Weekend of nothing

The weekend is over. Thank God. I have been bored out of my gourd since getting back from Plainville Thursday night and the Mid-Continent League track and field meet.

The MCL meet was a good day. Even though it was a little warm and a little too humid for my taste, it was all in all a fine day. I stayed the whole meet, which began at 3 and didn’t get done until 8:40. My longest day at a meet other than the state meet all year. Again, I stayed until the very end for Peggy Cox, since Caitlyn ran in the 4×400 relay. She set a personal record in the 100-meter dash in finishing second and won the 200 before helping Norton win the 4×400. The Bluejays won the girls team championship and Smith Center won the boys.

Originally, I was going to travel to Beloit for the North Central Activities Association meet Friday, but I was wiped out from Thursday. I stayed in the whole day. I also stayed in all of Saturday, when once again severe weather was forecast, but never came to pass.

I did get out of the house Sunday. Made a run to Walmart in Hays to stock up on things my parents will need when they get home later today–milk, bread, orange juice. Also got things for myself.

I’ve got to take out some more trash and finish tidying things up before they get home at 1. They left May 6, arrived in New Orleans the afternoon of May 7, and stayed through Saturday night.

I’ve got a lot of writing to do before Tuesday evening, when I go to Smith Center for the annual athletic banquet. I missed last year because it conflicted with the NCAA track meet at Russell, but I usually go.
