"So She Huffed and Puffed..."

...and fell down on the grass after the soccer game. :)

Holy cow, am I out of shape! At Lu's soccer game yesterday, the refs didn't show up (again). So as the veteran Soccer Mom on the team, I volunteered to be one of the line judges.

Big mistake for a heading-towards-middle-age-mom.

Running back and forth and back and forth and quick sprinting from one end of the field to the other on fast breakaways multiple times in 10 minutes isn't exactly easy when the most regular exercise you get is going up and down the stairs at work.

And here I used to think I was in pretty good shape for my age. Well, maybe I am. But then again, if I'm that winded after a single soccer game, maybe it's time to improve my definition of what I think "pretty good shape" is...

I've been considering taking the line judging ref classes for awhile now, thinking that it wouldn't be too difficult to be a line judge for my kids' games when they need a ref in a pinch. Now I'm realizing that I'd better start doing some more cardio if I'm going to be doing this on any type of regular basis!

There's obviously more to being in "pretty good shape" than fitting in your size 10 jeans, I guess. Who knows... maybe after running a full season of line judging, I'll fit back into my pre-pregnancy size 8. After all, miracles have been known to happen!

I'm Nuts... That's All There Is To It

I did something totally and completely crazy last Thursday. It's so crazy that I can't even spill it on a blog. Well, maybe I can-- in a year or so. By then hopefully enough time will have passed so it won't be as major of a thing, and I'll feel comfortable enough sharing it online with the whole world.

Okay, so I put my first two scrapbook pages up on eBay. They did miserably.


Ron came to the rescue during the last few minutes of the auctions, saying that he couldn't see me spending that many hours on the pages and not getting at least a decent price for them, so he put in the high bids for each set of pages. What a nice guy! So I just relisted them last night with a higher minimum bid to at least try to get my money/time's worth out of them.

I was really hoping that I could get a good side business going from home to help supplement my income. Oh, well. Maybe I just need to get a name for myself on eBay like some of the other scrappers have. The question is whether or not it's worth it.

Please Hit Me-- I Need the Aggravation!

I swear I have a target painted on the back of every vehicle I drive. Sheesh.

I got rear-ended *again*. I haven't even had this one long enough to get plates on it! I am SO tired of getting in car accidents... you know it's pretty sad when I've been in so many car accidents that I can't tell you what # accident this is...

In other news, it looks like Ron and I are back together again. I'm still not exactly sure how it happened, but it did. And I'm okay with it. Ever since seeing E.C. this last time, I've been able to put that relationship completely to rest. He no longer tugs on my heartstrings. So now that I'm back together with Ron, things seem different. I don't know how to explain it, but it just *is*.

Love is confusing.
