Weekend Roundup...

...our weekend flew by in a blaze of...yeah, something. It was a whirl.

...we rushed around to get all the way out to D's game on Saturday, only to discover they were running behind. IN the end, the game was only delayed about 20 minutes, but because we were in the middle of nowhere (practically Nebraska), we had nothing to do but hang out. Still, D's team played great. They won 39-6, and D scored the final touchdown (woot) :D I'd show a picture, but I forgot my camera battery (yep, that's about how the whole weekend felt).

...Saturday night, we all went to movies. D, DH, and I went to see Ender's Game. If you've read the book and liked it, you'll enjoy the movie. If you've never read the book, I don't think you'll have any idea what's going on. E and her Auntie went to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, which E loved.

...yesterday, we had our monthly brunch at my parents'. Then E had her final soccer game with this team. They won (as usual), 3-0. E had two assists (yay). I'm relieved that's over -- and even though she wants to play on a more competitive team, that won't happen until the spring.

...work has slowed down a lot for DH. It's good for him to have a break, but I can tell all the extra time (not to mention worry about future finances) is wearing on him. Plus, the trails nearby aren't in good enough shape for him to truly take advantage of the extra time with riding. He's not as good at filling his time as I am, perhaps.

Another Monday, another month -- what are your November plans?

Weekend Roundup...

...it got cold on Friday -- briefly.

...for D's game, it was sunny and quite warm (probably the warmest game we've had since early September). The kiddos played a team with a 'dirty' rep -- but the refs were great, and D's team won 21-0 (D got one of the extra points).

...E went to the neighborhood Fall Fest with her auntie. I think she had fun, even though I guess her friends didn't make it. We showed up just in time to get food (and only the meat -- but since we were all starving, that was fine). We spent the rest of the day recuperating (ha).

...my MIL and her boyfriend came in Saturday night (unexpectedly). We went to breakfast and dinner with them yesterday. In between, E's team played another game. E was a defensive player this week, and although she did quite well (she can really clear the ball), having her and the other two strongest players in the backfield meant it was a scoreless game. So her record now is 2-1-2. I seriously doubt they'll lose anymore games (they have two left). The other team is not improving, and E's team gets better and more organized each week. There is one player on the team who is the most annoying kid ever, but other than that, the boys are fun for E to hang out with, I think (she's now the only girl).

...I'm making player posters for D's football team (and small certificates with pix for E's soccer team). I like doing stuff like that, so I've been playing. ;) It's nice procrastination, I must say.

...after E's game yesterday (which was overcast and quite chilly), it started to sleet. We work up to snow on the grassy areas, but I think it's already melted.

Happy Monday!
