Home Sweet Home

            Hello from America! I made it home last night and it feel so good! The travel was long, as expected, but was problem free thanks to my light cardio session through Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. This was my first time having to run to catch my flight but after my 2-hour layover was consumed by the slowest moving customs process ever, I was left with no choice but to fasten up my backpack and hit the terminal running.   Nonetheless, I made my flight and after the 23 hours of travel, I was home sweet home.

            Before I left Poland, we had our last game of 2012. We had one of our most dominating games of the season and beat AZS OPTeam Rzeszów 80-61. This was our fifth win in a row and gave us the record of 6-6 heading to the break. Currently, we are in 7th place in our league. However, there is only 1 point separating the 4th, 5th, and 6th placed teams from us so we are in position to move up a couple of places if we can win some more games after the break. We have close to a month off from games and will begin the 2013 portion of our season January 12th.

            As for now, I am going to enjoy every minute of the 10 days I get to spend at home. So far everything has been great; especially my bed. I had to ask my mom if she did anything to my bed because it felt softer and more comfortable than ever before. She hadn’t; guess I just missed home that much.

            I really love Christmas time and am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends. I am also excited for home cooked meals, and even more excited that those meals will include all of the holiday specials!

            Happy Holidays to everyone and enjoy the “most wonderful time of the year!”
