HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY TO MY HUSBAND!!
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!!
*ahem*…back to the blog…
You grow up hearing about the year you’re 29. Unmarried, drinking cocktails with your best friends, middle fingers off to men. Or being 29, sipping fruity drinks while hoping to catch that man before the dreaded 30.
Since I got married at 20, I knew the above wouldn’t be my fate (9years of marriage this fall!). I also don’t put much stock in my age number as far as what I can do or my thought process. Hard to when at 19 and working, people were routinely asking me why I wasn’t in school because I looked at the most of 16.
I expected to be full on soccer mom, complete with that Bugs Bunny version mini-van. Cause if I was driving a mini-van, by golly that baby was going to be DECKED OUT COOL STYLE with Bugs Bunny. What’s Up, Doc?
Anyway, here I am. I’m in a mid-sized SUV, the kiddo is about to school and he is all boy, all into sports. He has completely begged to play tennis. The wii has carried him this far, but in the last 6 or so months, he’s really upped the begging.
So he started in tennis lessons. My husband was taught to play as a kiddo and he’s always enjoyed it. Now that son is getting into, the husband is just itching play. Yours truly is most convenient to play. Only I don’t know how to play and the husband has got to be the worst teacher on the planet.
Now I’m in tennis lessons too. Learning to play a new sport was the absolute last thing I ever expected to be doing at this age. (for the record I told the husband “get some pictures of me playing so if all else fails, I’ll get a blog post out of this. Yeah. … Lesson nearly over and he’d taken none.)
It was fun. Thank God I’ve been in the gym the last year and half or I never would have survived past 10minutes. 90-something degrees outside plus you add about 30* on top of that because of the heat absorbed in the courts. I expected to be so sore I could barely move, but I’m a good, slightly achy feeling and ready for my next lesson this Saturday!
Anything you picked up or started doing at an age you never in your life thought you would be doing?
