Things have been busy here in the small town.
For the past few years, the faculty/staff at one of my schools has had a night out at the hockey game. I didn't have time to meet some of my coworkers for dinner, so I just met them at the game. You know the saying "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out"? Yeah, that's exactly what happened on Friday. I lost count after the 5th fight. I've never been to a game with so many fights. Another friend (who I didn't know was at the game) said she thought there were so many because they were having trouble scoring, so they had to keep the fans happy. We lost 1-0, which really disappointed me because we weren't able to stand up and sing our song to the other team.
Saturday YS & I went to a Drum Line/Winterguard Competition. His high school has just started a Winter Drum Line, and they will be performing in exhibition at a couple of competitions in March. The school's Winter Guard was competing at this event, so we went to watch and lend our support. There was one group that was just amazing. They did this "Twilight" kind of show, and their showmanship was incredible. I absolutely love to watch rifles spinning and being tossed in the air. It so nice to see youngsters spending their day using their talents. About the Drum Line: I was expecting to see things going on like the movie "Drum Line". Uhhhh....no. I was pretty disappointed that it wasn't like that. I don't know if it was the acoustics in the gym or what, but it just sounded like a big jumbled mess. Not impressive.
OS came in on Saturday, and he asked if I wanted him to go to church with me on Sunday. Confession time: I haven't been very good about going to Mass lately. I don't know what it is, besides pure laziness. Anyway, we went to Mass on Sunday at the parish where we're actually registered, which just happens to be on campus where MS goes to college. I called MS before we went to see if he wanted to meet us there, but he was a no show. (Big surprise, huh?) We did go by his dorm and take him out to lunch. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with my boys. And, just in case you're wondering: OS was my favorite on Sunday.
This is a song that one of the Winter Guards performed to on Saturday. Very catchy...I can't get it out of my head!
