What do these two things have in common, you ask? Those two activities sum up my weekend. I was exhausted on Friday so after watching (a new favorite show) Real Simple Real Life and What Not to Wear, I went to bed a little after 9. And you can roll your eyes and snicker all you want. I'm not ashamed. It felt amazing. I then woke up at 8 on Saturday, and did some house chores. It was Saturday morning, so, of course, I watched College GameDay and then I went for a run (training for the 5K). I flipped between a couple Big Ten football games, and then went to play flag football Saturday afternoon. It was one of the most fun things I've done in a very long time. We all played well and had a ton of fun. I had a TD reception or two and a couple other receptions. I played QB for one possession, and had a beautiful pass to Josh Christenson, but he dropped it. Now I know how the pros feel - okay, maybe not exactly how they feel, but close enough.
This weekend was missions weekend at church, and being on the mission committee meant I had a number of events to attend. The first one was Saturday evening, so I went home after the football game, baked some brownies for the event, and got ready. One of the high schools in town had a football game, so after my missions shin-dig, I watched the game.
I woke up Sunday morning to snow and temps in the 20's (ick!) and so began missions Sunday. The morning was excellent, and everything went just like it should, which was a relief after working so hard on all the details. I got home at 2:30, and watched a little football as I fell asleep on my couch. I woke up at 5 and was back at church for a missions dinner a half an hour later. I got home at 9, and completely forgot that Brothers & Sisters (my other new favorite show) was on, so I watched football, and then went to bed, completely exhausted and very sore, but grateful for a such an awesome weekend.
See, pigskin and world missions.
