Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

Revelations and Resolutions of a Hockey Mom

I, PuckGal being of sound mind and body (well body anyway) resolve to do the following in 2014:

- Wash my goalie's under gear more than once a week even though it just gets stinky and dirty again the next day

- Truly have an off season this summer (yeah right)

- Not consume so much Starbucks coffee and hot chocolate that I put their employees through college with my tips

- Retire my blingy hockey mom sweatshirt with the skate blade tear in the sleeve

- Remember that even at early morning practices other people still have to look at me so a little makeup couldn't hurt

- Wear close toed shoes. Desert dweller or not, sandals have no place in a locker room filled with 11 year olds and skate blades

- Mutter a little less at games. I already have the crazy goalie mom rep, it doesn't help when I mutter and rock

- Stop obsessing about the five hole

- Reconcile with the fact that the new car smell left the building about a week in and is NEVER coming back

- Not COMPLETELY break down when I pay the hockey bills

- Grow my hockey mom tribe (band together rink survivalists!!)

- Not really put her on that caffeine and cigarette diet that I threatened, to keep her from growing (that equipment is pricey!)

- Remove the phrase "shut out" from my vocabulary, unless it is used to hex the opposing goalie

- To not throttle the cowbell toting/ringing parent on the opposing team

- Last but not least to remember I do ALL of this to make one little girl very happy, very healthy and it's my privilege to watch it all happen...

Here's wishing you a stink-free, winning, injury free rest of the season and New Year!

What about you? What are your hockey resolutions, revelations, revolutions this year?

Happy 2014!
