So I haven't written in over a week...been having a whiny, bitchy, I am sick of hearing myself feel bad sort of 2 week stretch of time. It started, I think, with the heart deal that I had at practice and there are all sorts of other "they really don't matter in the long run" sorts of things that I allowed to really get me down. This morning driving to Albuquerque for an audition I had a bit of a what ever you call those things when you call your own bluff moments. I'll call it a deelie bop...just cause I like the sound.
I realized that this screaming neck pain I am having is a gift really...it's is taking my mind of the heart issue...and the heart issue is a gift because..XYZ....which led me all the way around all sorts of things I was taking too seriously...
I was practicing stones and WFD on Mother's Day when Pierre said to me, "You've already given up on these games haven't you?"
"Yes I have."
"The why are you going?"
"I am supposed to."
EWWWWW...I really had that conversation? I really felt that way...well the drive to this audition and then the audition itself made me rethink this whole crap ass attitude.....I'll go with my friend Travis on this....All I need to do is do my best this weekend with where I am right now,
and you know what...I am gonna listen to my friend.....Even if I
come in last...I am still a pretty darn good thrower.
See...that's why I haven't been writing much...who wants to read that?
So thanks Deelie Bop....you were much needed and you are much appreciated.
NOW...the schedule for Saturday...for the women 40-49

Mother of god...caber is first? Then sheaf? Boy oh boy that could do a number on my confidence...Who put this together? I'm kidding...there are like 12 different groups of athletes throwing on Saturday...I am grateful someone, other than I, figures out these logistics....
