dear a.y.s.o.

its been fun,but i'm not gonna miss ya.

sincerely,
not the perfect soccer mom

i love my calendar for november.

its wide open.


no more soccer practice...

games...

snack mom duty...

and no more crazy soccer parents, living vicariously through their 5 year old...

chill out, people.

(this reprimand does not include parents excitedly cheering for their 6 year old who scores her first EVER goal, followed closely by the SECOND ever goal... especially if said 6 year old has been wanting one so badly, and practicing and praying for one for two seasons.)

(no, those weren't tears in my eyes... it was the sun... or the wind... or something...)

Man, I hate to tell you this but I'm one of "those" parents. The yelling obnoxious type that gets overly excited if my kid even so much as touches that ball with her baby toe. We do Summer AYSO. Olivia loves it, as does her Mommy. :) Of course when it's over...I'm so relieved...but then we started violin again...ugh is all I can say. So to answer your question it's toooooo expensive for me to move back. Their are WAY too many tempting restaurants and stores and all the things I don't have money for, but like I always say, you never know. Our life has a tendency to switch directions when we least expect it. Next time I'm there and not on a quickie biz trip I'm going to call ya!!!!! We need to meet, seriously. I just know you are a kindred spirit. Anyone with that much wit and sarcasm has to be connected to me. :) Have a good week girl.

So... prayers do get answered! I've been praying for that goal(s) for her!

BTW, what camera do you have? I think we're in the market for another. Recommendations?

Yay!! So glad she got a goal! Whoot. I am with you with the cheering for the end of the season. We are right there with you. Now on to basketball...big sigh.....

My calendar for November is still crammed full, but December is wide open and I can't wait. I know exactly what you mean!

And it's one thing to be proud of and cheer for your baby, quite another to act the fool screaming at them and the refs and the coaches from the sidelines like SOME parents do. I feel your pain on that one, too.

Happy Empty Calendar!
