Well, this week has gone by quickly, even with our four practices! Since we don’t have much time to get back to USA volleyball, our rhythm, our system, and chemistry, it is full engine ahead. Woohoo! It is really exciting. Thank God for the recovery center.
There are a lot of players in the gym. Actually, part of the team went to Mexico to compete in the Pan Am Cup Grand Prix 2009 qualifier. Our coaches are still wanting to see new players or players who haven’t been with the program very long in competition. With only a few days more than two months remaining before Beijing, there is still a big pool of players aspiring for only 12 positions to represent THE UNITIED STATES OF AMERICA! Very intense but exciting time.
Anyway, the weekend is near and I have yet to tell you about the wonderful weekend team USA had over at Diane and Ricks home. It was like a drive to the country, lots of land, even goats! So peaceful and quiet. The food was great, chicken, tuna, salad, fruits, PIES! We are looking forward to another BBQ weekend so that Robyn can do her pink chicken and ribs… We played games and tried to balance on the rope, that reminded me of a low ropes course.
This weekend not so exciting… but Jen and I plan to get a manicure and pedicure. And I will probably spend the rest of the weekend getting my hair braided. Yep a long painful process but oh so practical.
That’s it for now
Blessings to ya
