Volleyball? Volleyball.

I am sitting in my chair of awesome on a Sunday morning while a butternut squash & couscous stew simmers on my stovetop. I would be lurking around, making sure it’s not exploding, but my body is completely drained of all energy and strength after yesterday’s EPIC tournament (the first I played with C. in a while!). I left my house for it at 7:30 in the morning, and only got home at around 6 in the evening…in all fairness, at least 2 hours of that time was travel time, but ooooh, the rest of it was volleyball. It was a reverse 6s tournament hosted by one of the local clubs, the Ottawa Fusion, and for my first reverse 6s tourney, I had THE most fun. Basically, there is no rotation, just a serving order; men can only hit from behind the attack line and can’t block. PLUS, it was played on a women’s net, so I had all the fun in the world blocking the ladies and the boys. Whee! I am pretty sure I crushed the soul of a 17-year-old boy by blocking him twice in one game, so I feel a little bad, but otherwise, VICTORY. Also, as a result of all this blocking, I ended up with this:

That’s my left forearm. Yes, that is swelling. In any case, we won the consolation round (WHAT UP) and took home sweet shirts and volleyballs. Yesssssss.

In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have gone to the gym this morning, as I have a dance class and coaching this afternoon. Whoops. I’m going to go be comatose now.

Bis später!

P.S. Watch this video. Why? A) It’s Epic Meal Time. B) My friend’s in it. INSTANT RESPECT.
