What was I thinking...

...that is exactly what I have been saying to myself ALL DAY LONG! Well, we got talked into signing up for a coed indoor soccer league, and we thought it would a great way to meet new people and get a little exercise. We were told it was the "B" league (aka-beer league), 30+ year olds and most were beginners that were just out there to have a good time. WRONG!! Our first game was last week and we got killed! From what I have heard, the other team came straight from the US men's Olympic soccer team and were out for blood. One of our players, tore his MCL and ACL and is out for the season. I know most of you are picturing an old gym where we used to all play indoor soccer. No, this is a fancy complex with 2 or 3 turf fields so clearly these people are serious.

We have our 2nd game tonight at 10:15pm. I will probably wear my pj's to the game since it will be past my bedtime. My husband is traveling for work, so I be representing the family name...not lookin so good for us. Let's hope I can walk tomorrow since I'm supposed to catch a flight in the morning.

On a positive note-My friend, Jenny, is coming to support her husband and will be bringing the team capri suns and orange slices. That might be the highlight of my entire night!


Here goes nothing...
