Yay and Boo!

Yayyyyy, we're going to State! The girls really played well. I was disappointed that the one that I actually know hurt her ankle rather badly Friday night and didn't get to play. She (and apprently the coaches/trainer/whatever) say it's a bad sprain, but if so it's the ugliest sprain I've ever seen. She's a senior so I know her disappointment was much greater than mine.

The school where the game was played was just spectacular. Edmond is known to be a town of $$$ and the school certainly expresses that. Now remember, we're in the gym part. And just inside the doors is a HUGE atrium filled with plants. I could have stood there all day. Down just a little bit were aquariums built into the walls! However, hotdogs and nachos seem to be the same all over.

Afterwards, and after taking what we thought would be a quicker route back to the City (not) we went to Incredible Pizza. I'm not sure if this is a chain...I rather imagine it is. But it's just HUGE. You pay one price to eat and whoa...there is a lot of food. Everything from the logical pizza to baked potatoes and cinnamon rolls. All very good, and what amazes me is that it's all kept so clean. There were a bazillion people eating and yet you never saw a dirty table. Swoop, down would come the young people working and shazamm all was clean and ready to go for the next folks needing a spot to eat. They have a movie room, a gym room, a family room, a cartoon room and maybe more. Those are the only ones I've ever been in. And then in the back is this HUGE area for games, miniature golf, bowling (both regulation and little kids) go karts, and tons of video games and shuffleboard type games and they don't seem to be that expensive to play. And a good time was had by all.

Only disappointment to my day is that there was no package of yarn on my porch when I got home. I ordered some yarn for a specific project as well as some extra stuff on the 15th of Feb. It was shipped shortly after that, minus a pattern that was back ordered. The pattern arrived on Tuesday! But still no sign of the yarn. I called and was told that the pattern was shipped first class, but the package was shipped regular mail. And that if it didn't arrive by this Tuesday to call them back and they would reship. So maybe I can get it by April????? I really and truly need it NOW. The yarn doesn't seem to be available locally or I'd just order more. Dunno. Maybe I'm just spoiled by the service I've received from other vendors. I like their catalog, I like their selections but maybe this will be my last order. :-(

A bit of knitting this morning, I think, and then perhaps some yard cleanup this afternoon. I have some incredibly messy neighbors and their trash seems to have been making it's way to my house. I think stuffing trash in a bag or trimming things will be a good energy outlet and I'll be so glad to come in and sit down and knit this evening, I won't even care that my yarn hasn't arrived.

Hope your Sunday treats you well~

What company? What yarn? I'm going to the LYS tomorrow, I can look for you.

Sara said...

Sorry your yarn didn't arrive...

Sounds like you had fun both at the game and the pizza place...

I've spent the weekend at home with Mom...knitting....

Congratulations to your team! Now, is it college, or HS?

Hope the yarn is waiting for you tomorrow!

Ouch! A bad sprain can be worse then a break. Sorry for the kid and the team. Logical Pizza? Will have to keep my eyes out for them. Sounds like fun.

Susan said...

Cookie, thanks for checking for me.

Sara, yes I did. I also spent some good knitting time last night. Almost got a gusset done but I got so sleepy I was afraid I'd screw it up.

Paris, high school. I'd love to see the OU girls play but that's probably not going to happen except on tv.

Ann, I know! Plus it's such fun to get good mail *G*

Haha Devorah. Well logically they would have pizza! I checked, so far they are only in Texas, Missouri and Oklahoma. But with more opening soon in other places according to the web site.
And yeah...often the sprain takes longer to heal than a fracture. I'm thinking she's going to miss out on a bunch of stuff since soccer practice has started too.

Hm, you're right, the color does tend to obscure the pattern, but...

Notice how the pattern makes the lines of color look wavy? That's so cool!

I'm glad Cookie is going yarn shopping for you. I can't stand the temptation and you'd end up with a ton more yarn than you'd ever need if I went for you. :D
