Spent a quite new years eve at home with my hubby and football on the TV. Don’t have a desire to go out in the craziness anymore and that makes the hubs very happy. He cooked the blackeyed peas and we shared a bottle of Asti. Barely made it to midnight though because I had to work and was up at 5 am.
I have spent some of the holidays reflecting, regretting, and resolving things with my life. I am realigning my priorities and taking steps back on activities that have been in direct conflict with family. I have taken a complete break from my roller derby during the holidays and it will start back up on Monday.
I know that it has consumed an enormous part of my time over the last couple of years as I have volunteered for multiple positions and worked very hard to become a better player. I am still working hard to be the best athlete I can be by working with a trainer and working on my nutrition.
I have tryouts tonight (Jan 11) and am ready to hit is as hard as I can. I do not have other duties so I can focus on my try out, my game, and performing to the best of my ability. Regardless of the outcome I am very happy with how I have progressed these past 6 years. I will be trying to make the travel team and a home team but will be happy with where ever I land. The home teams are new for this season and it is an exciting year for my league. We have new people, new leadership and lots of awesome things to show the public this year.
I will be inviting everyone to come out and watch me and my teams play. It is family friendly and lots of fun to watch, so I hope to see you there!
