The death of me

The Georgia Bulldogs are going to be the death of me. I love me some Dawgs. But the stress. I. can't. handle. the. stress. They always do this to me. They make a close game out of something that never should have been. The Sucky Carolina Gamecocks. I mean--come on. The QB's name is Smelley and the PK is Succup. They deserve to lose. But the Dawgs made it a close one. A highly superior defense fell apart in the second half and a highly superior offense struggled to find its stride in the first. Let me tell you why they are killing me. My blood pressure rises to a level where my head is pounding. I have to leave the room to regain consciousness or at least to avoid losing it. I think I am going to develop an aneurysm from this unhealthy rise in my blood pressure. But they won..and after all, that is what matters!! 3-0, baby. 3-0! So what if I am lying on the couch, bleeding internally. The Dawgs are winning!

We had a good day at my niece's birthday party. She had it at Pump It Up. I don't know if this is a chain or an individual place, but if you don't know what it is, it is so cool. They have two different play areas that are rented out for birthday parties. They have inflatable obstacle courses, a huge inflatable slide, a bouncy basketball court, and a round bouncy thing. It is a two- hour party. The kids (and some adults) play for about 1 1/2 hours, then you go to the party room where they serve the food and cake. It costs about $275 but there is no setup, no cleanup, they supply everything but the cake, and the kids are entertained outside of your house for 2 hours. This is definitely a consideration for Bro Man's party b/c it is in January and it ALWAYS rains on his party day. ALWAYS!

Well, the girls are spending the night with my parents and I have been awake since 3:30, so I think I am going to get some shut eye--while I can. Tomorrow I have to do lesson plans and read two articles in my textbook. You think I would take advantage of the girls being gone and get some of that done now--but nope. I am a procrastinator, and it would give procrastinators everywhere a bad name. And I can't take that kind of pressure. Just knowing that procrastinators everywhere would be blaming me...even thinking about it makes me break out in hives!!

You know I could've written every word of this first paragraph. My mom was calling me from Warner Robins every 10 minutes, frantically yelling, "They're in fine fashion--gonna blow it this early in the season--I hate Spurrier--we are better than this!" I finally had to tell her, in the final minutes of the 4th quarter, "Mom--don't give up--it's not over yet."

Thank God I was right. But we gotta get the act together and perform like a championship team this weekend...they CAN do it. I want them to do it.

Is Knowshown reminding you of Herschel or what? He's fantastic.

Oh, and I watched the USC/OSU game after ours...and lemme tell you, if it comes down to us vs. USC, I am very, very afraid.
