Go Celtics!!

So what have I been up to lately? Well I'll tell you...there have been lots of things going on. One of the most interesting developments is my new-found "love" of basketball. My friend John and I have been watching the NBA finals (he is a Celtics fan) and I've discovered that it is a pretty fun thing to do, too. I think it's because the game is so fast-moving as compared to other sports.....or maybe it's because the Celtics are green and green is my favorite color. Hmmm...... Anyways, I'm even learning some of the rules of the game. I even have a favorite player -- Kendrick Perkins #43. Yeah he's like 6'11 and totally DOMINATES the court...well, when he's not being fouled by the other team, that is. I also like Ray Allen. He exudes this amazing amount of confidence and almost all of his shots go in. Soooo....there's my bit about basketball.

On Thursday, I had a huge tailgate party to kick off the first game of the playoffs. It was SWEET!!! I grilled chicken and burgers and hotdogs. Tiffany made pasta salad, too. There were a whole bunch of people there, and we had such a good time!! One of my co-workers, Alan, and his wife, Michelle, came and brought their two little boys...but I can't remember their names right now for some reason, but they were SOOOO cute!!!

So what else has been going on? Well I've been keeping pretty busy. John and Ben and Tiffany and I hang out a lot. We went to see Iron Man a couple of weeks ago, and that was really fun.

Work is going ok. It's not the best job in the world, but it's better than not having a job at all, and besides that it's where the Lord wants me to be right I'm working on contentment.

Well, it's time for me to get to work. Have a great day. I'll try and to better about getting things updated here.

Yay for a new Celtics fan! This is a good time to jump in with the big Lakers/Celtics "old days" rivalry. We are Celtics fans too. Dan from growing up in CT and me by marriage. :-) And a Finals kickoff party with yummy food -- that's even better!

Glad to see a post from you.

Hey, glad to hear things are going well with you! And basketball!? Really? Sounds like you're enjoying it, though, and that's great!

Wow...I didn't know this post would evoke so many responses so quickly....LOL!!

Yes (believe it or not) I am actually enjoying the playoffs. At first, admittedly, I was only watching them because John is in to it...but I actually have really been enjoying the games. The next one is Tuesday...oh la!!!
