played like crap
Thursday, August 01, 2019
Annoying morning of pickleball today, just played crappily, and it affected the mood. Not sure how much of it was using a new paddle. I recently bought one of the same type as the one I've been using the past year and change, but it is obviously less worn (which makes sense, obviously), and gives me more oomph at precisely the wrong moments. So it's just a matter of playing another day or two with it, until it becomes the new normal. But the crappy play didn't really have to do with that, it was bad decision making, trying to hit shots that were ill advised, or trying to finish a point, and fractionally relaxing when I hit what felt like a winning shot, only to see the ball shooting back towards me and not being ready. Stuff like that. So I was kind of scowling by the end of the morning.
And now, I want to take a nap, partly from being tired, partly from having a bit of a headache going. I'm not aware of any plans for the evening, so I suppose I could shut my eyes for an hour and change, but it also feels like a waste of a pretty decent (low 80 degree, bright sunshine) afternoon. So that remains to be seen.
No real plans for the weekend as of yet. Something will materialize, probably. It often does. Kind of an amusing contrast with the following weekend, when it seems like I've got a couple different concerts I could go to on August 9th, and 5 potential events happening on August 10th. C'mon universe, space them out some so I could go do all the things I'd like to partake in!
