Baltimore - Jacoby Jones is exhausted but excited. I spoke with the Ravens Wide Receiver this afternoon. It was just before 11 PST and he was heading to rehearsal. Since I caught up with Jones and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff last week, they've been dancing every day for six hour stretches! He says it's been serious business. So far his least favorite has been the stretching.
My least favorite part as i prepare for my departure tomorrow morning has been the cooking! Today I cooked three full meals for Tim and Taylor so they'd have home cooked meals while I am away. I'm pretty pleased with myself.
Tonight it was the last supper. After cooking all day and finally zipping up the suitcase the three of us went to dinner in Towson. A great little Cuban restaurant called Havana Road. It was pretty good. We wrapped up the night with some frozen yogurt. Jacoby's mom is arriving in L-A tomorrow to cheer on her son, and I'll be hitting the road to cover all the excitement.
I can't wait to get there, however I'm dreading the tears I'll face at the airport tomorrow from my sad little 8 year old. Wish me luck.
