My 8 year old son asked Santa for roller skates- not inline. He loves to skate just like me. Most days he will put them on and skate around the driveway and sidewalks. I’ve taken him to skating rinks a few times and thoroughly enjoy the time with him. Like me, he can skate for hours without a break. I love to feel the wind in my hair and listen to the music. Although I prefer to skate to 70s and 80s music of my youth, I still enjoy it. I think if I was a billionaire I would build a skating rink in my house and enjoy the calming freedom of skating every day. I am not a billionaire and do not expect to be any time soon. Therefore I need to make the time to skate. As a blissfully busy mom it isn’t easy. I can always list twenty things I need to do each day. For my 41st birthday, I managed to gather three elementary school friends and one high school friend to meet me at the adult skate at a rink we used to love to visit. It was such an awesome time to catch up and reminisce about our youthful days skating. Not only is it fun, it is a good workout. After three hours of skating, my butt and thighs were singing. I know I got a great workout that night. I have a date to take my son to a nearby rink soon. I can’t wait.
