This is going to be a very short update because it’s late; I’m beat; and have a long day ahead on Saturday with chores and possibly some work at the Inn ahead of me.
My early morning exercise by the river and breakfast with Mom, Dad, and the twins was good; school was fun; and then it was time to get to work as we loaded up the buses with band, cheerleader, and football gear for the trip to Brookbridge. That isn’t a tough bus ride, but we had to reverse the process at the other end of the trip; and then I was busy with a band warm-up and getting ready for the cheerleading part of my evening.
This is a good time in the report to mention that we’ve had a fair bit of rain this evening – pretty much throughout the entire game; and for a couple of hours before it started. We were prepared for it; but it wasn’t fun for any of us – players, cheerleaders, band members, or spectators. We also had one thunderstorm delay during the game; but continued playing once the lightning threat was out of the area.
The good news of the night is that we won the game; and won big. Michael and Tim had three touchdowns each; Lucas had two; and we kicked four field goals to earn the sixty-eight to seventeen victory. While all of that was great for us; it probably made it harder for the Brookbridge fans to put up with the lousy weather. We did get some laughs for dragging out our singing in the rain – umbrella mash-up routine; but I have to tell you that I really didn’t enjoy the band half-time show – not to mention that I’ll need to do a full cleaning of my saxophone sometime this weekend to get it cleaned up and make sure that the water hasn’t ruined any of the parts – like the pads and joints.
Packing up and the rest of the work at both ends of the return bus trip weren’t fun either; which is why we didn’t have many volunteers to help out at the home end of the ride; and the rest of us were stuck at the school even later while doing that work. I came home after that, and didn’t bring Michael with me. We were both wiped out, soaked, and uncomfortable; so we’ll have to see about some quality time together tomorrow or Sunday – if we can manage that around everything else we have on the go.
I had a hot shower after coming up to bed; and everyone else was already in bed by the time I got here; so I’ve only been doing the basic computer and email checks since getting into bed with Mandy; and didn’t work on anything else. There are a couple of family business jobs I’ll need to deal with tomorrow, but they don’t need to be done right now; and I’ve had more than enough fun for one day.
That’s enough for this report, since I really just want to crash and nap now; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
