I’ve been sitting in my robe since 7:30 AM. I was supposed to be close to the football field where my nephew plays football, but going to sleep at 8:30 PM last night had me with a headache this morning. I did a little tidying around the house which eventually led to me crawling back in the bed and napping for 3 hours. This week has truly drained me so resting was definitely in the plans for this weekend. The perfect way to get that rest is when it happens organically. Like when you’re reading something and you blink and then 3 hours have passed. Unplanned naps are absolutely undefeated and necessary.
This is my last Saturday where I can wake up when I want before I’m on the soccer and football fields. My son expressed a few months back that he wanted to get back into soccer so we joined a recreational league, my daughter is finishing up her last year of junior high cheering, and I’m gearing up for tailgating and hitting the road to follow Southern University Jags during their football season. Which, by the way, we are beginning to get really serious about since we’re attending the Cotton Bowl at the Texas State Fair, Homecoming, the SU vs JSU game in Mississippi, and the infamous Bayou Classic game in New Orleans. Besides watching my nephew play, this is literally the only time I watch football. The energy of SU Jag fans is truly unmatched.
The rest of this weekend will be filled with binge-watching Mindhunters, finishing Binti, and then starting Mind Hunter. The purging, organizing, and cleaning I managed to do over my Labor Day vacation has really come through in the clutch.
