Get Outa Town -- Quick!

Y'all know how the south feels about high school football? Think Friday Night Lights. And their championship games - Oh. My. Gawd!

So this weekend, Cookeville, Tennessee is hosting the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Championships today through Saturday. After lunch and errands today, we ran into the start of the traffic with all the crazies at the gas station.

Tomorrow we plan on a day escape to Crossville for a little vino shopping and lunch at the State Park restaurant. It's a real hidden treasure. Also, the outlet mall has a model train display that is open on Fridays. Sounds like a good day. Anything away from all the traffic in Town. The games are all being played at Tennessee Tech, and the students have been warned that the parking lots by the stadium will be reserved for the football games. Not that there is much parking at Tech anyway. I bet older daughter is glad she graduated last spring!

Wacky Wednesday

You know you are in bad shape when you have to ask your hubby how old you are and you feel good when he tells you that you are a year younger than you thought. I guess that tells you I've been lying about my age for a while.

I hate winter. Actually I hate the end of daylight savings time. When you live on the eastern edge of the central time zone, it gets dark early. By December 21st you feel like you could just stay in bed all day.

Is it weird that I feel good that I have been using the same bird feeder for about 5 years. What that really means is that the squirrels, while still raiding the bird feeder, are destroying them any more.

Christmas shopping is almost done here! Yay!
