Loren had another game yesterday, attended once again by Melissa & Jason (thanks again for coming, guys- i know Loren appreciates it). at the unholy hour of 9am they rematched against a team that beat them handily last time. this was a much more competitive game for the first half, although it managed to get away from the Knights in the second half.
Loren scored another basket, going 1 for 2. he got a few more touches this game, and played some pretty good defense (at times outstanding). would have liked to see him get more minutes, but i think he's getting pretty decent treatment for his first year playing. i get the impression he'll stick with this, which i'm glad for.
changing gears, i was in a lot of pain last night, and woke up in even more pain this morning. intermittent back problems are sometimes a big problem for me, running up through my neck and into my head. it's got to be a pinched nerve or something....simply excruciating. did my usual routine of long shower, hot as i could stand it, turning up the heat in the house, dressing warmly. i need to get moving around or i'm in for a long day.
this evening my folks are having some of us over for spaghetti and mud pie to celebrate Dad's 59th birthday, belatedly. until then i hope to get some cleaning done around this place. i scrubbed the kitchen/dining room/hall floor on my hands and knees and started finishing it (applying a commercial grade acrylic polymer sealant/floor finish i've had hangin' around forever). my beat up old vinyl floor is downright glossy in the areas i've finished :) now if i could just get rid of the white carpet everywhere....
