Weekend Update - crushing soccer, shitty football, chilly temps, and chicken fries

Happy Monday.

I guess.

It is cold and rainy on this side of Pennsylvania. After surviving my yard sale on Friday, it was time to take Little G. to swim lessons.

I called Becky and said, "Hey do you want to ride together."

She, of course, said "yes" because she loves me and then I asked her if she could drive because there was a Harley parade downtown and last year I got stuck in it trying to get to swim lessons and have yet to recover.

Imagine if you will 3000 motorcycles and one minivan. Would you want to drive during that again?

She said "sure no problem" and then it took us an hour to get to the YWCA. We both couldn't stop laughing. Our kids missed their lesson and the instructor decided to talk really slow to me in order for me to comprehend time, space and the movement of the earth.

She is lucky she was in the deep end. I told her I'm not an idiot, I know his lesson starts at 6 p.m. I'm asking can he swim at 6:40 because I left at 5:30 and this is as soon as I could get here. Bugger...is that so hard to understand.

She again started with this slow tone thing and finally one of the other instructors just said they can swim in my class. I think the slow tone thing was getting on her nerves too.

Because Friday wasn't fun enough with the whole Yard Sale from Hell thing and swim lesson during the Harley Parade my mother in law and her sister decided to spend the night.

This meant there was a strong possibility that I would have to cook dinner but alas my husband did.

Saturday morning we went to soccer in the cold and lost 7-2; I think those girls were eating their Wheaties as they were HUGE! And when I say huge I mean like seriously she is under 10 I would probably serve her in a bar big.

We came home and excitedly got ready for the PSU game. Moved some furniture to project it on the wall and had some friends over. And the game SUCKED. Seriously. The Hawkeyes. It's hard to live in Pennsylvania when Penn State loses. It's like a national day of mourning.

Sunday hubby and the girls went to Sunday school and church. I stayed home with Little G whose nose was draining like Niagara Falls. We watched some TV and then I made him lay down and he was asleep in no time.

The Steelers were on at 4 p.m. and decided to lose two weeks in a row and this time to the Bengals. The Bengals. UGH. This was not a good weekend for football.

Today was my first day as Cafe Lady Extraordinaire and I served 191 lunches to K-3 grade today. The kids are cute and they get excited when they recognize you. I had an entire table of 3rd graders waiving to me and my son, who is in Kindergarten, hugged me like 50 time and told everyone he knew I was his mom.

So being a lunch lady is sort of like being a celebrity only different.

What did you do this weekend???

Your kid's swim coach must not live in York if she doesn't comprehend how Bike Week is like living in hell. I can't believe she didn't understand how that holds you up? Whatever.

On a good note, I'm so glad to hear that your first day at the job went well! That's so cool all the kids were excited to see you!

Hey that's cool that you're the celebrity lunch lady! I would like all that "fame" with the kids :) Sorry about your bad football weekend and tough soccer games. My son went against some Amazon 9 year old girls too in his game. He never had a chance. That slow talking swim coach would've driven me nuts.

As always you have me laughing over here!

I usually hate watching sports but the hubs loves him some Steelers. He was soooo pissed in those last 14 seconds!!!

Glad your first day went so well. I bet your son will look forward to lunch time even more for now on. What a cutie.
