Tuesday night ... I DID it!!

Thursday, September 16, 2010

I'd been talking about it for a while, but Tuesday night, I finally did it .... I went ROLLER SKATING!! and had a BLAST ... so I'm going back again TONIGHT! The last time I went to skate (several years ago) ... I was huffing ang puffing and huffing and puffing JUST trying to get my skates on .... Well, that time I was exhausted by the time I made it around the SMALL rink TWICE! Tuesday night, I skated for at least a half hour (I forgot to check the clock when I went in). Yes, I was 'scissor' skating like they teach you in the first class, but I was back on skates. By the end of the evening, I was actually 'skating' a little. Yes, I was windmilling my arms to keep balanced, but I did NOT fall!! Can't wait 'til tonight to try it again!!!! emoticon
