Goooooalll!

Goooooalll!
by Gina Valley

Fall soccer kicks into full gear this weekend (pun was not intended, but, you have to admit, quite apropos!).

My pack is on 4 different soccer teams, so it won’t be quite as difficult as the year when they were spread out on 6.  But, challenges have already presented themselves.  They always do.

I was just thinking about some of my many “Duh!” moments.

The fact that I just noticed my shirt’s on backwards has nothing to do with it (note: I originally left the “r” out of the word “shirt.” Somehow that seems fitting. Glad I caught that on the read-through.  I wonder what I missed).

It was such a beautiful day here in Los Angeles today.   It topped out at nearly 80 degrees.  Flip flop and shorts weather.

I should have realized something was amiss when I slowly woke up this morning.  I was at peace, relaxed and warm and snug in my bed.  None of my usual “Oh-my-gosh-it’s-morning-go-go-go!!!” kicked in.  That should have been a clue to panic and fly out of bed.  It’s unfortunate that neither Miss Marple nor Columbo was around, because I did not get that clue.

That’s NOT Mess

That’s NOT Mess

My pack loves me.  Really loves me.  I know this the instant I come in our front door, because I am greeted not by a tidy foyer as I have shortsightedly requested, but by an accumulation of debris which is undoubtedly a signifier of their affection for and concern about me, their mom.
