Social Saturday

"Only through our connectedness to others can we really know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others." -- Harriet Goldhor Lerner

T's got a bunch of kids coming over tonight (it started off as a couple of kids, I think she's crossed the line into a full-fledged party). I'm hiding in the basement. We were able to build and sustain a fire on the deck even w/ Chris gone. Go girl power!

Today the 75lbs. youth football team played the Clay Cougars for the SEYFL championship. These little Hoover boys are something else! Totally undefeated! It was a gorgeous day for football. No problems w/ any over-zealous fans this week. :-) I'm sad, in a way, to see the season end. I've really gotten to know and love all the little girls on my squad. However, I am REALLY looking forward to sleeping in late next Saturday!!! That 9 am game just about KILLED me each week!!! It wasn't the early kick-off time, it was the travel time, the getting KJ dressed and ready to go time, etc.

The girls and I had lunch at Wings and then ran to the mall. KJ makes her reconciliation in December and the kid truly has nothing to wear. I'm not very good at getting the girls to church so she doesn't really have "church" / Sunday kind of clothes and T's hand-me-downs either don't fit or are the wrong season. She bought a cute gold satin long sleeve top to wear w/ brown gaucho's she bought a week or 2 ago at Limited Too (I think she's going to save that outfit for Christmas). She also bought a cute black & white short sleeve dress to wear for church (don't forget, she's my sweaty kid . . . she can get overheated in an igloo) and she actually bought a brown 3-piece suit to wear for her reconcilliation. She looked like she was going on an interview. T picked out a sweater and necklace from Buckle to put away for Christmas. I think she knows everyone of her Christmas presents so far. Hopefully I can surprise her w/ a few things. Buckle had some really cool jeans for T but I'm not about to spend $96 on jeans for an 8th grader. I love her alot but not that much!

Cosmo has landed in Dallas and met up w/ his college buddies: Spaulds, Bubba & Fruit (don't ask!). Tonight was the TCU game; tomorrow is the Cowboys.
