Okay, these schedules are getting a bit ridiculous. Hubby last night decided we need a third parent in our family. With boy scouts camping on the 13-14th of next month, track decathalon on the 12-13th, track cleaning project on the 14th, soccer tournament on 13-15th, the cc course needing mowed every weekend. We are stretched a bit thin, to the point it is ridiculous. Will have to wait and see which way the chips fall.
Last night I had this awesome dream about high jumping again. I kept clearing the bar, they raise it up two inches, and I'd wait for some people to get out of the way then jump again. Each time they raised the bar, 5, 5-2, 5-4, the number of people I had to wait on, to move out of the way, kept increasing. By the time the bar was at 5-8, it was like a cross country meet in front of me. Weird how thoughts get tangled. I never had a chance to jump at that last height. But, boy, did that ever give me the bug to want to try jumping again.
At the end of practice I asked Karoline if I could borrow her spikes and the 'J -heel' she wears. I took a couple of jumps at probably 4-11 - to maybe 5- 1. It felt great up to the point of take off, and then gravity grabbed hold of the backside and set my butt right down on the bungee bar. Never felt so stuck to the ground in my life. It was fun though. Probably ruined my reputation as a high jump coach! Thanks Karoline for letting me try.
recruiting Friday, track meet Saturday. Doing a lot of driving. Travel mercy prayers please. Praying for no panic type attacks. I keep telling myself "I love to drive".
Have a great weekend.
