What's up with that?

I look forward to 3 day weekends like nobody's business. It's like free vacation days thrown in at the best times. Plus it usually means extra food, cookouts, family, friends, etc. And this weekend meant FOOTBALL time!! I'm a little disappointed that I haven't used a pinterest inspiration to create a football themed wreath for the front door, but I digress. 

My Vols started the season off with a win Friday night. I couldn't be happier. I hope they surprise a lot of folks this season. 

Saturday we got together with some friends that just got a great new house. We did a little cooking out, snacking and football watching. The plan for the night was to watch the big Alabama-Michigan game. Wow. How disappointing. I thought it was going to be a close game. However, I didn't see the end of it because Hurricane Issac's storm buddy decided to swoop on through where we were. Lightning struck a transformer practically in the backyard...loudest strike ever. And have I mentioned I am beyond terrified of lightning! Anyways, so we spent the rest of the evening like this...
Hoping and praying the electricity would come back on. We waited out the storm and then headed home late. Luckily we live on the same street as the police department in my little town, so our electricity was on and usually doesn't go out for long. 

Sunday was a lazy day and we watched the Redbox movie that we didn't get to watch earlier...The Hunger Games. Yay, I finally watched it. Now it makes me want to hurry and read book 2 and 3. I have been slacking big time. We were feeling kinda blah so it was nice to just have a lazy day. Little did I know my Labor Day would be much worse. I've spent most the day with crazy hair, in my pajamas, hot and cold at the same time, unable to eat or swallow, sleeping most of the day away. It felt like strep earlier but the way my body is aching I'm starting to think it's something like the flu. I'm so lucky to have such a great guy that puts up with my sick, stinky self. He's been amazing. So amazing he watched while I caught up on my fav reality show of the moment...one he isn't too fond of...
What a trooper, right? 

Here's to hoping my next 3 day weekend is a little bit better! And here's to hoping i can get in at the doc's office early tomorrow!
