"There's Only ONE October!!"

So I have a little secret...kind of.

Unless you really know me, or you spend A LOT of time with me, you would probably never guess that I adore baseball...Especially if the Red Sox are playing. Recently, one of my co-workers said to me, " I never would have guessed that you were interested in baseball the first time I met you." It was funny that she said that, but didn't really surprise me. Apparently, I don't have the "I love baseball" girl kind of air. Not sure exactly how I come off the first time people meet me, but apparently it doesn't scream baseball...

All of that to say, the Red Sox are rocking post-season baseball. Their last four games have been great, even the one they lost. There have been extra innings and runs made on 3-2 counts galore. It has been beautiful. I can't wait to see the American League Championship Series and then the World Series start. I can't wait to see the Red Sox running onto the field with the 2008 World Series trophy in hand. I am excited about the games ahead and the wins ahead. So fun!!

There are other things I love about October too...Like the fact that it is finally 95 degrees and not 105 degrees here in Texas. I like that I know at somepoint in the future, I will be able to wear long sleeves and dream about wearing scarves. I like that Christmas is closer. I like that soon it will be cool enought to turn off the ac...which means smaller electric bills. Which is always beautiful.

There is only one downside to this fall, and all the GREAT things in contains. I have to get a flu shot this year. I have NEVER gotten a flu shot....I have had the flu once, a million (or ten) years ago...Not in high school, not in college did I ever get the flu, but this year, I have to. I hate shots!!! So, we will see how it goes...I better not get sick after getting the shot.

Happy Fall

It will probably be ok and you won't get the flu. Why do you have to get the shot anyway? I need to go get one too. Thanks for the reminder. Becca can't afford to get the flu. She is too valuable around the house. And, I promise you, if I am nasty sick and feel horrible. I will not be watching kids if Mike isn't deployed. The United States Air Force can give that man the day off because his wife might possibly leave him if he doesn't come home and watch the children.

Wow. Tell us how you really feel Becca....

sorry. Not sure where that came from. It's been a long day I guess. You called me the other day right? I didn't call you back. Sorry. Try me again. Or I'll try you. Right now is a good time I guess. Get your phone out.
