It's 4 am and I can't sleep. I'll probably pay for it tomorrow, but for now, I got sick of tossing and turning. If I was graceful about the tossing and turning, I would be fine, but I'm not and I swear I wake Jake up, every time I do it. My hip hurts, but it's my own fault. If I actually took my pain meds and did my physical therapy, it wouldn't hurt as bad. However, I'm not comfortable taking too many pain meds. I get that from my Grandma along with not doing physical therapy. (I'm suppose to help her with hers, but let's just say, we haven't done it since the begining of August)
I'm also NOT suppose to play volleyball, but since there are only 8 girls on the team, I kind of have to play back to them.
We've been at volleyball for a month now, and so far we've played in 4 games. The first one was a tournament, so that doesn't really count, except to get the jitters out of the way. I really do enjoy coaching volleyball, but I've had to learn to curb my competiveness because in a small school you take what you can get, and with so little students, there are other comminments that cause them to miss practice or even some games. I try hard not to rip into them, but sometimes it slips. For instance, I had 1 girl tell me she was going to miss a game because of a prior commitment that she said she would do months ago (I think) and then when I mentioned it too the team, that she was going to miss a game, another girl said she might miss it for the same reason, that's when I threw the fit......and told her No she can't miss it. (I haven't heard from her parents yet, but it still might happen)
The kids are doing fine, Peyton likes school and is enjoying it, he has 11 people in his class grades 4-6, Kyrah also loves school, and is doing much better this year with her emotions (I swear last year it was like living with a teenager) and her work. Jacen wanted to go to school the first day, but that ended on the 2nd day. He's fine once he gets there, but the mornings are horrible and I have to threaten to send him in his pj's. One day last week, he said to me "why do we have to go to school everyday, except Saturday and Sunday" Kyrah and Jacen are in the same class with 9 kids grades 1-3. Still I wouldn't move for the world, I love it here, and if anybody wants to move here we would gladly accept kids in the school.....hint hint.
Scheyer is also doing good and is enjoying his time alone with mom and dad. With me working too, Jake is alone with him from 10 to 2, and I have him from 2 to 3:30 (he usually naps, so basically I'm not with him alone) but I don't work everyday. At 3:30, Grandma Arleen watches him and the others while I'm at practice. They are in school all day, and then go to grandmas house and don't get to their own house until 6. Although Grandma does take them over alot of the days or to the playground. t This is the reason I don't coach basketball anymore because it makes it a very long year. I still get to see the kids when I'm working at the school. It's Jake I don't see a whole lot.
Well it's now 4:30, so I'm going to try to get some sleep. We shall see, it's so smoky here that my allergies are crazy. The good thing is it isn't affecting Peyton at all because he's not allergic to smoke (which is weird because his allergies affect his breathing). He's allergic to grass, but there isn't much due to it being so dry, so he's fine.
