Cat Lady Wisdom

I just finished working (for my day job) a few minutes ago...
It has been a long day.

I woke up with whatever G-Man had the last couple of days (which I originally, incorrectly diagnosed as Senior Skipness).

But there is too much going on at work to take a sick day, so I decided to work from home.

I actually got a boatload of work done, until I fell asleep at the keyboard about 5:00 PM.

I slept until G-Man, sharing child that he is, woke me up as he came in the door from football about 6:30.

Where was I going with this?

Oh yeah....

So I finished working a few minutes ago and decided to visit Cat Lady's Blog (via Facebook - which I visited first)...

After WTF Wednesday, I decided to click on her fortune cookie widget...because I could use a little wisdom.

Shit, now I forgot what it said exactly, but it was something about a no-legged running teacher...

Which just reminded me that I had an email today from G-Man's track coach (who still does have both legs, btw)...

Apparently G-Man, who hardly ran track last season because of a pulled hamstring, did run enough to qualify for the Indoor Nationals to be held in March of 2010 in Boston, MA.

So there is a parent meeting November 1st to discuss preparing for the meet (no doubt by participating in other indoor meets) and fundraising to cover expenses because none of this is school sponsored.....

All I could think while I was reading was .....aww come on, at least give me a couple of weeks to get over football!

Track is a spring sport...November 1st????

Whatever....

Yow. Is this optional? I hope for your sanity's sake that it is...Good luck if you're doin' it.

Oh, I wanted to add that in your other post you asked if I should be in school;
BTW, as CatLady says, why weren't YOU in school at 11:30 AM; are you a senior?
I am in fact homeschooled. Usually not online in the mornings but sometimes I sneak away from school to get on.

I think it's great that he's involved in sports. Keeps him fit, makes him think and keeps hopefully keeps him busy enough so he doesn't get into too much trouble.

Enjoy every moment. Because soon, they leave home. I know...

I guess that's why they're called the INDOOR nationals.

Don't you find you get way more done when you work from home? I love it.

It never ends does it?

Scott, yes it is optional, but not as far as G-Man is concerned. And I just wanted to pick on you a little bit about being home during the day:)
How do you like being home-schooled? It is a great option if it works for you.

Theresa, G-Man is beyond busy; but it is good for him. Tomorrow is the last game he will play on the south field...I am already tearing up...

Chrissy, I get SOOOO much more done working from home...I Love it:)

Thanks, CatLady, I think...

Kys, it does not end. He is talking about indoor soccer already, in addition to the track...geez.
