Serious case of the diamondbacks blues...

So I live in Idaho now... and mostly there are 3 things that I miss about AZ. My family, the sun, and the Diamondbacks. Oh and the 3 week American history tour my family is currently enjoying... but i'm receiving a hilarious play-by-play from Mariah, so it kinda makes it worth it. A little. Ok not really, but i'm over it. 

But out of all of those I'm fairly certain that the one I miss the most is.... the diamondbacks. Maybe because I can still talk to my family and know i'll seem them soon. and because every once in a blue moon the sun comes out for a day or so. but i'm missing THREE QUARTERS OF THE ONLY 2012 BASEBALL SEASON THE DIAMONDBACKS WILL EVER PLAY! I am not handling this very well. I check the scores pretty often, but it's just not the same.  I don't know how the individual players are doing. I'm missing the EXCITEMENT. Whoever says baseball is not an exciting sport, obviously.... just... I don't even know what to say.... they just don't know anything. There is a rather large section of my heart devoted to baseball, the Diamondbacks in particular. And there is LOTS of excitement. My heart has started racing many a times during these games, launching me to my feet, with my hands on my head. The walk off homers, the crazy catches, the strikeouts or ground-balls to get outta jams, come from behind wins, rookie moments, throwing base runners out, sweeping a rival team, clutch hits, the driving energy as they round the bases. Momentum is not something you can read about on the play-by plays, it's something you need to experience. Plus all the season fluff. You know, the jokes and pranks the players play, Ryan Robert's fierce vein popping facial expressions, the fist pumps, the dog piles, the outfield sandwiches, the legends race, Mark Grace and Derek Sutton's rants, the brawls, the suspensions, pitchers nailing players in the head, managers getting kicked out of games. Everything. I'm missing it all.

First on my agenda when I go home will definitely be a Diamondbacks game! And an outside BBQ... even in the 115 degree weather! I'm SOOO stoked!!!

Spoke too soon...

Well my friends, it was too good to be true... Rexburg is no longer warm. In fact, it didn't even get above the 50's today. Seriously I don't even know how it is possible to drop 45 stinkin' degrees OVERNIGHT!! But anything is possible in this Idaohan town. Yesterday there were RECORD HIGH'S around the state and tonight we have to bring our flower planters in because it's suppossed to get BELOW FREEZING. I haven't been able to entirely wrap my mind around this concept. But at least i'm being cultured.  Later tonight i'm supposed to go on a date to the park to play kickball and volleyball. But it's just too cold, windy and now raining.. so we'll be doing an indoor activity now. It's June and we're stuck inside because it's too cold to be outside... I live in Idaho now.

Summer lovin'

Today is a GLORIOUS day! Why you ask? Well how about because it's 90 degrees in Rexburg!! 90!! Mmmhhmm! It's BEAUTIFUL!! I just want to put on shorts and bask in the beauty! I'm seriously so happy. One downside... our apartment doesn't have air conditioning. It's a slight bummer, but i'll take it over barely surviving the coldness of April. May was bipolar... 70 one day 40 the next. Here's to hoping June stays this warm forever!! :)
