Ups and Downs

Lots of ups and downs yesterday.
~
In the morning, I had to explain to Sarah Crawford that, even though I had designed a costume especially for the occasion, Joanne and I couldn't attend the G-Party that had been scheduled for this Halloween season.  The Crawford's Halloween Party is always the social kickoff of the holidays, and I hate to miss it, but we have to take care of some business that weekend.
~
I was afraid that Sarah would be pissed.  Wouldn't you be mighty Miffed  if the MOAM pulled out of your Shindig???? But she seemed to take it without any rants or obscenities.
~
So that was a down, then an up.
~
Then Joanne and I went over to Home Depot to get a sprinkler, soaker hose and some grass seed for the backyard turf project.  I raked a truck load of leaves and debris out of the backyard, then moved the 2 cubic yards of loam out of the driveway and onto strategic piles in the backyard.  That took three backbraking hours, and I was really exhausted.
~
But the yard looks in great shape, so that was a down, then an up.
~
Then Harvey and Lisa Panakio Rowe came over with the lovely Maria Rowen to watch the Pats game.  The Patriots were down by three with a minute to go and it was looking bleak, then Tom Brady showed why he is the best player of the generation when he marched down the field and threw a TD pass with seven seconds left. 
~
Mike and Kate were at Gillette with their significant others, Pam Georgia and Brady Boyle,  to watch the game and they must have been as pumped as we were.
~
The dinner was the balls, but the game was stressful until the Pats pulled it off.  So that was a down, then an up.  Plus Harvey won his fantasy football matchup, so everybody left happy.
~
Then I watched Boardwalk Empire and fell asleep.

What do you want???? A freaking exciting Blog post every time?
