Game-Set-Match

Can of Balls
March 2008

My iTunes: Sorry by Buckcherry

You all know I have been playing A LOT of tennis lately. I have been practicing for the past two months with my team, with friends (thanks Becky), family and with a coach...let's face it, if I could get our dog Riley to hit with me...he's be out there as well (no one is safe!).

My doubles partner Carolyn and I played today and had so much fun. This was the first game for both of us this season. My stomach was in knots but I settled in once we warmed up. The ladies on the other team were incredibly friendly and made some delicious food for all of us. The home team makes food for everyone playing on match day. We won the first set 6-0 and then the second set was a tie breaker and we won! I am still grinning!

The reward for our win? A can of balls. A great thing to have when you play three days a week I might add! The ball costs can add up quick! This shot is about as creative as I can get tonight. I am exhausted. For some reason, my shin muscles hurt! I didn't even know I had those! I am so ready for the weekend!

Tennis is sure a great feature in your life, isn't it?

I love to play tennis. I'm so so, but I really enjoy it. I miss playing... Maybe I'll get back to a place where I can play again. There are really nice courts in my community, and they are about 3 blocks away...

Good job on the win!!
