Finally! A Monday morning that, while I am exhausted, I'm a happy camper because my Bengals got a big win yesterday. Between an early bye week, two losses and a tie- my guys hadn't won in over a month so it was due time. Another on-the-edge-of-your-seat kinda' win, but I'll take it! You'd think I'd be used to these nail-biter games by now but I'm not. I'm emotionally drained each and every Sunday no matter the outcome.
You'd think when I had a busy working weekend I'd try to get as much sleep as I can, or not put anything else on my to-list for the time being. But with my backwards way of thinking I always tend to do more, accomplish more and squeeze in more when I'm busiest. It's like my way of telling my job, "Too bad! You aren't going to suck all the life out of me!" Even though sometimes I feel like it is! So I cranked the tunes and lit a favorite candle and got to work.
And what night of pumpkin carving could be complete without propping up our pumpkins inside for a little bit and watching a Halloween classic?! You'd think Jared and I would be sick of the Great Pumpkin by now (I can't count how many times I've watched it) but nope- I'll love it forever!
