Totally had a great day.
It started early…6:00 a.m. I was much happier when my man walked in with a
big gulp size Venti Sumatra from Starbucks. Don’tcha just have days that you KNOW you could drink a big gulp size coffee from Starbucks? I went through a state where I would drink two Venti’s…back to back. Full-leaded, too. I was kind of…hyper back then. And grumpy. Definitely grumpy.
We headed to Maryland shortly after 6:00 a.m. because my girl had a (what else) volleyball tournament and they pulled the 8:30 a.m. slot because they were first off their net. (Top seed in their bracket…which was a disappointing “B” bracket.)
It was a great day for volleyball. I wish I had thought to take pictures of the weather. I haven’t heard thunder like that in a long, long time. And the rain was coming down sideways. Note to self: volleyball is an INDOOR game…no rain outs!
I have to say that, with some Divine Intervention, my girl finally has her mental game together. NOT to say that she doesn’t get ticked at herself…she does. But then she’s able to pull herself out of it. No big deal, you might be thinking…but it is a huge thing for her and, I have to tell you, God DOES care about my daughter’s mental game. How she handles it now…definitely impacts how she’ll handle it later. I know. From experience. My own.
So…Going for Gold turned to Settling for Silver this tournament. They won their bracket and placed second against the top seed in the “A” bracket. The girls played well. They had fun. The parents had some good chat time.
All in all…a great day.
