Game night

Today was Astros Day, and as Big Computer employees we got to buy tickets at half price, so Gabe and I left the girls with Nanna and went to see the Astros play the S.F. Giants. We sat in the bullpen area, they were good seats. It was a nice night out, the sky was pretty and it wasn't too hot. People got goofy and started doing the wave and soon the whole place was doing it. Every time Barry Bonds came at bat, you could hear the loud booing. It was fun being at the game. In the bottom of the ninth they were tied and we were tired, so we left early to avoid the big crowd. We drove back home and listened to the rest of the game on the radio. Astros lost. Oh well. I'm still happy.

This has been a very busy week at work. I had time to meet Amanda for lunch on Wednesday, though. That was good. We went to the usual hangout, Hickory Hollow. Amanda had just had a root canal done the day before, but she still wanted to come and have lunch. I was touched. And she was doing pretty well too, you would not know unless she told you.

My weekend will be pretty busy with housework. Paula's birthday is coming up on the 28th, and to celebrate she's inviting some friends for a sleepover on Saturday, May 26th. So I have to spend the weekend cleaning as much as I can to get the house in shape for the kids coming.

That's it for now. Tomorrow I have lunch with my friends from work, ex-coworkers from the Latin America group. We keep in touch and are trying to have lunch once in a while.
