Kathy's sister Kristi recently moved to Virginia where they require inspections before they will title your car. Her car (Escort Wagon, go figure...) did not pass. We were both back in Ohio last weekend and after some discussion about what to do we decided to offer her our Escort Wagon to replace hers. The sale isn't final yet since we told her she could wait until it passes inspection to make it official.
So for now Kathy and I are down to one car. I think we'll be able to make it work without too much trouble, and then we will look at replacing it sometime next year.
Speaking of only having one car, I need to go pick up Kathy from work so she can go play volleyball with the GC team.

Waiting at the doctor's office
I haven't had my cholesterol tested in a couple years, but since the last time I did (I briefly passed out again) they have a new test that only requires a prick. Makes my morning easier. =)
This weekend is the last tournament of the year for Robot House, my Ultimate team. We finally got our jerseys a couple weeks ago. I'll attach a picture to this email post and see what happens to it...
Today is going to be a busy day, but at least it is Friday!

I went to Chicago for an Ultimate tournament this weekend. We finally got our jerseys for this fall, even though we only have one more tournament left. They are pretty sweet jerseys--hopefully you can see the photo well enough and ignore the button. I took the picture with my phone.
We played pretty well, although we got pretty tired by the end of the day on Sunday. We finished 4-3, even after losing our first two games. Not too bad considering we haven't practiced together. That's also part of the reason we were tired since we aren't in the best of shape.
Next weekend is our last tournament. Then we should have some free weekends again. We are already looking at going back to Ohio to visit family the following weekend (Sept 21,22,23). Bruce will be getting back from his trip to India, Myanmar, and Indonesia so we are heading back to welcome him home.

Football and long weekends
We're having a final supper for Lindsy. Tomorrow, she leaves for a semester in Spain. (You can check out her musings at lindsyrg.blogspot.com.) I already lit the grill and Kathy is getting the veggies ready. We might go watch a GC soccer game after supper. We'll see.
I spent about an hour yesterday practicing turning on my rollerblades. I found out that the outdoor basketall court is a great place to practice. It's a big enough space and the concrete is smooth. When I fell--and trust me, I did--it didn't rip any skin off.
Well, it's time to start working on the shishkebobs!
