Well, so much for drama going away. Now Ian thinks the older boys don't want him on the 3-4th grade team for some reason. I think he misses his buds and he's a little intimidated. But, now he's talking about quitting. And of course, my wife who seems to thrive on drama is all concerned and it will be nearly impossible to keep her from making a Federal case out of all this. I coach, I am there, I don't see anyone being mean or nasty to Ian or anyone else. The boys pick on each other sometimes and I try to quell that when I hear it. So, I am going to try to coax Ian through this so he can learn to toughen up a little bit. I dno't want to set a precedent to where it's ok to quit. My wife would have him quit in a second so she doesn't have to deal with it. She also hates anything that's competitive, can't handle that at all. And how did baseball get to be the American pasttime again? Geeze!
As far as the realtor deal goes, it looks like I will just have to wait to take my required licensing courses. I am simply blocked in. And ironically, when the band gig came along I was pretty excited, especially because it meant a paycheck. Unfortunately, it isn't much of one, and it's not worth the time commitment. So there's a fine "how do ya do" there lol. It's a bit discouraging because the one thing we need is increased income and it seems that I continue to find roadblocks to progress where that is concerned. Now I have an excellent opportunity for a second career, and I'm stuck lol. Ah well, something has to give, right?
It's strange how things seem to be great and going along nicely, then all of a sudden everything you thought was great isn't so much. Baseball is turning out to be a pain in the ass, certainly more than it's worth at this point. Cub Scouts has been a very big disappointment and now the air has gone out of my sails where the band job is concerned. I suppose all of this is happening for a reason, at least that's what my faith tells me. So my job is to make the most of these opportunities I've been given, be of service and just have faith in God that He will help me use these situations to better myself and my family. That part is difficult and I am damned impatient lol. And maybe the realtor thing isn't what I am supposed to be doing?
More will be revealed... Oh great, another platitude :-)
