Wooooooooo Pig Sooooie!

It is a happy happy day for me when Arkansas Razorback games are televised nationally!! Such was the case today. I had forgotten until my sister called to remind me. So I parked my rear in front of the television and enjoyed three hours of fall football bliss. As usual, it was a nail-biting, breath-holding, fight-to-the-double-overtime-finish, but the Hogs won and I was happy! Razorback games are one thing that make me homesick. Sarah and I are hoping to make it to a game in October. It probably won't have the same drama as today's game, but we're both getting excited about it! Fun, fun, fun!

Friday, September 22, 2006 has officially arrived. Snow. It's been snowing off and on all day today. Mostly it's been mixed with rain and it hasn't been sticking, but it's definitely snow. More chances of it tomorrow too. And it looks like winter in the mountains west of here...icy roads, blowing snow advisories, FEET of snow, etc. Crazy stuff, huh? We went to some friends house today (kids were out today for a teacher work-day) and they came running upstairs when they spotted the first flakes. They were hoping Monday would be a snow day and were already planning how they'd spend it. I hate to disappoint them, but those days will arrive soon enough! I believe this is the earliest we've seen snow since we've lived here. Yesterday was the official end of summer (today the beginning of fall) and it's felt more like winter around here with highs in the 40s. I'm off to find my fleece pjs and curl up by the fireplace with a cup of chai and another LOST dvd. See ya!
