It's Wednesday, so only a couple more days until the big swim meet. The prep has been going fine, overall. I honestly can't complain too much. Except I still am feeling general fatigue from thinking about it, and there is part of me that just flat out doesn't want to deal with it. We had… Continue reading Some volunteer fatigue and I used the crockpot!
Meet is over + a day I’ve been looking forward to
Good news- the swim meet is all over. Everything went fine. There were the usual hiccups here and there, but nothing terrible. The biggest issue was that the head coach had set a ticket limit of 250 tickets per session (a.m and p.m.) because our pool just doesn't have that much space for spectating. He… Continue reading Meet is over + a day I’ve been looking forward to
Big sigh of relief- the Regionals meet is DONE. Everything went well and we got a lot of compliments from other teams/parents about how smoothly everything ran. I also felt very honored, because someone came up to me yesterday and told me that our co-host team's Meet Directors were "raving" about what an awesome job… Continue reading DONE

THE MEET IS OVER. Yippee. We all survived all 3 days of the meet, everything went well, and it's done. THANK God. I am legit exhausted right now, though. It was just, obviously, a lot- both leading up to it, and also I think the nervous energy all weekend long of just making sure everything… Continue reading I survived
Today is Day 1 of the big swim meet I'm coordinating (well, it starts tonight at 5:30). Friday night is the "distance events session". It's only a couple hours long and not TOO many kids, so should be pretty low key today. (The big kahuna really starts tomorrow.) Asher is swimming the 400 IM for… Continue reading Context shifting
I’m such a sucker! Back to volunteering….
Hello hello! I didn't really intend to stop blogging for ~5 days, but I guess I did. Main reasons include: -Ivan is still in Mexico (gets home late tonight), so things have just been a little busier for me. -My parents came for the weekend (since I couldn't be in multiple places at once with… Continue reading I’m such a sucker! Back to volunteering….
Something I’m Not Missing
I feel a little guilty even writing this post, but it’s something that has been swirling around in my head for a while. One thing, despite the many, many things that I’ve been missing, that I’m just….not. I don’t miss volunteer work.There. I said it out loud. For a little context, it’s not even that… Continue reading Something I’m Not Missing
