What was it that I said about every time I try to blog more regularly, something happens that I either can’t or don’t want to blog about? Yeaaaahh… suffice it to say, I would have considered residential rehab last week if I thought it would make everything less stressful. No, the real story has nothing to do with drugs or rehab, but it’s not my story to tell. So I will just say that this past week was incredibly long and frustrating.
But! This weekend was pretty good! Last night was a fundraiser show for derby, so I got all dolled up and spent the evening with my favorite ladies. I cut out a bit early (11pm) to come home and rest up though because this morning’s practice was WFTDA testing! The next opportunity to test is not for another month, so it was imperative that I was well rested (and not hungover) so that I could perform well. It worked! I passed all of my tests, including that dreaded jump, and my endurance laps which I finished with an additional 3/4 lap to spare. Woohoo!! So that means I am now approved to not only scrimmage with my team, but I can also scrimmage with other teams if the opportunity presents itself as well as participate in a bout!
I went from practice to lunch with a bunch of the derby folks, and then home to bake some cookies. Then it was off to my Grandma’s for our annual Halloween dinner. For the last several years, my mom and my brother and I all go over to Grandma’s for dinner (sometimes with card playing, but not tonight) and we hand out the candy to her trick or treaters. It was a good night.
Now I’m home, and thinking about going to bed early. But not before I give you guys a view of my whole costume, as promised last week.
