Relatively standard Monday today.  I let Milly sleep in a little because when she goes out with Nana on Mondays she tends to get down for her nap a few hours late.  Sure enough, she didn’t go down until after 2:00, when she’s usually down around 11:00.

I feel like I got a good bit done today.  I was able to take care of some things for my regular job, and I was able to take care of some things for my impending job.  I would have worked a little later, but Duke played Tennessee in the Maui Invitational at 5:30.

Duke is unbeaten in Maui, having won the tournament all four times they’ve been there so far.  I’m a little worried about their ability to uphold the record this year.  There’s a good field and Duke just isn’t fully clicking on defense yet.  They also can’t seem to hold onto a sizable lead once they get it.  They’re a relatively young and somewhat inexperienced team, but they’re extremely talented.

Anyway, Duke won it 77-67 tonight.  This actually goes kind of against what I said about them being able to hold leads, since I think the biggest margin was 12 points tonight.  In just about every game this season though, they kind of suck it up for the first half, make a nice big run through the middle of the second then lose ground trying to drain the clock.  But yeah, they’ve got a lot of really good pieces, and once they click they should be a pretty awesome team.

Amanda watched the game with me, but Milly, whom we got up right before the game came on, spent her time eating princess yogurt (yogurt in Disney princess cups) and entertaining herself.  We were a bit slack in the stimulate your child department tonight.

After Milly went to bed Amanda and I watched How I Met Your Mother then I worked on some contact forms while Amanda watched Sing Off.
