I took me out to the ballgame.... 

Whew! What a day! The baseball game was at 1pm. We knew it was going to be hot today, so we didn't take our seats until right before the first pitch. I had awesome seats....near 1st base, 9th row. When you sit that close, you really have to pay attention to the game in case a foul ball comes your way. Three landed in our section; one was five rows directly in back of us.

Behaved myself and wore the granny hose even though I was sweltering in them; it was 94 degrees during the game! I put SPF 30 on my face and arms (I was wearing a tank top), but it rained a bit during the middle innings and washed it off. Then the sun came back out for the last two innings. Thank goodness I'm not photosensitive this year....I got just a bit of sunburn, about normal for someone who sits outside for three hours. I've already had a shower and put Solarcaine with aloe on my pink shoulders.

Had popcorn and fresh-squeezed lemonade at the game along with my health bar. My friend and I had a more sensible meal after the game. I was a little bit wobbly on all those stairs, but I just went slowly and did all right. I'm probably going to go to another game with a bunch of co-workers on the 19th; that will be an evening game.

My team did lose (16-4, ouch), but I got to see Barry Bonds hit a homer, a sweet double play by my team and some great catches. And I brought my binoculars so I could even see the expressions on the players' faces. There were over 37,000 people at the game, so people watching was also quite fun.

I'm pretty exhausted, and my muscles are all twitchy, but I think I'll watch some movies tonight with my feet up and see if I can't get the edema to recede. It was definitely worth it.

Pain level: 6
Fatigue level: 9
