Week 1

So last week flew by, and this week doesn’t seem to be slowing down – not that I’m complaining. I’m up early because I have to fill in for my boss on a conference call today…not that I’m complaining. Seriously. I want to be in his position one day, so this will help with that goal.

In other news, football season started last Thursday, and it could not have come at a better time. I am in three fantasy leagues this year, and as of Houston’s 31-28 win over San Diego last night, I won two of those. And as for the league that I lost in, well, being in 11th place just means more room to move up, right? And I’m not going into Week 2 blind, either. Clearly picking up Jennings on the assumption that his receiving would be enough to outshine Ponder’s poor passing skills was a mistake, so Hartline is going in my flex position this week. Hopefully we’ll see another 20 point week from him.

But fantasy points wasn’t the only thing drawing my attention this weekend.


I also made this football cake to celebrate, complete with embarrassing story of origin, which I will post at a time when I don’t need to be getting ready for work.


I was inspired by the handmade crafts at a local Civil War muster put on by the history museum. Eric went with me to watch a brief reenactment of Gettysburg. Having been to Gettysburg, I wondered if reenacting enthusiasts who get to participate at the actual battlefield refer to it as “the show.”

Not pictured: Smore’s Cookies. Because the Sunday bonfire was cancelled. Sad day.

I got approved for time off in October, and I’m going down South to Melbourne, FL to visit my grandma. I’ll be in for a week of cooking and crafts with one of the coolest ladies I know, and I cannot wait.

For now…I’ve gotta find a defensive end who can put some points on my fantasy score board.

Hi. I live in Michigan, but I'm from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Seattle, and Arkansas (no, not an Army brat). I live with my husband and our cats, Cirilla and Dandelion. I'm a bonafide Salesforce Admin & Marketo Certified Expert. I like to craft. I like to cook. I like to eat and drink. I like to laugh. I like comic books and video games and sci-fi. I like a whole lot of things, and chances are, I will like you! I've also been a lot of things, like a 9-1-1 dispatcher, a teacher, and for a while I wrote obituaries. Right now I am a Salesforce Consultant! Who knew? Friends?
