With reckless abandon

Or a well thought-out idea of slight rebellion.

"And though the course may change sometimes rivers always reach the sea"
"no storm or heavy weather will rock the boat you'll see"

And we absolutely love them.

I'm an editor. Can I just say something really quick? EEEEKKK!

Thanks, I feel better.

It's only a weekly page, but it's more than I have ever done before. I'll also be heading into two-a-days next week, and "football tab hell," as John calls it, which is the time of year where we push wayyyy too hard to put together a full-sized preview of every football team in the area. Did I mention that they removed the part-time sports writing position? Because they did. 

Which's just me and John. He must have had so much faith in me to do this job with him, because I happen to know that all the other people who made it to the final cut had more experience than me. He took me to lunch and literally blind-sided me with an interview in which I needed to sell him on the idea of hiring me. Something must have worked, although I may never know what it is.

Maybe it's because we have similar tastes in bad baseball teams.

Working working work

I'm working and working and working, and two-a-day practices haven't even started yet. That's next week.

Hopefully we'll find some relax time and go-to-Eugene time because we have some errands and surprises and fun to do there.

I can't complain about my job though. It pays, and I have a super duper nice sports editor who truly appreciates having me around for football season, and truly loves that football is my favorite time of the year. I'll gladly help take some of the craziness of football off his back.

Of course, it's more difficult to work when I have a cute husband sitting at home not working. :)

It's the most wonderful time of the year

And it's not Christmas. FOOTBALL AHHHHH!!!!

I'm not sure how to portray just how excited football season makes me. The air seems cleaner. The sky bluer. Sleep comes naturally, and there's always something on TV during the weekends.

I got married, moved to Oregon, went to Canada on our honeymoon and now football starts. Life couldn't be more perfect. 

If only our apartment could double in size so we could find room to fit everything we got from the wedding...

On to writing some thank you notes, the best part of being married. Right? Right?
