Yep. Another of my newly acquired gigs this year is coaching Miss M's basketball team. This is wrong on so many levels.
Firstly, I've never played basketball, and don't really know the rules. Secondly, Miss M is in Grade 5 - they didn't have enough players for the Grade 4-5 team, so she's been pushed up to the 6-7 team. I'm worried the "older" girls won't involve her, because she's "not one of them". I hope I'm just being silly, our school has wonderful students - but girls can be real cows sometimes. Thirdly, I've taken on being the "Uniform Shop Lady" (taking up at least 2 days a week) and Parent Rep (hopefully the other parent will do most of the organising, and I'll just be there for moral support) for Miss M's class as well this year, then there's reading with H-Man's class on Tues & Thurs afternoons.... that is, on top of all my normal work with our Company. Don't forget Girl Guides, Church, Sunday School, Basketball practices & matches, and I might just get to have the odd coffee with a girlfriend every now and then?!!
And I wonder why I can't sleep?!!! I went to bed around 1 last night, finally fell asleep around 2ish. Mr T's phone rang at 230, waking me up - I think I finally dozed off around 430am, and had to be up by 7, to be at school by 830am for our first basketball practice. My stomach is churning. I really don't want to be Coach....but no one else will do it, and I was kind "told" by the School office that I'd be fine.
