Time Out

Wow! I knew the holidays were a busy time for everyone, but sheesh! We had our annual realization about mid-October of what needed to be crammed in until the end of the year, but failed to consider just how packed that would be.
The blitz all started with a trip to Nashville mid-November for the UK/Vandy game. My parents didn't get season tickets this year and luckily Vandy wasn't any good, so buying was no problem. Oh and UK won, so that was good.

Thanksgiving was spent in Maysville. Pretty much same old-same old. Ate way too much, watched a lot of football, and slept. Luckily, Husband had the day after off so we got to enjoy the turkey and naps. Husband then had the whole next week off, too! Except that I got crazy sick. I had symptoms of about 3 different illnesses and finally went to the dr. mid week and got a Z-Pack. I'm much better!

This past weekend, Husband's parents came to town with their Jeep so we could get a big enough tree to not be dwarfed in our living room. We had a nice little visit with them, complete with UK beating UNC in basketball (which is apparently a big deal) and Cincinnati beating Pitt in football!

Our activities don't stop there! Hold on to your hats. This week we plan on decorating said tree (while watching Christmas specials and maybe even with a fire in the fireplace) and picking up one of our Christmas presents, which was delivered to our local Wal-Mart (and our furnishing of the house begins!).

Then, we're heading back to Maysville for Christmas with Husband's family (although no one's really exchanging gifts this year, but Mawmaw's cooking, so it's all the same thing).

Next weekend, my best friend since first grade (that's been almost 20 years y'all...Holy crap I just realized how old that makes me!) is getting married in Flo-town, so we're off to Alabama for the weekend! I've got a short to-do list there, such as eating Ricatoni's (who, luckily, is catering the rehearsal dinner! Score!), and hopefully church. I love that church so much at Christmastime. It's even more beautiful than normal.

The next weekend in Christmas and we'll be in Nashville again. My sister and grandma are both flying in, so we'll have a full house!

Are you worn out yet? Hope not, since the busiest part is coming! With Cincy's win (remember I mentioned that?), they won the Big East Conference and automatic bid to a BCS game. Whoop-dee-do, right? That's not SEC, so who cares? Well, my dad just happens to be a UC alum, so HE cares! This is probably Cincy's only chance at a BCS game, so we're pretty excited. Therefore, as soon as Husband is off work on New Year's Eve, we will once again be heading to Nashville and will get up bright and early New Year's Day to head to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl!!!! Ball game Friday, return to Nashville, return home Sunday so husband can be back at work Monday. We pretty much plan on seeing UC get slaughtered (they play Florida), but it will still be fun times! If only Texas had shanked their field goal another foot or two to the left, my parents would be headed to Pasadena for the NATIONAL TITLE (but we probably wouldn't have gotten to go, so I'm OK with Sugar)! OOOOOOOOOH C-A-T-S (bear)CATS (bear)CATS (bear) CATS!
