I have time!

It's been so long since I've had a long stretch time to just do whatever. I love time, I wish I had more of it.
My laundry is done. My kids are playing with play-doh. My shopping is mostly done. I have no lesson for tomorrow. I have pictures I can work on, but I'm taking the day off of working on them. I have no kid to run around to sporting events, or meetings, or appointments.
I've been visiting blogs of people I know, who unfortunately haven't seen much of me in the last few months. It's so fun to catch up on them and what they are doing. Leaving a comment to let them know I haven't completely fallen off the face of the earth :)

Jake had wrestling last night up at North Branch. Often schools don't have kids in his weight class, but last night they did, and he was a dirty fighter. The referee wasn't calling fouls on the North Branch kids at all. This kid wound his fist back and clocked Jake right in the mouth, splitting his lip open and making the side of his face throb in pain. He thought he might have even loosened a tooth. Jake stepped back and put his hands up. The ref asked him what was going on and Jake touched his mouth and showed the ref the blood. The ref asked him what happened and Jake told him the guy punched him. The ref just sent him to get the bleeding stopped, but never called the kid on it. When Jake went back into the ring the kid kept working Jake's face over and all the ref would do was say, "watch your hands!". Jake was pretty mad when he got home last night, but he was honorable and didn't get back at the kid, and played by the rules. He's such a great kid.

I love revenge too much.

Yay for time! I love when you visit my blog. :D

Sorry about Jake, I hate when the refs don't do their job. I know they can't catch everything, but something like that, come on!

Do you plan to throw Oh Henry Bars at him as revenge? ;)

Poor Jake he actually gets a chance and the kid fights dirty! What a horrible ref! Good for him playing straight. I'm with you though...I like revenge to much. Hehe


PS Love the new backround.
