Duke vs. Carolina 2013 Round 1

Lackluster game.  Carolina lead most of it, Duke played awful for the first three-quarters of the game or so and won by five, though to be fair the last points scored by Carolina were as the clock was running out on an uncontested dunk.  Still, a bad win over a down Carolina team is better than a loss to a bad Carolina team. Had a rough afternoon.  Amanda came home early, sick.  I had a meeting, which was fine, but after that it kind of went downhill.  Milly wanted to play, but I had a ton of work, plus I had to fix enchiladas.  We were supposed to take some dinner to Paul Klouse and his family (they just had …

Milly’s Choice

Milly still sick. Asked her this morning if she wanted to see Mum Mum and Pap or rest today and see them tomorrow. She chose going today, so we decided to go today. Fielded a few work calls. We stopped by Crabtree Valley Mall on the way to pick up a present for Callie and let Milly spend the money she’ll be getting for Valentine’s Day. She picked out a Naveen doll and a Charlotte doll from Princess and the Frog. Also stopped by a Target to pick up a gift card for Erin for her birthday/moving away gift. She’s moving to Maryland next week. Both of those are the reason we headed to town. Got to Rougemont. Looked into …

The Duke-State Rematch

Today was a big day for Duke fans as Duke got to exact some revenge against NC State for the loss they suffered a few weeks ago, the first of the season.  The first half was really fun to watch.  Duke was making shots at a ridiculous clip to end the first half up 58-37. I don’t think Duke made any more threes in the second half after making ten in the first.   The Wolfpack played better too, winning that half 48-40.  I think State got their deficit down to nine points, but Duke ended up winning 98-85. #1 Indiana lost on a buzzer beater to Illinois this evening.  #2 Florida lost earlier in the week.  #3 Michigan hasn’t, …

Milly’s First Meeting

When I got Milly up to go to the bathroom last night she told me she was sick.  I wasn’t sure at the time, but she was right.  She seems to have come down with a little cold. Been trying to get a meeting with one of my top clients for a bit and this morning was an available time, but of course I was going to have Milly with me.  One of the people there had been wanting to meet her for a while anyway, so I was told to bring her along, and thus Milly had her first meeting today. Before the meeting we filled up the gas tank and dropped a check off to pay for Milly’s …

Milly and Lauren at Port City Gymnastics

At 9:30 this morning I took Milly to play with Lauren Nowak at Port City Gymnastics.  They have open gym for $5 in the mornings.  I didn’t stick around long, but they were really having fun when I left, and Sarah said they were funny playing together.  It’s good for both girls.  Sarah has said that Lauren doesn’t have a lot of girls her age to play with, and Milly gets bored stuck in the house all day. Work was work.  Put out some fires, got some things done.  Amanda and Milly were laying Just Dance this evening, which has become a pretty regular thing.  Milly’s been improving at it.  When I finished working she and I played MarioKart, though …
