you begged for an update, so here it is:

we lost six.
and we won six.

unfortunately, this isn't too hot. we had some really great matches! ...then we had some really bad matches.

seriously, i have a ginormous headache. the tension in those rooms is unreal. let me take you back to round #11...

the score is 150 to 145. it's the 19th question. there's 1 question to go. we're up by 5 points. there's one 10-point question remaining.

and the quiz master says, "How many..." and our quizzer buzzes in early. misses it. i flip out. my stomach does a somersault and i'm pretty sure my chicken sandwich from lunch wants to come up.

the question is re-read for the other team.

"How many people waited together in the upper room for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit?"

two quizzers slam their buzzers down! #3 gets it. he answers, "3,000"


and misses it

leaving the score 145 to 140. we won. holy skittles!!

it was like that all day. now i have a gigantic headache, and i feel nauseous.

tomorrow we have 7 matches. 7 deadly matches. right now we are probably 11th or 12th in the region.

so there's your update! i am now 20 days away from seeing PM! can you believe it? we are down to 10x2. i'm liking those numbers.


  1. Crossing my fingers for a good performance tomorrow and praying that the kids enjoy this experience regardless of the outcome!

  2. Wow, I had a huge headache today, too! Maybe, since we're like the same person, I was having a sympathy headache for you.

    I hope tomorrow goes well, and yay for your countdown...well, counting down!

  3. I'm praying for your team! Don't puke, friend. I hope your headache goes away. Booo headaches.

    good luck! :) love you.
