In the bubble

So last night I took my daughter to a bubble. This bubble:

About quitting, or not

I realize some of you follow LA and she just did a whole thing on quitting last week. But this topic hit me upside the head last night so I’m pausing my pity party for a moment to mention it.

Kids helping kids: fun times at the rink

My 11yo daughter, a kid with a natural social disposition as well as a desire to be involved in activities, has been invited to volunteer in the Learn to Skate program.

So after her final baseball game on Saturday morning, which ended in a silver medal, I took her out for a donut and then home for a bite to eat. After that, we went to the rink. 😃

Me in summer wear and the girl child in rink wear. 😜

Never a dull moment – Wednesday

Hump day was not good. I won’t bore you with all of the misery but instead will extricate the best parts for you.

Like this one:

Monday: you’re on notice

Yesterday was a day. Ugh.

Short version: My excellent suggestions were ignored by family members. Result was epic fails all day. 🙃

At end of day I jokingly tried to teach them my mantra (repeat after me: mom was right), but they refused (ha) and so I escaped with my 3rd glass of wine to the back porch after dinner. Left them to clean the kitchen (which I had to finish later in a somewhat, um…tipsy state. Ahem.)

Will they ever learn? 😜

But first, this happened:

Outdoor youth sports and the weather gods

I spend half of baseball season tethered to my phone or some other device where teamsnap is loaded into.

This year’s baseball season has been a particularly wet one so I have spent more, not less time, keeping an eye on that app.

I’m not feeling it this year. I’m mostly just annoyed. 🙄

Wrong place right time

Last night I drove my kid to the wrong venue for practice.

Boo. 🙂

(Just bear with me here…I may sound like I’m complaining but really, I’m just anecdote-ing my life as it unfolds because one day when I’m all alone and old and probably depressed I’ll re-read this drivel and it will help me remember that I went through all these adventures as a parent of kids in sports during the age of the internet.)

Another mayhem Monday

This morning I woke to some uncertainties as to whether or not I will be driving to some obscure part of town through massive amounts of construction for a baseball game the girl child was scheduled to play in later this evening.

I originally booked her off. Then I got an email from the coach asking if she was available.

I looked at the weather and saw that most of the week will be rainy and figured, why not. I’ll find a way to juggle it. It may be the only game we’ll get in this week.

So I sucked it up, went through anxiety mode to prepare for my trip by attacking google maps every which way in order to find the easiest/fastest route to get there without getting lost or losing my mind and finally calmed down enough to tackle the rest of my day. 🙄
