Love the humor! I always say, If I've done my best, that is as good as it can get. It is great you are trying to stay involved. It is great that although you thought you had nothing to write about you found you did. So many students drop out, or find life "gets in the way" and quit. Aikido is not always fun and easy. Any challenge will make you stronger.
Cheers, Heather! If we stop laughing at our own bad selves, we are in trouble
