A hard loss

No, not a family member or a football game. But the Cal Women’s Basketball team lost in overtime. I can’t say that either they, or Utah were consistent. Errors were made on both sides. Actually all three side – the refs being the third side with some really stupid calls both made and missed.

Besides the game, two rows in front of us sat Ron Rivera, the coach for the Washington Commander’s (Football team formerly known as the Redskins). He is a Cal grad. More importantly, his wife played on the Cal Women’t basketball team. They were here, in Berkeley today to support women’s athletics. Not in LA, not at the Super Bowl.

Alex is holding it together. Dani’s dogs are doing their absolute best to be escape artists, because, of course, she has enough already on her plate.  I am figuring on getting back to stitching and cleaning the craft room sometime after we find if Alex needs surgery or not…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
