Vacation Day

The husband and I both took a vacation day and met up with Dave and Zach for an afternoon of spring training baseball! Tony snagged us some great seats (lower box section 7, row 8) for the Athletics v Mariners game. It’s my second time to this ballpark and I like it because you get to see the buttes at Papago Park. Photos of the day can be found here.

Saturday, Tony tore down the block wall that surrounded our pool equipment (which will be replaced by a wooden privacy wall) and we had to dump the mess (visualize one ton of concrete blocks) somewhere other than our alleyway,sooooo I made my first trip out to the Scottsdale landfill. It was pretty cool to see all this junk around us, until Tony got out to dump the concrete out from the bed of the truck — the SMELL WAS SOMETHING I COULD NOT EVEN DESCRIBE! I waited inside until Tony finished hauling everything out (I have no idea how he managed it — 10 minutes of that smell)! We know what to give Strummer for his birthday this year. Our pooch is a sniffer and the landfill is absolute doggie heaven.

Tomorrow? No smelly landfills or fun afternoons relaxing at a ballpark. Just back to the grind…
