It’s thru the park district. Nothing serious. Kids running up and down trying to dribble and shooting 8’ baskets. Mostly just having them have fun still.

How old is he?

4. 5 in May. 

Laley23 replied to "2024 OC Members Highlights" at 03:43 pm

My son has his first basketball practice tonight. Only been looking forward to this for about my whole life lol. 

Soccer was last year, but doesn't hit the same as it was an adapted love for me. Basektball was my first/true sporting love.

I don't use TikTok because I'm not a 14 year old girl.

hope this helps

I have seen TikToks when posted thru Twitter. That is my extent.

I didn’t watch any of it, but skills competition should be teams of 2 or 3 and it should involve full court dribbling, passing, and shooting. 

Laley23 replied to "NBA 2023-24" at 11:53 am

Kenny Smith doing analysis in studio is top notch. Kenny Smith commenting for a game or contest is horrible.

3-pt contest and skills contest are super fun, imo. They should be the headliners, with dunk leading them off the night. You need there to be tension, and the 3-pt shooting gives you that as the crowd knows exactly what is needed from the players.

I have never experienced true dark times, just typical anxiety of growing up and becoming an adult (which in hindsight are nothing in the grand scheme of life). But, the 3 things that I love and look forward to are working out (ok, I dread this, but I love the results and the post workout feel), cooking/eating, and watching new and old movies. 

I work out 5-6 times a week, and coupled with a healthier diet and not travelling as much have cut down to 180 (I am 6'1) from 210 in about a 15 month span. From when I started working out (2015) I am down from 227. This just naturally gets me to feel better, even if I am already happy. 

I cook all the meals at our house. I have a spreadsheet to plan meals which also helps with binge and overeating, but also allows me to plan meals in advance a few days. I will get pumped, look up creative ways to alter a spice or sauce or whatever, go do the shopping for it, and then make it. It is a lot of fun to find a new meal that is delicious. Also love going to restaurants but don't get out as much with kids.

Lastly, I love film. So if you aren't into movies, this probably wont help. But maybe another hobby that doesn't "run out". I will run thru directors filmography's in order, binge an entire years of best pictures in a week, watch all nominated performances of an actor/actress, etc. Just creative ways to watch movies again and again. Then I will typically see all Best Picture nominations in a given year in theaters (or streaming if they are there first). I think I probably average about 25 movies a year in theater. I will also couple rewatches with podcasts (The Big Pic, Blank Check, Rewatchables) which makes the podcast more fun.

I’ll do the Super Bowl Round around next Tuesday

Laley23 replied to "Super Bowl food" at 01:42 pm

Made chili and queso. Ordered wings. Had Pizzeria Bianco delivered from Goldbelly. 

I ate like a king all day. Chiefs and props made me money. But my stomach is paying the price today.
