20190319 - Up in the am and dropped J off at school on the way in to work. Not getting things done this morning as my office seems to have a revolving door on it this morning... I got a lot of things lined up and in order and scheduled to keep the ball rolling. Headed over to the new office where I had a chat with CB, very odd discussion... Headed home to see L for only a minute and then out the door to pick up an auction win at a new place in Gahanna and then on to Watershed Distillery to meet Eric for dinner. Eric and I worked together at DecisionOne and he was the host for D&I's trip to Denver for D's 18th bday. He was in town for a sales pitch and called me up. MANY years ago we took a tour of this distillery when it was 2 guy and their aunt and uncle that just started. NOW this place is a gourmet restaurant. We talked and ate amazing food and had good bourbon until late. Eric was staying by the airport so I dropped him off on the way home. Home and chatted with LJ&G a little bit. Got a call from a guy that runs a local competitive baseball team, the Columbus Braves, looking for D. He told me Coach Shade recommended D...  I let D know and talked to him a little bit before heading to bed where I fell alseep sitting up a couple of times before getting my second wind and getting some things done until 2am.

20180316 - UP way to early for a Saturday... J&I followed out normal routine, but this time I went into the school with him for the annual Tag Day. J had found a ride so I got to hang out in the library and help collect and process the $ coming in. We started at 7:30 and by 12:30 the Coach, 140 parent drivers and 500 student athletes had collected over $22,000! our best year ever! After the event closed down and cleaned up I headed home, pretty exhausted. L ran to her school to get some things done, J was on Xbox and I hit the couch to rest a bit, after I get the notes from Tag Day entered into a Lessons Learned sheet. I was still entering things = no rest, by the time L got home and she wanted to run down to see the baseball game at Wilmington. So we jumped in the car and L drove so I could get some more things done, I worked until we go to the field...  Out to watch D's game and IT WAS FREEZING & WINDY!!! D didn't play and the boys got beat. We headed out to one restaurant but didn't want to wait 45min-1hr so ended up at BurgerKing for dinner. I drove home, pretty tired and we swung by the McClains to hang out and relax a bit. Home not too late and stayed up a bit longer to get a survey pushed out to the Tag Day drivers. before collapsing.

Home, got L, said goodbye to J and L&I headed SE to Ohio University to watch D play baseball. D didn't play the first game and didn't start the 2nd, but he got in in the 3rd inning and did his job. I have to leave shortly after he got put in to go pick up pizzas as another family and us were feeding the team after the game. I got the pizzas and brought them back to the field and L and Gina met me in the parking lot and we stuffed bags with granola bars, chips, apples/oranges and I put a potato in one of the bags in place of fruit ;-) When we finished we went back to watch the rest of the game. When the 2nd game ended we rushed out of the stadium to find the bus and set up. We got there just in time, the boys showed up and filed past to pick up their pizzas, bag and drink and get on the big charter bus to head to VA for a couple days and a couple more games. They were appreciative but down as they lost both games today... L&I headed to the Union Diner and had a nice dinner. We came out and it was pouring which made for a hard to see stressful 1.5 hour drive home. Once back in town we swung by the McClains to pick up G & Brady for a sleep over. Home, Exhausted, L ran J to a friends for a sleep over.
