My First Love


Sorry Jack, I'm talking about volleyball. Spring Season started tonight. My team, "Vertically Challenged" is so far, undefeated: 6 for 6 games. I can't quite describe how much I enjoy being part of this "old-person volleyball team", as Meg used to call it. It has given me a time and a place to be someone a little different than I am in my everyday life. I love that, and I so appreciate Jack for letting me do this. I know he sees how geeky I am about it and laughs a little at my excitement over winning games or stuffing some jack*** who called out, "free ball!" when I came up to hit. See what I mean? I hardly recognize myself when I get on that court, but I think, as my hero by-day would say, "it's a good thing".

Love your hair and the fact that you have this sand posted it. So glad you have a sport you love and a hubby who supports it!
