Kinda Big Day

LightGirl In Goal

UPDATE – Sunday morning … still in Richmond.  The girls won yesterday.  They played so hard and well.  LightGirl had a shutout … she didn’t let one shot past her.   This morning we play the championship game at 9:10.  This time we’re playing a team we’ve beaten three times this season.  And we’re the only team to have beaten them.  So it will be interesting to see how this game goes.

We’re hitting the road around noon today.   It’s kind of a big day here at the LightHouse and in several other homes of friends.

LightGirl’s hockey team is headed for the playoffs in her league.  This is LightGirl’s third season as a hockey player and her first in net.  It’s also her first season that has ended with a spot in playoffs for her team.

So we’re hoping and praying for a good game.  A game in which all of our girls play their best.  Would we like to win?  You betcha.  But after knowing most of these girls for three years now, I think it’s not really important.  What’s important is that they win the game that’s in their minds.  The one that tells them they aren’t quite good enough when the going gets rough.  So my hope and prayer on this day is that they will play their best game and leave the rink with that sure knowledge of having given it their all.  And it was enough.  The numbers on the score board won’t matter then.  The gleam in their eyes will tell the tale.  The bounce in their step will say, “I gave my best game for myself and my team.  And I’m proud of that.”

If you happen to think of LightGirl and her teammates today between 3:30 and 6 Eastern time, it wouldn’t hurt to say a prayer or think good thoughts about them and their best game and their self-confidence.  That they would remember who they are and what they know; warrior princesses of the ice battling over a bit of hard rubber.  :)  We’ll have fun, do well and leave happy.

Saturday Fun

Here’s a fun little game going around in blog-land.  For no reason … it was just fun.

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

The questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name.

Some of the photos ended up a bit obtuse. I added notes below to make deciphering my choices a little easier.   I left 10 and 11 blank for you to fill in with your own imagination.  I’m sure you’ll have fun with them.

1.  Do I need to answer this?
2.  I have favorite foods for different restaurants or times of year … so I just picked whatever came into my head.
3.  U32 … don’t ask.
4.  I don’t have a favorite color … I just typed the color that came into my head.
5.  Heh … Mr. Big … gotta love him and have since he started wearing plaid ties on L&O in the 90’s.
6.  Coffee … the magic bean.
7.  Ireland and a Celtic monastery.
8.  Good apple pie.
9.  What else?
12.  Threadbare …

This is a fun way to see a lot of different photos.  If you decide to play along, leave a link to your version of the mosaic in my comments.

An Experiment
Dec 18th, 2007 by Sonja

So, I upgraded my blog yesterday. I think it finally took. Everything looks well and fine. So I think I’m okay. I also decided to experiment with a new feedburner … called, Feedburner. You can find the link in my sidebar for a subscription to my feed if you want it … it’s handily located within the flame right to your right. Pretty simple, no? Enjoy.

As If …

How Much Difference Can A Day Make?
Jul 25th, 2007 by Sonja

Eight percent.

A day can make an eight percent difference.

Yesterday when I took this quiz I was only 75% addicted to blogging. Today … well … today I had to answer one question differently. It was the question which asked if I’d ever blown off something important because I was blogging. Yesterday I could answer that question with a “no.” This afternoon, I had to say, “yes.”

This morning I made plans to meet BlazingEwe at our place of exercise at 10 a.m. as we usually do on Wednesday mornings. I had breakfast. I puttered. I did a little reading. I found a blog post I’d begun the other day and was struck with inspiration at about 9:20.

The phone rang … it was BlazingEwe. “Where ARE you??” It was 10:15!!! Huh? …uh … uh … I’ll be RIGHT there in 10 minutes. I don’t know what happened … five minutes ago it was 9:30.
