So, um, yeah... just a fun (and silly) little 'slice-o-life' from last fall! Oh, and a little known fact about me... I'm a crazy fanatical school/club/athletic fan! LOL
(And, wow... I packed a lot of stuff on this page! Whew!)
Oh, and I really don't like these selfies, but they help tell the story!


JOURNALING
AH, YEAH.
This is me. So me. Decked out in school colors. Decal on my car. Ah, yeah... *similey* And, why, yes... I was cheerleader in high school... why do you ask? (hahaha) I’ve always been a avid supporter of the teams I love and the schools I attended. And, when I had kids, that spirit carried on and I was the parent that always wore team colors or spirit wear and had a decal in my rear car window! (One thing I haven‘t done yet is fly a team flag at the house... hmmmm...) And even though I’m not physically in Minnesota, yep... I’ve got Gopher spirit goin’ on! If Shannon has a UM soccer game, I sport the maroon and gold (along with my special “soccer mom” necklace, of course!). And, if the Gophers have a football game, out comes the UM spirit wear, too! Which must’ve been the reason they started out the season so great, right? Win after win... 8-2 with only 3 games remaining. And, this included beating perennial powerhouses Nebraska and Penn State. It must’ve been my spirit! Right...?
AND THEN THIS HAPPENED.
They lost. To Wisconsin (who was highly ranked, but still...). At the end of the game, it dawned on me... oh, my gosh! I hadn’t put on a UM tee... gasp!
Oh, no! What did I (not) do? Oh, geez... and, so, I confessed to my daughter. And, here’s what Shannon had to say about that...
The text message pictured... in case it's hard to read! Yes, a bit tongue-in-cheek!
ME: And, I just realized why the Gophers lost... I was in my jammie shirt and NOT my Minnesota shirt!
SHANNON: WOW
SHANNON: HOW DARE YOU
ME: I'm appalled at myself!
SHANNON: well, you're no longer welcome in the state of minnesota!
ME: *sad face*
SHANNON: good thing i'm coming home for thanksgiving or we could've had a problem!
