More Saying "Yes."

Last Saturday at the High School forensics meet - the students took 3rd in medium schools! - a judge from another school went table to table asking every one if they would like four free tickets to a hockey game that night. Every one she asked said no. So when she came to me I said... Give me a minute to see if I can find three other people, and I'd definetly take them. 

I'm trying to say yes more.  When my back issues were at their worst I had to start saying no to invitations and commitments, for the sake of my spine and mental health. Unfortunately I let myself fall into a comfort zone of turning down offers even after I started recovering. Now that I'm well on the road to better health, with only some delays and detours, I want to say yes more. 

We had a great time at the hockey game - my first! Our friend Sarah (Teacher and judge) came along with Zoe, a former student and one of Rich's former soccer players.  The tickets were for row E, so we were super close to the ice. As luck would have it we scored a free parking spot when we arrived, so that plus the free tickets means we had a super cheap date night - just $4 on a giant pretzel to share. That makes my cheap side really happy.
