Today actually went pretty smoothly.
We went shopping at Costco, the pet store and a local store, and while we were slowly roaming the isles of the local store I remembered I was supposed to play soccer in less than an hour. EGADS! We booked it out of the store, heading home. And while the boys unloaded the groceries, I got myself ready and headed out.
I arrived with 2 minutes to spare. Me, being me, managed to hurt myself on the way TO the field in my excitement to play. I’m pretty sure I pulled the quad pretty bad. The team was great, they understood. I was the stand-in; some stand-in! The first half I was just a place holder, letting the other girls on the team come off for a drink and catch their breath and for the second half, I was slightly more useful as a goalie. Mind you, I’ve NEVER played goalie, but it gave them an extra player on the field to trade out with. We won, not much to do with me, but I did block two (missed two, but they were clear across the goal and I probably would have missed them anyway… or at least that’s how I’m going to remember it – HA!)
It is so hard to watch and not play!
So tonight, I’m sitting here with an ice pack, hoping I won’t have to go in to the doc’s tomorrow. Great job ace! I guess cleaning up the garage tomorrow is out – again! GRRR
We came under budget with the groceries, so I bought a little fun item for the girls. They’ll love it! Ok, probably not, but I will and really, isn’t that why we buy our pet’s stupid people stuff?
My sewing room sounds like it’s been pushed back a bit, but tomorrow I’ll be getting phone calls, paper work and some knitting done. All things I can do while sitting.
