So last night I took my daughter to a bubble. This bubble:
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. 😃
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:
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.)
But first, this happened:
This morning I got attacked by a bird if you’re wondering how my day is going so far.
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. 🙄
This morning I woke up with a dull, aching headache.
Last night I drove my kid to the wrong venue for practice.
(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.)
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. 🙄
