Yes, I know I have been remiss lately in updating the blog. I always forget how busy the fall is both at work and back in town. This was the first weekend since August that I haven't been running around like crazy and it felt good to relax close to home. The weeks go by so fast that once in a while you need two days of nothing much to let everything on the mind settle in and refocus.
What kept me out of town last weekend? Messiah homecoming, of course! The usual suspects hung out at casa de Bergey and as usual, we all picked right up where we left off. Going back to see the old campus was nice, and I even ran in to my mentor from student teaching. We hadn't seen each other in four years, and I was so excited to be able to talk with her about where we both are in our lives today. Tim and I even had a little time to hit up Hershey Park - in October they decorate for Halloween and all the little kids run around in costumes. Roller coasters on a fall night are so fun.
Needless to say, I have been watching a whole lot of Sox lately. I always say I hate blowouts, and finally tonight we have a close game going. It's uncomfortably close, with the Rockies now trailing in the 8th by only one run. If my boys pull this off tonight, tomorrow night could be the final game of the series. Either way, it's going to be a late Sunday night before another work week begins. I love October baseball but it isn't good for my sleeping pattern.
As of tomorrow, I will be consumed by Guitar Hero III. The game is waiting for Tim at the mall so as soon as we pick it up, we will be working on our mad guitar skills with every spare minute. My goal is to reach James' level of awesome rocking, but that is going to take a long time.
I can't believe November begins on Thursday. Before we all know it we are going to be celebrating the holidays and snow will be falling. Is it too early to dream of snow days?
