It’s been one of those wild weeks. I’m not really sure why or how, just seems like drama has made it to new levels on so many fronts. Summer school has been plugging away nicely and to think I only have three classes and in a week and a half will be finished with another class. This weekend has way to much craziness going on, besides being Friday the 13th, tomorrow is my Mom’s birthday. Last year for her 60th birthday she wanted to go to a Cubs game which they won, but kind of ironic a year later that those same Cubbies just completed a sweep of our beloved Bravos.
Cubs game 2007 Birthday
Not as exciting this year, but we are planning to take her to a Greenville Drive game tonight. Yes we have molded her into quite a good Braves fan and a good baseball fan in general! Also most of you probably know that Sunday is Father’s day… so yeah! It’s a two birds with one stone weekend, with some sort of voodoo witch magic thrown into the pot! Wild huh!?
