Alright, I’m not one to normally make excuses, but I’ve had a really tough time keeping up the last couple of weeks. Between last weekend running right into Christmas, and shaking in a very busy time for me at work has left me running from one place to the next. I didn’t finish my shopping until late Wed. night, and we’ve spent most of the last two days away from home.
I was hoping to catch up on some things today (starting a nice year end piece, along with finishing my D.C. column for the Hardball Times), but now my wife isn’t feeling well, so I’ve had to take care of the little man all day, which is fun because he has a bunch of new toys, but also tiring and time consuming. He just went down for a nap, so this is my semi-daily diatribe.
Next weekend doesn’t look like it’s going to be much better as we’re busy every day from Friday through Sunday. I did make out nicely at Christmas with regard to my board game collection, getting both Axis and Allies and Axis and Allies – D-Day, along with Memoir ’44. I also got a couple of new additions to my Advanced Squad Leader collection as well.
Fortunately, little is going on. The headline story on Yahoo is about Olympic Stadium being gutted. Jason Varitek re-signed with the Red Sox, and the Tigers have signed nobody.
I’m playing in the Superbowl of my fantasy football league. The big game for both of us is the Pats/Jets game. He has Curtis Martin, and I’ll have Corey Dillon and Tom Brady. Go Pats.
