Do You Pick Your Feet In Poughkeepsie?

Popeye Doyle - The French Connection

It seems as though we’ve again neglected this site for months (five, to be exact) but we just find ourselves busy with this, that, and the other thing. Honestly, how interesting can our everyday lives be to the people that come here? It seems as though life is very routine these days; I go to work Monday through Friday, Tiffany goes in for an evening or two at the hospital each week, Jakob has school on weekdays, and Lea goes along for the ride.

Does that mean that it’s boring? Far from it! What entertains us are the little things with which the kids surprise us nearly everyday. One day, Jakob counts to 30; another day, Lea sings her ABCs. One day, the kids dress themselves without our helps; another day, they’re chasing after each other on the playground, laughing and giggling the whole time.

Jakob turns five at the end of the week and he’s already enjoying the idea of being five. Remember being five? I don’t but maybe it would be nice to be five again, even for a day.

Now for the obligatory Red Sox news bite: Boston is back on the field preparing for Opening Day tomorrow afternoon at Fenway Park. It’s been an interesting start this season for the local nine; they traveled to Japan for two games against the Athletics to open the regular season, then returned a week later to play two more in Oakland. Next, they spent the weekend in Toronto, where they got swept. Now the Sox will have a chance to spend 13 of their next 17 games within the friendly confines of Fenway. Plus, prior to tomorrow’s action, the Sox will hold a championship ring ceremony and raise the 2007 World Series winning pennant, so that will be fun to watch.

Take care, everyone!
