|Jake is 2nd guy|
After that Friday the weather was perfect! I had met a girl from PAO, and she was sweet enough to let me sit with her, and all the wives/gf on Corpus Christi side (YES the team gave me crap about it the entire visit!) I had a great time, and at the end of the day we all are somewhat on the same team! :)
Then Sunday Jake headed to Midland, I decided I would head home and drive back with Sophie for the 4 days. I came down with a stomach bug late Saturday night, and woke up throwing up and everything else.. It was terrible! Jake had to go to the field, our checkout was at 11 am. I extended it until 2 if needed, and finally felt like I just needed to get on the road for the long car drive alone throwing up and all... I had a coffee cup and ice bag that I would throw up in when needed.. I got stuck in terrible traffic in all the major cities, but finally made it home after 8 hours and went MIA for a day! That is by far the worst day in baseball history in my books! Glad its over!!!!
On a different note that doesn't involve vomit.. A boutique in Arlington purchased my wine glasses and are giving them a shot! I now have them in two boutiques, and very thankful and excited!!
On Thursday I was out looking for some glasses in Dallas, and ended up getting in a car accident. No one was hurt luckily, and as disappointed as I was to mess up my fairly new car, it is just material and still drivable since we only have one car out here! It was equally both of our faults, but the lady wasn't so nice to me at first..once she made me cry I did get an apology (she was screaming at me at first...I'm glad Jake wasn't there or my dad!!)
That's all the negatives and now onto the EXCITING stuff <--It gets good I promise! :)
When I was in CC I was just browsing different blogs (I never do that) and came across this story about this little boy with Leukemia. He is 6 years old, Grayson Hughes. I HAD to find out where this family was! I had no idea they were in Texas, and come to find out they are in Frisco!!!!! I honestly couldn't believe it, and knew immediately I needed to email them-not sure what to say, but I knew I needed to and NEVER do things like this...ever......!
Grayson announcing Chris!
|The boys matching on Saturday Guns and all!|
Anyways as hard as baseball is sometimes what we got to do last week made it worth every minute of the hard 7 months of the long season! When we get to use our platform for the good, and people listen because of what Jake does is amazing along with the families involved! We are one big family, and stick together! It's amazing having girlfriends who want to hop on board to help others in need who aren't even in Frisco! I am so excited to see what is in store for us for the future!
This season as many of you know has been in Jake's favor.. Overall he has done very well! He feels great, and is hitting his spot often. We absolutely love Frisco, and being back in Texas! We do miss our families back home, but couldn't ask to be in a better town if we have to be apart! Sorry so long, but I had a lot to say this time! :)
He is in the lead for most innings pitched in all of the Texas League (Roughly around 100) and second in lead for most Strikeouts!! Thats very awesome, and I had to brag!
