Sore Body, Tired Mind

Okay, where were we? Oh right, the weekend. Well, the weekend was tiring and my whole body is still sore. I sprained my right wrist and left ankle playing volleyball in the pool. I should’ve been sticking to swimming instead of joining the game.
Anyway, we got to Troy’s parents place Friday evening and didn’t waste time to jump into the pool. I can’t remember what we did after that but I do remember being half awake most of the time.
Saturday was spent roaming the streets of Brantford, checking out some thrift stores and the mall, looking for, um, well, stuff. It wasn’t a very successful trip. Then we got home and, once again, jumped into the pool and played some volleyball.
Saturday evening we went to see the performance of Wayward Sister in Lynedoch, near Simcoe. They gave an amazing performance, singing a capella versions of (mostly) pop songs, including a couple of my favourites, Strong Enough (Sheryl Crow) and Message in a Bottle (the Police). You should see them if you get the chance.
After the show, a bunch of us went to this party of friends of a friend’s parents. It was a ‘classic’ party of drunk, turkey-hunting Canadian farmers where a bunch people just sat around a campfire, singing some silly songs and just generally being drunk. There was even a redneck hot tub where you could cool off if you wanted to. I must say that it was pretty entertaining to watch. After standing around for two hours chatting and watching the party, we left home. My legs were so sore I couldn’t fall asleep until I took some Advils.
Sunday morning, we went to have breakfast with a couple of friends in Waterford. The place was more packed than usual for some reasons. After breakfast, Troy and I went to Simcoe to pick up stuff for the wedding reception and then made a stop at the Waterford Antique Market. We left the market with five vintage cameras for our collection. Woohoo! When we were back at Troy’s parents place, we jumped back into the pool and played some more volleyball. That was when I sprained my wrist and ankle. Joy! We drove back home to Waterloo after having a big KFC supper with the family.
My body felt really sore on Monday and Tuesday. It’s still sore now but not as much as before. And we still have so much to do in preparation for the wedding reception on Saturday. Argh! But the next Saturday, we’ll be off to the Atlantic Canada for our honeymoon. Yippee! I can’t wait! I’ll be sure to take a lot of pictures.
