Ball

I'm on a softball team now. It's a city league, and we play Tues and Thurs nights. Tuesday was our first game, and I only know a couple of the girls (graduating med students). But it was of course a lot of fun. I am sore today, and we play again at 8:30 tonight if it's not raining.

Erica took me to Academy Sports to re-outfit me. I got batting gloves, shorts (can't wear khakis forever, Katy), and new cleats. I haven't worn cleats since high school. This is soooo exciting! I think I'll eventually need a new glove, but I'm holding off for now. I'm finally back in my sports element!

I've played on losing teams my whole life. We lost Tuesday. I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I were on some awesome team, because that almost always means people start getting serious and competitive about it. Yuck. I'd rather just get out there and have a blast. We were good my senior year, and it was still fun. Maybe I'm overgeneralizing. Anyway, I have no problem sleeping at night after a loss.

Erica and I have a TON of calls coming up for the month of May. If you don't hear from me, don't despair. For several days, one of us is on every other night. It's never as bad as that sounds, though, because when you're busy you're glad to be busy and time flies. May will go so fast, then to THE BEACH in early June.
