Good morning, Kitschies!!
I have some exciting news! Last night was skills test night for derby and instead of breaking my ass like I did last time...I passed!! I skated my 25 in 5 (skate 25 laps in under 5 minutes) in 4:43. I performed all the skills (stops, falls, hits, whips, etc) AND I passed the written test. Yep. There's a lot to do to become a roller girl! Funny thing is...when I started this back in August, I gave myself 6 months to pass the skills test and it's been almost exactly 6 months since my first practice!
And...I have a home! I am a proud member of DIA: Derby Intelligence Agency.
Now, that doesn't mean I'll be skating in a bout any time soon...I'm just fresh meat at this point. No. Seriously.
But... if you live in, or come visit, the Albuquerque area, you should definitely come see my team's first bout on March 10th at the Albuquerque Convention Center!! *EDIT* I've been informed that I will, in fact, be skating on March 10th!
I'll be posting here periodically about my progress with DIA and such. I can't wait to start this thing! It's been such a great outlet for me...I really needed to "find" myself. So. excited!!
OH! And one more thing. My hubs brought the boys by the clinic to say hi yesterday afternoon and Nate gave me the BEST card ever!!
When he gave this to me, I almost cried! How sweet is that?! Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, but I couldn't get it on the computer any other way at work.
OK. I'm done. Have a great Tuesday!!
