i have a couple funny stories to share about skating.
a couple days ago i went for a practice with daniel. i was trying to see how fast i could skate, try jumping, and practice some different stops.
at one point i tried this one stop that requires turning backwards and then stopping on your toes. it’s called a “tomahawk
anyways, as soon as i turned backwards daniel shouted, “look out!” and i see a biker heading my way. so i do the whole backwards running in place thing for a split second and crash down to the grouuuuund. it hurt, but it wasn’t too bad. my wrist guards helped. i bruised my elbow, but that’s it 🙂
[i don’t have elbow pads yet because they didn’t have any smalls!].
the bruise is that purple looking shadow. haha about the size of a half dollar.
the second story made me “LOL.” i was skating osa around the block and this TINY chihuahua [which we have encountered many times] comes bolting behind us, barking like crazy. osa was tugging, but she’s good and so we continued on our way…i look back and there’s a truck waiting for the chihuahua to get out of the way…so i mean…i had to help it, right? 🙂
i let osa go after the chihuahua. the tables have turned! that little tike was terrified!
and me and the guy in the truck had a good laugh.
btw, i have nothing against tiny dogs…but they sure have something against my giant dogs!
other than some skating and professional development today [which continues through friday and saturday-eek!], i came home and did a bunch of sewing! hooray!
don’t mind the dogs and dog toys sprawled on the ground 🙂
p.s. giveaway coming SOOoooOOn 😀
p.p.s. anyone else adore these shows?
i love how netflix always suggests “strong female leads” based on my rentals 🙂
