can't...stop...whining....

I am now reduced to very few days of blogging. I guess it's okay, so that I might actually come up with something interesting to say.
I had less than a spectacular weekend. Saturday started off with Peter's football game at 10am. The game did not go well. Actually, it was HORRIBLE. Not only did the team lose 27-8, but Peter did not get much playing time. All week he had been practicing at his usual spot, which is first string defensive right tackle. But on Saturday when they called for the first string defense and Peter went in, the coach sent him back out because he had replaced Peter's starting position. Even that wouldn't have been a big deal if he had just TOLD Peter ahead of time. Peter was upset and pouted for most of the game because he didn't get to play much defense. Then when he finally got to go in for a series he didn't do very well. It's really hard for Peter to not be the the best at everything. It's good for him I know, but it was hard to see him so upset. Peter was not the only kid whose position was changed for the game and the kids seemed a little confused about what they had done "wrong" and why they lost their positions. So I am a bit irritated at the coach right now.
Then there was Nebraska's loss to USC...UGH!!!! That is all I can say about that.
Yesterday was a little better, we just took it easy most of the day. I did help the boys clean their room and that made me feel like some order was being restored to our home.

Two losses in one day - no fun! And now you live in s.c. Glad to know you're still a Husker fan! ;-)
