Big Papi Delivers

What a great night for a ball game. The weather was clear and cool, the game, despite some problems with the starting pitcher, was interesting. And Big Papi, David Ortiz, hit a walk off 2 run home run in the bottom of the 9th to end with a Red Sox win. I scored the game diligently, and T and I enjoyed ourselves immensely for a few hours. I love baseball. I love Fenway Park. And I love it when we win! (Especially when the Yankees have won elsewhere. Don't want to lose any more ground before they come to town this weekend.)

I decided to not go to temple today. Instead, I'm hanging out with my friend, and fellow Jew, N. We are thinking of going to the beach. She says that, often, that's what secular Jews in Israel do for the holiday. So we are going to do that. Unless we change our plans.

I did end up applying at the coffee shop yesterday. I spoke to the manager, and I thought it went well. I'm hopeful that she'll call for a more formal interview. I also stopped by the yarn store nearby and applied there as well. The manager said that he will assess if he needs any new people at the end of the month, and will be in touch if he does.

I have some baking/cooking/preparing to do before N shows up. Still feeling sad about all the pregnancies, but I've stopped crying (mostly). I'm glad she's coming over so I don't have to spend the day alone. What we do isn't as important as the fact that we're simply hanging out and doing something together. Keeping busy and having company is so important.

It sounds like you had a GREAT time! Enjoy your holiday. The office I work in is half empty today (hee hee) leaving me free to surf the web (not that I would being the diligent worker bee).

I know when I was in Starbucks the other week treating myself to a cafe mocha, I saw that they offer a 401K, health plan, vacation time, etc. I even commented to Sweetness and said that it might be some extra money if I choose to be a SAHM (& a way to get out). Good luck!

I am glad that you found some joy (GO SOX!) and that you are spending time with your friend. I have found that the crying is good for releasing emotions for a while but then you have to make sure that you don't end up isolated in your home.

You and I could certainly spend some time together, though I honestly can't promise you that I won't break down myself. You and I are feeling similarly about our situations lately.

Those places sound like great places for you to work. I wish you luck with them.
