News from the weekend:
On Friday night, I attended a Forbush football game (with my faithful companion, Lucy). They lost 9-0 to North Iredell. I met a 9 year old N. Iredell fan named Jonathan who kept us company for most of the evening. I also learned quite a bit about young Jonathan. He might have a girlfriend. He wrote a girl named Jessica a note on Friday and she’s supposed to get back to him on Monday, concerning the aforementioned relationship.
On Saturday morning, I drove out to Hobby Park for my first REAL mountain bike ride in about 2 years. I learned a few things:
1. I’m terribly out of shape.
2. I’m two years less reckless.
3. Mountain biking is rough on one’s posterior. (I actually already knew that, but I was reminded, and continue to be reminded.)
Saturday evening, Derek and I had some company from other “members” of our NEW church. Two couples, Brad and Allison, and Ryan and Gloria came over for a cookout, some scrumptious ice cream sundaes and board games. We played boys v. girls Cranium (girls won) and Taboo (boys won). It was a pleasantly competitive and enjoyable evening.
Today, we went to church. Then we went on a quest to replace the lid for my Nalgene bottle. At the football game LAST weekend, my principal’s son broke the strap, during a minor spell of destructiveness. Ever since then, I have been prone to dropping the bottle (today it dropped onto my head). Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a match and came home.
Upon arrival, I napped.
I’ve spent the rest of the evening writing lesson plans, grading papers and filling in my grade book. Good times, indeed.
How was your weekend??
