A Saturday night race can sure screw up a Sunday afternoon

NASCAR Bush Series and Nextel cup races are held every weekend, save 2. They take the day off for Jesus (Easter Sunday) and Mama (Mother’s Day). The normal schedule is Bush series races on Saturday and Nextel races on Sunday. With the exception of a couple night races. This weekend happened to be one of them.

Nextel raced Saturday night, which was different; I’d never seen a night race before. The problem with this was, I fell asleep before it was over. The other problem was how to fill a Sunday afternoon that I usually filled with racing?

Sunday’s with Boo are lazy, lay around do a whole lot of nothing days. Maybe do some laundry, and straighten up the house, but by 1:30 we’re parked in front of the television, glued to Fox sports to watch NASCAR racing. That fills our entire afternoon, and early evening.

This weekend, Nextel saw fit to throw our whole routine into helter skelter, by scheduling their Sunday afternoon Nextel Race on Saturday night. What were we going to do with a free Sunday afternoon?

Then to top it all off, it rained Sunday, (which, thank heavens, we needed desperately). That threw a monkey wrench in our plans to plant a flower bed in the front yard. Now, what to do?

We somehow managed to stay busy, puttering around the house, hanging pictures, moving a desk, setting up his office, watching a couple of movies. We survived, but damn I’ll be glad Nextel is back on Sunday next weekend. (Although it won’t matter, I’ve got a 4 year old’ b-day party to attend).
