LSU won Saturday night but I swear that was a really boring game. They played ULL so I wasn't really expecting a lot to begin with but it was really bad. If they don't play better Les may need to start looking for another job.
I went to Mass Sunday & afterwards I had a meeting. I'm going to teach Sunday School. The meeting was about the curriculum & to set up the schedule. There are actually several volunteers so I'll only be teaching once every 6 weeks. Because of the shenanigans of a few bad Priest it's very hard to volunteer for any ministry in the Catholic Church that deals with children. I knew nothing about this. I signed up awhile back to volunteer & I got an email asking if I had completed "The Child Protection Process"? Ummm that would be no. Didn't know anything about it. They said they'd send me a packet in the mail. I had no idea what to expect. Basically, they want your whole life history. There's a video to watch online with a TEST. OK. Not only is there a test but you MUST make 100%. Well, by this time I'm completely freaked out & thinking maybe I'll just forget about Sunday School. I mean seriously, are they making the Priest do this??? (I'm not picking on the Priest either because I'm a firm believer that those type of shenanigans go on in other Churches too). As it turns out, it was just a cheesy video & the test wasn't hard. It can be taken as many times as needed but l'm happy to say I made 100 the first time. They also run a background check. I swear I didn't have to do as much to get my passport. Now everything is set. I'll be teaching 4 yr. olds during 11:00 Mass. Sunday I'll go observe so I can get a feel for how the class is run & my first time to teach is October 25. Should be interesting.
After the meeting we went to my parents house. My mom got her laptop & Dean hooked up her internet & I helped her set up her Facebook page. This should be interesting.
All afternoon I was checking the live scoring to see how No Thugs were doing. We were winning all afternoon & before last nights game we had almost twice as many points as The Drunken Ferret. Normally, this would've pretty much assured a win for us but the ferret had Tony Romo, Roy Williams & Jason Witten playing last night. All we had left was our kicker, Adam Vinateri who plays tonight. Kickers don't usually get you many points (unless you're Carney & you kick 6 extra points & 2 field goals - who would've thought the Saints would score so much??). I knew we had the majority of the points we were going to get so I was a little nervous. OK, a lot nervous. So much so that I actually stayed up until 10:30 watching the game. I would've probably watched the whole thing but Dean had already gone to sleep & he had the timer set on the TV & it went off with about 6 minutes left in the game. Being that I was already in bed, I didn't feel like getting up to turn the tv back on. I figured since 9:30 is normally the absolute latest I stay up on a work night I'd better go to sleep. So basically, I stayed up to watch a game that I didn't see the end of & didn't know if we won until this morning & I'm exhausted, so I should've just gone to bed at 9:00 or 9:30 like normal. The Ferret ended up with 93 points & we currently have 121.
While I'm on the subject of Fantasy Football let me say this. I do NOT want to hear from anyone else who thinks I'm crazy for not picking Drew Brees when we had the #2 pick in the draft. I take full responsibility for this. Wendy wanted to pick him but all I could think of is that he plays for the Saints & seriously we all know what happens to the Saints. They're going to lose. It's inevitable. I understand that he almost broke whatever record that was last year but to be perfectly honest I thought that was a fluke. Yes, I know that he's had 2 great games so far but you know No Thugs are 2-0 so it hasn't hurt us so far. It may come back to bite us but it may not. Our QB is Brady & he's like actually won Superbowls so I just really thought picking him over the team that can't win a playoff game might be a wiser decision. Granted he didn't play his best yesterday but it's TOO LATE NOW, so leave me alone about it!!!!
