Yep, just when I thought I was getting good at the whole blog thing, posting fairly often, and having more than 2 people read my posts, I just stopped. It was like I lost all motivation to post. Actually, lately I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost all motivation to do anything. I don’t know why, but I just have. Thankfully I think I can feel that motivation coming back, but it’s coming slow. I’m wondering if I can find some way to jump start it? Maybe so, maybe not, but I know I can’t keep doing nothing.
I actually had a few things come to mind this morning that I thought would be really fun, and would bring more excitement to my life. One was to try to become an official for one of the sports leagues around Auburn. I had thought it would be fun after watching some of the Adult League softball games, and then again after watching a little league football game last night. It just seems fun, plus it could bring in a little extra money, and that’s always good. Then I thought, why not try my hand at coaching? True I’ve never done it before, but if you know how to play the game, and can teach others how to play, then it should’t be that hard, right? That’s when I thought I should just do what I’ve really been wanting to do and start our own Softball team! I could coach and play. Problem is, I’m not sure if I can get enough people who would be interested in playing. Still doesn’t mean I should’t try though. If nothing else, maybe I can find another team who needs and extra player, or just go the referee route.
I also thought that what would be really fun is if Auburn had an Adult Football league… and I’m not talking flag football or two hand touch either. I mean full uniform, body slamming football. The kind everybody wishes they could have one chance to play. How awesome would that be? I did find out that there’s a Kickball league, but with our choices of team sports being Kickball and Softball, it seems pretty limited. Maybe I should look into starting a football league too… or would that be too much work?
Anyway, I do know I want to start doing more than just sitting around every day, or just watching other people have fun. I mean it’s always great to watch a good game of baseball, football, or any number of other sports, but nothing beats actually playing them. So yea, if I can get enough people interested in starting a softball team before next spring, then we’ll do it. I promise we’ll get plenty of practice, and I’ll make it as fun as I can. Just let me know if you want to play, and we’ll get this thing going!
