Refresh...nope. Refresh...nope. Refresh...YAY

The first thing we did this morning was to load the swim meet qualifying website to see if my daughter qualified for Districts.  No results were posted.  The next thing we did was to hit "refresh" on the swim results.  The next 250 things we did was to keep hitting "refresh" on the swim website to STILL see no results.  If you are wondering whether we are very good at clicking "refresh" the answer is, "why yes we are!"  Finally late this afternoon the long anticipated link appeared!  With nervous apprehension we clicked on the 2011 Central District Swimming and Diving Championship Qualifiers and YES!  There was her name.  She made it in all four of her events!  Of course we are all so excited.  Now she can add a fourth District Qualifier patch to her letterman jacket and she has one last chance to break the school record.  She is SOOOOO close.  The pool at The Ohio State University is wonderful so she really has a chance this Friday.  Menu for the week?  Carbs, Carbs, and more Carbs, fresh squeezed juices and extra fluids each day and lots of rest.  The District swim meet at OSU will most likely be her last swim meet of high school. Only the very best and lightning fast swimmers go onto compete at the State Championship and although my daughter is a great swimmer - states is a very long stretch. So Friday is the big day.  I think I might have to make some homemade pasta for her.  I mean what better carbs could there be than a big bowl of homemade mommy pasta?  I better get out the pasta drying racks - - I feel like I may be singing "O Sole Mio" all day tomorrow!
