We are getting more snow on a Saturday night…it’s crazy and it’s March 1. We are suppose to be getting warmer but this week will still be in the teens I think all week.
I know I’m ready to feel the sun shine down on my face. That feels almost as nice as having a jam session with great harmony guitars at musicians friend…you get the right people and the right instruments, you will have a great night!
I have sat for the last 3 days in basketball games and for the last few weeks I have started analyzing everything. It’s not in a negative spin just trying to figure out in my own mind why we react to life as we do. Yeah so my mind is in overdrive and right now I’m not sure how to cut it off.
My point to all of this is to talk about the referees we had at our games this week. We had probably 3 that were just annoying and I don’t think they cared at all. It showed too. It showed in how they ran up and down the court, it showed in how talked to the boys, how they call a foul, (you couldn’t hear what they were calling), and the main thing I don’t think they won’t feedback. It is my understanding that if there is a problem it’s an unsolvable problem. That’s just not right.
So the second game of the night proved to be a good one also. We were ahead by 12 points in the first half but fell a little lax. But we pulled it out for a win with 2.4 seconds to go and my oldest threw a baseball pass in full court to the center, who tipped it to a guard to the side of them, he faked then went up with the shot and SCORED!! We win the game. It couldn’t have been that close but it was and they pulled it out.
By the end of the day I needed a suboxone treatment for myself. My stomach was upset with all the drama through the day.
AND that was just the first day. We are just getting started. We have 2 more days of games.
We are having Regionals in our town this week…it’s huge. I want to say like 50 teams, all homeschoolers. Our town is enjoying the revenues from the games and families.
We were ready for our first game and it was a great one. Our boys played so good but ended up losing by one point in overtime.
I felt really bad for our boys. I still can recall how it feels as a player.
Let’s talk more effects from great tc-electronic effects at musicians friend. Our electric guitar player for our 2nd service just purchased a pedal to go with his amp. He is still getting used to the system and it’s going rather well.
I love the sound he gets from it. The reverb is tremendous and works well with our band and I love the sound! There are times when on my acoustic the reverb lingers and it can cause problems but for the most part I can tame it down.
These men we have been spending quite a bit of time with all in the name of basketball. This is what they look like in the morning. A little scary if you don’t know them otherwise they big teddy bears! The one on the left is the assistant coach and the other one is the dad of two of the players. They both are wonderful guys!
We need a really good electric guitar player to come along our way. I played my Taylor as an electric through a processor but for the enormous sounds you need exciting malekko-heavy-industry effects at musicians friend for that!
The sound I came up with was ample but not enormous. Then the other issue is my playing. I’m not electric, I’m acoustic. I have been for 30 years.
Sometimes I feel I can do nothing right. Yes I know I’m wrong but at times those feelings are so strong, I feel inadequate about everything. Sleep helps me along with praying God’s truth.
We had Bible Study today. We are doing a James MacDonald study. It’s our first time with him, we normally do Beth Moore. It is a nice change.
Let it ring through the classic bose sound mobile at musicians friend that we are champs of the state. Penetrating through the speaker would be the song “we are the champions my friend.”
It’s amazing the technology of today and how they get sound to go from one device to another. I would love to watch an episode of How You Made It so maybe I could understand the wonderful technology.
Well the weekend is over and many lessons were learned, at least I hope I learned them. It’s mainly learning to know that all of us are different and our circumstances in life are what made us so different.
We have several families in our home school network and at these tournaments we have to eat, sleep, and play together and there are times where we might tend to break the nerves of each other only if we are not honest and work out what bothers us.
We work best as a family if we are honest at most things and the other 25% should be kept between me and God.
