So we went to a Wii party tonight with our Sunday School class. We started going to the Young Marrieds class at Johnston E Free Church in January and so far we like it pretty well. We're trying to meet and get to know some more people so we decided to go to the Wii party. It was at the home of our Sunday School leaders, a couple from church, and they had 4 Wii's set up in the house. There was even a bracket someone made to figure out how the tournament would work. Unfortunately, we arrived a little late (30 minutes) because I took a nap this afternoon and didn't start to make the treat I was making (Oreo balls) until 5:30. I didn't remember that they had to sit in the freezer for an hour to get hard or that it would actually take us 20 minutes to drive to their house. I am such a poor time planner sometimes. I don't intentionally do it, I just don't think about how long some things take. Anyhow, we got there at 7 instead of 6:30 but everyone loved the Oreo balls so that was good. And Jamie did pretty well at the Wii tournament. I won my first game, but lost the next two so I was out. He won all his games except the semi-final game which was bowling and then lost. Guess he needs to practice that at my mom's house on her Wii the next time we go there. We hope they liked us and want to be our friends!
Jamie and I had a few of our friends over for Valentine's Day last weekend. We figured it would be more fun and a way to beat the crowds on a Saturday night. The menu included Cheese Soup, Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Asparagus with almonds, Potatoes Duchess and our friend Manda made a frozen Chocolate Mousse dessert. It was all very yummy. I have to give major kudos to my hubby for making most of the meal. He took a French cooking class a few years ago and made pretty much everything from recipes from his class. I was the kitchen helper and did what I was told to do. =) It turned out really great...he can cook for me anytime! We ate dinner and then afterward played the game "Would You Rather?" It was pretty entertaining and definitely had its share of hilarious moments. The best part came at the end of the game when I had to do a "challenge" and pick from one of the choices on the card. The other players had to pick one person for me to exchange socks with til the end of the game. So our friend Joe was the lucky one to switch socks with me! He had to put on my cute Valentine's socks with the X's and O's on them. Luckily, everyone had to go shortly after and I only had to wear his socks for a short period of time!
So the latest in my health issues...I drove home this past weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday in Chicago. Before going to bed Friday night, I started coughing and felt something pop or crack on my right side, near my back. Earlier in the week I had had a coughing attack that left me with a pulled muscle in my back on the right side. I don't know for sure, but I think I may have cracked my rib. It hurt like crazy after I felt the pop and I was out of commission for most of the weekend. We were going to a spa on Saturday to get facials and I was going to get a massage but after Friday night, I decided to get a pedicure instead so it wouldn't leave me more injured. I've been sleeping on my back since Friday night which stinks since I'm a side sleeper, and I still have a lingering cough from the pneumonia and it hurts every time I cough. Thank goodness for Ibuprofen and leftover codeine cough syrup from being sick.
