These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age (56). I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.
Today's happiness -- The infield. Rizzo, Baez and Castro. How I love this young Cub team! That's three hot bats, three competent gloves, all under age 25. I feel free becoming very attached to these kids because they're so young they'll probably be my guys for seasons to come. Sure, we're cellar dwellers now but, should I dare to dream, these could be the players that lead us to the promised land, or at least the play-offs.
There's a popular t-shirt with a Cub logo and the phrase, "Just once before I die." So I am a little afraid that if we do get to the World Series, I'll have to croak.
