Special Olympics and Best Friends

So today was the hottest day of the year. I don’t do hot weather, that’s a given, yet for some reason a few weeks ago I decided to sign myself and B up to cheer at the Special Olympics for the tennis matches. The AC must have been off at work that day and caused my brain to malfunction.

So 100 degrees outside, and we went to watch the SOs. We had fun! We got lost, even on campus, and only got to watch two games between two girls that were actually roommates for the event. Given that one of them had never played singles before–she was supposed to play doubles and instead they messed up and put her in singles–she did a great job. And B, bless her, didn’t quite get tennis etiquette. “Ssshhh!” became my favorite word. But the girls did a great job, we had fun, and we even got out a bit early.

When we got home, my next door neighbor was finishing up her yard sale, so we joined her out there for awhile. Hot as hades, but in the shade with the fan blowing on us it wasn’t that bad. We had a visit, then realized that our slumber-party-that-isn’t was starting in two hours. So run home we did.

The it was off to C’s, where her husband, bless his heart, was conned into cooking burgers for the six of us with the understanding that he could then play poker all night. Made him happy. C, A, V, H, and B showed up too, and the six of us ate a ton, watched Juno, and just had a blast. How sad is it, though, that I then am home by 12 because I’m too tired to stay up?

Still, it was a fun day. Tomorrow I’m looking forward to church and then chilling out at home for awhile. Might catch a movie, might not, but it should be fun!!

Hope everyone else had a great weekend, and stay cool!
