I was so looking forward to this weekend. This was the first weekend in a long time that I didn’t have to be somewhere or do something. That is, until I got home Friday night. That’s when I was reminded that I am an assistant coach for my daughter’s soccer team.
For those of you who know me, that statement is quite funny. I am NOT a soccer fan. However, my daughter is. She loves the game. Since she does — I do — now. She’s moving up to the U-10 division of AYSO Soccer this fall. Since I was an assistant last year in U-8, I decided I could help again this year.
What does this have to do with anything? Well, Saturday was the day for coaches orientation. A full morning of getting ‘certified’ to be a coach. Actually, that’s certifiable. 🙂 We actually had to participate in some of the drills — or as they called them — exercises. I spent five hours in the sun kicking a soccer ball around. Yes, I got sun burned. Head is as red as a beat. It hurts.
After that I came home and mowed the lawn, which I enjoy, actually.
Following that — a shower and a trip to Moca and Music to listen to a friend, Matt Elmore sing. It was a great day, actually. Except, I’m experiencing strange pains that can’t be explained. I’ve been to the doctor and he has no explanation. I’ve had a physical, blood work, have been to a specialist — still no answers. I’m having a procedure done September 15 to find out if my ‘plumbing’ is okay, but I have no symptoms of any issues there.
Pray for me. Perhaps it’s all related to the problems I had back in November, which really didn’t get figured out.
