…apparently I do.
First off, let me apologize to anyone who may have come to the Berwick field looking for me (not that I expected many). I wasn’t there. I got there, looked around, and realized my team was not there. So I pulled out the ‘ol schedule from my ball bag to see that I was indeed playing in Aylesford tonight. Hmmmm. Please don’t ask me why I thought we were in Berwick because I don’t know. I need to remember to check the schedule regularly because apparently I am going crazy. Especially if I am going to advertise it on my blog 🙂
Anyway, back to the crying. I’ve blogged before about the fact that I changed teams this year for the first time in…well, ever. So, it took me a little off gaurd when I saw that we were playing my old team, the Stray Cats, tonight. If I had checked earlier I would have had time to digest the fact that I was going to see them all tonight. But I didn’t. Therefore, I got to the field and got all…well, misty eyed when I saw some of my friends I’d be playng against instead of with. So I tried to suck it up, cuz it’s sports and ya can’t cry over stuff like that. But in my defence, it also happens to be that one day of the month that I actually cry.
So there I am, first inning, out in the field bawling like a baby, wiping tears on my shirt sleeve, second guessing my decision to change teams. I love those girls. They’re fun, they know me already, and I know them. Why did I leave again? Oh right, too far from home.
Anyway, you’ll be happy to know that I got over it…until next time we play them. They gave me a free pepsi in the parking lot after the game as a peace offering. They’re totally trying to win me back 🙂
It might work.
On a totally serious note, could you please join me in praying for Carly Skaling on Wednesday? She is the daughter of our friends, Ang and Shawn Skaling. Carly is having surgery at the IWK. I don’t know all the details but please pray for that family. As far as I know, Shawn is still at military training so it will be hard for him to be away and for Ang not to have her husband beside her. They also have two other little girls as well. Thanks, I know you’ll pray for them 🙂
