My goal is to write and post to this website six days a week, taking a break only on Sunday.
I didn’t write or post anything yesterday. I’m not beating myself up over my lack of writing though, choosing instead to refocus my goal, and be more disciplined in the process.
I could have posted something yesterday but I chose to turn my alarm off and sleep in on my day off and one of the only days of the week I don’t have to get up early.
After sleeping in, drinking some coffee, and throwing some clothes on after a quick shower I met the guys from the Junior Varsity basketball team for breakfast at Owyhee Lanes and Restaurant before heading to the high school for a shoot around in preparation for our game last night.
When the shoot around was over we had practice for the 5th and 6th grade team my middle son, Jacob, is on. I co-coach the team when I can make the games and practices.
At home, after practice was over, we had lunch and then we all rested on the couch while watching a movie from the 1980’s together. This is a favorite hobby of mine, introducing my boys to movies I watched as a child. Some 1980’s movies are better than others (read Goonies is better than all of them).
When the movie was over I got ready for my game, while Heidi and two of the boys prepared to go to Jacob’s game. Samuel, my oldest son, hung out with me at the gym during the games.
My team was victorious, and when we got home I didn’t feel like doing much of anything, so I sat on the couch and numbed by brain before going to sleep for a few hours.
This morning Jacob had two more games at 8:00 and 11:30. For the weekend his team went 1-2. Between games we went to Flying M for coffee in downtown Nampa, and then walked down to Vintiques to wish Jake and Skee a happy one year anniversary of being in business!
We got home with 4 of us after the game, Jacob spent the afternoon paintballing with some of his friends, and spent the afternoon relaxing and working on some projects around the house. Braden and I enjoyed a walk around town to purchase a few things, and I simply enjoyed being outside on such a nice day.
I continue to work out the nuances of this website and my idea of creating a resource for parents. The ideas are in my head, on paper and part of sorting my thoughts out includes writing this blog, processing with other people, spending time with my family, and living the life I have been called to live to the best of my ability.
Thanks for being with me during this first week. I expect writing and focus to improve as I carve out more time to work on my craft and streamline my thoughts and ideas.
