I am a babbling brook

Today it begins. My summer of soccer.

I have a game at 7:30 tonight. Another at 6:00 pm tomorrow. 7:00 pm on Saturday. And, as a favor to Colin, I am substituting in a 7:00 pm game on Monday evening.

To kick off this marathon event, I did what any sane person would do: I figure skated for two hours and took a yoga class.

I don't understand it, either.

All week long, I've been nursing a wicked cold. It started out as a sore throat, soon developing into a mess of drippy sinuses, a hoarse voice and a nose rubbed raw by tissues. This cold has been more of an annoyance than anything; I don't feel particularly bad. Yesterday was certainly the worst of it.

It has suddenly just occurred to me that I need to make Lucy's birthday cake tonight, as I will be working/playing soccer right up to her party (which, by the way, April might come to despite the fact that she feels as though she "can't contribute anything positive," whatever the hell that means). Damn. Where is my head?

Colin told me that he wanted to know everything about me. It is among the sweetest things that anyone has ever said to me.

My cousin Anna just passed her NCLEX exam. She's a real RN now.

You know how the European soccer announcers yell "goooooooooooooooooooooooooooal!" after a team scores? That's exactly how my mom yelled "yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!" when I told her that Anna passed.

My mom is, essentially, Anna's mentor so it meant nearly as much to her. They studied so much together (Anna is awfully lucky to have her nursing professor aunt at her beck and call for private tutoring). My mom was very invested in it. So I am happy for both of them.

I had Chinese food for lunch today.

Orange chicken, in case you were wondering.
