day 1610 – growlers 

i had no handle on what damages could happen today, but i have three appointments lined up. honestly think i make terrible decisions but i really wanted to play dodgeball after sitting out for an extra ten days. it’s taped up to the point where almost no skin on my hand is visible, yet it still hurts to grip the ball, catch the ball, throw the ball. i came out not thrilled expecting more, but at least playing today didn’t make it much worse

day 1600 – hand pain

it’s back to square one. after my making my first catch of the dodgeball night, my hand was in excruciating pain and could no longer grip a ball properly. being me, i thought that if i taped it would allow me to play; if i taped more i could continue; and if i tape enough to make it immobile, i could finish the night. i finished the night, but once the last game was over, i realized i no longer have a functional hand. it does open nor close, it doesn’t hold a fork, nor a steering wheel; it basically doesn’t function for my basic needs

day 1488 – getting sweaty 

normally i don’t sweat much, but the way my shirt was drenched sure made it look like i played hard tonight. my ribs are becoming more stable, but still have to play conservatively until chiro gives me the okay to play without limitations. my team played better than what the stat sheet showed; i had a decent night with nine kills and five catches despite trying to play cautiously. hard to believe a thunderstorm is expected to spur tomorrow when the weather was so nice out all of last week

day 1466 – our birthdays

this sunday was all about gstring playoffs, taekwondo and birthday dinner. a really bad fall gave me a scare because a rib out caused breathing and talking troubles. my chiropractor did not want me to continue playing, but being me and being playoffs, that wasn’t going to happen. thinking back, i made a reckless decision but it was something i would have risked for my team. it would have been nice to take both spirit owl and tier champ but kudos for making it to finals. our birthday celebration finally happened because i’ve had a crazy busy all of last week. fine dining at the apron with korean spicy wings, salmon with quinoa and seafood linguine

day 1453 – robot war 

nine dodgeless days is over as robot war strikes. a simple game of dodgeball with player stat tracking to spark trade talks. the few twists to the rules but i’m ready to contribute to team doraemon. day three of liquid diet consisted of three slices of toasts and one banana; i’m surprised i still had energy in the tank to play. these restrictions suck and i would experience spurts of dizziness throughout the day 

day 1446 – robot league

the hype of robot war league just got higher after i got my baymax shirt specially delivered. what’s also hyping is the countdown to my sunny vacation is within twenty four hours away. worked really hard in the past months and definitely earned this time off, both away from work and away from home. i hope it bodes everything that i have been looking forward to and i can’t wait to enjoy my vacation hitting up the sunny state that hosts disneyworld

day 1335 – phoebe and friends

maximizing my time at rdl doubling up in tier two for both time slots. phoebe and friends is a fun them to sub for. sour catch getting some time in tier two so we can focus more on our play without worrying about getting pelted by fastballs. i’ve been playing with a little out of focus the past few weeks; got to step it up as playoffs is closing in. gyming and dodging with a stiff neck and shoulders is not desirable
