Today started out great... eating a hearty breakfast of eggs and cereal and heading into our usual morning routine. Making sure to make a strong pot of coffee. Yes, we were able to snag a coffee pot!!! Big Score!!! Sometimes we get lazy and don't feel like walking over to the Mc Cafe!
Headed out in our spiffy blue uni's geared up ready for another day of battle! We only were able to get in 3 complete innings in due to lots of rain and storms. It hit pretty hard. In between rain delays we were able to fit in some good tunes and a couple card games including spoons. Lovie was champ at spoons! Bummed out by the final decision to post pone the game and finish up tomorrow we loaded the buses and headed back to the village. We are down 0-1 to Canada. Looking forward to finishing it up tomorrow. We play Japan tomorrow first at noon and then after that game will complete the Canada game. Tasha is up full count!
We had a lazy rest of the day saving all our energy for competition. We headed through the rain to the dining hall for some dinner. I had some pizza, salad, a few other random things like olives and then a piece of a lemon bar. As you can see I definitely have a sweet tooth and enjoy food! It seems to make my blog daily now! :) Some headed to the salon for blow outs, we are getting spoiled here! With 1 blow dryer for all of us (we have blown out the rest) its tough getting a good head of dry hair around here. The salon offers free ones so we are taking full advantage. I already lost a hair dryer and straightner... bummer up in flames and smoke. Not sure what we are doing but obviously our voltage isn't going right! While some headed to the salon, Bustos and I made our way back to the room to watch Million Dollar Baby. It finished as a tear jerker but it was a good one. We now are headed off to bed!
I was just delighted to get 8 photos of Casey and Ace posing in front of the camera. It was so very cute! So fun! Monkey faces, I love you signs, and tongues out! It brought major happiness here seeing them so happy together!
Thank goodness the rain finally subsided and we look forward to a really sunny day tomorrow, perfect for a couple to ball games! A highlight from today was this man holding an American flag at the game shouting Team USA Military! Go USA! We are all one!!! It brought chills to my skin knowing we were part of his team! Team USA! Go USA!
Good night and sweet dreams!!!
