Light at the end

of my bad mood tunnel. I'm not really in much better of a mood but I promise not to take it out on you today. The weather is still over cast, I woke up at the time I normally leave the house but I'll try not to let that effect my musings. LOL. Sounds like it already did.....

DS came home last night. YEAH!!! He didn't get a haircut while he was gone. YEAH!!! I owe him 10 bucks for that. I went by his dads and picked him up after work and we went straight to Karate. He doesn't know it but I went back out to the car after class started and took a 40 minute nap. I woke up and went back inside just in time to see him sparing. During his last match his opponent kicked him right in the chest. He stood there for a few seconds and then the doubled over. The teacher went over to him and talked him through the pain. He stood back up and continued sparing. The teacher told me after class that he was proud of the way he handled the kick. He said he tried to hold on and then finally couldn't stand the pain & doubled over. He recovered quickly and continued on. That is what they are taught to do. It's hard for a mother to watch that but I know it is something they need to learn for a life lesson. Take the blows but recover quickly and move on. On the way home we talked about the kick and what he needed to do the next time to avoid getting kicked. He knew he didn't block the kid because he kicked him right after DS had done one of his moves. He admitted it was one of his weak spots in sparing and he needed to recover from his own move quicker and get ready for the opponents next move.

I got several emails & comments telling me they had updated their blogs because I made my "those people" reference yesterday. I better go check them out. Short post today but at least it's not to pissy.

Til later........................
