It is so crazy. I created a tournament bracket for all of us from church to play together. I made my initial picks and then changed them and then changed then and then changed them one more time. Each time I changed was because a heard a different report from someone about a team.
Then I waited for today to come. I planned my day so that I could set my computer up at work and watch off and on as I worked on stuff for the dinner and a show. It was a great set up and some great games. I stopped to let the girls practice their song and then I was back to watching again.
My UNC-Ashville Bulldogs were a sixteen seed and played their hearts out today and almost beat the first seeded Syracuse. I was really impressed as I was driving home listening to the game. When I got home I warmed up a TV dinner, and now I sit with one game on my laptop and one on the TV.
I was so engrossed in the Wichita State vs VCU game that I was nervous at the end when Wichita State had a chance to tie it. So far they are my only wrong pick.
It is so crazy but I love it. I wish that I could get as excited at other things in my life as I do when the tournament is on. If I could get as excited about eating right or losing weight. If I could get as excited about writing so that I could write a book. There are so many ifs. I think it is time to make one of those a reality. God has given me gifts but it is up to me to choose to use them to the best of my ability. I think I shall do that!
I am going to continue to watch March Madness and enjoy it but after my hectic three week span, I am going to create a little madness of my own. Let the fun begin!
