Corona Virus Quarantine Day #172: Today was a 2020: September 8, 2020:
Today was a 2020 for many reasons. Some I’ll disclose, others I’ll keep to myself. The good news is that I’m laughing about it…because that’s all you really can do at this point.
I have much to be grateful for and I’m keeping my focus there.
But so we can all laugh together….here are some of the highlights…
I guess I should start by pointing out that yesterday it was 90 and today it was 55. So that’s different. I should have known with the drastic weather change something wicked was headed this direction.
My afternoon started with an email that our league schedule that has been set since November changed. Completely. So that’s fun. I’ve been working for weeks to schedule games that I now need to move. Also, one of our matches was scheduled on a day that half of my team will be gone on an overnight retreat. So that’s also fun. I have a lot of free time to manage rescheduling all these matches. So I’m excited about all that goodness that’s laying in front of me!
Today we were hosting a JV/V tri tonight at St. James. One of our basketball goals would not go up. If this basketball goal was unable to go up, one of the courts would not be playable. Good times. GOD bless Mike Medina who worked for a very long time and hand cranked that goal up so we could play.
As it turns out, it’s a really good thing he did, because as we were warming up to start our match the cable in our net snapped and the net broke. We were unable to fix it so our net was unplayable. If the floor had spontaneously burst into flames, I’m not sure it would have been shocking. 2020 is one for the books my friends.
Even with a broken net and only one playable court…with some quick thinking we were able to get Mill Valley to agree to take our JV matches over so that those poor kids match didn’t get cancelled. We sent our table workers and referees over there and everyone was as understanding as you could ask them to be. That’s 100% 2020. In other years there would have been upset, irritated, inconvenienced people but at this point we are all so used to the crazy of this year, everyone rolled with the punches.
I suppose we should celebrate that! That is a victory in itself.
Great news…we got our matches in, both JV and Varsity. Better news, we both won our matches. A huge thank you to the officials who had to drive over to Mill Valley and 100% rolled with the punches.
A huge thank you to Mill Valley who took on hosting an event they weren’t planning for and a major shout out to Ruthie and Amber (SJA employee’s) who also drove over to Mill Valley to make those games possible.
I work with awesome people. Another thing to celebrate.
So I’m going to head to bed and be grateful for all the goodness in my life and all the good people around me.
Tomorrow, I will solve the schedule crisis and the net debacle. For now, I’m just going to be grateful and chalk this day up to 2020.
