GOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!

So I played indoor soccer for the first time ever last night. I have played soccer in the past, way past. I played when I was eight and then again ten years ago my sophomore year in high school. Since then I have not played even recreational soccer. Maybe with my kids in the yard but that has been it.

I am supposed to be an official sub. I know, I know very prestigious! Well I was so excited to just have an opportunity to play. If someone on the team drops out then I'm next one on the roster. It just so happens that last night they needed their official sub! That's right, me! It was so much fun! I scored my first soccer goal ever!!!!!!! Yeah, I might have been playing goalie, and I might have scored on myself and it might have been a goal for the other team but it was my first goal ever!!!

While I was out there running around I noticed that my hamstring was starting to hurt, rather badly. Which is ironic because I was there because Misty, Had been tender after practice the other day. She showed up and played but they had another lady who was hurt, so they needed me. Anyway, by the end of the game, I was sore. And the last few minutes of the am I truly did think I was going to puke. It was so great. I went over to Misty's husband who was holding their Tyler to say hi and I was teasing Ty asking him why he was looking at me so funny and Phil said it was because my face was so red. It was, bright red just like a tomato. It was pretty funny. (actually my face stayed red the entire drive home, 30 minutes, how out of shape am I.)

I had such a blast last night and on my way out I found out that someone is going on vacation for two weeks and needs me to come play for her! Yea! I am so excited. Can you tell? This morning I wasn't nearly as sore as I thought I was going to be. Let me state that I do hurt EVERYWHERE but it sorta feels good. And I do know that means lots of great things are happening to my muscles right now.

I'm looking forward to playing. It's so nice to be out doing something, running around and just being around other women. There really is a great group on our team! It's really fun to be playing with Misty. We spent so much time together in High School and even though she lives near me again I haven't seen her nearly enough. It's great to see her and talk to her and have fun together again!

Lucky. I apparently need to move back to Washington so I can be second official sub.

Hey - we scored the first and the last goal. We don't have to tell them about anything else that happened in between! =)

You're right! I think we should get like thre points for scoring first....

Wish I could be there to play with you guys. I guess I'll just have to settle for a few hours of hangout and taco soup.
