Fall/Football/Funk

I survived September.  It used to be my favorite month, but this year I’m just happy that I made it through.  Why, you ask?

FREAKING FOOTBALL SEASON.  I’m lookin’ at you, Georgia Tech.

Now don’t get me wrong: I like college football, and I like tailgating.  But this year we had 4 home games IN A ROW in September.  IN A ROW!!!  Every Saturday in September was spent tailgating for Georgia Tech football.

I couldn’t get my oil changed.  I couldn’t set up appointments to look at Craigslist furniture.  I couldn’t get any home improvement projects done that take longer than a Sunday afternoon.  It was EXHAUSTING.

And our team also lost a lot.

The real tease is that after a crappy loss, hubs will be like, screw this next week let’s not even tailgate and we’ll leave at halftime!  And then by the following Friday he’s all how many kegs should I get for the tailgate tomorrow?  He should know by now not to get my hopes up in such a way.

Anyway, now it’s October and we have 3 homes games left over the next 2 months.  I suppose that’s the plus side to all of this griping.

Hubs and I both turned 29 this past month.  We are now fully immersed in the final year of our twenties.  I should care more, but I don’t.  It’s life, we get older, I’m okay with it.  But check back with me in a year when I’m thirty and lamenting the loss of my youth.

I pre-ordered the iPhone 5 exactly 3 weeks ago.  My ship date was 14-21 days.  AT&T is still “processing” my order.  Which wouldn’t be a problem except:

I have never actually needed a new phone until now.  I kept my 3GS for 2.5 years without issue.  But now it’s on its last leg.  Ship swiftly, AT&T!

What else what else…

EVERYONE I KNOW IS PREGNANT.  At least that’s how it feels.  I know at least 7 people who are just entering their second trimester.  Hubs’s reaction every time I tell him a new person is preggo is what were people DOING in May? and if they live in close proximity to us it’s DON’T DRINK THE WATER!

We like babies.  We’re just not there yet.

My October is going to be filled with home improvement projects and pumpkin-flavored everything.  Maybe October should be my new favorite month…
