Life has been crazy lately. I have felt for the last week or so that I was hanging on by a rope. But every time I felt my hands begin to slip, God knotted the rope around my fists and I could hang on. It’s been good, but very stressful. I’ve been so busy I’ve barely had time to breathe, and this weekend, when I finally crashed, I was so exhausted that I felt my body wasn’t so much experiencing sleep as just gulping it down. But things are more calm now. I’m on fall break for two weeks, and I have a relaxing Sunday afternoon before me, the first one in several weeks. I’m lying on the couch, surrounded by books and magazines, a sweet little nap in my immediate future before I make lasagna for dinner. I should be able to post more often now. Life is good!
Joe and I went to the UK/WKU game last night in Lexington. I know it makes me a traitor, but I’m really glad Kentucky won. I didn’t go to Western for its sports program anyway, and in this family, if I’m going to be a fan of anyone, it better be UK. It was a fun game to watch! Hard to believe I actually like football now, but I definitely do.
The only down side to the game was the absolute morons behind us. I think I attract these people. They were foul-mouthed and ignorant, and I felt terrible for the parents with young children around us, because their language belonged in a rated R movie, not a family setting. At first I was embarrassed, because they were in red, and I thought, Great. The idiots are from my alma mater. But as their conversation continued, they revealed that they were in fact–you guessed it–from Louisville. And once again, all is right with the world.
