Go Phillies!

Today we slept in, and then went out for lunch at Burgh’s Pizza and Wings. While the food was fine, the service was painfully slow. It took us about 1hr 40 minutes for lunch. That’s pathetic. And it wasn’t even busy, and we didn’t order anything complicated.

After lunch, we took a quick stop at a local park so the kids could play on the playground, but it was very hot, so we didn’t stay long.

This evening, we went to the Phillies vs Pirates baseball game. We bought the tickets on Stub Hub because there was Standing Room Only available at the box office. Our seats were about 2/3rd of the way from 1st bast to the foul pole, 13 rows from the field. Very nice seats. Normally priced $26 before surcharges, we paid almost $50 after surcharges. I’m not sure, but I think the same seats at a Phillies home game would have been about the same price ($45 before surcharges). The Phillies had lost the first two games of the series. Both games were very low scoring. Tonight was a different story. The Phillies started scoring right off the bat, and won 12-4!! I would say there were more Phillies fans in the audience than Pirates fans. After the game, there was a pretty decent fireworks show, too.

Tonight is our last night of our vacation. Tomorrow we head back home. Back to the cat that pees where it shouldn’t, the refrigerator that runs too cold and has a broken water line to the ice maker, the broken faucet on the kitchen sink, the leaky drain on the kitchen sink, the messy basement that still isn’t finished, the broken window on the car, and all kinds of other things that are on my long list of things to do. I can’t wait to get home. [sarcasm]

    Thanks for all the postings. It was a nice way to follow things going on. Wishing you a safe return home to reality. but realize that all the ‘Honey Do’ things are really minor irritations in the overall picture of how wonderful your family is and how great your life is.
