- Sweden Day 2 well almost 3 now RANT
- June 26th, 2010
I crashed on my 2 hour down time period instead of exploring.
I arrived in Texas to finish some paperwork on Wed night.
Thursday morning went from Austin to Newark then Newark to Sweden landing Friday morning around 7am. While leaving Texas my sun glasses fell off my head and were crushed by the time I turned around to find them.
The flight was much longer than I remembered it.
The experience is awesome, I am running on little sleep, PMS, migraine from not having sunglasses (and refusing to buy a pair for $100), foreign football organizations, US football organizations, at least 30 Type "A" women, coaches, photographers, busses that don't show up, foreign football organization that ruled no alcohol during the women's world championship, then moved meeting dates and times of meeting, then some staff moved practice times without coordinating with me, now I get to go sit at the field for an hour with a trainer that the coach asked me to have show up at the start of the former time, and some other amazing uncordinated crap that goes with so many people so little sleep stress to win the first ever women's world game, and I am typing this at 215am when I need to get up at 6am, so another unrested day ahead and its game day. I have been shuffling schedules, begging for free meeting space, free anything for the team, then be told I need to run with the punches better.
I am hoping that winning tomorrow will take some of the sting out of how I feel now.
I strongly feel at this time that this will either cure my football addiction 100% or I will be uncurable.
Sweden is awesome! All green and alive. The food is all fresh and clean and healthy - I might have a problem coming home and eating crap. My clothes are already looser since Wed when I left. The bed although small is very comfy, I can walk any where or hop on the subway from my hotel.
I am going to attempt a nap before I have to get ready to go to the field.
Sorry for any typos it is late...
