We washed windows at our house Sunday. Jill did most of the work, to be honest, though I got quite a workout cleaning other parts of the house.
I was exhausted by nightfall. It didn’t feel like an off day.
Maisa had a productive day, too. She went No. 2 on the potty for the first time Sunday evening! Woo-hoo!
We had to call both of her Grammas to share the news. They were very excited, and Maisa was very proud of herself.
The Phillies tied the NLCS at a game apiece Sunday night. 6 to 1 was the final score over the Giants.
Frisco’s run came on Cody Ross’ home run. He has four blasts in the last three games — off Derek Lowe, Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt (according to ESPN radio announcers).
Four or five years ago, I was watching a Dodgers-Pirates game on TV at our old townhouse in Ankeny. Ross had a career game in a Dodger rout, hitting three home runs and driving in six or seven runs.
The Dodgers had to cut him a few days later, ironically, because they needed to make a roster move and Ross was out of options.
Ross eventually ended up at Florida, where he had two or three decent years. The Giants claimed him off waivers this year, I believe, and he has done a good job for them. Surprising power. A nice player.
