I'm not a fair weathered fan

Rise and shout the Cougars are out.  Maybe not "along the trail to fame and glory" but I still was dressed in my Cougar blue and surrounded by alma mater like myself.

They might not have "unfolded the vic'try story".  But I did get to have a weekend away with this dood and see my old stomping grounds.

(Side note: Don't panic if you don't recognize half of the campus.  I thought I was having early onset stages of dementia but in fact it was just all the remodeling they've done since I graduated.)

They weren't exACTly "on to vanquish the foe" but those "alma mater's sons and daughters" (read: me) were reminded how gorge that part of the country is.  

"As I joined in song.....I praised and my faith was strong.....and I raised my colors high in the blue (even if just for a field goal, every point counts) and cheered the cougars of BYU."

(Side note: We've decided that the next year or two is gonna be a "rebuilding and gaining experience" year.)

In other news, we had time to see THIS person and THIS person and even my awesome cousin J-train and his adorable wifey.  Plus we went here:

I'd do it all over again.  Even if the Cougs lost every time.

For the record

If I had a girl, I'd want her to look like this.

Life is like a box of chocolates

I always know what I'm gonna get (dark chocolate almonds from Trader Joe's fer super duh)

To force myself to do a new blog post instead of dwell on the general boringness of my life I decided to make a list of things I've done or do. In no particular order,...

1. Last week I did 6 loads of laundry.

2. Then I did 3 more.

3. Then I drank 6 cans of Diet DP.

4. In one day

5. Last weekend I went to soccer and football games.

6. "Our" teams always lose.

7. I really shouldn't let that bother me as much as I do.

8. Neither should the softness of my rear end.

9. But it does.

10. And then I go into the kitchen and eat a piece of pizza.

11. Cuz I don't cook much lately.

12. Is that so wrong?

13. I'm thinking of becoming a feminist just for this reason.

14. The older my kids get the more activities they sign up for.

15. This is in direct NONcorrelation to how much more free time I'm supposed to be having since "all of my kids are in school".

16. Which is why I had another soda

17. My knee is still giving me big problems. Despite my commitment to run in THIS race next month.

18. If you clicked that link up there you know how scary the numbers 200 in 24 with 12 are.

19. Which is really why I should stop eating this cookie I just got from the pantry.

20. The special running guy at the special running store assures me my special running arch supports are going to solve all of my problems.

21. I hope he put my mental lapses in that contract. In writing.

22. I was in the ER this week with, what I was sure, was going to be my end. Brain tumor. Hemorrhage. Aneurysm. Stroke. Any of those were on my list of possibilities. Considering I thought I was going to die from the pain in my head it would make sense my thoughts would go there.

23. Whispering hurt.

24. And light. And general sounds of any kind. And vomiting. Lotsa vomiting. And allasudden my vision was all......mushy.

25. Good news!! Cat scans are awesome. And they tell you that you are not going to die!!

26. Although I was secretly hoping while laying with an IV in my arm that the doctor would come in and tell me that I wasn't allowed to run in ANY races for at least ::counting on my fingers:: 40 days.

27. He didn't tell me that.

28. Turns out you can develop migraines at the very young age of 35. Also, turns out 1 in every 10 people react OPPOSITE when given migraine medication.

29. Guess who is the one in 10? ::raising hand::

30. I know none of you are surprised by this. AV and I certainly weren't.

31. Speaking of my mom, she tried not to laugh when the doctor told me that.

32. And then he gave me morphine.

33. And then I went home and had a soda.

34. And did another load of laundry.

35. The end.

Hard to believe slash the funniest thing I've ever seen

Recently while at AV's house and chatting I was caught mid-sentence and totally mesmerized by this:
