tomorrow nite we're headin to a baseball game (i think)   much is subject to change until he settles down a bit    he wants him and i to get another identical tattoos    we'll see    we already have like tattoos, so i don't know what he has in mind    anyways, it's great to have him here safe and sound for a little while    i'll talk to him more about Iraq after my mother leaves on wednesday   i don't want her to be worrying anymore than she has to    i do enough for both of us anyways    God i'm elated!!!!

one more night...

well, it's thursday nite    i'm sitting anxiously awaiting the arrival of my son Kyle    not sure if i mentioned it before, but he's coming home on leave from Iraq    he'll be here tomorrow sometime, and so will my mother    she's flying in to see him for a few days    i hope i can sleep tonite    i will soon know    he's to arrive in Dallas, TX about 6am    now honestly i don't know if that's TX time or Iraq's time    so i'm staying awake late for a little bit just in case    and i'll set the alarm to awake about 5am tomorrow    he's anxious to get here    he has an 8-9hr layover at the airport once in Dallas    he want's to drive from there, but i'm thinking he may not have rested much on the flight here    anyways, as long as he makes it safely, i'll be fine    well, think i'll curl up with a book now    need to do something to keep me occupied....
