Wednesday night was the Winter Sports Banquet for thirteen year old, minus the banquet because she forgot to hand in the check. The highlight was her getting MVP for her swim team. She thinks she's now better than last years winner, who also missed practices and meets for some honor society thing. This may cause trouble, as last years winner is a bit of a Diva.
Her team went undefeated, again, but then, swimming isn't a sport where city schools are known for being contenders. Next year she'll be on the varsity team, combined with another, rougher school, competing against seniors and presumably the Catholic schools, a whole 'nother level of competition.
I don't know if she'd ever get a Title IX scholarship, though she has great backstroke form and a decent swimmer's body (thin with long arms and big hands), but that would allow another option for college, in addition to academic scholarships, free tuition or tuition assistance at local colleges for city public school grads, and our own savings.
Afterwards, we went to Wendy's, and that food hit my stomach like a brick. That was part of the reason I stayed up late, finishing my keg of honey lager and swapping in to force carbonate the keg of Pilsner, while reading the rules for Invasion of Malta (part of Air Assault on Crete) and perusing the musty components. Malta would fit on my tray, it may be up next. Thanks again OT.
I set up my HSA credit card, so now I can pay horrendous medical expenses directly. I'm hoping that they don't ask for the records like my FSA did (copies of the bill faxed to them when I accumulated enough to get reimbursed for), I suppose a payment to a Dr's office affiliated with a hospital system could be interpreted as a mani-pedi, otherwise it's just more paperwork.
Lots of packing last night, and last minute sewing and thonging.
So, I still have to get what boarding passes I can, I've never flown SouthWest, so I'm figuring out our best way to board. I'm thinking I'll lead the way into the scrum, with thirteen year old right behind elbowing, eight year old behind her, and Mrs. Ha bringing up the back.
Tonight we're off to the inlaws in Tonawanda, for pizza, as we're flying out of Buffalo and this saves time in the morning.
