Sangria Sunday

sunday funday is in full effect here in houston.  spring has sprung, as it were.  and we're all the happier for it, believe me.  no more sweaters, turtle necks, jackets, scarves, cute boots.  nope. say hello to shorts, tees, cute sandals and spring dresses.  at least until our bipolar friend aka mother nature, spoils our moment again.

besides the spectacular weather, i'm also giddy with excitement because the countdown to the baseball season and another astros opening day, is but a mere two days away.  longtime followers of my blog will recognize my excitement but for my newest readers, i will tell you that i am a huge baseball fan.  in particular, a huge astros fan.  i have been since i was probably old enough to walk, thanks to my daddy.  no fair weather fan here, that's for sure.  win or lose, suck or not, stadium almost empty or not, i'm still a fan. most people (ok my friends) look at me with this look of "you must be crazy!" or give me a "aww, i'm sorry" look when they see me at the ballpark on opening day. i just ignore them.  poor souls.

it's become a tradition for me and my friend michelle to attend the home opener and partake in the street festival that takes place prior to the game.  so yeah, i'm excited.  i had already scheduled the day off to take care of some other business so the game will be the icing on the cake that day.  all i have left to say is, "play ball!"  

in other news, i've recently decided to clean house, so to speak, with regard to the "dead weights" in my life.
not to sound harsh, but in reality, some of these people are only in my life to take up space and precious air. i don't need negativity or stupidity in my life right now, or ever.   i need stability, support, encouragement and loyalty.  i give the same.  and while i realize no one is ever going to get the same return as what they put out, these certain individuals who were privvy to my life, were only in  it to see what was in it for them.  and that's it. well, no more doormat, no more ms, nice guy.  like a fairy godmother, i've zapped the wand and said "poof be gone!"  and now they are.  and life is good.

well bloggies, it's sunday afternoon, a little too much sangria for me, i will regret this post tomorrow i'm sure. :

hope you're enjoying your day in your little corner of the world.

come back, i'll even be sober. heh. :)

be good.

I wouldn't regret this post (you said you'd regret it tomorrow...). I am not into baseball, but I appreciate your enthusiasm. As for getting rid of toxic people.... hallelujah! They are energy suckers. And the LAST THING you need is someone sucking up all of your energy. I am happy for you.... so glad you are making positive changes!!!

I hope Bo Porter gets them a few more wins this year... Not enough to pass my A's, y'understand... but I do know how much it sucks to be the doormat all the time, and I think Bo's a decent manager.

Robin- Meh, I didn't regret it today. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was. Toxic people are indeed, energy suckers. Postivity in my life is all that I need. :)

CW- So do I friend, so do I! And we'll see about your A's. :) said...

Doesn't it feel good to clean house? Yay for you! And "Go Astros!" That one's for you too, since I have no clue or investment. I'm now an Astros fan. =)

Be well, friend.

Cleaning house rocks! It can be tough, but definitely worth it. I wish I could be free of winter clothes. We are only free of them about 6 weeks per year! That's why I must head back to Palm Springs asap!

Yvonne said...

Robyn- Yes, a "clean" house is a healthy house! And glad I have a new recruit! GO ASTROS!

YRJ- I don't know how all of those people still dealing with cold/snowy weather do it. I would have gone postal by now!
