If we were having a glass of wine

If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that we gave up on soccer. Completely. I didn’t go to the last three sessions. I’m not upset (much) that we didn’t see it through. Bridget’s safety was more important. It doesn’t mean we are giving up sports. We are just going to be smarter about our choices. I just could make Bridget feel like this anymore.


If we were having a glass of wine, I would say I am so freaking happy flip flop weather is here. I despise being cold. If anyone complains about the heat, I might sucker punch them in the nose.

If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you I am running again and while my legs might not be happy with me, my mind is.

If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you how frustrating it is when you go into a store and try on a pair of shorts but they fall off of you. It’s frustrating because not only have you not lost weight, you’ve gained it in all the wrong places. It’s frustrating because the pair you are wearing is the exact same size you are trying on. I would ask you what type of sick trick is this?

If we were having a glass of wine, I would you that while sometimes I want the humor, the encouragement and the “it’s going to be alright from you. Yet sometimes if I send you a text that says I’m an idiot, I want you to reply: this really sucks and I’m sorry it’s so hard.

If we were having a glass of wine I would say that although Bridget wasn’t able to do soccer she was able to do this:

Following my heart, I will let her “flip over” and just enjoy the swim.

If we were having a glass of wine, I would ask you how your week was going?

    Sorry soccer didn’t work out. We didn’t have much luck with it either! It’s super hot in Atlanta and I love it. And yes, everyone around me is bitching about it. My week? So-so.

    Who needs soccer when you can do a flip in the water?? With a floatie on no less! Yay Bridget!
    I’m thrilled with flip flop weather, though I can’t stand wearing flip flops. I also need shorts, but loathe going to a store to find some that fit. Your experience is exactly why. Why can’t the industry get it together and do like they do with men’s clothes. Simple sizing, waist, inseam, and I guess with women you’d have to add hips. Is it really that hard to do?

    I completely get the give up soccer thing, we had to when Shannon was small and gave it a go, it just wasn’t her thing. 😉 WOW look at Bridget go, way to go on that back flip! Although I can not relate to the frustration of clothes falling off me 😛 I can relate to going shopping and trying on the same size of the exact same thing you are wearing, and it fits completely differently?? What the heck? Great job getting back into the running, I too and really trying to get back into shape and Alicia and I have been consistently walking and exercising every morning. FEELS SO GOOD! 🙂
