It was a big day yesterday! Nate had his first day of Kindergarten. *sob*
He had so much fun (even though he rolled his eyes at going outside a lot) and he didn't want to leave when I went to pick him up. And he was even excited to go again today! I know *that* won't last forever, but I'm glad he had a good first two days. When it was time to line up for his class on Monday, he told me: "It's OK, Mom. You can go now." OK...does that mean I can go to my car and cry for a little while? I was good - I didn't cry...much. My mom sent me a text about being and good parent and that made me tear up. I had it coming from both side on Monday! LOL
Then, Monday night, I went to my first roller derby practice. And...OMG...it was SO much fun! Seriously. I was a lot steadier on my skates than I expected I would be - I only fell 3 times (I think *everybody* falls at least once a practice). For being my first time in anything like this, I held my own. And all the girls were so nice and encouraging. I was afraid that they would be extra hard on the noob, but they really weren't. The only places I'm *really* lacking in skills are balancing on one foot (picking up my right skate and touching across to my left hand <and visa versa> is *not* happening yet) and hitting/blocking. I am so excited to do this! I've wanted to do something more active for a while but wanted to do something different. Ya think roller derby is different enough? Yeah. Me, too.
OK. Enough of that. Now for the *real* reason you come to my blog. The pretties! I've got a good water marble for you today. Remember my last marble (it wasn't all that great)? This one made up for that one.
I want to do more water marbles, but I always have a hard time coming up with good color combos. I know I have a really nice one still waiting to be prepped. Suggestions for colors? Lemme have it!
Well, I'm going to relax tonight and do my nails with a new OPI color I picked up at Ulta yesterday. Have a great evening!
