Soccer Home Stretch

I really enjoy soccer.  I like watching it.  I love watching the kids learn skills and become more aggressive.  I like seeing them get excited about playing well.  But at some point, I get tired of rushing out the door after school and driving all over town for games and practices.

We are in the home stretch!

Canon finished up this past weekend.  He had a tournament and the team played the best they have all season.  They tied one game and won their second.

Kieron has 2 more games.  One this week and one next week.

I'll be glad when it is done.  I'm not one of those parents who has her kids in 8 million activities.   I look forward to some down-time.  I look forward to taking a break from activities and just focusing on school and family.  But both kids have repeatedly asked about karate lessons.  I'm so cheap - I keep saying... maybe... we'll see...  I so don't want to pay for it!

I'm in love.  I may have to divorce my husband and marry this furniture set.  It is PERFECT.  I probably should not have spent the money on it... but since I saved like $1,000,000 on the loft beds that the husband built for the kids' bedroom I figured I was good to go.  I have sat in a hideous pink chair that pushes my head forward and causes me great pain in my neck.  The pink chair had to go.

Whilst walking through Target one day I saw this little gem.  Then I convinced myself that I couldn't afford it and didn't need it.  Then I felt sad.  Then I felt guilty for wanting more more more.  Then I told the husband about it and he said "buy it" (cuz that's what he does).  Then I talked myself out of it again because it costs money and I didn't NEED it.  Then I felt sad again because I really wanted it.  By the time I showed it to the husband and he said we should get it... it was not in stock at Target.  So I went online and guess what?!?  It wasn't in stock online either.  But guess what?!?  You could buy TWO chairs but not one.  The double pack was in stock but if you wanted one chair you were screwed.  Talked to the husband and he said "order it" (cuz that's what he does).  So with great guilt about buying something I didn't NEED and that cost money, I ordered it.  And it came.  And I'm in love.  IT is comfortable and doesn't push my head forward.  You can slouch down and snuggle up.  I wanted to write this post last night, but I didn't want to sit in my hard computer chair.  I wanted to sit in my NEW chair.  I love it.
