You know the adorable scene in Bambi when the little fawn goes out on the ice and ends up falling with his legs splayed right out?
Picture that but with me instead of the fawn and the adorableness factor turned right down.
On Sunday, Nathan and I were invited to go skating. Great idea ... except for the fact that I don't have skates. But I decided this was something I wanted to do and Nathan would need me to go with him. So I ran out and bought a pair of used skates.
Then I discovered my muscle memory and coordination skills leave a lot to be desired.
Still, I was enjoying myself and starting to get back in the swing of things when Nathan decided he was tired and wanted to go home.
I'm glad I did it. There are a few more weeks of public ice time before the spring shutdown. And next year, we can try again, too.
I'm trying to get more active in my day to day life. I've got my time on the treadmill and I'm going back to karate class. Occasional skating sounds like a good addition for winter.
