Soccer!!!!!

Soccer started today! Woohoo! I was super excited, but not for this week. The first week is all conditioning stuff (which I need badly...). But after this week and next week, I am predicting about 5 girls will quit. Which would be EXCELLENT. Lots of people are really bad, and I know they aren't going to do very good. And also we have over 30 people on our team. Minus a couple of goalies... so about 29 players. 11 players on the field at a time... you do the math. Not much playing time. Last year I got 6 minutes every game. I hated it. One time I got 20 minutes, my record. But otherwise it was 6 or 7 minutes total. Bleh... boring and lame for all the work I put into soccer. Apparently our coach last year didn't think I was working as hard as I could, and our coach this year said she is judging playing time the same way. She thinks you work hard=playing time. Grrrr... so today I just about threw up a couple of times trying to make a good impression on the first day. Hmmmm wonderful :) Good way to start the season. But I am still excited to play once I am in better shape.

The first week or so is always hard, hon! Especially coming off a hard winter like we just had! You'll get back in shape in no time!

I am so bummed for you girls. I wish they would get a second coach and split the teams. That is just way too many girls for one team and I hate to see girls leave that want to play just because of the size of the team.
No smiles!

Hey, cute blog!

I hope you don't care that I'm commenting it...

But that's cool that you play soccer too. I did indoor so I'm not in that bad of shape. But I'm glad spring is starting finally.
