I am back in Colorado Springs after a whooping three days at home. What a quick trip but as always it was a joy spending time with my family… I surprised my mom. She was so excited. And guess it was a surprise to my great nephew Stefan who is three. His reaction was priceless. He screamed, yelled TT (short for aunt), ran around the room, then ran and leaped into my arms. So cute. During my short stay I got one workout in, dinner with my dad, has some of my sister’s slamming gumbo, went to the doctor twice with my mom who returning to Colorado with me, and took care of a little business. Whewww, I am tired from writing all of that.
Well, the Grand Prix had an unfortunate end of us. We needed only to win our last match against the Netherlands but we didn’t respond. Even though we didn’t make the finals I think it was a good tournament for us. We beat Cuba twice a team we will see again in the NORCECA qualifier for the World Cup. We be Russia in three and lost to them in five…. And played a little more consistently than we have in the passed although we will really have to work on making fewer errors are critical moments.
Now we are preparing for the NORCECA. I’ve been a bit under the weather the last couple of days. Hopefully come Monday I will feel much better. Three weeks will pass quickly.
