Trial weekend. Well, Sandy had a trial weekend. I stayed home on Saturday with Bubbles and then she and I joined Sandy and the boys at the trial yesterday. It was fun watching the boys run again and seeing some old friends I haven't seen in awhile.

Saturday Bub and I slept until almost 11! WOW! I felt like a slug from all that so I got busy as soon as my feet hit the floor. Cleaned and did laundry. Then I took Bub for a walk in the neighborhood. When we got back I threw on my workout clothes, kenneled her and headed out for the gym.

I did a good 50 minute workout and then my stretches. Put up Ovarian Cancer flyers in the locker room and then hit the road.

Went up to Colchester to deliver two huge trash bags filled with Husky memorabilia. Old posters, megaphones, media guides for UConn and the Big East and a basketball autographed by Rebecca Lobo and Big Girl. Actually, it was originally autographed by the entire 94-95 championship team, but the other autographs wore off over the years. Now I know that you have to apply a fixative to keep the ink from fading.

I took the bags to Lisa's house and dropped them off with Drew. Lisa's granddaughter is going to be the beneficiary of all this treasure. She is four now I think and already a huge Husky fan.

It felt good to be ridding myself of all this stuff and having it go to a good home. It also felt good to see Drew again and on the way back I swung by Charmine's and visited with her...that was good too.

Then it was go home, shower, change and get out to the Sun for the game. Good game, Sun beat the Mystics in fine fashion. Home again, wrote up my game article and then tried to sleep.

Bad night. My stomach was very upset---reflux to the max---probably from the decaff coffee I had at the game. I won't be doing that again.

I had to OD on Pepcid in order to get the acid under control and then I could sleep. Got up at 5:45 to get ready to hit the road with Sandy and the dogs to go to N. Smithfield for the agility trial.

Bad night again last night and I am getting sick of this. Don't know why the bowels are in an uproar again...maybe the reflux, maybe something else, but I have to get this back under control. I hate the multiple trips to the can all night long...losing so much sleep.

Looks like we are going to have great weather next weekend for Maria, Bob and Wini's trip to our house. YAY! We will be having Father's Day early here and I can't wait. It's going to get very very hot mid week and I'm glad I have no obligations during the day on those days. I can sit in the AC and stay cool.

Think I'll hit the gym again tomorrow. I felt so good after my workout Saturday...the best I've felt in a loooooong time. Hoping to reproduce that feeling.

I'm enjoying the Sarah Palin Comedy Road Show. That trip to the Old North Church was a winner. Looking forward to future stops and her take on history. It's all so entertaining. She's earning every penny she's getting for this trip. Who is paying for it I wonder. She has to be getting paid, she doesn't do anything for free.

Life is good, Sox are on a roll, I have my laptop back, the pups are all lovey-dovey and I'm going to get to spend time with the majority of my family this week.
