This life is not for everyone.
Jason became a coach August 2003. We became Coyotes and have been Coyotes since then. We love this town and most of the people in it. I know that most coaches move around many, many times, but after spending 8 years here, I can’t imagine being anywhere else.
Jason coaches football and baseball – the lifeblood of South Texas, which means he is busy from August until November (hopefully, one of these seasons we will make it to December) and then he gets most of December and January off. Baseball season always starts around my birthday at the end of January and goes until May (one of these seasons we will be playing in June).
We usually have just enough time together in the offseason before we start getting on each other’s nerves from so much togetherness and then it’s time for the next season. It works for us, except for the nights at home when I’m trying to cook dinner for just H and me.
Take tonight for example. There was supposed to be a baseball scrimmage, but they decided to postpone until tomorrow because of the low temperatures tonight. We made plans to go and watch the boys’ soccer game, but then Jason called me this afternoon and said they were going to practice the freshman and JV tonight, so our plans have changed again. It’s something that you don’t really ever get used to. Now I’m trying to figure out what H and I are going to do for dinner.
Tomorrow H and I have tickets to see the Houston Dynamo Soccer team play FC Dallas in Corpus Christi. We are taking one of Haley’s friends with us, since the scrimmage has been moved to tomorrow. We will have a good time anyway! It’s something we know how to do well. 🙂
