Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Thunder Rolls Away Worries

I started preparing for this weekend a week ago. I had to do a long trip for our soccer games. I was worried, practical and prepared about what to do, when to leave and trying to balance the stress.

With so many lessons about reasons not to worry, you'd think I'd stop already right? Nooo. Seems I don't learn very well.

I get anxious about going on long trips by myself with the kids. I have this feeling that I'd get lost and something might happen. I hate that feeling. If the husband is here and we were going somewhere, I have no problems with that, but for me to drive somewhere and being geographically challenged and GPS dependent, I do fight the constant anxiety that pops up!

I had made a list of all the things to do. I was going to make our food to take with us on the trip. Then I started to watch the weather. I knew it was coming.

This morning Saturday I got the email from our coach that the games will be cancelled because of all the bad weather predictions going on. As a matter a fact the storms have already started.

This is not the first game that was out of town that I've prepared meticulously for and then it was cancelled.  Why do I not learn not to worry.

So no games. I should feel a sigh of relief. But no, I instead feel a bit of a let down, maybe that's a sigh of relief in itself.

Today's theme is perfect in regards to my weekend. The Theme is: Any music related to weather or have the word weather in it. I hope I can find something.

Anddd I found this oldie!
Sweet cheese

  1. an oldie but definitely a good one. I remember when this video came out, how much he scared me in this role!
    Agh - don't you just hate it though when you get all prepared for something - you're ready! And then bah! it gets cancelled.
    LOL - that sign though. :)

    1. Hahaha how old were you :)
      Thank you so much sharing with me Rory :)

  2. Two great minds and all that jazz! And I am cracking up over that cheese sign! Love it!! Sorry you were disappointed by the games being canceled, but at least you can pat yourself on the back that you were actually ready this time! ;) Have a great week, Callie! :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by. It's amazing how weather can impact your state of mind. Sometimes it's like a reflection of what you true emotions. This song brings all that to light - also, love a good play on words - LOL!

    1. The weather does play on our emotions.
      Thank you for sharing David.

  4. Favorite song right here and you and Stacy are like-minded!
    Have a great week my friend!

    1. Thank you Naila!
      We were definitely in sync this time around :)

  5. Oh my, can I ever relate to this post - watching the weather before a road trip, being "geographically challenged and GPS dependent" and worrying. You might be interested in my March 16th, 2014 post, “Why am I Always Getting Lost” on my blog. Did you know there is an actual condition called “Directional Dyslexia”!

    1. Oh Susan I did not know that at all! That is very interesting! I'd learn more!
