I like to play


Ok, Mr. Sleep Whatever, why is it that all day yesterday, despite being frustrated as hell, I was not tired at all even though I'd only gotten two hours of sleep the night before? And then today, when I got a good seven hours, I am falling over dead from exhaustion? WHAT SENSE DOES THAT MAKE? I am less frustrated, more bluuuuuuuuuuuurgh pillow.

On the upside, tonight's the second night of swim team, and most of my old kids are coming back! The Millis' will be there tonight, and Theresa, the youngest, is swimming this year, so that means there will be FOUR MILLIS CHILDREN!!! Which is amazing. When I started coaching, there was only one, Alan. And after that, they've sort of been adding the next youngest sibling each year to the team. I'm sad because Theresa's the last of their kids, and after that there are NO MORE MILLIS'. Shoot. Maybe I can convince them to adopt another one each year I coach, that would be pretty sweet. Also, I got a call from Lake last night, so hopefully the Richardsons will be there, too.

I'm sure none of you care about any of that but SCREW YOU, these are friggen' AWESOME kids. I do not accept anyone onto my team that does not pass the prerequisite "Awesome Test". If you are lame? I don't care if you can swim twelve hundred yards in five seconds? You can't be part of my awesome team. It just doesn't work that way.

Okay, well, I've got to get back to work. Thanks to everyone who sent a text message yesterday, and Nikki, thanks for trying to send me one :) I appreciated it a lot, and they really, REALLY helped!
