Other Weekend Thoughts…And BeyondSeptember 16, 2008 by Gilbert Leave a CommentLate last night during the 4th quarter of the football game I had a long blog post all ready to go…the computer froze and I lost it all. So here we go again.Friday night we had a great time with my cousin and his wife and introduced them to the wonders of the Wii.Saturday was a nice relaxing day. • Warning: Too Much Information Alert. Do not read the next few bullet points if you get easily queasy with your visuals.Ok, one nice thing about not having kids is that I can walk around the house in just my boxers.Hey don’t say I didn’t warn you.Haven’t yet convinced Lisa that her walking around all the time in her underwear is a good idea. 😉Again…you were warned.In any case, Saturday night I had just started running through my message for a final time when I heard kids in our front yard.I peeked out the window and realized it was kids from our youth group at church.My first thought was, “Oh no, we’re getting egged.” • I’m frantically putting on clothes as they are ringing the doorbell and shouting we know you’re in there.Now fully dressed I go outside to find Gene and about 10 members of the youth group doing their egg and beg fundraiser.The general idea is that for a donation and an egg, they will do whatever you want with the egg.My idea was for Gene to stand about 30 yards away from me and I’d throw the egg high in the air to see if he could catch it without breaking it…if he did, there would be an additional donation.First egg…splat all over his hands.Second egg…splat…all over the ground.Third egg Gene asked if it was ok for the kids to try to catch it as a group…even better.Splat all over a couple of girls.Sunday was a great day and CAYA had a nice kick-off to their fall ministry season.The fact both Maryland and the Redskins won their games this weekend helped brighten my weekend.Never had a smores made out of a Peanut Butter cup until Sunday night…wow I was really missing out.Monday…guess were beyond weekend thoughts…was filled with sermon stuff in the morning and helping Aaron get acclimated during the afternoon.Today has been strategic meetings with Aaron and then Earl took the staff out for lunch at Rosalie’s to celebrate Aaron’s arrival.We certainly do all enjoy being with one another and joking around…Aaron fits right in…he was giving it and taking just as much as anyone.Small group tonight…and a busy rest of the week still yet to go.
