We Make It Harder Than It Has to Be

Here are more photos from Sunday. This is a sign by Kinnick stadium. Pretty funny, huh?

So, I keep forgetting to mention that I'm doing the NaBloPoMo (I'm still referring to it as NaBloMe too, because I'm that immature) thing again this year. It's where you commit to writing a blog post every day throughout November. It usually isn't too tough for me, except during the weekends. I almost never write on Friday nights and Saturday can be tricky for me too. I figure I can easily wienie my way around that by posting just photos or things from my old blog. Since not as many people read my blog on the weekends, I feel a little freer to experiment for some reason. So, maybe I'll do some even dorkier writing on Friday night. I guess you've all been warned.

Here is some seating at the stadium.

I'm not sure what I'll do about a post tomorrow night. I was originally thinking I'd stay home, because I think I'm getting my cold back and a friend of mine burned some movies for me to watch. Then I got a call from the guy I dated last Winter. He said he was going to be in town for the game and would be at The Dublin at 9, if I wanted to meet him there for a drink. I haven't seen him since that wedding in June. We've texted and talked on the phone a few times since then, but nothing of any real depth. my friend K. and her boyfriend A. will be there and I'm sure Erik called a lot of other people to meet him too, so it should be a fun evening. I don't know how long I'll stay out though. I'm just going to see how I feel.

Since there's a home game and it doesn't start until 2:30 in the afternoon, the girls will be working most of the day. Hopefully, it won't be too cold and/or snowy for them. As usual, part of my Saturday plan is to clean my house. Looking around, I think I might need a couple of Saturdays in a row to do all that needs to be done around here, but I'm going to do my damnedest to make a big dent.

This is the scoreboard.

Saturday night is a crap shoot. Right now, I have no plans. I still have a rain check for that stay at home date with myself and a bottle of wine. I'm not holding myself to it, just in case it doesn't happen. I'd hate to disappoint myself and get all quiet and huffy and then when I ask myself what's wrong, I reply, "Nothing," and then I have to go to all that work to figure out exactly why I'm pissed off, and then try to fix it by kissing my own ass until it all blows over.

How about you all? Will you be able to hold to your plans with yourself, or will you beating yourselves up?

Watching movies sounds like a plan.. but I think you ought to go and check out this guy at the bar..

we have the usual shopping to do and I need to get a haircut..

I try not to make promises to myself. Kissing my own ass just plain sucks.

I love the second photo - that sky is beautiful and it looks neat against the metal bleachers.

We'll be celebrating my nephew's 18th birthday on Sunday, so my mom and I will be shopping tomorrow.

I hope your cold doesn't stay for long! People in my office are getting laryngitis. Ick.

NoRegrets said... should make a video of you kissing your own ass. You'd make millions. Of course, you might not want to show your face in public again...

I have a bottle of wine in the fridge that I just might drink tonight as I quilt and make a pie for my friend.

I have so much cleaning/picking up/organizing to do I feel quite overwhelmed. But trying to do it a little bit at a time.

Do you know any churlish dwarves? Someone found my blog while searching Google for a picture a churlish dwarve.

Ooh. I feel really really clever because I remember that your last post when it was its first post.

And this weekend? There are certain weeks when I can't tell the difference btwn wks/wkends. This is one of them. I'll probably visit your blog and do more of my vicarious-ness-ing.

Sounds like a typical low key Churlita weekend, which when we read about what actually happened on Monday turns out to be not so low key after all.... whew!

I'm going to treat myself right this weekend so that I have nothing to apologize for.

I've already dated the guy at the bar, so I'm done checking him out. I'll definitely have a beer with him and our mutual friends though, and that should be fun.


At least you don't lie to yourself. That's so hurtful.


Thanks about the photo. It was one of my favorites from that shoot.

I'm sure my daughters and my co-workers would be thrilled if I got laryngitis.


I know. I thought about that too. Damn. I must be a lot more limber than I thought. You'd think I'd be more popular.


I wish I did. You might want to direct those people to the LOTR movies. I recall a particularly churlish dwarf in that series.

Booda Baby,

Maybe I'll check in on your blog too and we can live vicariously through each other.


I love it when you're good to yourself. You totally deserve yourself.

I may end up being more mellow than I normally am. This cold is really cramping my style.

I'm horrible about maintaining plans. I tend to live by the seat of my pants for that very reason. Makes things a bit easier for me.

The first sign is only going to make folks want to drink more beyond that point.
