FYI, I backdated yesterday’s post because I was way too busy to blog yesterday. Those of you who normally read this on your friends page will need to use the above link to see just how productive we were yesterday.

Kelly and I were up pretty early today, having gone to bed relatively early last night. We had breakfast and watched TV for a little while. I was pleased to see that all the local news stations were setting aside their network bias and leading with stories on the premature death of Tim Russert.

We headed up to Greenbelt lake for a walk, and since it was actually a little cooler today, it was very pleasant out and the walk was great.

We came back home, packed ourselves some lunch and then headed up to Baltimore for the O’s/Pittsburgh game. The game was a lot of fun. In fact, it got exciting at the end when Brian Roberts hit a 2-run homerun with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game and send it into extra innings. The O’s ended up losing in the 10th, but Kelly and I had a great time.

As I said, we packed lunch. We brought with us sandwiches, fruit, water, cookies. And we ate at our seats in the ballpark and it was great. We ate healthy stuff and saved a little money too. vickyandnorm would be proud.

I called Dad to wish him a Happy Father’s day.

Back home and I whipped us up a nice pasta dinner. We had salad and bread, along with ravioli and sauce and it turned out pretty good. After dinner, I hauled half a ton of trash to the front of the house. Kelly loaded up her car with laundry and headed home.

It was a productive weekend and a fun one too. The only downside has been that my legs are incredibly sore from Friday’s workout. But 2-days after are always the worst on the first workout back, so things should be much better tomorrow.
