This is a blog about nothing.
This blog is about the trials and tribulations of a sarcastic, married 31 year old girl who is trying to navigating through life.
It will have snippets of life be it being a middle child of 3 girls, her new marriage, her family, her cats, work, running (or trying to), or her DIY challenges(and hopefully successes).

Words for Wednesday : Softball
Yesterday I went to the gym, did a little C25K, and then the Body Works Class.
Apparently there is another girl in the class that is on the Dreadmills before class. And I mean, really, why not? You already had to get up early for the class, what's an extra 35 minutes on a Dreadmill?
After class I was feeling energetic and thinking I would run outside before softball since our coach person scheduled a scrimmage at 7:15pm. I don't work/play on this team near home, so that means I will hang out at work until 6:30pm to head on over.. I never went running. I floated on the Internet instead.
At any rate. I got my money for the shirts, the league fees and went. We were completely unorganized. That makes me bonkers. We spent about 3 minutes (low balling) before we went to the field each time, trying to figure out who goes where. Super annoying, and pretty embarrassing. At the end of it, I said I would email everyone and ask their positions so I could compile a list to make it easier on future games. (Please note, I worked with the 'coach' 4-5 years ago. I didn't think this would be a problem.) Everyone was like cool. 'Coach' didn't say no..
But he didn't say yes either.
When I sent out the email asking for everyone:
Hello fellow team mates–
I was wondering if you could email me your positions that you play,
Rank them 1st choice, 2nd choice and 3rd choice.
I will compile them in a list, so that it may be easier for our future games.
'Coach' was mad and told me to recall the message. He is a very disorganized person, and I swear I wasn't trying to be rude or overstep my bounds, as this was supposed to be a team. LONG story short, he wanted me to recall the message. I said no. He replied all to disregard my email:
Please disregard Amy’s email.
Please contact me if you have any questions/concerns about where you would like to play.
He then replied to me saying:
I am trying to make sure everyone is having fun and is treated fairly. I just don’t need you undermining everything I do. What you are doing could divide the team, and I can’t have that.
There is more, and of course I can edit how ever I want. This is my blog anyways. But that is the gist. I did apologize after his first email to me to recall the message saying I wasn't trying to upset or offend him, that I am a very detailed and organized person by nature, and had time available to do this for our team.
He gave me this B.S. back at the end saying, hey I have this with my Wife (which no one knew existed as a GF or Wife due to his overly flirtatious manners), and that he and she would be missing a couple so he wanted to let me and some other person step in for that week, would I be willing to do that?
Uh, H-to the E- to the double hockey stick - no.
I am actually just thinking about not showing up. I have little to no respect for him. I actually went to the scrimmage/practice what those feelings, but knowing that, I tried to be open to it all. He is a jerk in general, and I probably shouldn't be there. Just write my $30 as a loss.
Maybe it is all my fault for how it is all going down. The other team (being a company team) had plenty to say back in their areas about the scrimmage and dis-organization. (People talk.) They also had plenty to say while I was playing catcher waiting for the rest of the team to find their field assignments for our turn.
