so tomorrow night is round one playoff game…. this is actually a sad state of affairs… we have a team of boys who aren’t really a team…. coach is so incredibly frustrated right now… it’s as if the players don’t give a flyin shit about playoffs. seems that winning district was enough for them. i don’t understand that at all. at all.
the weather is changing once again… hot then cold then hot then cool then warm then cold then hot then freezing… and now for today it’s cool…tomorrow freezing they say… no wonder we can not get well or adapt to anything ha!
i’m going to start some GIS classes in the upcoming weeks. i’m actually rather excited about it. GIS on the surface seems pretty techie and quite boring…but when you consider all the things you can do with GIS, wow! it’s sort of right up my alley…. my alley is dark, dusty, and a bit treacherous…but it’s my alley nonetheless
there are so many things i want to do… and near enough time in the day to do them… each day i want to read, draw, take pictures… i want to play on the internet, learn, and loads of other things… so much i want to do… but by the time i get home from work there’s just no room for most of it…. and with a wonky schedule it’s even worse
ever since that possum was sleeping in our mosquito netting, beulah has been preoccupied… imagine that ha! the critter hasn’t been back but each time beulah goes outside, she goes on the hunt… she looks everywhere for the trespasser….
so my forever friend…. you remember her? and remember how she talked to my daughter several months ago and said she wanted to talk to me? she called again… a few days ago… and there was some amazing irony in that phone call… very sad… her daughter was just diagnosed with MS…. i hope she can come to terms with her diagnosis. i feel so bad for her daughter…she’s in her mid 20’s.. she has an 8 month old baby… she just started nursing school… it’s going to be a tough road for her… thankfully her husband is a caregiver – his mother has MS too.
but… i don’t know how i feel about that phone call…. on one hand i’m pissed… on the other, i’m hurt… badly. of course i talked to her and told her what i know, what i’ve learned over the last year. and i said she should have her daughter call me should she ever want to talk. i’m doing my best to be the better person here… even through my snarky thoughts and broken heart
so it’s that time of year again! coach is putting together his resume package and sending it out… all across the state… maybe this year will be the one… maybe this year we will be able to move on to a new community, new school…. keep your fingers crossed!
can you believe the holidays are just about here???? sheesh where has this year gone!?
