My Timing Needs Help

*Picture courtesy of Kelly at*

Sox win 2-1, Wake goes 8 strong innings, and the whole thing is over in under 2 1/2 hours.

Tomorrow night is Brad Penny. Which means the game could in fact last longer than your average lunar eclipse. So you can see why I wish Tito would have answered all my emails about how it's good to switch it up and let guys pitch on short rest every now and then and flip flopped the two.

Normally, all this wouldn't bother me. However, I've got to get up at 3 am Thursday morning to get to my friend Nicola's house by 4:15 to get to Raleigh by 5 so I can get on a plane to Vermont to see my second family by 6:20.


All so I could save the $45 dollars it would have cost me to leave at 8.

Yes, I'm an idiot.

45 bucks....thats what 2 beers at fenway?

getting closer...Im starting to feel like a caged animal.

I know what you mean, Rich. I'm climbing the walls and I've got another 18 hours or so before I get on the plane.

Beth said...

Don't get yourself freaked out, Ted. The flight will be over quickly - and then the fun begins!

Ted D said...

I'm trying, Beth. Between getting ready to leave, Rakes graduation tonight, having to meet with his speech therapist, plus trying to figure out how I'm going to get up on time is keeping me busy.

But that flight is almost here so I'm feeling that pit in my stomach again...
