Football Mania

I love football. I hate that I grade papers and fold laundry in front of it, but I still love it. This weekend was jam packed. I got to watch my beloved Broncos squeak out another win on Thursday which is always interesting to watch. They are a little bipolar, and you never know who is going to show up at the game. Sunday we saw lots of games, and now I get to watch the Cardinals on Monday night. I wished we had brought tickets to the game, especially since I have tomorrow off. They broke my heart a lot last year , but they are fun to watch this year. I have to say that I almost didn't participate in my fantasy league this year. I have a hard time with how much my personality changes on Sundays. My laptop has up to the minute stats, and my loyalties change each week, which is hard when I have to root against the Broncos or Cardinals. And I get pretty amped up about some plays. But since I am in first place, I am glad I did it.

Playing catch up

Man, my days seem to fly by. I went to Denver for 2 days in October to force myself from going to work. Didn't stop me from going into work the other few days of my break. I still love my job, but can't wait for the semester to be over so I can have my free time back. I just still feel like I don't know what I am doing. The good thing is that I really like all of my kids, except for one. It's a good thing I have him first thing in the morning so he is out of the way.
While in Denver, I got to spend a little quality time with my niece. She wouldn't let go of mom, but at least I got to make faces at her. I knitted her a pumpkin hat for Halloween.On the other side of the country, my niece Anna, also dressed for Halloween. She went as one of my most favorite animals of all time, the pink flamingo.

I also bought a bike. I rode to work this morning, and back this afternoon. I already feel the pain. Tomorrow will be brutal. I ordered some fabric from a place in NY to make covers for my baskets. I'll snap a picture once they are done so you can see how fun it is. I am a little wobbly, but got some good speed. At least I worked out. And I didn't stay at work late because I knew I had to get home before dark. So I think it will be good for me. My goal is to ride twice a week. That is almost 12 miles round trip.
Congratulations to our new president elect Obama. The world was a much brighter place today.
