we are the champions...

ahh. we won our volleyball tournament. so nice. i will post pictures of our sweaty selves as soon as the director emails them to me. so it was hot and gross but so fun. i admit. i hate going to play. i dread thursdays. dispise them. complain all day at work that i want it to rain and i don't want to go....then i get there and just play. i guess it's my laziness coming out. i just don't want to do it but when i'm actually up and doing it, i don't mind so much. does that make any sense?
so winning a tournament is a first for us. we always dominate throughout the season and then suck it up in the end. we just get in our heads. silly us. but tonight we finally figured it out. not sure how, but we did!
it was a brutal few matches. i literally had swamp ass. we've always joked about it, but i'm the only one who actually had it. so this is how it went...i hauled bootay after a mis hit and dove into the grass along side the court. well, there was a puddle there from the rains earlier in the day and i came out muddier than heck. we didn't get the point or it SO would have been worth it, but it was still fun. and qutie the joke of the evening.
anywho. i'm so proud of us. it was a 6 person league and we won with just the 4 of us!!! we only lost i think 3 or 4 games all season and that included when we played with only 3 people. it;s a lot to live up to next year.....but so fun and rewarding to know we did our best! okay. i'm plum tuckered out...off to bed! maybe i should hit the bath to soothe these aching muscles....
