Week of April 14

Hey ladies! How's it going??? Days are dragging here. Not because it's not beautiful weather, but allergies are killing us all. Bleh. Not fun.

Still haven't heard a report on my car yet. Been at the collision center since Monday morning. I'm getting kinda scared! I know they're tearing it apart and checking EVERYTHING, but I just want an ETA on when I'll get it back. The rental they gave me is nice and all, but I want my car! Is it strange that I'm attached?? Smile

We're in baseball craziness right now. We have 5 makeup games to get in! They're supposed to play Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but it looks like they'll be rained out AGAIN on Friday. Not a good season. Our team isn't all that great either (we haven't won a game yet!), so that makes it even worse. This team mom is not motivated this year! Alyssa has competition this weekend too. Let's pray she doesn't get sick again! My mom is coming with us this weekend, and since we have to drive through construction, we're making it a girl's weekend and staying out there. There are perks to having Marriott points! Smile

Later taters! Smile

OMG so Boston has become a war zone. The city is shut down. No work. No transportation. People are to stay inside with doors locked and not open them to anyone. And what idiot terrorist robs a 7 eleven after planting 2 bombs? Shouldn't they be smart enough to lay low? They should have left the city. Not that I'm not glad one is dead but they are not very smart. I hope they catch the white hat guy soon. Enough already. He is actually throwing grenades! And why Russia? I didn't know they still had beef with us. There are so many countries these guys could hale from and the last place I would have thought is Russia. Poor Boston.

I am so glad we are 20 minutes outside of the city. Hopefully he stays away from the burbs.

We are fine but we won't be playing outside today since they seem to have lost sight of the guy. I just feel like if he carjacked someone else he could drive anywhere and I don't think it's a good idea to have all these kids outside with this guy around the corner. 20 minutes away isn't far enough.

Been thinking about you Sam! I hope they get this guy soon. I don't think these guys thought the police would be on to them this fast. Not so intelligent to rob a store, but they were obviously desperate for money....maybe someone put them up to this and promised a big payday, then didn't come through? Who knows, I just want to see it over with already!

They are from an area in Russia that is Islamic. I have a feeling they are involved with Islamic extreme-ists. He posted about his world being Islam (which isn't violent) and the area he is from has terror connections. It would explain why 2 men from Russia planted bombs in the US.

What part are you guys in?? Were you guys shut down? Or just stayed in by choice?

No we are about 20 minutes North of Boston. He did make it to Watertown just outside of Boston. He drove a little bit then pulled off and hid in a boat. So the shut down didn't stop him either. Thank goodness he was unable to drive far. He was hurt in the gun battle overnight and they think he couldnt drive farther. A neighbor saw blood near the boat and a ladder that wasn't there earlier and called it in. They talked him out but not before he exchanged more gunfire. We just watched the officers cheering and then saw an ambulance drive off.
