Happy April Fool's Day

Your eyes are not deceiving you and this is an actual post on my blog!  And no it has nothing to do with April Fool's Day.

I will admit to neglecting things here a bit lately.  Between coaching two baseball teams and running John to CCD down on Long Beach Island twice a week, there has not been a ton of time to do much of anything that is not directly related to the kids.

I even took last Friday off to take care of a few matters of personal business like getting a haircut and having the car serviced.  Still, after a frantic weekend of driving hither and yon I staggered into Monday feeling like I had not had a weekend at all, let alone a long weekend!

I've also got a new writing project for work, nothing much, but still it takes away from the creative time at the keyboard.  As part of an attempt to help demystify financail aid for families looking at higher education options, I've launched a blog at work.  It's not much to look at yet, but we're adding more stuff all the time.

This weekend marks John and Emma's Opening Day of baseball on Saturday and the Phillies opener on Sunday.  I'll be at both and there will be plenty of photos!

Monday night after John's game, I have to head south to the new Gaylord National Harbor for a higher ed software conference.  I am a bit bummed that it is not in DC itself this year but rather in some planned community/conference destination that was recently constructed southeast of DC.  In the past versions of this conference, I have enjoyed wandering DC on the free afternoons and seeing the cherry blossoms and nearly being arrested.

I guess I will have to check out the pool instead.

Good Luck to John and Emma - Ryan's Opening Day is Saturday as well - he's an Oriole this year.
