Waiting for the Call

6.07.2013

And we still are waiting... I feel like it is important to document these moments in our life. Yesterday was the first two rounds (and supplemental rounds) of the draft. We sat at home watching a movie and checking our Twitter feeds every so often. A few names we both recognized - guys that Adam had played these past two while we were in our courtship and then marriage - heck, Adam even made the highlight reel of the guy that got picked 2nd overall. There were a few more names that Adam knew... guys he had studied, guys from high school, guys he has played against when I didn't care about baseball, and some guys he had worked out with a few weeks ago. But knowing names just made me more anxious. In my head I am thinking, "Why the heck them? Why not Adam? Because I know that guy didn't pitch awesome against BYU..." (Aka... he didn't pitch awesome in one game the whole season, but that counts for something, right?) But the names kept rolling.

And then the tweet showed up from Baseball America - that was the last pick for the day and we will proceed again tomorrow. Adam was fine. He said he didn't plan on going that high at all. I was sad... Well are they going to call now? Do you think we will hear from anyone tonight? When do you think they will call you tomorrow? Will they call tomorrow? What if we let those good rumors get into our head and things don't pan out? I won't lie. I was sad. And I was freaking out. What if things really don't work out the way we had planned? I am so bummed out when I feel like my husband doesn't get everything he deserves. And he could tell. Adam just looked at me and said... "It's fine! This is fine... I have a good feeling about this weekend." And I looked at him and said, "Well, I just have been praying all week that I will be okay with whatever happens... so I guess I just need to remember that." He smiled and said, "Me too." Then we got ready for bed and went to sleep.

Now it is today. And here we are again. Wide-eyed and bushy tailed as we hope for the phone to ring... to be continued.

Is it weird to say you're praying for a blogger you've never met? Well I am. I was at Busch Stadium last night and it made me think of you and Adam...praying everything works out the way it should (which it will, because we serve an awesome God, right?). You and Adam are adorable. Thanks for documenting this time in your life for all of us.
