Ground hog day...

I remember watching the movie 'Groundhog Day" and that how dumb of a movie it was. It repeated itself over & over & over again. Kind of like how I feel today, when I repeat myself over & over & over again to my students, co-workers, my children and husband. I wonder if they ever listen the frist time then I would get so frustrated, just like the guy in the movie "Groundhog day". Today was our last Monday practice for basketball. We had our end of year tournament this weekend and went 1-1. We won our first game to our other feeder school that feeds into the same high school as we do. We trailed the whole game and came back with 2 minutes left and WON! I never called a time-out the entire game. I had faith in the girls they would pull it through on their own and they did. Working together and playing with heart & 100% effort will win you many ball games. Even though its a loss, sometimes you can handle a loss pretty well when your know as a coach and players know you gave it all. Way to go Lady Bulldogs! Saturday's game was a different story, we played a team that hasn't lost a game all year. Which it tough to do as well but they had a great team. At least we only got beat by 20 and not 40 like others did. After the game on Saturday, I took Cora shopping to Justice, her favorite store. She had J-buck cards she wanted to use that she had received at Christmas. She went with me to my game on Saturday and learned to keep the book. At the age of 9 and she knows how to keep book, most coaches don't know how to keep the books. She is always a joy to have on the bench with me. While sitting and learning its nice to see her smiling face and to listen to her plays and ideas for the game of basketball. I think its important and as a mother that I take time to listen to her questions in regards to the game, a bad call or why did that player do that? How was that a foul? the lists goes on. We got home from a good day of basketball and shopping. I tried to lay down and take a nap but surprise I couldn't. Botos didn't have a problem, he was out! slept until 7 or 8. I laid, played on my phone for a bit, close my eyes and then a kid would come in and Cora would show me a new hair do she did on a doll. The kids were good about letting us lie down and rest. After a week of being sick, my body needed to rest. Sunday was Superbowl with NE Patriots and Seattle Seahawks,,,, what a game! We went down to the RV ball room and watched the game with friends from the park. We popped popcorn for everyone. It was nice to get out and enjoy others company, cold drinks and eat some great food. Also Cora had a ball game and they defeated last year's first place team, both teams were undefeated, now the Roadrunners are the only undefeated team. She scored 2 point, so proud of her! Monday rolled around and it has been a long day. Both kids basketball practices got cancelled which were fine by me. I had a roast cooking in the crockpot ands so sides is all i cooked. Jantz completed his homework and read to me. he is becoming quite the reader. Cora is still having a hard time with fractions in math but who doesn't !! I still don't get fractions... lol. I'm so proud of my kiddos, they are growing up on me and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Well, talked to my parents today, always enjoy that. Even though things aren't going well at home, I just hope they know I miss them and love them dearly. My dad's dog Peedy died, he was well over 10 years old. Sad week at the Moore household. I wish we were closer to family but someday we will. Just hate being this far away when tough times arise. Until next time... mamabotos
