I went home last night thinking about going to bed as soon as I got in the door, as the night before I'd gotten about 3 hours sleep at the most. I am not one of those type of people who can function on so little sleep, so I was dragging. Yet it was not to be. Sugar Bear had band rehearsal with the high school and as he was leaving he said "I need your help with something. I need to write a 5 paragraph story for honors english".
Okay sure, when is it due?
Oh and um, Nick was wondering if he could come over after band. He needs help with his math quiz.
Now, I'd turn down Sugar Bear before I'd turn down Nick (and you know I wouldn't really do that). Nick spent all of last summer in summer school so he wouldn't stay back again. I'd helped him with math last week and he got a 90%, so I think he was hoping for more of the same.
Only problem was I was so damned tired. So much so that when I asked Evan what he wanted for dinner, he said "triscuits and cheese" and I replied "Okay!" (not a good mommy, I know) Later on, at almost 9pm he said "Hey I'm hungry!" and was thrilled when I gave him a lunchables from the fridge. His actual reply was "You are the best mom in the world!" Wow. I suppose only the best mom's don't cook dinner and feed their kids crap instead.
Evan wrote his mystery story and Nick did his math and social studies. Actually, he got his math done and was putting everything away when I asked him if he'd done his social studies. "Um, no, not yet."
Well it was 8:30pm....so maybe you should DO IT. Yes, I made him do it and no, he didn't want to. Then I checked it and we fixed it. He kept saying that it didn't matter if he got stuff wrong because it was just homework, and you can surely bet I disagreed.
The two bastards kept making fun of my talking though. When we were working on math I suppose I said "formularrrrr" instead of formula. I never heard the end of it.
Anyway, they are the reason there is no poker recap today. After that we watched a little bit of the Bruins, who won for a change and then it was off to bed to sleep like the dead. But there's a poker recap coming and it's a doozy. I even took notes!
It's Friday that means Football Picks! Waffles, his son and daughter will all be playing this week. Time to take the family down!!!!! Who knows who he'll recruit for next week! My guess is Bayne. Now that might be challenging.........nahhhhh. :)
BTW I got a few texts from Wolfie who is Atlantic City at the moment. He was down quite a bit from a cash game but made some of that up in the "pink game" whatever the hell that is. Obv he doesn't run so well when his lucky charm ain't around. (moi) It's funny because I was railing a bit in that foxwoods tourney after I'd been knocked out. I was watching a table that I hadn't been playing at because one guy was all in, with 5-5. lol He was up against A-K and I just happened to be standing right next to him but didn't know him from adam. I just got this feeling that he was good and I said so. Then the flop came down A-2-K. He started getting up and I said. "Don't! I'm telling you, you've got this one". Turn was a 3, and hope started to glimmer in his eyes. "4 or 5!" he said. Yep, he got his 4 on the river for a straight. As I started walking away he said "You don't have to go you know!" LOL
Play smart and stay tuned for my poker post over the weekend.
Folding My Way Up The Ladder - (Second of Two Parts) Part 1 is *here*. We pick up at the Commerce tournament after I mentioned I went levels 12, 13, 14 and 15 without writing down a han...
