Love Autumn


I love fall.  Its my favorite season.  I am pretty stoked about moving back to Michigan at the beginning of October.  Late September / October is the very best time of year there.  The crisp breezes and the leaves changing on the trees.  Nothing is better.  I love just going for walks and taking it all in.

Its also football season.  I love football.  I joined a public fantasy league this year since the league I was in last year was with Dwayne and his family and friends.  No hard feelings or anything, but it would have been a little weird.  I was glad to find a league, and got a pretty good team.  Too bad I lost the first week…  I still had the 2nd highest points scored. Go figure.

I got a pumpkin spice latter today to celebrate the fall like weather here in San Diego.  Overcast and 65 degrees.  Perfect!  I don’t go to Starbucks very often (I am a Dunkin Donuts kind of girl), but no one does pumpkin spice lattes better.  Its been a delicious morning 🙂

Blame it on the Pain

I was not having a good day yesterday.  I was in a terrible mood and having lots of pains so my reaction to the news about the orders flipped me over the edge.  Now that the paperwork is done and sent to approval, I am a little more calm today.  However, they only review this stuff one week per month so we have to wait until the first week in December to get the approval and then the orders.  He was supposed to detach from recruiting in December… so we better get them then.  Or I might actually blow a gasket.

Over reaction or not, someone did not do their job properly.  That is what I am the most upset about.  Thankfully  my husband has more diligence to follow up on this stuff.  I feel bad for the others that may have fallen through the cracks and didnt realize until it was too late.  My husband keeps reassuring me that the orders should be fine, and that he is locked in.  But I will not stop worrying about them until they are in our possession.

I would like the stress from all of this to be over, and for us to be living in the sunshine.  That will be nice. 

But from now until the first week of December, it will be more of the same… wait wait wait.  Ugh.

Fantasy Football You Are a Bitch

I am in two fantasy football leagues.  I enjoy it most of the time.  This year… I am sucking it up big time in both leagues.  I have a lot of decent players.  However those players are: inconsistent, injured, having bad games, their QBs are having bad games, etc.

It’s a bit of a difference from last year where I was last in one league and 1st in the other.  I at least had one that was kickass.

Eeehhh well.  Thats why its a game.  Im not losing any sleep over it, but my pride is hurt a little.  😉

Maybe my season will turn around… it is only week 5.  Either that or it will be another 10 weeks of Fantasy Football hell.

Wish me luck.

Football & Almost Fall

Well I had already decided to post today about how football season is approaching, and my friend at My Army Wife Life beat me to it.  But you know what?  Im still going to write about it anyways.  Now I dont think that 24 hours of football is heaven or anything 😉  but I do love it.  And Im in two fantasy leagues again this year.  I had my friends & family draft last night.  Even though this is a free league, and we dont have any money riding on it, I really feel like I have something to prove.  Last year I ended up in last place (not for a lack of trying!).  So Ive gotten crap about it from all my guy friends & some in laws.  They all just assumed I had no idea what I was doing and that Id end up in last place… and I did.  BUT on my work league that Im in, I was in first place all year.  I did lose the final game the “superbowl” if you will, so I actually did end up in 2nd place.  Lets not talk about that though.  What matters is that I did well.  I legitimately shocked the guys in my work league, they thought I would be last place too.  😀 

So with the first draft done and another one in a week, Im pretty dang excited for football to start.  I do enjoy watching football.  Fantasy football does make it a little more exciting, and makes you more interested in what is actually happening.  Although, Im sure its not for everyone.  I cannot wait until the weather is a little cooler, the leaves are changing on the trees and Im on the couch with a pumpkin ale watching a football game.  Sounds marvelous to me.

So in the spirit of sharing, here is my team (starting lineup / bench still TBD):

QB: Tony Romo – Dal (DAMN you Tilley for taking Rivers!)
WR: Anquan Boldin – Ari
WR: Terrell Owens – Buf
WR: Eddie Royal – Den
RB: Matt Forte – Chi
RB: Jonathan Stewart – Car
TE: Chris Cooley – Was
K: Mason Crosby – GB
DEF: New York Giants

WR: Derrick Mason – Bal
WR: Michael Crabtree – SF (Rookie)
RB: Kwonshon Moreno – Den (Rookie)
RB: Donald Brown – Ind (Rookie)
QB: David Garrard – Jac
TE: Zach Miller – Oak

As you can see I took a chance on a few rookies.  They all were drafted in the first round and look extremely promising.  I took Matt Forte as a rookie last year and that payed off.  He was amazing!  So we will see. 


Also, has anyone noticed that there is already Octoberfest and Pumpkin beers on the shelves in their area?  I was at my favorite beer / liquor store and they were stocked with the fall seasonal brews already.  I know that its almost September and fall is just around the corner, but seeing them really made me wonder – how the hell its almost September?  This year is frigging flying by.  I do love fall, its my favorite season, so I am going to soak up all the wonderful autumn-y things while Im still here in the Midwest 🙂
