Pro: The Tigers outscored the hated Minnesota Twins 33-1 over the last three games, and went 16-9 in April - their best start since 1984 (when they won the World Series). Looks like a pikced a good year to get that Tigers tattoo.
Con: The cynical Tiger fan in me knows they can never keep it up. Plus, they're in baseball's toughest division and need to overtake the Indians and White Sox.
Pro: My dad visited this weekend and it was good to see him and spend time with him.
Con: Entertaining him for 72 hours was exhausting. I again feel like I didn't have a weekend and am going into tomorrow feeling unrested.
Pro: I cleaned up so much last weekend that my house is nearly unrocgnizable.
Con: I had to work today and couldn't clean the post-house-concert mess, so the cleanliness didn't last long. (Really, it's only messy now, not unclean.)
Pro: The house concert was great, one of my favorites I've ever had.
Con: Small, small crowd, one of the smallest ever.
Pro: On the way to the airport, we went to Paper Moon Diner, where I had perhaps the best omelet I've ever had. I couldn't believe that eggs stuffed with portabella and swiss could taste like the food of the gods.
Con: The only tables available were the two by the bar, which apparently is the smoking section - the other part of the restaurant was being mopped. While dad and I were eating (we were the only people in the restaurant at 6:30am), a couple of servers there had the audacity to sit and smoke about three feet from us eating. Therefore, the entire second half of my omelet was consumed with nasty cigarette smoke around me. Boy, was I mad about that. Can't wait for that MD restaurant/bar smoking law to be passed...
Pro: I'm not teaching summer school, as I missed the deadline to apply. That's okay, I'm stressed out as all get out right now. Can teachers get senioritis? I'm feeling it.
Con: Unless I figure out some way to make some decent money this summer, I'll drain all of the savings I worked so hard to accrue this year. However, I'm also thinking this might be the summer that I finally make some good progress on my Master's Degree, and that will make it worth it because then it's like an investment.
