I need to step away from baby talk for a day I think.
So I won't mention that I confirmed yesterday that both women at school who got married significantly after me are both noticeably pregnant. Good for them : /. And I won't talk about the fact that my temp dropped today and that this cycle is just about over. Good riddance. I hate this cycle anyway....
Let's talk about the fact that I am a Champion! No, really. My indoor soccer team won the playoffs last night. It was quite exciting. The first game was competitive but we won 2-0, a very low score for indoor. But the second game was against our arch-nemesis the Yellow team! I hate that team. A lot.
They scored first and second, both on mistakes we made. There were also 2 blue cards issued in the first 5 minutes (where a player is ejected for 2 minutes, kind of like hockey). The second blue card foul was committed against me because this girl checked me into the wall. Ouch. I might have called her an F'ing Biyatch. Whoops! (Totally out of character for me. I was pissed!).
By half-time, we were up 4-3 after scoring some awesome goals, one right after another. I had the assist on one : ). We worked super hard to keep them from scoring the tying goal, but we got lazy for a second and they scored with about 2 minutes left, which took us too....penalty shots!
I really did not want to take one of the penalty shots. I can make them occasionally, but the last time I missed, I re-played the shot over and over in my mind for at least the next 24 hours. I can be pretty hard on myself. So the plan was for me to go last. First shot, in! Second shot in! Third and Fourth - not in. It's now 2-2. We make our last shot, they miss....AND WE WIN!!!!! It is kind of exciting even though it's just a co-ed YMCA league.
Today I can't move my neck, I have turf burn on my thigh, a scrape on a bruise on each arm respectively, an ankle that is slowly turning blue....and a Champion t-shirt! Woo Hoo! Hopefully I'll still be able to play in my other league tonight!
Thanks for reading my totally un-baby-related stress-relieving recap : )
How do the rest of you stay in shape?
