Home Alone

A short commute..., originally uploaded by radioflyer007.

Yup, wife and kids are away vacationing with the visiting grandparents. That leaves me home alone this week. Someone has to bring home the bacon -- or in my case, make bacon at home?

The house sure is quiet.

I find myself blasting kids' favorite Little Einsteins theme song to fill the silence and spending mucho quality bonding time with TurboTax. The annual ritual this year features a same-employer but multi-state return. Not for the faint hearted.

Outgrowing, originally uploaded by radioflyer007.

I guess kids are constantly outgrowing their clothes and themselves. This is a mosaic made of Lolli's clothes retired as recently as... only last week. My wife took these pictures to eBay them off as a good size lot. As I browsed through these pictures, they brought back so many memories and a big smile on my face.

Here is one attempt to document and savor these memories.


Pre-season Exhibition, originally uploaded by radioflyer007.

This was the last 2008 Dodgers pre-season exhibition game. This one, they happened to be hosting the Boston Red Sox who, might I add, are THE 2007 WORLD CHAMPIONS!!! This was also the day before the Dodgers season opener, in a year that's their 50th anniversary in Southern California. It was a blue sea of Dodgers fans and high spirits.

For me, it was a great male bonding time with friends and not so much a good game for the Sox. Personally, I was just dying for some Red Sox back in my blood in this lonely and far corner of the Red Sox Nation... It was hard to contain the excitement as I passed the many Red Sox fans in the parking lot and in the stadium. I literally wanted to go up to each of them and give them a big bear hug, or perhaps more appropriately just a high-five. Or maybe just a knowing smile. Or maybe just nothing so I didn't look like a crazy fanatical fan. But is there anything wrong with a "fanatical fan?" That's where the word "fan" comes from afterall (maybe?). And I am certainly not that fanatical by any means.

I miss the comradery of the Boston fandom.

I miss my friends in Boston.
