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!
