Look who is back from retirement...

Last night was time to dust off my racquet and get back out on the court. It wasn't pretty. I have not played for a minimum of 7 months plus 9 months of pregnancy and who knows how long before that!

I had my first tennis practice with my team last night and realized I AM WAY OUT OF MY LEAGUE! We are some really high team like A3 or something. I really hope not, maybe we are A5... and maybe that's something I should have asked before getting my butt kicked last night. Anyway.... it should be fun... in a challenging, defeating kind of way. :) My first match is this Sunday. YIKES.

I probably should just audit this season... you know, I'll bring my notebook and take notes, show up to all the practices but not play the matches! Kidding of course, but that's how I felt last night. I'm glad I'm back in it though, I love the game.

now i just need jeff to sit off the mixed team for awhile so we can do a mixed team together but we have the "grand canyon" as a gap between our skill levels!! HA HA

You girls are funny! At least you play on high level teams...I won't even say what level my ALTA team got dropped to. So sad!! Our goal is to be the best of the worst!

I think that is a very positive way to look at it, kari!! Because sometimes in life, that is the best motto!!

Good luck tomorrow! I was just wearing my Lyco tennis sweats the other day (yes I know they are now ancient, but they still look like new some how).
