One more time!
That Starbucks gets me every time! 1:30 a.m. and I am still up. Lucky me. Well today I decided to branch out a bit. I went to a ladies night out with gals from church and went ice skating. I actually made it through without falling down at all. I wasn't speeding around the rink I was really just trying to stay vertical. I felt like Phoebe from Friends who ran around Central Park like a ten year old girl. Well I skated around the ice rink like a 5 year old. I remember the feeling of roller skating as a kid and feeling so alive and free. The wind would blow through my hair as I skated so effortlessly to whatever Wham song played over the speakers. My skating experience tonight was nothing like that. Don't get me wrong, I had a wonderful time. But I was really just trying to make sure I didn't beat the dust. I was determined no matter how badly my chins were throbbing to not be the first of my friends to have to take a break. I kept saying, "One more time around". How this relates to Growing up in my 30's you ask? I ventured out and did something new and different. I didn't stay home because it was out of my comfort zone, I went and tried. Go me! I got to get to know some wonderful women and got to try two new things at Starbucks. Life is good. I am going to to try, "One more time" to get some sleep.
