I Want To Be Made

The past few summers, I've taken tennis lessons with my girls. The 14 and 15 year-olds play for the high school, and represented their school in the State tournament in doubles. I've mostly watched them from the stands, and help them practice.

Last week, I decided 2012 will be the year I get out of the stands and play in a tournament. My 15 year-old has agreed to be my coach, and move me past "just playing," to "really playing."  I'm going to be Made into a tennis player!

In my area there's a tournament March 9, that's 10 weeks... 73 days to be exact! I want to be ready to play, not just participate. That picture of Serena Williams in my inspiration... and I'd love to have her arms!

I want to play tennis too. I've never played or taken lessons but I always watch it on TV. And I really want my arms to look like Serena's arms.

Krystal & Kathy - I used to want Michelle Obama's arms... but Serena has guns for sure! Looks like she could hurt somebody with those things!

You go girl! I took tennis lessons as a youngster, but never competed. I play every blue moon and still enjoy it!
