Kenny randomly came into town for Independence Weekend so I took him down to Mississippi. We saw alligators, but didn’t catch any.
Last weekend was the USASF regional meeting in Atlanta, the hump day meeting. My stay didn’t get off to the greatest start, but overall it was a good weekend. I think there was another record number of coaches attending this meeting which makes me think we are doing something right.
The highlight of the weekend was Saturday night dinner at Fogo de Chao with Jessica, Robin, Kendall, David, Kim, and Brett. If nothing else I learned to take small bites and sips when eating with Brett so I don’t spit out anything significant when he says something that makes the table erupt in laughter.
The last 7ish days have been busy. I went to a funeral on Tuesday for the previously mentioned mother of an 8th grader at David’s gym. Wednesday we left for David’s wedding in Florida. Thursday, while in Florida I talked to a couple friend that will be opening their own gyms soon and gave them a little advice. Friday was wedding day and everything turned out great. The weather cooperated, the wedding was successful, and no one made a fool of themselves at the reception. (I’ll post more about the wedding when Shane gets back from Hawaii so I can get his pictures).
The Cats played Ohio State during the reception, which the manager was kind enough to put on a TV nearby. The Cats won a close game to move on to play North Carolina for a trip to the Final Four. Saturday was a beach day. The weather started off rough, but turned out to be great. We then went to a Crawfish boil with the newlywed couple’s family, which was also a good time.
Sunday was go home day. It got off to an interesting start because of a poor decision a couple people made the night before, which I may expand on in a later post. We got back in time to catch most of the North Carolina game and see the Cats advance to the Final Four.
The Cats next stop is Houston, mine is Florida again for a 2 competition weekend.
Congratulations to David & Kendall on their engagement.
I no longer have my 859 area code phone.
I’ve been thinking about change a lot lately. I probably should say I been thinking about the lack of change because too often people want something to change, but don’t want to change anything they are doing to make that change possible.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
This quote has been attributed to a few people including Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein, but that’s irrelevant. The point is you must change your actions in order to get a different result.
