No hitter, tutor and Sin City

Last night the Boston Red Sox' Jon Lester pitched a no-hitter with 9 strike outs. The Red Sox beat Kansas City 7-0. Jon Lester came back to the majors after a fight with cancer. The 24-year-old lefty, who survived cancer to pitch the World Series clincher for the Boston Red Sox last fall, shut down Kansas City Monday night for the first no-hitter in the majors this season. Lester allowed just two baserunners and struck out nine in his first major league complete game. Man, I love this game!

I wrote a check last night to the tutor for $400. I almost choked on it, but this is really a last ditch effort to help our son find his way. He meets with him Tue-Thur and again next week for a total of ten hours before he takes the ASVAB on June 2nd.

I am getting excited about taking my Mom to Vegas. I told her on the phone a couple of days ago that I had already picked out the matching tattoos we're getting so that was one less thing we had to think about. I'm not sure, but I think she thought I was serious - And maybe I am.....

The DH is gone on a job until Friday evening, so I'll be solo for a few days. Working on a baby blanket - woohoo. The adventure never stops around our house! I'm as wild as they get!
