I Like It Loose

After my much needed unfill on Wednesday I am feeling pretty good.  I have had two solid nights sleep...and not a drop of acid reflux.  It has been wonderful.  I have no idea where my restriction level in...if it's at the right place...but I can handle wherever it is as long as I am not too tight.

The most terrible thing happened last night.  Heather's coed softball started back up...and sho' enough...they needed an extra girl.  What am I supposed to say?  They technically had enough girls (5 girls, 5 guys), but there was an EXTRA guy...and if I didnt play, he couldnt play.

So.  I did. 

It's shameful that I can't hit that ball.  I was talking to the pitchers, flirting with the ump, being cute, being funny.  It really is exhausting.  And I say that in all seriousness.  It embarrasses me to the core that I can't hit the ball and look like someone who SHOULD be able to hit the damn thing.  You would think by pure odds that once in awhile, the bat and ball would come in contact.  So, even though on the inside I am close to tears and dying of embarrassment, I am the funny upbeat girl on the outside.  And it was a I had to keep up the act for hours.  So...I am sure we will repeat the same nonsense next week.  The season is only 5 weeks long...I can make it.  Heather promised we will head to the batting cages this weekend.  I hope so. 

And I am really looking forward to the weekend. 

I have a lot to say, but I feel like I may need to take pause before I do....

so stay tuned.



  1. get out to those cages! you will feel better with just a bit of practice.

    and remember, even if you can't are still the most fun!!!!

  2. Okay, this has nothing to do with softball or this post or really anything other than that I think you are awesome. I discovered your blog on Wednesday, and instead or working or doing anything constructive since then, I have read it from beginning to end. I have to thank you. Thanks for being honest and funny and share-y and real and imperfect. I need to hear that there are people who don't succeed by being perfect and who don't fail by being horrible, but who succeed by being human. I heart you. Oodles.

  3. Glad to hear you're feeling better! I am scared shitless of all balls, no thanks for me with any balls flying at my face. You. are. brave.

  4. glad you are feeling better after the unfill! Good luck with the baseball playing. My niece was such an awesome softball player and I always felt like the bench warmer...but as long as we try our best.

  5. Thank you for your message... I adore my Amy Sunshine. XOXO *M*

  6. I never could hit that damn ball either. Turned out I needed Glasses...but then I still couldn't hit the damn thing. ha ha ha I bet you're a Blast to have on the team.

  7. I love to hit balls! Hahaha. Practice, practice, you will get it! So glad you feel better. Nothing is worse than too tight and reflux.
