I should probably not engage in running or outdoor sports when Aunt Flo is settling in for her visit. I found myself getting irritated with his antics. When the ball bounces back, he likes to catch it on the racquet. That's fine but last night he discovered he could roll it onto the racquet and then chuck it into the air and serve it. It was cute the first time. Then I realize everytime he does it, it goes rogue and my butt has to chase it to the other side of the court. I finally told him to give it a rest because he took to lollygagging and my heart rate was going too low for my liking waiting for Houdini to do his tricks. Another lovely aspect of this sport is I have to wear sucker pants (Spanx) so that I don't go thundersmacking all over the courts. When it's "that time" there is nothing worse than taking your already crampy abdomen and putting it into a super tight sausage casing. Oh yeah, did you catch I said courts. We take up what would be 3 courts if this was set up correctly. It's this fenced in court area, no net (we'd never hit it over), no real markings except a big center line and if there were other people there, there is no way we could play because we would be constantly assaulting them with our balls. I go rogue sometimes and whip it over the fence into the racquetball court. Lest you think he's the better player, he does it too, just not last night.
When all was said and done, I burned 875 calories which was good but the joints took a beating. I forgot how much they usually hurt afterward. So today is a welcome rest day. The Mr is my co-worker today as he's working from home which will be the case every Friday until someone screws it up. (I can almost bet I'll know who)
Tomorrow we're going to a farmers market and maybe an antique store or two that are having sidewalk sales.
Have you done anything outdoors this week? Any plans for the weekend?
