this week...

Last night was another victory for our dodgeball team! We tied with 2 other teams for 1st place with 9 wins. I was voted team captain which puts me in charge one money handling  and putting together the team shirts and finalizing a team name. So far, I have it squared down to 3 names:  Deathball, Spaceballs or "Wouldn't You Like To Know" (that one is because everyone keeps asking what our name is!) We're going to have an official vote this week. What do you guys think? Which name do you like better? (keep in mind the team is 4 guys and 2 girls. So, the first 2 names are pretty nerdy, but fun!)

I'm going Salsa Dancing tonight! I honestly don't know how I'm going to do that because I'm so sore from dodgeball and I'm pretty sure I hurt my elbow throwing last night. But, it should still be fun. I'm going with the ladies I met at the english meeting. This is the 3rd time we've hung out (cept for Miranda who I see at dodgeball everyweek) and it's really nice to do things as a group with these ladies. I'm still not 100% on what I'm wearing (nervous about heels and ice) but I'm hoping for something semi-sexy/semi/comfy, let's see how that works out.

Saturday is our first Christmas party. We're going to our friend Lori's house for her annual soiree and it should be quite fun. She' knows a lot of people in the english speaking community and her husband Glenn and Lee get along really well. Now, Lori and Glenn aren't our age. lol I believe Lori is 55 and I think Glenn is a little younger but they're such nice people. I consider them to be more of an aunt and uncle than friends. I'm not sure what I'm making for the party yet but I suppose I should probably get on that ASAP.

Sunday is going to be a busy day. We're going to the flea market with a couple we met through Lee's work. They're really nice and it should be a good time. We haven't really had a double date in a while and though, the flea market doesn't count as a date in my book it might lead to one in the future  :)
On Sunday we're also going to see the musical Guys and Dolls. I LOVE musical theatre and am even hoping to audition for their next production. I wanted to audition for this one but I was nervous and didn't know anyone so I chickened out. I won't make the same mistake twice.

As you can see, we've become quite the busy bees and It's great! I miss having a social life such as this one. I'm sure with the holidays it's going to become quite busy for us and I welcome it. It makes up for the days of sitting at home doing nothing.

I have more stuff coming up next week such as another christmas party and volunteering and a cocktail hour. I plan on having my camera on hand for the next couple of weeks and hopefully take lots of pics!

enjoy your week.

oh and just an fyi if you're still thinking about the dodgeball names. the other teams are as follows:

One Ball To Rule Them All...
Les V8  (not sure what that means.)
Anglophones Anonymous (AA)
Balls of Glory
