Monday through Friday are sacred days. I wake up, I work out, I go to work, and I come home ready for 3 naps immediately followed by bed time. I never ever ever. ever. have the energy to do anything. Especially on Mondays.
But somehome my husband's family managed to convince me to go to a Braves game this past Monday. I was really really not looking forward to it and of course by the end of it I was so glad to have gone. It was fun staying up late that night! I felt like such a rebel!
And it reminded of my love of baseball. I grew up surrounded by nothing but baseball fields and terminology. I mean, LITERALLY. Baseball is extremely huge in Venezuela and the only thing that little kids play during their free time. So, of course, it's always pretty exciting to see Venezuelan players playing here in the States. I yelled and cheered for my fellow patriots. You go Enciarte!
Anyways, it's been a week since the game which means if I want to talk about it then I have to talk about it in the past. Which means it's time for a little imperfect and preterite work!
