Saturday night’s alright for racing

Or watching racing on your tv as I was.

Most people who read this blog don’t really care about NASCAR, I’m guessing. I’m not as much of a fan as I used to be. Big Tony Stewart fan, but not so much for watching cars go round and round for hours. But tonight was the Budweiser shootout, which is a shorter race with limited cars. Its also the first stock car race of the season, a non points race, and often just kind of fun. We went to it several years in a row, but its always so cold the night of the race, and shivering in the stands gets less appealing as you lose interest in the racing (I blame the “car of tomorrow”). Last year during the Daytona 500 the track got a pothole. So over the summer and fall they ripped up and redid the track, which changes the racing surface drastically, which also changes the way the race is. Over the off season, they also changed the design of the cars. It resulted in a bunch of two car packs running around the race track, with pretty much luck getting the leader into the lead. Suffice it to say it wasn’t a great race, and I was pretty bored. That and Tony didn’t have a great night, so that automatically makes it no fun.

Now that you’ve skipped that, I went to the hospital to see my mom today. She wasn’t there. I went to the nurses station to find out where she was, and they’d discharged her back to the nursing home. Uh, thanks for letting me know! So I went to the nursing home and saw her. She was a lot more coherent so I think what really happened was the whole not seeing me and being in the unfamiliar hospital threw her already slightly confused brain into a tizzy and it seemed like she’d had another stroke or something. Now I guess we just wait to see how much this almost two week hospital stay set back her physical therapy.

Zach got to meet some of the Magic players and shoot hoops with them. Sounded like he had a good time. He didn’t get to have JJ Redick call me like I asked though. Something about a really long line. As if he could have gotten him to call me. Ha! Tomorrow I’m making him do the laundry, just because. I don’t want all this good luck going to his head.

So, in summary, today was boring. I kinda needed that.

  1. Some days boring is nice. A “no news is good news” sort of thing.

    I’d have been peeved if my mom was discharged without letting me know! That’s weird.

    If you were watching the race on t.v. you might have seen BigBrother & LittleBrother. They went with their mother and when the drivers were being announced or something, the camera panned over them standing an yelling in front of the stage.
