February 17 to 26

February 26, 2007 - Monday

Alex had her first game in Orlando today and Lycoming beat Catholic University! Final score was 13-8.

February 25, 2007 - Sunday

Too many long island ice teas for me! The phone rang at 7:30. It was Mike's Sunday School teacher, letting us know that class was cancelled because of the potential threat of snow.

Well it finally did snow and we got about 5" of the white stuff. I spent the day working on the website for the boys lacrosse club. Chances are good there will be no school tomorrow. Here in MD all you have to do is say snow and they close schools!!

February 24, 2007 - Saturday

Well we got up early and all of us (Alex too) went to Tyler and Michael's indoor lacrosse game. Afte that we came home, packed up the car, and Charlie too Alex to BWI airport for her trip to Orlando with her lacrosse team from college.

Tonight was Chris's annual company party. Not a holiday party because of when it is but similar. It was held at the Ceresville Mansion in Frederick. We had a great time. There were a lot of people there. The food and atmosphere was just perfect. They had a casino night and gave everyone 25,000 fake dollars to begin with. After you gambled you traded your money in for chances to win various door prizes. I was able to roll my 25K into almost 400K!!! Never fails with phony money!!!

February 23, 2007 - Friday

Alex came home! Well just for tonight. She flies to Orlando on Saturday for her spring break with her lacrosse team. They are playing 2 games in Orlando (Catholic U. and SUNY Oneata) for their 1'st 2 matches of the season. They are all very excited. 80 degrees and sunny should help them get visions of 10 degrees and snowy that they have stuck in their head. She called at 2pm to say she was leaving. Good thing too because I had totally forgotten she was coming home! We had pizza and wings from Ledo's Pizza to honor the occasion.

February 22, 2007 - Thursday

Ski club for the boys tonight. Very quiet day today finally. Chris stayed late at work today and I went to play basketball at the local rec club in the Men's over 35 drop-in league. I'm now 10 years over the limit so no more ID checking!!!

Came home with all my limbs. Chris got home later as she did some shopping after leaving work. Picked up the boys around 10:30 from school. They were beat!

February 21, 2007 - Wednesday

Schools, 2-hour delay. This is absolutely incredible! They are driving me nuts. I had a board meeting for the boys lacrosse team.

February 20, 2007 - Tuesday

Schools, 2-hour delay for crying out loud!!!!! How long does it take to clear a sidewalk for pete's sake?

February 19, 2007 - Monday

Today was my birthday so we went out to dinner. Of course it was presidents day and no school AGAIN. The boys had an indoor lacrosse double header tonight. That is winding down and outdoor starts soon. Where they will practice is to be determined with all the snow and ice still sitting on the ground.

February 18, 2007 - Sunday

Today we go up and drove over to get Alex and went....... to the mall!!!! ugh. She needed shoes and stuff so of course waited for the bank to show up! After that we went for lunch and then took her back to campus.

Drove home and got home around 6pm. Long couple of days.

February 17, 2007 - Saturday

Got up early this morning and drove to Lycoming to see Alex play lacrosse! Pictures coming to the picture page under reconstruction. We saw her team have a non-conference game (scrimmage) agains Lockhaven. They are ranked 6'th in the country for DIII Women's lax. All in all they played well and lost by about 5. Alex played a good amount. Almost 1/2 the game. The field is a turf field and was a little green oasis in the sea of white mounds that was plowed off it the day before!

Went out to a Japanese restaurant (Michael's favorite) tonight. The one where they cook it all before you with flames and knives flying! It was the 5 of us and Alex's boyfriend too (hmph). :)
