That cold weather the forecast promised has rolled in. Specifically, it rolled in between about 4:08 and 4:17 on Tuesday afternoon, the exact amount of time it took to go from home to campus. It was weird; it was such a great day - we went running in shorts and t-shirts that morning - and then as we were driving all the leaves were blowing off trees (which made me feel like I was in a fall-themed snow globe) and it became obvious that our balmy southern wind had been replaced by its stronger, northern brother. And no kidding, we got out at the union and it was cold. Maybe fifteen or twenty degrees cooler. I had totally forgotten that could happen.
On the upside, it was Touchdown Tuesday at the bookstore so we went shopping for new Jayhawk gear along with approximately 27,000 other rabid fans. The place was a zoo. Totally worth braving the crowds, though, since everything was thirty percent off and I love a bargain. I mean, we all need to sport the crimson and blue for the upcoming football game! The number two ranking scares me a little and I know we've got a tough game against Mizzou tomorrow, but it's nice to not have to be up in the middle of the night to watch it. And I'm so glad we've taught Wyatt to identify the mighty Jayhawk because he's getting to display that skill quite often.
It's good to be home. It's been hard on the blog though because my mom keeps making me cook and do dishes. Kind of like I'm Cinderella.
Okay, not really. I've just been busy playing with my nephews, hanging out with my sister, absorbing America and making my share of food for two thanksgiving get-togethers. So while I feel very behind in blogging, perhaps it's a good sign that I'm very invested in my non-computer life at the moment. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
