Arts & Crafts Fair
Football season is slowly winding down. LSU is 10 and 1 and only has 1 more game before the bowl game. It is impossible for us to get to the SEC championship game. Unless of course Alabama manages to beat Auburn this Friday, then maybe? I'm not sure. But without football what shall there be? Oh yeah, baseball starts in February! (Our basketball team is still "rebuilding" and not so good).
The rumors are circulating as to what bowl game we will end up in. According to my father (and he's always right or so it seems) they will be headed to the Cotton Bowl. Although that is now held in the new Dallas Cowboys stadium, I'm not really happy about that. Of course I think we should be in the BCS championship! The Sugar Bowl will try to avoid taking us if they can since we are pretty much in their backyard and it means less tourist dollars for New Orleans. The Sugar Bowl is never happy when LSU comes to town. We buy the tickets just no need to stay in the hotels!
I am acutally way ahead this year! I set a goal of buying all gifts by December 1 and I think I am on track. I only have 2 more gifts to buy and the two that remain are turning out to be my toughest to get. I don't want to just settle on something but that may be what happens!
I plan on pulling out the decorations either Friday or Saturday. Probably Saturday as I traditionally decorate while watching the LSU Arkansas game! I will have to do some cleaning this week though to make room for my tree. I have a little apartment and I don't have a lot of room to put up a tree.
Duke is doing well, or so it seems! I am supposed to watch him for behaviorial changes. Does eating count as a behaviorial change? He ate very little before being put on this medication and now he eats all the time! Will I now end up with a little butterball? Hopefully not. He still runs around like a little maniac and likes to play. I hope that will counteract all the extra calories he is now eating.
New Kids on the Block
Yes, I admit it. I am a NKOTB fan! Yes, I did watch them on the American Music Awards last night (along with the performance by my all-time favorite Bon Jovi!). NKOTB has currently joined with the Backstreet Boys for a concert tour. As of last night, they had only announced 7 dates, most of them in Canada BUT today an announcement came out with a bunch more dates. They are coming to our area! Yay! My friends and I are already on top of this and planning our trip to Lafayette to see the concert!
Mad Tea Party
In my quest to complete another stitching goal for this year, I've been working on HAED's Mad Tea Party. I am so close to finishing this one page! I really want to get it done so I can scratch it off the list and not carry it over to next year!
