Visited my family in Miami and hung out w/ Agustin and Meli, had a couple extra roomies for the month, smacked some folks around at the running/skating of the bulls in New Orleans, celebrated my sister’s birthday, and acquired my first serious bruise in roller derby – on my BUTT. yowza!
Scrimmaged in San Antonio, HRD Luau, cousin’s wedding ceremony in Punta Cana, DR, and school is back in session with a new group of geometry kiddos/student aides.
My just-married cousins came to visit Houston, lots of TX suffering due to the drought, celebrated my parents’ birthdays in Dallas with my sister, skated in my first bout on an out-of-town team, and shortly after i was drafted to the BOSSES.
Celebrated many a loved one’s birthdays, acquired my 2nd nasty derby injury, partook in some pumpkin carving [angry birds are a friend’s], juiced for 3 days, caught up on True Blood, played Katniss for Halloween, and participated in my team’s fundraiser.
Pupsitting for a dear friend continues, vendor at the Austin Craft Riot holiday show, helped set up the staff Thanksgiving luncheon, participated in my first Warrior Dash, and visited my family in California for a wedding [as well as brother in cemetery].
Found a puppy at work [and then found her a home :)], played in 2 holiday bouts [and won twice!], knit a scarf for the first time in years, traveled to Peru with Daniel’s family [where we explored ruins, hiked for far too long, and hung out with some llamas], spent Christmas with my family in Miami, paid off my car!!! and returned to Houston for New Years 🙂
