It’s about to get crazy

Tomorrow, football season starts for my oldest son. We have practice four nights a week for two hours for three weeks, then three nights for an hour and a half for the rest of the season. Plus games on Saturday and random events/fundraising. He’s 9. And I have two other sons starting martial arts. And a little thing called school with lots of reading and homework. So… my life is about to get really crazy. 🙂

I am going to need to really work hard to keep up with all of that AND stick to my writing challenge. But the great thing about having a goal, and sharing it with others, is that you have a way to keep moving ahead when things get crazy.

A friend posted this great quote on Facebook today:

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
– Henry Ford

I may get busy ( or rather, busier ), but I will keep my eyes on the goal.

Have a great week y’all and I’ll catch you next Sunday after I have made it through our first week back to football. 🙂

PS – I saw 30 Seconds to Mars in concert for the first time last night and it was such a fun time! I became a fan in the last year or so. You can read a tiny bit of my 30 Seconds to Mars love in my A is for Alibi post from earlier this year. Seeing them live was great. And they played part of the song Hurricane, which is one of my favorites!!

I will have to see them again and I will have to get seats closer to the stage next time. If you wanna go see a cool show – be sure to check them out.

And Jared Leto – he is awesome. 🙂

  1. I missed you yesterday at group and at Twisted Root afterwards, but I am so glad you got to go to the concert. It is entirely due to you that I gave them a listen and was blown away by how good they are.
    Fall schedules…I know your pain. Not to that same extent maybe. Well, actually, yeah…to the same extent. I have 2 kids in band, one high school (and a senior) and one freshman in junior high. Plus, a 4th grader. Not that he has a big schedule yet but it’s coming. I can feel it. Take care, remember to hydrate, and get out and have some fun, too.
    I’ll leave one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite 30 Seconds To Mars song:

    Into your eyes
    Hopeless and taken
    We stole our new lives
    Through blood and name
    In defense of our dreams
    In defense of our dreams

    Love,
    Jess

    1. Oh I was bummed to miss yesterday too! We had the twins’ birthday party yesterday. Whew! Kids birthdays are all done.

      I am glad you are liking them – I sure love them. They played that song Saturday – Kings & Queens, a fave. Also Do or Die which is a new favorite for me.

      Miss ya – we’ll have to get our little crew together soon – maybe at the Pancake house again. 🙂
