Wow  – where to begin.  Life has changed so much since we last spoke (or since I last blathered on about whatever randomness filled my head).  Today, I was talking with a friend and pipped up with something along the lines of: “I’ve come a long way, baby!”

Surprisingly, my friend agreed.

One of the coolest and most recent changes in my life has been joining a local dragon boat team.  I bet you’re like what? You’re not alone; it’s been most people’s reaction.  My group is completely amazing.  They just welcomed me in and after a few basics handed me a paddle and we were off.

Result of first practice:

1. Arms of PAIN! (that’s cause I was not doing it right)

2. Can we do it again (after I regain use of my arms!!!)

I’ll write more later.  Just wanted to let you all know I am alive, well and excited to be on the coolest team on the planet!
