K, Really?

Yesterday felt like I was in the movie, "Groundhog Day." After I got off work at 1:00p.m., I raced around, ordered the wrist corsage for Elijah's date tomorrow night (Homecoming Dance). I had to get candy & a Starbuck's gift card for the cheerleader who was postering our house for the football game tonight, and get my dogs pills (she has a leaking problem & the pills really help), then be at the football field at 3:00 p.m. for the JV game (I'm the team photographer).

My son played AMAZING! We won 13-12...whew! They put him at running back for the second time & he was unstoppable. He also played defense (linebacker) so he was pretty wiped out after playing both ways for 2 hours. Guess that'll explain the next part of my day.

I took him back to the school to get his stuff after the game. Then rushed home to be there when the cheerleader arrived. Then Elijah says, "Oh no, I think I left my mouth piece sitting on the bench in the locker room. We jumped in the car and went back to the school. He had actually put it away. Then we raced back home because the cheerleader was there, gave her the candy/gift card & took pictures in front of the poster she put up on our garage.

THEN...Elijah says, "I can't find my varsity jersey! (he's supposed to wear it to school & the game on Friday) I think I left it out because it's not in my room!"

I got back in the car & went to the school for the 3rd time! It wasn't there & he was stressing all night, (today at school he said one of the coaches found it & picked it up for him...lucky!)

What a day! Have you ever had a Groundhog Day?
