It was the whirl wind of a trip, which means a whirl wind recap.
Unexpected events of the weekend:
+ Cloudy and cool temperatures in Austin for kickball day. I LOVED the warmth, seriously, I miss my 80 degree days, but was super thankful for the unexpected cloud cover. Kept me from getting fried.
+ Good play by me during my two games. Practice has been limited recently and I didn't expect to do much, just hold my own. I had two really great at bats and a few stellar catches.
+ Losing in the first round of eliminations. Dagger, sadness. OUCH!
+ Realizing how much I miss this group of people. Yes, I know people think we are crazy trailing around to play a kids game, but the relationships built truly last. I hadn't seen MANY friends in over a year and it was incredibly fun catching up with everyone. We root for each other on the field and in life and I almost teared up thinking this could be the end.
+ Not making it to the bar Saturday night and passing out at 10:00pm. Cheers to sleep.
+ DST making my sleep gllllllooorrrriiious for Sunday morning.
+ A crew time out which changed my connecting flight email that caused me to completely change my flights and leave earlier than planned. Grateful I worked quickly because many people got stuck on the delayed flight which had us landing in TYS at 2:30am, ouch.
Enjoyable moments of the weekend:
+ Having a teammate wait for me at the airport so I didn't have to ride to the house alone.
+ Seeing Le Husband after a week apart.
+ Morning walk for coffee with the housemates. Awesome time catching up.
+ Two great catches.
+ Delicious food at the field to eat while we watched the other teams play for the championship.
+ Amazing dinner at the JW Marriott.
+ Good execution during the women's tournament.
+ A friend lending us his car to get me to the airport for my earlier flight.
+ Using the Admiral club during a long layover in Charlotte.
+ Free WINE!
Soooooo, now I'm here at work and hanging in there. Doing my best to turn the dreary into cheery. There might have been some Christmas music playing this morning to bring out my smile. Wishing you a wonderfully fabulous week!
