Happy birthday, Mom!
I spoke to her this morning, and she was preparing to have a terrific day. I love you, Mom! Hope it was great.
It is also Seph's birthday. Happy birthday to him!
Went to the No Limits tourney and MMA expo yesterday. It was a lot of fun, though there wasn't anybody for me to compete against. A few high- and lowlights:
Darren and I were interviewed on http://www.ibnsports.com/ for being on the team that went to Turkey. I haven't seen the actual footage--it's about a minute long--but you can go to this site and click on the Mixed Martial Arts Expo link for December 1. Let me know if you find it!
Noah, a 17-year-old purple belt at New Breed, took second place in his division. He did really well. I was cheering him on and the kids standing in front of me happened to be friends of his. One of them asked me, "Are you his mom?"
That was great (not really). Especially because this expo featured many many many women who had been hired to walk around in scanty clothes to tantalize the mostly male clientele. There was even a stripper pole, and lots of women in platform go-go boots gyrating around it. They looked bored.
This does not do much for my recent desire to be girly and pretty. I am old enough to be considered somebody's mom, and I have a black eye.
Okay, on that time-marches-on note, I'll write more about the expo later. Meantime, happy birthday to Mom and Seph!
