Slumlord Update

Well, whoever tried to burn down our rental property- as if we didn't know- didn't do a very good job at it. It is only a couple thousand in damage and shouldn't take long to get done. My husband said they must have tried to burn down our house with a sparkler. Haha. Not that I'm a pyromaniac or anything but I think I could do a better job than them. At least I would have doused the house with gas or some other kind of accelerant to get a good blaze. Oh well, we're trying to look on the bright side of this whole experience. We just want to get the place fixed again and rented soon.

Today started Paige's softball tournament. It's double elimination so it makes for a long day. Probably because our team is not very good so we played 2 games today. We lost our first game but it was close. Paige pitched all 6 innings and only walked 4 girls. She even had 2 double plays. We should have won, but our defense is lacking skills. They aren't sure what to do and sometimes just hold the ball and stand there. It's the first team many of the girls have ever played on so they will get better.

We won the second game however, and so we go on to the next round tomorrow. Paige didn't pitch this game because the team we played against is actually worse than us. We won 23-0. The coaches even held up the girls at 3rd base or it would have been higher.

Oh well, Pens are on in 30 minutes and I have to get my shower.
Have a great weekend!

Wow that is really luck for you that they didn't know what they were doing!
Hope your daughter's team does well at their game!
