Our weekends during soccer season are full of driving, directions, yelling, hoping, sitting, winning and losing. But they are busy. It rained hard almost all day yesterday, thunderstorms last night, and today we woke up again to cold drops pouring by the bucketful from the sky. So those calls that game one-then game two-then game three were cancelled were greeted with Woo-Hoo! Unexpected free time, a welcome treat for all. Yes, the games will be rescheduled, but I will take this small gift today.
Unexpected time for me to head to the gym, run a couple errands on the weekend rather than at night or during lunch hour, spend some time with the girls in the kitchen as they and Tara’s friend spend the afternoon baking cookies and doing homework and giggling and drinking smoothies and just having fun.
And then the sun peeks through, the temperature now 70, and we rush outside to feel the sudden rays, the wind so reminiscent of our San Francisco days.
Ah, to feel a little bit ahead is a great way to end the weekend. C
