Monday Morning Reflections




It's Monday morning and I am in need of a large cup of coffee to get me going today. I definitely am on basketball overload, after a full weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The highlight was going out to a bar on Saturday night to watch my MSU Spartans play their 3rd round game, against Harvard. It was a fun atmosphere, but it ended up being a little closer than we would have hoped. There were cheers all around when the game was over and now it's on to the sweet sixteen at Madison Square Garden. We also got to spend some time with my sister and brother in law, which is always fun. My tournament bracket is limping along - the same as most people. It was a weekend of upsets, but my final four is still intact, so I'm happy about that :-)



My puppy turned three on Sunday and I can't believe how fast time has flown since we brought her home. She constantly makes us laugh, with her quirky personality and is the best walking buddy around.



After tryouts for the 2014 - 2015 MSU Pompon team over the weekend, my daughter Melissa begins her final year as a member of the team. She will be a senior and it will be her 4th year on the team. So many wonderful memories and experiences for her and many more to come in her senior year.


Happy Monday!
