Late start to a late day

So much for bringing the programs for the wrestling regional to Norton Community High School early.

I ate breakfast way too early–I overindulged and almost paid for it–and I did not get up until 11:15. Lucky for me, (a) I’m five minutes from the school, (b) it doesn’t take me long to get ready, and (c) fans won’t begin arriving until 12:45 anyway. I’m in good shape.

It’s going to be hectic inside the gym today. It’s going to be non-stop for at least six hours, probably seven. All I know is I’ve got a job to do and I can’t let my focus slip. I’ve had that problem in the past, but I can’t control everything, so I just have to roll with the punches.

Peggy Cox promised we’d eat after wrestling is done today. That’s something to really look forward to.

Okay, the high school beckons. Time to scoot.
