Dart League

I joined a dart league.  Probably your next questions is "Can you even throw darts?" followed closely by "There's dart leagues out there?".  I was hesitant when Adam first mentioned it to me, but then he went in to the fact that Joe had already signed me up.  Well hell.  Looks like I will have to learn to play darts then.  But truthfully Joe just wanted me to have a reason to get out of the house once a week.  The stay at home Mommies know this all to well, other than the grocery store or lunch with a friend (which I covet) we stay home quite a bit and slightly more in the winter. Once volleyball and softball are done and it starts getting dark at 4 we become home bodies.  Keep in mind so far everything I have listed I take the kids to so it is still not a break from them, but just the change of scenery and the kids being able to do something other than being corrected by me works nicely.  So last night was our first league and I must admit I was pretty nervous, so nervous in fact that I was stressing about whether or not I should bring darts and talking about it for nearly an hour only to then forget them at home anyways.  Who has two thumbs and showed up to play darts without darts?!?! Yep this guy.  Everyone chuckled at me but other than that I had an absolute blast.  The only thing that even made it somewhat off was that Joe had an award ceremony last night so he couldn't watch the girls, so my Mom drove all the way down to have dinner with them and get them to bed. (Thank you Mom!)  Parenting brings such an odd realm of guilt with it.  Oh yeah and did I mention that apparently in a dart league you play 13 games a night and we won 9 of those last night.  Yahoo!!!!!

It sounds like a perfect break for a busy mom!

I bet dark games go fast though, so many 13 isn't that many?

Yeah the whole process took just over three hours, so it wasn't too long but it did keep me out until after 10PM. :-D
