Little reminders

It is 12:15 a.m. on a Wednesday morning and I am laying in bed icing my knee and finishing up a bowl of tofu, Brussels sprouts, and carmelized onion. Why? Because this is my life.

The life of a derby player typically means late night dinners, loads of post-practice ice and Epsom salt, and very little sleep. Five seasons later, I think it may be catching up with me. I’ve been trying hard to not be moody and frowny, but I’ll admitβ€”I haven’t been so successful.

Then tonight, my wonderful friend Bruz-Her handed me a gift that changed my mood in about two seconds:

Wonder WomanWonder Woman came with the following note:

Because sometimes you need a reminder that life is supposed to be fun…

Truth.

Hours later, after a fun scrimmage against the Cowtown Butchers, a late-but-healthy meal, and snuggling with pups, I’m going to remember what Bruz told me.

Which is why I’m eating some ice cream in bed before I shut my eyes.
