That's me! Tommy's hockey association is sponsoring a fund raiser game with the hockey Moms. Tonight we had our organizational meeting and I just have to say you get a bunch of woman in a room and it quickly becomes a game of too many chiefs and not enough Indians. There is the saying, "you can never please everyone." That being said I hope the poor lady that is organizing it and the rink manager don't drive themselves mad trying to please everyone.
Tommy's coach's wife and myself are playing and on Monday night the coach invited us to practice with the team. I was saying to Joe "I hope I don't embarrass myself out there" and my beast son pipes up "I hope you don't embarrass ME!" What a jerky turkey. It was so much fun! And I only fell once! I am very proud of that, I got quite a few raspberry's from a few of the Dad's there watching. It was AWESOME! I can't wait to play in a real game. My coworker Jill & I are playing together so it should make for some very interesting fodder at work in the future.
One of the Moms there was one of my OB doctors. She was the doc that did my first u/s with Autumn and told us about the cystic hygroma. It was very awkward for me being in the room with her, I was wondering if she recognized me and all. I just kept thinking, I shouldn't even be able to ice skate right now let alone play hockey.
Oh well, I am living that is for sure. More on the Mom's hockey scene to come! Anyone ever see "Slap Shot" I am hoping to model after the Hansons! J/K
Austin had to go to Ann Arbor today to the physical medicine doc and the orthotics doc. He's doing well. He hadn't been wearing his AFO's since before Christmas because they were rubbing his feet bad. He was doing so great without them and I was hoping maybe he wouldn't need them at all anymore. I don't know what I was thinking but Joe said the doctor say that Austin will probably wear AFO's his whole life. His ankles roll out too much. That was a bit disheartening but what can you do?
We had the wonderful visit this weekend with the rambler boys who are Austin's age. We've been meeting up occasionally since the kids were babies. I know after every visit I would get a little sad because Austin would be so behind physically. The first time they were all sitting, Austin couldn't, then it was walking, etc. He's come a long long ways, but it's weekends like this that make me again realize just how handicapped Austin is. I know it could be worse though so I am thankful for all that he does.
Tommy and I had dentist appointments today and Tommy is still able to brag about being the only one in the family without a cavity. He's pretty near perfect I swear.
Joe took the boys skating on the pond tonight and Austin made some progress! We're still thinking spring hockey possibly. We'll see.
Thank God tomorrow is Friday! I'm so ready for the weekend, though there'll be no sleeping in. 7:45 hockey game Saturday. Fun fun! I'm hoping for a bit of a relaxing weekend as I'm still recovering from the Indiana wild. Bye!
