I wanted to go down for the game but had to take kids to various soccer practices and dance lessons. I'll probably hit the Disch this weekend for at least one game against the Pokes.
Been there, done that. Takes up a large part of ones life for what seems like forever but it ends all too soon. And I can't help thinking how money is tied in there too. When kids are small there's never enough time OR money because even if there's a lot coming in, there's a lot going out too. It's all earmarked.
Then all of a sudden, the kids are grown or at least somewhat independent. You still have expenses but there are fewer mouths to feed and it seems like more money's coming in than ever before. You have time and money and your hands and you think, "Where was all this time and money when I could've used it."
Crazy how life takes a person or a couple from one stage in life to another. Some last for decades but not indefinitely.
I'd love to get down to see the Horns take on the Cowboys. I'd love to get down to the Saturday game so I can see them in their stunning creams instead of the Friday whites or Sunday pinstripes. But lord only knows what I'll be doing Saturday. I could be laying tile or building a pergola.
If I can reach a satisfying level of production early and feel justified in knocking off, I'll text you Junior. If we happen to be there at the same time, I'll buy you a beer.
It could happen. I'd say there's a good 30 to 40% chance.
