I just got back from the football team dinner, where I watched thirty boys power through a large roaster full of pulled pork, two peach cobblers, four bags of chips, several dozen cupcakes, and all but four of the fifty-some fruit skewers that I threaded last night; they were a hungry crew.
The fruit skewers ended up being a really good idea, despite my fear that the bamboo skewers would become projectile missiles or some other form of weapon once barren of their fruit; I shall file that piece of information away for future use, probably at next year's football dinner.
The boys really seem excited for tomorrow night's first home game, and, I have to admit, the parents are pretty stoked as well. In addition, we are gearing up for next week's Homecoming activities and it feels really good to be back in the school routine.
On a different topic, it looks like we will finally close on the house in Neighboring City, allowing The Teenager and Katie to move out of the house and into their new digs. I'll miss those two, but, I'm going to make the best of it (with a new scrapbooking room!!). Besides, it's not like they are back on the Front Range, they are going to be less than an hour away; I can visit any time I want. Like, around midnight on a Friday.
Just to say hello.
You've been warned, ladies!
