As Life Goes On

I became an official unemployed yesterday as I signed up for unemployment. It wasn’t a big hassle, for the most part, and I’ll bring home only a portion of my previous salary but well get by. The funny part is that my wife signed up at the same time. She is a bus driver for the school district and became eligible for unemployment after the last day of school. Next thing we have to do is sign up for food stamps.

We hit the graduation party circuit last weekend as our friends’ children progress into the world adulthood and responsibility. I think we have a few more this weekend but that’s about it thank god. I enjoy the company but I don’t really want to spend the money on graduation gifts at this time.


The girls both had good games on Saturday as I spent about 5 hours standing in the hot sun. I was quite red by the time we were done but I’m OK with that overall. Spending time coaching the kids is well worth a little sun.

I played Friday night and had a lot of fun. We won in extra innings as it was tied 0-0 after 7 innings. In the top of the eighth, I came to the plate with one out and runners on 2nd and 3rd and ripped a double through the third baseman to put us up 3-0 and on the road to a 3-2 victory. It was a great game as our opponent came back strong in their half of the inning but in the end, we overcame.


I haven’t played much lately but have continued to have luck in my SNGs. I have cashed in 4 of 5 since my last posting but no wins. I also cashed in an MTT on Party Saturday night but it wasn’t for a big score. All in all, I need to play about 7 more SNGs to finish the first bonus I’ve chased and will come out ahead no matter what so all is good.

Hang in there--we're pulling for you.

I echo cc's sentiments... congrats on the cashing, better than bubbling out and not taking anything.
