Random Tuesday – Of Fall and football and back aches



  • As I mentioned yesterday, less than stellar weekend. Isaac isn’t spazzing out about the splinter anymore and we’re getting Ash’s car fixed but man, I am due for some good news here. Do you ever get like that? Where you feel like you’re waiting for something great to happen?
  • I am truly in a funk. When I get like this, I usually want to escape; have a drink or go out with other adults. But I don’t even want that. I don’t know what I want!
  • I will say, we had a nice night last night. We got home and worked out then took everyone to Isaac’s football practice. Isaac did really well, baby girl was happy, and Elliot got over his nervousness and played with this other little girl that was hanging around. We missed practice the last two weeks due to rain so maybe this is the change. At one point, it clouded up like it might pour but instead, it just got super windy. We were bombarded by pine needles – it was some serious wind – but it never did rain.
  • It’s the first day of Autumn! I am eager to do some cleaning up around the house and outside. I did take down quite a bit of the overgrowth in the backyard and some of the front area’s weeds. If I can find some time this weekend, I will get rid of the rest of the weeds and buy some damn mulch, do my best to keep the weeds and vines away.
  • Not that I have become a hardcore geocacher now but I am considering buying a handheld gps. Does anyone have one/recommend one? My phone works fine but I have a feeling the actual dedicated device will be a lot better.
  • Did I tell you that we’re probably going to an FSU game? I asked a friend of mine in Athletics about tickets in general and she offered to gather some for me for the Boston College game. I am pretty stoked and so is Isaac. Though I took Elliot a couple years ago, Isaac has not been. I got him all hyped up on Osceola:
  • My mother got all sad yesterday about me not being able to compelte today’s them for #our_everyday_moments on Instagram, which is “grandparents”. I want to tell her she can come visit but we are inundated with football and birthday parties and I don’t want her to feel like she’s getting the way, though I doubt it would be like that. Sometimes dealing with family is hard. 😦
  • My back is hurting a lot today (probably from 21 Day Fix) so I put on this Thermacare thing. thermacareWhen I bought it, I didn’t realize that size small wasn’t referring to the size of the actual area of the heating stones, as it used to. It used to come with adhesive but now it comes as a wrap that goes around your entire abdomen. Small is snug, as it should be, but it squishes out my post baby belly fat in gross ways. Ugh.
  • I’m off to listen to more James Taylor – I’m on a kick – and work on the Spring schedule. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

  1. Look at the Garmin products and see what they have that might fit your needs. Nick just got a Garmin 62s and he loves it. That might be more than you need, but they do have others that the reviews say are great for goecaching. We are thinking about trying geocaching next summer, since Nick has the new Garmin and all…

  2. I concur with Vandy – Garmin is your best bet. And they’re usually reasonably priced. 🙂 That spear plant was cool! Hope you get out of your funk soon – I wonder if there’s something in the air, as I’ve been in a funk lately, too!
