Death Row Rumblers Intro

This is a photo from our official intro at the championship bout on August 27. We were all really nervous before we skated out, but the other teams all lined up around the track and cheered us on like crazy! It was so awesome! A total adrenaline rush!

I enjoyed this bout so much, it was just so cool to skate out and hear cheering! I can't wait until we start bouting!

My weekend was fun. It officially started on Thursday night when I went out to Ben's Half Yard House for a Derby Karoke fundraiser.
I have never been very fond of karoke, but I had an awesome time.
I got my hair done Thursday afternoon and the guy who washed out my color (John) was super cool so I asked him to go.
I went with D and John showed up which was cool and fun. He is very high energy! We ended up staying out until around 2, so I was really dead tired on Friday and had to go to a dinner with J for a work birthday thing. It was pretty fun, but by the time it was over I was ready to crash. We got home around 9:00 pm and I just planned on taking a nap. I fell asleep and didn't wake up until around 3:00 am! Long nap, but I was really tired and went right back to sleep. I think I ended up sleeping for like 12 hours or something.
I did a lot of sewing and no knitting over the weekend. I will be glad when the sewing project is done. It's a lot more work than I anticipated. I always seem to volunteer for things that sound like fun and they usually turn out to be a major pain in the ass before I am done.
I swear I will post some pictures later. I tried the other day and could not get them attached.

Wow, it has been a long time since I posted!
Ok, updates...
Lilliana is here and she looks very cute in the blanket and hat. Met her last Saturday when J and I stayed at his mom's over the weekend.
I am working on J's socks using Step yarn. The one with the aloe vera and jojoba oil in it. I like it, it's nice to knit with. I think I need to use smaller needles for my socks - the 3mm still seem to big.
I am working on a sewing project for the derby league awards ceremony. It's a big project, so all my spare time is going there right now.
I went to practice last night and it totally beat me down. I was so exhausted at the end I was crying. It's not only physically a killer workout, but mental too since I am not as good as I want to be. Lots of blisters once again. Ouch!
Talked a little after practice about the tryout issue and feel somewhat better, but not a lot.
Tonight I go to get my hair cut/colored again and then to a karoke travel team thing later. Should be interesting. I don't want to stay out too late, I'm already tired.
Oh, Rollercon was a big disappointment. I needed much more cash than I took and it was hard to meet people. It was also hot as hell and the scrimmaging was outside. One of our girls was in a scrimmage and fell and shattered all the bones in her ankle and also broke one of her leg bones by the ankle. Not good at all.
I'm sure I have forgotten some things, but I will update more and post more pictures soon also.
