To get back to normal.
Now I have a wee cold. Nothing bad enough to stop me from doing all my regular daily stuff… just enough to make it slightly draining. Bah!
So I decided to go ahead and send my derby name in.
I had settled on Artillery Chelle.
But someone registered it between the last time I checked and this time.
Chelle on Wheels had several “similar” which pretty much makes it likely to reject. Grrrr.
So I gave up on the whole “Chelle” thing and I will now be known as “Auntie Inflammatory” on the rink.
I am going to try to pass my assessments in December. I am not confident that I can actually pass. I know I can get through the first day of drops, endurance, jumps, etc.
And I think I am ok on the pushing and whips and pack skating in the second day.
But… I just haven’t been able to get the hang of hitting. So we shall see what comes of it. I have until December 14 to learn.
Of course, failing the assessment is no big deal. I had originally thought it would take me until February to even think about assessments. So I can take the December one, fail it, and get notes on what I need to fix in order to try again in January.
I am in no hurry.
