The germs have found me and won’t go away. It started about two weeks ago. Sore throat, congestion, and just plain blah!!! Then in settled in my chest…cough, cough, cough. From there it slithered into my stomach all the while staying in my chest and sinuses. It hasn’t been real bad and hasn’t been keeping me at home (except last night…my tummy was not happy) but its very annoying. I’ve been hiding from germs for the past 6 months. God watched over me (as always) through the surgery and the chemo and the plastic surgery. I was very very careful to stay away from sick people and crowds. I didn’t get sick even when the germs were right in my own home (B and Hubby). So I guess I shouldn’t complain about getting this now. I hope it doesn’t last much longer. Baseball season is in full swing and I don’t want to miss any games. It has been very rainy so lots of baseball games have been canceled.
Baseball season means more than just games for me. It also is media guide season. If you’ve been a long time reader you might remember my rants this time last year (and the two years before that) about the media guide. I was determined not to do it this year but well seeing that its B’s senior year I wanted his last baseball media guide to be great. I didn’t want to leave that up to someone who doesn’t have a clue. That and of course no one “could” do it! One mom said she could help a little and then another mom said she could help a little too. Big whoop! So I am delegating. I have given them all the running around duties - distributing the information to the players, collecting their ads and money on the due date, collecting the ads and money on the extended due date, and guess what??? Even though I wanted to be done last week I am still getting ads. My part involves putting all the information about and pictures of the teams and coaches, pictures of the new field, and highlights of the previous season into my original template. Scanning in all the ads and putting the finished product onto a disk to be taken to the printer. I was planning on giving the disk to them to take to the printer but its getting so late I’m just going to do it myself. After its done and I pick up all the copies I’ll have them distribute them to players and businesses.
I’ll be going right from baseball and media guide season into planning B’s graduation party. The good news is that I’ve done one graduation party already for J and I plan on doing a lot of the same things. I also will have a lot of help from my family :)
Oh I have to also tell you that coach jackwagon (aka coach ff in previous posts) is not coaching varsity this year. He has moved on down to JV where he is (so I hear) just as much disliked by players and parents. He should have never been allowed to come back after all the things he did last year. I feel for the JV team but I’m so happy we don’t have to put up with him this final year. We do have a new coach on varsity. We haven’t seen him since he coached J back when he was in 9th grade on the freshman team. He coached JV for a few years then took a break from baseball. Thankfully he has returned and is assisting with the varsity team. We loved him when he coached J and we love him even more now. He is not only a great coach he is also a wonderful person. I’m sorry that we only had him as a coach for two years.
Btw it may be my imagination or just that my crohns was so active during chemo but lately it seems to be very well behaved (except for this bout of cold/flu/crud)…maybe even better than before all this cancer stuff. Wouldn’t that be wonderful if that continues :)
