I originally wrote this note – or came up with this note idea – in the middle of the soccer season for both kids.
Every Saturday, from 11:30 AM until 3 PM, we were chained to soccer fields.
I love watching my kids play, but after about a month, all three of us are kinda over the entire process of sitting around all morning until game time, sitting around while the other kid plays a game, the bugs, heat and then eventual cold, and chunks of Saturday that eventually gets forgotten like a pile of protein bar wrappers on field #4.
I would make jokes to other parents – and even write on these notes – about many of the things involved with youth sports.
These days, I’d KILL to have something to do for 3+ hours on a Saturday that involves being outside and around other people.
My life is one long list of activities I hate doing but miss as soon as they’re over.
I need to be a little more thankful for the little things in life.
Except mosquitos. Fuck mosquitos.
Other Stuff I Did When I Wasn’t Writing On Notes
It’s really hard to find a good TV show that won’t be too much of a distraction as I look at my phone
