This One is Going to Be All Over the Place

The Girl played volleyball yesterday and I am proud to report that her team won. She scored the winning point in the second set with a serve that was so perfect it brought tears to my eyes. She was pretty tickled with herself as well since her serves have been the one aspect of the sport that she has found most challenging.

In other sporting news, the Man-Cub starts flag football practice next week. We haven’t heard from the coach as to what days they will be practicing or when their games will be but I am crossing my fingers for them not to be on Thursdays as the Cub is still attending tutoring sessions once a week and Thursday is his day for that.

The tutoring has really improved his skills in a lot of areas. It has also increased his self- confidence which has helped him to do better when taking tests. I’m still not a fan of the whole standardized testing bullshit but, I feel better knowing that he has overcome his anxiety at having to take them. Which can only help his scores, right?

On a totally unrelated topic, I ate the last of my fresh blueberries this morning. It actually made me sad. One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast is vanilla low-fat yogurt with fresh blueberries and a light dusting of low-fat granola and now I’m not going to be able to eat it anymore.

And, while I am aware that there are still a few containers of blueberries to be found on supermarket shelves, I am reluctant to purchase them because the berries are puny looking at best. Also, they are ridiculously expensive.

On the bright side, I did have the foresight to freeze several containers while they were in season so, at the very least; I can have oatmeal with frozen berries. And, you know, complain about how IT JUST ISN’T THE SAME!

I’m sure Hugh will grow to love that refrain. Right around the ten millionth time he hears it.
