A day in the life...

So today has been a strange one for me.

Last night I stayed up really late talking with a certain someone. I'm pretty sure I feel into a non-continuous sleep around 1 am. Now, this is late for me on a regular day, but today was a different kind of day for me. Today was my first day assistant coaching a cheer squad. Practice for this team is at 6 am, so I had to be out of bed by 4:15 am. You can do the math for that, you'll only need one hand to figure out how much sleep I got. So needless to say, I'm tired.

The next unusual circumstance, the weather. I have the weather sent to my phone every evening. It usually pretty accurate, however their forecast for today was a high of 49 and partly cloudy. Yeah, I didn't know it was going to snow. What a fun surprise! The roads were a mess on the way to practice. I was pretty nervous so I was taking it slow, but people were following me much too close for comfort and then passing me so I got off that road as to not impede traffic. My alternative route turned out to be relatively free of cars at that early morning hour, however it was not plowed. I was cruising along comfortably when all of the sudden I no longer had control of my car. I was rapidly sliding of the road towards the curb. My thoughts: "Oh crap, I don't want to fix this piece of crap car again!" Luckily, right as I was about to go up and over the curb into a fence and possibly into a house, I regained control. I was still shaking after I was safely in the gym at practice. I averted disaster!

Practice also turned out to be great. I was a little nervous for many reasons, but there was no need for nervousness. Wendy is an extremely organized and intelligent person and that makes it easy to work under her. It was fun to see this new squad learning and working together for the first time. They made a lot of progress for even just one day. It was great! I'm really looking forward to the next practice.

...but now, its 4 pm and I'm burnt out for today. Guess what? I still get to go to panty hell tonight though. Don't be jealous!

You're too cute. Today's my first time reading your blog this week. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed practice. :) Sorry about your lack of sleep though...
