Okay, so I was very excited about the up coming BYU season after the first game. Now we are a month in and are 1-3. It's been tough to watch the last couple games. Yesterday was hard. I was up at three after watching Arthur overnight. As anyone in my family will tell you I am not a pleasant person when I am tired. I get very grouchy. The game was going bad, the guys behind me were annoying, one of them kept yelling and would spit when he yelled and I was directly in its path. By half time I was kind of done. Luckily Emily was with me. We ended up sharing a dippin dots, yum! and going to the cougar den and buying some new things. Unfortunately, retail therapy works really well for me. The second half went better than the first, but they were too far behind. We lost. Still, I'm grateful for Emily and Lindsay (through texts) help me out of my mood and BYU can only go up from here. I am still going to be optimistic about the games to come.
Lately I have been hearing a lot of sadness. I am a venting post for some of my friends so when they can't stand it anymore and they just need someone to release to I am there. I don't mind. I completely understand the need for a good venting. Believe me, I have been in the same position. But at times it can weigh you down as well. Everything piling on everything and you need to be strong and give words of encouragement and you wonder how you can get out of there. Some times it is something as simple as cheese fries or ice cream. Not bad helpers. Other times its going to your own personal ventee. Thanks Mom! And sometimes it is a matter of self-revelation. Always the best really but usually the hardest to do. When I was in Seminary I had a teacher that told us all to put our shoe in a pile. Then he told us that shoe was all our troubles. He said that when looking at others troubles most people would hurry and pick up their own trials and happily leave. I have had trials lately. Things that would seem small to others but really hurt me. But then I look at others and its true. I would choose my own trials. I have an amazing family that will help me through anything. Great friends to help me destress. And a wonderful life full of possibilities. What an amazing world to live in.
Today was the first BYU game of the new season. I love going to the games. Over half my family counts down to the first game. We were not disappointed. There was some worries going in. Our quarterback along with many other critical members of the team graduated last year and the new team is young. They have two quarterbacks switching off and three different tight ends, it was going to be interesting to see where these changes led. The first quarter started off rocky and I will admit I had my doubts. Washington scored first putting us behind less than five minutes into the game. Then BYU's first score come from a safety,which was kind of cool because I had never seen one scored before, but disappointing that the other team had to score for us. In the second quarter things started picking up and I saw a glimmer of hope. Still, at the half we were down 13 to 17. Then the second half started and I don't know what Coach Bronco said but they got their rhythm. Washington wasn't able to score again and it ended with a cougar win of 23 to 17. Next week is an away game so I am predicting another shaky start but in the end I am envisioning good things happening for BYU this season. GO COUGARS!
Okay, so I've been saying if I get published I want to start a blog and so I hadn't yet. What would I have to write about? I still am kind of in that place but I am bored right now and was reading other blogs and decided to go for it. It has been a full week. My little nanny girl, Annie started kindergarten which leaves me more time for other things, at least that is what I tell myself. Really it breaks my heart. It's only a couple hours but I miss her like crazy and the end of this job, that I have had pretty much since they found out they were even pregnant Annie, is in sight. One more year. I also found out today that that my sister is having a girl. She already has one little boy, Logan. We all love him a ton and are excited for our new addition. Beyond that it's just trying to get the house ready so my sister and her family can move in in the next couple weeks. Man, I don't know if this helped. Sure I was less bored typing it, but did everyone else get bored reading it. Hey, first post. Give me a chance. Maybe something more interesting will come along tomorrow :).
I am a nanny and a student as well as an aspiring author. I love to read and write and hate math, which is unfortunately the class I'm stuck on. I have a wonderful family and great kids to watch. I have a pretty great life.
