Monday Musings

It’s June. How did that happen? Why is June the season for weddings? You know, that whole June bride thing. I’m sure I know the mythology behind it but it’s buried in the London fog that is my brain currentl and I don’t have time to fall down that particular rabbit hole. Anybody else know off the top of your collective heads?

So, stuff happened. The Kids’ Jeep is toast and while both Baseball Boy and Stormy are out of school, stuff is still going on. BB teaches a summer “travel” class on Oklahoma History. And there are sports camps–soccer, baseball, and softball to coach and attend–for Stormy. He’s also doing a 5-week golf clinic where he goes for an hour or so on Thursday evenings for instruction and play time. Needless to say, which Only’s job, being a one-vehicle family is not an option. There’s little to no trade-in value on the Jeep at because…toast. So, for the time being, they have Drover, my Highlander. Granted, I don’t get out and about much and I can drive LG’s truck but I don’t like to drive LG’s truck. I’m not familiar with the controls, it’s big, and it’s not…mine. 🙄 I know, I know. I’m tempted to make him get up early this morning to take me for my Wallyworld run. We’ll see.

Softball is a big thing here. The NCAA Women’s College World Series has been held in OKC for gosh…almost 30 years now. Or longer. I remember taking Only when she was a kid to watch the “Big Girls” play. Regular readers are aware that both O-schools (OU and OSU) are in the 8-team series. Both are undeated at the top of their respective brackets in the semi-finals. They play today–OU against UCLA and OSU against Texas–and if each wins, they face-off in the finals, starting Wednesday. FYI, as they are both undefeated, the other teams have to beat them twice in back-to-back games. That’s HARD to do in softball. There’s been some awesome ball played so far! There’s also baseball, but I haven’t been paying that close of attention. Cards and Cubs played a 5-game series. They split the series 3-2, with the last two games being won by the Cards in extra innings. Whew! OSU CowBOYS got beat in the second game and played yesterday in the loser’s bracket. The final score was 29-17. Yes, you read that right, even though it’s more a football score than one for baseball. The Pokes had to turn around to play Arkansas, in the winner’s bracket. If I’m not asleep, I’ll come back and update if they moved to the final game in their region played today or went home, which is hard to do because the regional is at their home field.

We’ve had rain, sunshine, cool temps, humid temps, rain, and cool, humid temps. Ah, gotta love the weather in Oklahoma. It’s never boring.

I need to stop listening to other author’s words and write me own. That said, it’s been 3 years since I last did a marathon of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series. New book is coming out later this summer and I’m on the short list for a library hold on an unrelated book. I can insert a book into the line up and not lose track of the longer series. Plus, I’ll admit it’s a bit of a comfort read for me. Win-win all around.

Speaking of, I did manage to do a little writing of new words. And a little addition of new words in revisions. Not sure why I’ve stalled out on this last book of the Moonstruck Wolf re-release series. I gotta fix that. Stupid brain. Coffee’s not helping. I gotta get outta my head. And….and now I have an earworm. Thank you, brain. Here, I’ll share the goodness. Hey. Hey. You. You. Get off of my cloud! How was your week and and weekend? Anything to look forward to?

  1. Sorry I missed this post yesterday. I was in a funk. I’m still pretty funky, but I’m muddling through. Got down, got funky. And not in a good way, LOL. (At least my sense of humor isn’t broken. Weird, but not broken.)

    No clue why June is the month for weddings. It’s probably weather related – June is snow-free for most everyone and it’s not super hot yet either. Bummer about the kids’ Jeep. And bummer that they have to be using your car. Yay for baseball and softball – win or lose, it’s something to watch and root for. Yay for cooler temps, although a little boring would be okay. Yay for new words, however few they may be. And yes, we need to get out of our own heads and out of our own ways and get back to work.

    As for the weekend, it was there. The week ahead? No clue. Hang in there. :hugs:

Got something to say?
