This year, we've attended fewer competitions and shows. We have watched on YouTube. We have stalked user groups and Facebook pages to find the best, free web connections so we could wake at the "B" Crack of Dawn in order to catch live broadcasts of overseas events.
We did attend the US National Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina. Great rink. Wonderful people. Terrific barbecue.
Now, we find ourselves with two months left and with the uncomfortable uncertainty we've experienced before when our skater has been "on the bubble." He has to continue to train. We have to continue to wait. We know there is one more trip that will most likely happen. It wasn't the trip we hoped for, but it's a trip nonetheless.
So, let's lift a Glace to 2011. The season is almost over. Soon, we can all regroup and take a deep breath as we escape from this year's expectations and look forward to 2012 with fresh ice. After all, 2011 is just about on the rocks.
