This morning is glorious! I love being able to sit out side and reflect on a great week gone by. Nikki got to West Palm Beach, we won our first and only soccer match this season, and went to Citizens Bank Park for a beer and wine festival. Nikki will be heading out today to attend the Football Festival for Women at Lincoln Financial Field. I got her tickets for this event for mother’s day and she couldn’t have been happier.
The wife is awfully lucky to be able to travel for work and she gets to enjoy some nice places from time to time. This week she ended up in West Palm Beach and Singer Island in Florida. One of her favorite moments was sitting on the beach late at night with a glass of wine and just listening to the waves crash. It’s times like that where you can take in a deep breath and enjoy living and realize how good life can be. She was able to enjoy a couple of bars and restaurants while she was down there and try to convince me that we are going to move to Florida now. According to her I need to buy a condo in Chicago, Florida, and Dewey Beach. How the hell am I going to make that happen.
This year our local soccer league needed some coaches so the wife and I volunteered to coach our oldest daughters team. Yeah your right I don’t shit about soccer. With that being said it isn’t that hard to coach 8-10 year olds. Stick to simple things and remember that they will only retain about ten percent of what you are showing them. I mean, hell they thought the medals they got were fidget spinners. We lost most games, tied one, and this week we won our last game. We couldn’t have been happier or more excited for them. One of our girls even got a hat trick. The wife took on head coaching responsibilities and did a great job. She would have rather coached softball but that isn’t what our daughter likes. Josh was our assistant coach and did a great job helping us out and to be honest coached us more than he coached the kids. The girls stuck together all season and went out with a win.
So then there was Saturday, oh what a shit show that was. No really I had an amazing time hanging out at Citizens Bank Park and drinking more beers than I can remember. Some were good and some just sucked all together. The best part was that the wifey and I had a great time together. We got to go on the field, walk the base paths, touch home plate, and take a few photos in the dugout. So I now have been on the Lincoln Financial Field, played lacrosse at the Wells Fargo Center, and now been on the Phillies Field. Yesterday’s events included more the 200 beers of which my head feels like a drank all 200. I did time traveled a bit at the end of the day well maybe more than a bit. I really wanted some nachos last night and never got them. I did manage to destroy some chicken tenders and chips, of which I don’t remember.
The wife gets to end the weekend with a bang, heading to Lincoln Financial Field to hang out with some of the players, run drills, win prizes, and have a great time. The Eagles are holding their second annual Football Festival for Women. I thought this would be a great mothers day gift and apparently I hit a home run. She was more than excited when she got the tickets for the event and almost jumped out of here shoes. It got a lot better when she found out that Zach Ertz was going to be there. Hope she can grab some autographs for the collection. This will help kickoff the new season, oh and I got my season tickets of this season also. Oh what a week.
See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler
