Something occurred to me the other day. I now think of ice skating as a “winter sport.” It’s December, so that means we should plan a little field trip to the ice rink, right?
But for most of my life, Sprinker, the skating rink, was like a second home to me. 10+ years of going a minimum of 2 hours a day, 5 days a week, almost all year round, and now I go once, maybe twice a year? It’s just plain crazy to think about.
But I got to go with a great group of friends, and have pizza afterwards. It was a fun night. It definitely makes me miss it though. I wish I had the time/money to start again. Maybe one day. But it is really nice to be able to still do “those twirly things,” as my friends called them. :)
Hopefully I’ll be able to make it at least one more time before the year ends, or the world… I have a week. :/ (just kidding!)
If you haven’t been ice skating yet, you should! It truly is a great “winter activity” and lots of fun! Happy December!
