The Depression Post

Is there a doctor in the house?

For the two of you who read this blog daily, you may have noticed that I have been slacking off a bit. (That's SLACKING off, Vinnie!) The past few weeks have been miserable - although Disney World kicked arse - and I am just really, really tired. Why, you ask?

Day work reeks. I don't know how you civilians work 8x4 (or some other despicable variation) every day of the week for the rest of your lives. Who the frak wants to wake up so early?!! After our two weeks of day work, we go to the blissfully busy 4pm x12am tour. We can sleep late and go to work with a clear head. I am in the middle of the day work tour, and I cannot stay awake. It sucks ass.

Lacrosse has become a nightmare. After sweeping through the dregs of the Philadelphia Catholic League, my kids (Northeast Catholic High School) only needed to win one game out of three last week to make the playoffs for the first time since lacrosse became a varsity sport (9 years). We lost the first game by a score of 6-2, then proceeded to fold faster than Superman on laundry day. We subsequently lost the next two games with little fight. Our last game of the season is in two hours, and if we lose that one, we would have finished the season with a seven game losing streak. Swell.

We lost Game 1 of the finals, 6-5. Our opponents (Team 22) beat us twice in the regular season, winning both games by one goal. They're good, but not unbeatable. They have one player (#41) who is NOT a "C" League player - he skates circles around our entire team, but the rest of the squad is average. The fact of the matter is that we - especially me - did not come to play last night. We had flashes of great play - Vinnie had a terrific-steal-turned goal in the second period - but bad penalties and lack of hustle is what really did us in. The finals are a best-of-three series, so if we lose on Thursday night, that's it.

Taking all of these three issues into consideration, I have not been my usual, bubbly self. I am depressed and tired, and not really all that motivated to do much. The end of lacrosse season today will help the stress, but I need to snap out of this funk before Thursday's game.

Just thought you'd like to know.
