Panic! at the YMCA

Ok so another no picture post I know, but I just have to write this down. Tonight I am going to play basketball for the first time in years. I joined the 4 on 4 team at work sort of accidentally. I sent an email saying I was interested and I am signed up just like that. I don't know anyone on the team and haven't really played, not even a little, for a long time. BDiddy and I played HORSE last summer a couple times in the yard but that is it. I am nervous and scared. Yes I said it and I don't care who knows (why else would I put it on my blog right?). It's scary to think about meeting new people and then to play a team sport with them? Yikes! Plus I have to drag my chubby butt out there and haul it around on the court in front of people!

OK, I'll calm down. It's just a game, for fun and exercise. No pressure. If I embarress myself too much the first time, I'll just never go back. I mean what's the worst that can happen? Wait I take that back. I'm just tempting fate with that one.

I'm going to go work on my sock.


Edited to add:
It was bad, we got out butts kicked and I am WAY out of shape. I'm not sure if I want to keep going if it will be that embarrassing. The team we played were like 19-20 year olds. I am not. Enough said.

oh gracious, I'd be vomiting. Team sports stress me out. I do ususally have fun though, you know once I get over the panic.

It'll be great excercise and I'm sure you will make some new friends.

Sen, just remember the boys you used to play Bball with and how you could push them around. You will do fine and have fun.

You gave up knitting and dyeing time for exercise? Good for you!
