    The “lawn decor” is spot on haha. I can relate, even back when I was growing up, Baseball paraphernalia was scattered everywhere outside of the house

    After the season ends we have withdrawals and don’t know what to do with our spare time!
    our cars become clean again after the season ends, and so do our son’s room! Laundry is only done once a week and not every other day!

      I can so relate to those withdrawals. It’s funny how when the season’s over you realize how efficient and productive you can be, getting everything done in spite of all the hours at the ballpark.

      You’re so right, Julie. Currently, we have ranch, bacon, dill pickle and barbecue. Gotta have those seeds!

    How clever, that was awsiome and true. How did you find time to do this.? That why I am doing it at 4:15 am . Baseball is awesome, yes it does take a lot of our time, however it is worth it, because soon enough it will be over and we will miss it even though it sometimes takes a toll on us. Thanks Patti.❤️⚾️

      So very true, Patti! I think about that a lot when I start to complain about not having time to do anything else or all our vacation time being spent at the ball field. In a few years when it’s all over, I’ll probably be heartbroken.
