Go Petrels!!!

This is a weekend of catching up - two weeks of mail to open, taxes to finally take a look at, make more plans for our Italy excursions, lots of laundry... But all of that pales in comparison to OU's Lady Petrels making it to the Sweet Sixteen for Div III - and after last night's win, they're in the Sectional Finals! Whooooot! You see, this is a Very Big Deal - no team in any sport at Oglethorpe has made it this far.

I'm not much of a basketball fan - it's really just a good excuse to pull out the knitting. But I played volleyball and tennis at Oglethorpe, and once you're a Petrel, you're always a Petrel. We're bound by the magical campus, amazing experiences, and the privilege of having a weird mascot. Congratulations, ladies - I'll be proudly wearing my Petrel pin to our office dinner party tonight.

And another thing on this weekend's agenda...? Updating my new little friend:

Hello, gorgeous. Come to Mama.

Ah, yes, the lovely bond of Stormy Petrels! Thanks for passing along the basketball info. I will have to dig out my OU hooded sweatshirt from 1991 and wear it with pride!! Go, Petrels!!
