But alas, we had to finish today
And I made a tasty salad
It sure beat microwave pizzas! Having the grill is SUPER exciting. It will definitely change the way we eat. We'll still have microwave and raw food, but now we can actually cook things! I have no idea why we didn't do this sooner.
Today was Chris friend Johnny's 30th birthday. He rented one of the rinks at the Oakland Ice Center and about 25 of us got together to play broomball. I've never played before, so I was a bit nervous. The Phillips children are good at a lot of sports, but we can't seem to do sports where things are attached to our feet (water ski, skate, ice skate, skateboard, etc.). And I don't like to play sports, games, etc that I'm not good at. You don't wear skates to play broomball, but me and the ice don't have a great past relationship. It was a lot of fun though! We played for about 2 1/2 hours (my team won 4-2!) It was hilarious watching people totally crash and slide all over the place, except of course when you were the one being taken out. I fell on my knees a few times, on my shoulder and on my side. I also got slammed in the hand by the birthday boy's "broom" and immediately it became swollen. It's still swollen and tender to type and I can already see some discoloration, but I think with some ice it should be okay. My knees on the other hand are REALLY sore, especially my right one (surgery knee). We'll see how Chris and I feel tomorrow. It was totally worth it though. I was a little aggravated in the beginning because I felt like the teams weren't fair (and I can TEND to get a little frustrated when I play sports, but just a LITTLE), but as the night wore on it ended up being a lot of fun.
Tomorrow is the Picardy's street wide yard sale. It's a pretty cool event they do (along with lights at Christmas time). We don't have anything to sell, but most of the houses along our street should have some stuff to look through tomorrow from 8-2, so I'm pretty excited :)
