Ok…I know you are all drooling and having fits because I STILL haven’t given you my race update from Vegas because I was there and have you know actual pictures and stuff to share…and I promise this will be published on Wednesday morning sometime.
Anyway- during the Atlanta race- right about the time I was considering giving up on Tony and crew and taking a nap- I mean it I seriously was bummed by being 2 laps down and all. Anyway- during that time my nephew came over for a few minutes for a visit. Now I haven’t given you all an update on him lately so consider this it.
He’s 11 and 1/2 months old. Anyway he came over and was busy crawling around and so I was distracted by watching him to make sure he didn’t try to do a header into the laundry basket (why is he so fascinated with my laundry basket) or trying to pull the dogs tail (not that she seems to care). Anyway my dad went and retreived a truck for him to play with while he was visiting and it was very interesting to say the least. He is semi-interested in TV for about three minutes and then its off to something else…anyway- he’s zooming this plastic singing truck around (which amazed me in itself because the last time I saw him play with the truck he flipped it upside down and just spun the tires with his hand). Anyway I was half watching him play and half watching the race and something on the race caught my eye…and I probably said something to the effect of YEY TONY GO or something like that (when he is visiting I TRY to keep the adult language to a minimum). And he whipped his little head towards me then towards the TV and then actually watched the race for a couple of minutes. Then went back to playing with his truck. I don’t know why it fascinated me but it was like he was actually watching the race because I obviously was so into it I was talking to the TV- so it must be something good.
Of course a little while later he successfully snagged my cell phone off the end table and tried to sneak off with it and expressed his frustration at the fact that I wouldn’t let him have my iced tea that he shrieked at me.
