The Waiting Game...

I was planning on posting my favorite plaid & gingham looks for Laura's Trend Spin Link Up today, but honestly... I'm just not pulled together enough to pull that off today. 

I am a bundle of nerves. I don't think I've felt this nervous going into competition in a long time. It's been at least 4 years, back when I ran my own program & coached varsity. Never in my history at SHS have I felt this out of sorts over cheerleading. On my drive in to work this morning, I contemplated why I'm feeling like such a basket case....

  • Are the girls unprepared? Nope, they know exactly what they need to do. It isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but they're 7th & 8th graders, so I don't expect perfection, I expect effort. If they step onto the mat & give 100%, I'll be happy. Although another 1st place trophy wouldn't hurt... 
  • Is it because you have to make it through a full day of work before you head off to competition? This may be a part of it. I'm used to getting on a bus at 7 am & having the whole thing over with by lunch. This day of waiting thing may push me over the edge. Say a prayer for my students that I don't snap today... 
  • It is because you feel like you have something to prove? Definitely. Our Varsity coach is going to be leaving within the next few years. I want to take over. It has been my goal since I started coaching here. All I want it to have my own program again. She has high standards & I feel like I generally meet those as her freshman coach. But do I impress her enough for her to hand over the program? A six time Sectional winning program? I don't really know. She is the queen of the poker face. I never know where I stand.
