I'm Back...

It can't be!  It's football season again and I haven't written since the last season ended.  Ok, to be fair, it hasn't been a whole year; here, we play school ball in the spring. I know: weird. We play middle school football in April, when the rest of the free world is playing baseball.  Still, it is the Pacific Northwest, so there is no shortage - even in April - of parkas and wet blankets and sideways rain and inside-out umbrellas.  Like today.  Miserable.

But still. I'm so glad it's football time again! It means that Jack is engaged in sufficient physical activity, which, for some reason, makes him more focused in school.  He sleeps and eats better. There is less time for him to get into trouble outside of his scheduled day. There is less time for me to get disorganized, since I have to be at certain places at certain times, if I'm to hold on to that Mom of the Year  trophy.

Add this to my new love of CrossFit, my recent acceptance into school to complete another Bachelor's degree, the short-lived life of my crappy-ass job because I'm going back to school... and I have to tell you, life is pretty darn good right now.
