A lazy weekend ahead of us, well, me anyway. Alicia and I have hair appointments this afternoon, but otherwise, I'm planning on writing, reading, and relaxing for the most part. I've been fighting some stomach bug all week, though this morning seems to be a bit better, so hopefully I'm on the outside end of that.

Craig and Alicia, on the other hand, are spending the weekend in construction. He wants to build a platform/ladder combo for the pool, because frankly, climbing ladders scares the crap out of me. I'm clumsy on my best day, and getting out with wet feet on the narrow risers for the ladder we have? I'm surprised I haven't slipped yet and broken my neck.

The kids' first week of school went well. Alicia's started out tryouts for the school softball team, and the coach asked to talk to me yesterday. Alicia has been playing fairly well over the past few years, but the girls that are *really* serious about softball are involved in what's called travel ball year 'round. It's an intense program, a real time suck, and Alicia has specifically chosen not to get involved because it would mean giving up chorus and band, which she doesn't want to do. So she's in this awkward place where she's better than the average girl, but not quite up to the same speed as the travel girls. Her coach wanted to talk to me about her options, which we already knew. She's still in the running for the team, but who knows what will happen. I guess we'll see how it all pans out at the end of next week.
