Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

I really have been trying to get here to blog... so much to comment and lament on... what constitutes name calling... the whole Pelosi plane thing... Obama's announcement... Hilary's disgraceful conduct... Noah (the reason for this blog... Welcome Home from NTC, son!) Many things... but it's tax season and I graciously (foolishly) agreed to prepare family members' taxes (and of course these are the young ones who actually get money back from Uncle Sam so they want it all done early...) and I am helping out a friend of a friend at her CPA firm for tax season (just a few days a week... but NOW I remember why I retired!)
Anyway, I will try to get back to the blog some time this week... but I wanted to share my happiness. This from the Major League Baseball website:

With the northernmost part of the country buried in snow or chilled to the bone, the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals welcome their pitchers and catchers to a new season on Tuesday in Tampa and Viera, Fla., respectively, and then work out on Thursday.

The last team standing at the end of the 2006 season is among the seven teams reporting on Wednesday. The World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, led by ace right-hander Chris Carpenter, begin defense of their title in Jupiter, Fla.

Meanwhile, the Florida-based Baltimore Orioles and Philadelphia Phillies also report on Wednesday, while the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants get the jump on the 12 Arizona-based teams with Thursday workouts.

God's affirmation to me that life is good... life goes on. I don't have a crystal ball, but I see Spring Training baseball games in my future!
