Lazy Sunday afternoon

I have spent the last few hours bumming around the house, doing a little yard work and watching some TV. This has been my kind of Sunday. While I’d like to say I’ve made some great strides in doing work around the house, the to-do list continues to grow and not shrink.

The last few weeks have been non-stop with work. Covering concerts, meetings and other events pretty much made up every week night from the middle of April until now. Once graduation at RTR was finished on Saturday afternoon, I have to admit I could feel myself relaxing a little.

Keep in mind, it’s a false sense of relaxation as I know Monday is just around the corner and more evening meetings and events await.

I used graduation as a marker that said: “There is a little less to do each week.”

I am in no way complaining. I enjoy being busy, but having a relaxing Sunday where I can watch National Treasure 2, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and a Twins game is my idea of an accomplishment.

Memorial Day is right around the corner and that will be followed up by Aebleskiver Days and the Lincoln County Fair. Then school starts up again.

Currently: An NBA playoff game is on in the background.

Timberwolves vs. Suns on March 23, 2014

I have been a fan of basketball and the NBA since I was 11 years old. When I first watched Michael Jordan on TV I was hooked instantly. I played team basketball for a few years but eventually gave it up.

While I don’t get to play the game much, my love for basketball continues to grow. After forgiving the Timberwolves for trading a favorite player long ago, I’ve grown to love the T-Wolves. Last year I was able to score a media pass to a game against the Lakers. The organization treated me very well and a die hard fan was born.

I finally made it back to the Target Center to see the Wolves play the Phoenix Suns. It was a day game on Sunday which made it easier to drive the 3.5 hours to the game (one way).

The team lost, but I had a great time. This will not be the last time I will be at the Target Center for a game. The Timberwolves are now in my regular rotation each year along with the Twins and the Vikings. It’s probably good I don’t live in the Metro because I’ve looked at Timberwolves memberships (their season tickets). I would get a membership in a heart beat if I lived closer to the cities.
