Hello dear readers, CardinalGirl is back! I have a goal to be a faithful blogger for the remainder of the season. OK, there will be about 10 days where you won’t hear from me because I’ll be out of internet and cell range at Burning Man, but other than that, I’ll be here!
It’s not that I haven’t been paying attention to the Cards. I have, somewhat, and I’ve been impressed at their performance overall and glad to see them in the thick of the chase in what we all expected to be a rebuilding year. I’ve just had a very busy summer. First off, I met a fella, who doesn’t like baseball but has enough other good qualities that I can overlook this (and perhaps he can be trained). Secondly, I’ve had some visitors from St. Louis and New York, so I’ve been playing tourguide. Check out my pics from Disneyland and Legoland. I threw a birthday party for The Edgar Winter Dog, with a doggie cake and an agility trainer giving lessons to Edgar and his canine pals. I also took a trip to Albuquerque and Roswell, where I attended the UFO Festival. Work has been busy, and I co-captained the Google team at the Santa Monica Relay for Life (we raised $12,000 to fight cancer – it’s not too late to donate!) and led the planning on the Google Santa Monica and Irvine offices joint summer picnic, which we had at Long Beach on Friday.
Phew! I’m out of excuses. If Carpenter can come back from Tommy John surgery, the least I can do is write some daily haikus.
