The sun actually shines...

The sun actually came out. Oh, how I've missed it. I feel like a vampire most days...not that I really know what a vampire feels like.

I'm currently still trying to recover from the weekend. My team came out with a 2-2 draw on Saturday, in which I was finally able to get on the scoresheet. There was even a red card and some high tensions as the player who was sent off stuck around to "see" the ref after the game. I guess cooler heads prevailed and there was no need for me to step in and use any of the moves I've been learning from watch UFC.

But somehow I also managed to wreck my back. I spent all of Saturday night in some level of discomfort or agony. Sunday consisted of a major "faux pas" on my part from the stage (I won't say much about this except that I announced someone as being dead who wasn't even dead...it's a long story) before heading home to fade in and out of sleep all afternoon on the couch.

Monday I slept in and tried to recover. I was feeling better and even made it through worship practice with some of my students. I thought I was getting better, but as of noon today I'm still sore. And sitting at this desk isn't helping much.

I guess this is what it feels like to turn 30, eh?

I've got to hear that story of announcing someone's death before they even died - "in sad news today, our dear friend Clarence went to be with the Lord yesterday" Tears filled the room. The congregation was silent. Then a man spoke up with a hint of anger in his voice "What the hell? I'm sitting right here in front of you. I'm not dead pastor, I only went to see Lori yesterday, not the Lord!". It was Clarence ... a miracle :-)

I only wish the story was THAT funny! But maybe I'll post it sometime.
