I don't know why I fool myself every year. School begins and I think to my self, "You're going to have more time." And well...what a joke! I get busier than ever.
I am coaching soccer again. E* scored a goal at our first game on Saturday. Go Wild Cats! Though one little girl informed me that she was a Wild Tiger. Grrrrrrr. We didn't win, but we made 3 goals. E* has surpirsed me with his soccer knowledge. My co-coach Randy quizzes the kids and E's hand is in the air and he can answer all the questions...What is a referee? What is a corner kick? What is a throw in? What is a...? He must have had a super coach last season..hehe. He is always more assertive on the field.
Like I said, we didn't win...but that just means that we have room to improve. As soon as Coach Randy and I can get the other kids on the team more assertive, we'll be all set.
I'm leading Brownies again. Though this year, I am a coleader and our troops have been combined. The other leader is pretty organized and motiviated...so I won't have to do all of it on my own. Yeah!
Ken is the den leader, though I have no idea why. So I will be the wind beneath his wings...or the nag in his ear. (A nice nag, Mom! As nice as I can be. Promise.)
I do have some stamping chores. haha. I am a guest stamper on my upline's blog. I see that Joy hasn't posted my August card. Guess I need to check on that too. I am stamping 52 large envelopes for a service project geared toward mothers/families of stillborn babies. I'm not sure how to say that gently enough. Also, I have to put together 2 booklets for 2 little girls who were recently baptized. Those in attendance were given 1/4 sheets of paper to write down their testimonies/good wishes...and I am going to bind them together.
On Splitcoaststampers, I am one of the Divine Secret Siblings Coordinatores. Believe me, that takes a lot of patience and medation! haha.
So then there is the never ending laundry and mopping of the kitchen floor...dinners to be cooked. Oh yeah and 2 birthday parties to plan...ugh.
But...on the upside...E* has 3 days of school this week and I am hoping to go see a movie tomorrow. Alone, by myself, in the middle of the day at the movie theater. If I get the nerve to do it. It sounds so lonely and boring! haha.
Well, the rain has foiled my Cub Scout plans. I took a break from rushing about trying to redo the meeting tonight. Guess I'll get back to gathering supplies and telling the kids to settle down.
Oh yeah...wonder if we are going to practice in the rain tomorrow!
EDITED to say..>I didn't even include my Church responsibilities! haha
