It was a good night to go to my backup plan: leftovers. So far, since I started the diet a month and a half ago, Iíve cooked every night except when I was (a) sick or (2) not home. The leftovers havenít gone to waste, but theyíve made for some awfully heavy duty lunches the next day.

Now the leftovers are going to be dinner two or three (or four) times a week, and my lunches are going to be simple salads or sandwiches. Thatís how Iím going to make the diet work for me, now that itís not a ďdietĒ diet, but an eating plan. (I should be able to come up with a better term, I know, but ďdietĒ has a connotation I do not wish to imply.)

(Although I have lost a few pounds, if it comes to that.)

Anyway, I was in no mood to cook tonight, no matter what. Iíve had two extra-stressful work days in a row, and I was out of the house for a couple of hours to watch Aiden play baseball. The members of the opposing team tonight were all about twice the size of the kids on Aidenís team, but that didnít keep anyone from having fun.

David pitches to his own team, and at one point when Aiden was at bat, he announced that he was going to hit his dad in his broken ankle. He missed the ankle but ripped the ball right at Davidís neck. I was coaching first base, and he bounced down the line toward me with a big grin on his face. ďI hit my dad in the throat!Ē he told me, as if that were the actual object of the game. I told he did what he was supposed to do, hitting the ball hard. Itís the pitcherís job to get out of the way.

Aiden and Kylie (from Sunday).

It was such a relief not to have to stand in the kitchen chopping vegetables tonight. My back was already wrecked from doing payroll, paying bills and trudging back and forth all day between the computer, the desk and the filing cabinet. There wasnít much sitting involved, and it felt as if it would never end. Iíll get back on the program tomorrow night, but itíll be my program and nobody elseís this time.

Giants 9, Nationals 7. It would have been tough to see this one get away, with the Giants blowing a 5-1 lead, giving up three on a big fly in the seventh and three more on a string of weird plays in the eighth. But this is a team on a roll, and they put together a two-out rally in the bottom of the ninth, capped by a walk-off three-run homer by Pablo Sandoval. In the end, it was probably just as hard for the Nationals to see it get away.
