Tailgating in Aggieland

This year we tailgated with our friends at the first Aggie game back in September.  Yes, I realize that was several months ago!  So I'm a little behind. :-)  Beth and Luke were in awe of everything going on around us- the thousands of people, the corps marching into the stadium and the band, Rudder Fountain, and everything else!  It was my first time to be back since the MSC had been remodeled- wow!  I am having a bit of a difficult time comprehending that it's been 7 years since my time on campus, but on the other hand it definitely feels like a lifetime ago! 

Funny story- we were walking through the MSC area heading toward the stadium, and the crowd was thick.  I have my hair back and my sunglasses on, I think I had Jack in my sling but I don't remember.  I do know that Ryan had Beth and Luke with him.  So I'm walking through the crowd (sort of alone since Ryan is about 30 feet ahead of me) and a woman stops me and asks if I'm Michael's sister.  I say yes, I have a brother named Michael, then she told me that she follows my blog and told me that my kids were sweet and a few other nice things.  I have to admit, I was a little flattered but also very weirded out!  I know I've always kept my blog public but this was one of those strange times that a person- a very nice person in this instance, luckily- could pick me out of a crowd of thousands!

I've often wondered about making my blog private but on the other hand I've shared things here that I feel are motivating and helpful to other moms who read here.  At least that's what I've been told. :-)  So for now I'll keep it public...For now...

Coming Soon

It's so strange to me that something that was such a huge part of my life feels like such a stranger now...  I have lots of fun things to write about but my current excuse is that my computer is acting like a piece of junk.  Remember when I got this thing when Luke was a baby?  Yeah, I blogged about it, because I blogged about everything then. ;-)  It's been a little over three years, I feel like a computer should last longer than that!  Whatever the case, tomorrow we're going to wipe out the hard drive on this bad boy and see if starting all over again with Windows 8 will help anything, so tonight I'm in high-gear trying to make sure every little file is backed up!  If it doesn't help then I anticipate a new Mac in my future (though I'd really rather wait and not drop money on a new computer right after the holidays!).

Just to keep you waiting, here's what I have coming up on my blog...
