Last night was such a great time. My friend Courtney went all out and had us all arrive at a secret location for a special activity. Since I am sneaky I figured out beforehand we were going ice skating. For those of you that don't know, ice skating used to consume my entire life. I skated before school, after school and in high school even instead of gym. I had a pretty bad injury when I was 13, but it really didn't affect me. When I got to high school I was juggling too many activities and I decided I needed to pick poms or skating. I went with poms and really never looked back.
I don't think I have been on the ice in probably 10 years. Naturally, I brought my own skates to the activity. I don't know if I had taken the wrong pair from home or what, but when I put them on and noticed they were from 1998 (there was artwork on the bottom that was dated 11/98) I really felt old. However, when I got the skates on and stepped out on the ice it really felt like I had never gotten off.
You have to remember this is like the most beat up ice ever and there are hundreds of people trying to skate all around me, but I did make my way to the center a few times.
Anyways, it was such a fun night and I really enjoyed sharing with the girls!
