The tennis clay season is now on!

Dear Sam,
I'm so glad to see that you have been up and about again. That's great!
By the way, I am sorry for being quiet for a long while. You see, I thought that when I resigned from work that I'll be able to spend more time blogging. Not!

You see, I am now a stay-at-home-wife. And with that comes the home-making responsibilities that I need to attend to. Where before I used to tackle needs researches of the community, now I make sure that our needs at home are met. Before I make budget plans for community activities, now I handle our monthly financial budget. So difficult especially now with current inflation and world crisis! So of course I make sure I get what we need without burning our pockets!

But one thing that hasn't changed at all is my love for sports! Be it team sports or any individual sports, especially tennis, I never fail to check out the sports program listings on TV for anything that catches my fancy. And do you know what, I always check out who's good looking, who's hot, or, in the case of tennis, I look out for the player who has the nicest outfits in the tournament. I kind of get curious how and where non-sponsored players get their outfits,too.

It's the clay season again in the world of tennis and my favourite player Rafael Nadal has just won the Monte Carlo Rolex Tournament in Monaco - a historic sixth consecutive title! What a feat for the man from Mallorca. I was actually looking forward to Rafa playing in the Barcelona Open but I was disappointed when I saw in his website that's he decided not to. Of course I felt bad, but he himself knows what's important. I guess he is really preparing for the Roland Garros French Open tournament to avenge his loss last year. So, no tennis action going on for Rafa in the next weeks... There are lots of footie matches on TV but, honestly, football doesn't interest me at all, I guess I'll have to check other offerings over ESPN and other sports channel on cable TV.

Perhaps the cheer-dance competition (on ESPN) will have to do now. These cheer groups have fantastic costumes I wonder who designs them.

Anyways, this is all for now. It's the weekend again so I hope you'll have a good one :D
