Just in time for tomorrow's game!

I got home today to the news that they have revealed Uga VII. His name is Loren's Best and he is the 3 year old son of Uga VI. He will make his first public appearance tomorrow at the UGA v. GA Southern game. Too bad it won't be televised.

He is the biggest mascot second only to his dad. He is a cutie that's for sure. Don'tcha think?

I can't wait for tomorrow's game. I can't watch it live (thank God for CSS replay though!), but I will have it pulled up online for up to the minute updates. Heehee!!!

I'm sure I will blog about the game later as usual.

Hey folks..................IT'S FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!!! ARE YOU AS EXCITED AS ME?


They think I'm nuts

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows me, but when it comes to certain things I'm quite obsessive. This is a test. Can you name the two things that I get obsessive about? Ohhh, come on. I know you can. It's really easy. If you know me at all or if you've been reading this blog for any length of time you can easily guess. LOL

If you guessed my UGA football and Bon Jovi you get a cookie! Those are my two obsessions. The funny thing is it seems to be getting worse as I get older. You would think that I would mellow out as I got older, but that's not the case. At least my wonderful husband is understanding or maybe just very tolerant of them. Heehee! I'm sure he now wishes that I would have come with some of those promotional products like pens or coffee cups explaining these things though. A warning of some sort. LOL

I'm confused

Ok, this digital tv thing that is coming in.............2009? So does this affect only those tvs that have an antenna? Or, does it affect all tvs? Am I going to have to go out and buy a HDMI switch or something like that? I have a non-antenna tv with digital cable. I'm hoping that is fine. I'd hate to have to spend a lot more money just to watch tv. I'm already mad that my cable company took off the NFL Network from the free channels. LOL

First day of kindergarten!!!

Joshua did so well today. Mom, however, got a little teary eyed at one point. His teacher was fabulous and made me laugh through it. She is fabulous!!! After he got his stuff unpacked and signed in he looked up at me and said, "Bye Mom." Like it was no big deal. *sigh* I guess it really isn't since he has been at the school since he was 7 weeks old. LOL It was hard for me though. He IS my baby. LOL

In my classroom before we walked across the hall.

With his teacher.

Signing in.

Blue hands!

Can someone please tell me why?

Why is Ohio State ranked #1 year after year in the power rankings? This really really annoys me. They are consistently ranked up there and in recent memory they've gotten their butts handed to them by SEC teams in the National Championship game yet still they are ranked #1 this year. Ok, so they make it to that game, but come on people really. Who do they play to get there? Not anybody of note really.

Can you tell I'm tired of hearing about Ohio State? Ugh!

Well I didn't expect that reaction

Wow that hit out of nowhere. I was just talking to my mom and she said that my uncle in talking about selling the land that he lives on. I'm sitting here bawling. That is my grandparents' land and home. They have been gone since '95 and '01, but it just breaks my heart to think of it no longer being "home." Ya know. It was really weird though because we were talking and she told me about it and I thought I was ok. Then about 5 minutes into a different conversation I just started bawling. Wow. Didn't expect that. Really. It just hurts to think that it may not be home anymore. I know that it would be a positive thing for my uncle and his family, but it's hard to lose the place that meant stability for me for most of my life. I guess it's almost like losing my grandparents all over again. I also know that I'm getting ahead of myself. They haven't decided to actually do it. They are just thinking about it. I really never expected to have this kind of reaction to something like this. It's just a piece of land, but I can't stop crying.

Are you ready for some football?

Yep, it's that time of year again!!! WOOHOO!!! Tonight is the first Titans pre-season game. Now I don't really get excited about pre-season except that it signifies the beginning of football season!! And I have to say that pre-season football is much better than no football! I'll definitely be watching. I've got to see how my boys do. I'm sure they starters won't be out much though. Either way..............GO TITANS GO!!!

I still have 20 days until my Dawgs take the field, but it's coming!! I can't wait. I know I haven't talked about them being ranked #1. I'm trying not to think much about it. To be honest I'd rather go in ranked 5-10 than #1. There is only one way to go from there y'all and well I don't want to get my heart broken. We have a TOUGH schedule. I'm talking really really tough. One other thing I worry about too is that the guys get lax when we do hit those games that are not thought to be "tough." They have a tendency to do that and if they aren't careful those teams will come out and well..........break our hearts. It's happened before. Everybody is gunning for us. And I'm not even talking about the big ones like Tennessee, Florida, and Auburn. Being #1 at the beginning of the season is not a good thing in my book. *sigh* All that being said.........................GO DAWGS!!!!!!

We need more money

I don't stress easily. I'm a pretty laid back kinda girl. I have to say that recently though I've been incredibly stressed out. The money doesn't stretch as far as it used to and add to that the car troubles (yeah even after the transmission fix it still isn't running right AND the check engine light came on yesterday............UGH!) I'm stressed!! I've even gone so far as to contemplate changing jobs. Granted, I LOVE my job and don't want to change, but we really have to get some more money coming into this house. I can't get a second job because all the extra money would go into paying childcare and that wouldn't help us. I don't see what else I can do really. I've even looked into Atlanta jobs. I don't particularly want to move to Atlanta (been there done that), but I know I'd make more money there than here. Plus I have several really good friends there who could help us out with the kids. My brother is there too. *sigh* Oh the things we contemplate when faced with money problems.

I'm trying again

Ok, school starts back full time for me on Monday (for Joshua too by the way...........he will be in kindergarten!) and that means that I will be stuck in the building all day. No going out to eat like this past week. I think I'm going to seriously try to take a healthy lunch every day. No eating out or in the cafeteria. I need light and healthy. I've GOT to get some of this weight off. I don't feel very good about myself right now. If eating light and healthy for a few months doesn't work I may resort to taking pills. I've been reading some diet pill reviews just in case. LOL I think I am also going to have my thyroid checked to make sure it's not something medical that is preventing me from losing. Wish me luck!!

Good idea or bad?

We have a problem in our house of the kids' rooms being impossible to walk in with all the toys and books. I've been thinking of moving them into one room and moving all of their toys into the other. I know that I would need to buy a mattress for the top bunk and a tv stand for the "play room" since right now their tv is sitting on a little play table. They want to play in the table so get annoyed that the tv is sitting on it. I wondering if putting them in the same room for sleeping is just asking for more trouble. Ya know? Will they sleep? Will they try to play? Will they wake each other up when one cries out in the night? Is this a good idea or a bad one?

6 years

Six years ago today at this very moment I was getting my hair done. Why? It was my wedding day!! It was the day I was marrying the man I love. It has been 6 years and I love him more today than I did even then. Our lives are not perfect, but we are together and that makes it better.

Happy Anniversary Honey!! I love you!!!

Oh, and we have now officially been married for as long as we dated. Heehee!!
