Oh Hey Friday!: September 11, 2015

It's Oh Hey Friday! time, hosted by September FARM. The idea is that you talk about five things -- any five things, themed or random -- and away we go!

The Jumping Back In Edition! 

My blog has been quiet for a while. Crickets chirping, dusty cobwebs (like in the Haunted Mansion) quiet. I don't have any substantial reason for this radio silence. It's actually pretty lame. See, I got behind on my weekly recaps and I wanted to get current on those before I tackled anything new. Because I am "lists" sort of girl and I like to cross things off my list before moving on to any related tasks. Only work got a little busy and I found myself falling further and further behind. Oh, the drafts are there, framework ready to be filled in with the minutiae that probably only I care about, but hey, this is my little corner of internet, right? Before I get myself off on a tangent...I came to the conclusion that if I waited to get caught up, I wouldn't do anything except collect unpublished drafts for the rest of time. So I'm jumping back in with current thoughts today, and I'll just back publish those drafts retroactively as I get them fleshed out. My plan is that forward progress will also lead to being caught up. (It makes sense in my head, anyway.)

I wish someone could explain to me the phenomenon that makes short work weeks feel twice as long as regular work weeks. Because, honestly, I thought Tuesday was both Monday *and* Wednesday. I spent Wednesday convinced it was Thursday, only to discover that my least favorite day of the week was going to Groundhog Day me, when, surprise! Look, it's the real Thursday now...only you're going to think it's Friday, like you always do. What I'm taking the scenic route to saying is that I'm done with this week.

This past Sunday, T went to WDW with me for the second time in three weekends. I typically Disney solo (unless I have someone visiting from out of town -- I really need some local passholders to befriend or something), so for T to go twice with me, while we're still entrenched in summer was like I'd won the lottery. We'll overlook the fact that we ate dinner, walked around World Showcase, rode Spaceship Earth, and then donned our ponchos for the return trek to the truck because, being the rainy season (and an extra rainy one at that), it decided to let loose on us, and our Fast Pass for Test Track was rained out. Even so, there's nothing like being at my favorite place with my favorite person.

Opening Night for the 2015 NFL season was last night. Yes, I'm a fan of the most hated team in football. I have no desire to attend a live NFL game, ever, but man, that crowd in Foxborough last night was electric. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Angry Brady on the field. If the defense can sort itself out -- and I think it can, because it showed glimpses of being good, between allowing Big Ben opportunities to launch the ball halfway down the field -- I think this team can be crazy good. Only time will tell, but if they keep playing angry, this is going to be a heck of an interesting season.

I bought a couple of new long sleeve tops from Gap, when I was able to combine a sale with a promo code. My closet is top heavy with short sleeved and sleeveless tops (for obvious reasons), but we do get our share of chillier days scattered throughout the six months of not-summer, plus I travel to places outside of Florida, so something a smidge warmer is necessary to have on hand. I had to retire a couple of long sleeve tops when summer started, so they needed replacing, is what I'm  getting at. I kept one of them, but I had to send the other one back, because the way it was cut made it look like I had bat wings and that would be a no. Just no.

4 with their own thoughts:

1) Jealous of your many many trips to WDW this month!!
2) I really need to move there so you will have another local to go to the parks with! Seriously!
3) I will have a TON load of sweaters to get rid of if and when I finally move there!! Like a whole lot!

1. Two of the three were cut short by rain, but still! I am so spoiled. And Food & Wine Fest starts on the 25th, so I am sure I will be up there nearly every weekend from then til it ends.
2. YES. Yes, you do.
3. I'd hang onto some light weight sweaters (I have about a half dozen) and one or two regular weight ones for the random really cool days or travel to places that get winter, if and when. ;-)

Oh yes, I would have to hold on to quite a few - I'm a sweater junkie. I love Fall just so I can wear my sweaters.

Been missing your posts! But I'm in the same boat. I've taken to "private" blogging, recording my days. I started it thinking, I'll cut and paste parts of it over onto public posts. But alas, I have not done it. Still, I mostly blog for me, to record things, so it's working fairly well. I miss reading your posts, and boy oh boy, can't wait for all the foodie posts from Disney starting soon! :)
