Tennis anyone?

I'm really into tennis. I LOVE it! Before we moved from Austin I was playing on a league and attended weekly tennis classes. I played 4x week and played most Saturday mornings in doubles with my husband and another couple. But since we relocated to Houston I haven't played once.

Last week I joined a summer league through our local athletic club. However, my husband and I met some neighbors last weekend and I found out that the wife is on the tennis league at the country club. We're going to end up playing against each other this summer. That should be fun but I can see that she's just as aggressive as I am. The competition is going to get heated.

Y'all, I would be lying if I said I was playing for fun. I'm totally serious when I say...I want to win! I want to beat my neighbor so bad. She's a bit of a snob so sweet victory would make me very happy. I know, not a very nice thing to say. I try to be humble about the whole thing but something inside takes over. Like I have a little evil tennis monster living inside me. Does anyone else experience this? Doesn't have to be about tennis but anything that you find yourself competitive over. Well, I started my diet this week and I have weight training over the weekend. I'm seriously going after these matches like two guns blazing. What are your plans this weekend?

That is so great that you are into tennis. I stink at tennis--well, probably because I never practice. You GO GIRL!!!
