Tennis Tuesday-Just what I need, another distraction!!

The US Open is in full swing (pun intended) and I'm having a hard time staying away from the TV. USA network has about 9 hours of coverage a day! That's pretty hard to resist.

It would be even better if I could go see it live, but there are about 800 factors which prevent me from doing so, including 2 kids, a ton of prep before school starts and the fact that decent tickets cost an arm and a leg!

Catherine was BEGGING to go hit tennis balls today, so I took her out and she is a natural. She just turned 5, so if we keep working, I'll have an in-house tennis buddy in a few years!

The summer is my slowest time tennis-wise, and I am counting the days until my leagues start up in the fall. I am so desperate to play that I even miss the tennis psychos from my spring team.

Tennis is the only form of exercise I get other than vacuuming, folding laundry and cleaning out the litter box and I need it desperately. It puts me in such a better mood when I play.

So I'll count the minutes until September 8th and keep myself busy with school shopping, haircuts, new school orientation and general motherly duties.
There's alot of work to be done.
If I can only stay away from the TV, and the drama of the US Open...

Just wait until you get her old enough to hit balls with you. It is so much fun! Of course, I started losing to my teenager around age 11, and it's been nothing but frustration.

Hey - crazy question that I decided to bring to the master of all things tennis:

Whatever happened to that cutie Andy Roddick?

Talk about drama! did you see Safin (a total babe) play today? I only got a little bit.. it was filled with drama and horrible calls. No one will play with me here. Not that I am in playing form. Stupid shoulder. Cross your fingers for a good, GREAT report on Tuesday... one more week, one more week. I am hoping!!!!!!!!! Glad you have a tennis buddy at your house!

I'm loving the US Open, too! I was up until 12:30 am watching Blake play last night - yikes!

I can't wait until my fall league starts, too!
