Here is something embarrassing about myself that I just noticed. As you know, it is football season, so I find myself, whether I want to or not, watching more football this time of year than I normally would watch any other sport (except when UK Basketball gets good again, then I'll be watching tons of B-ball again) anyway ...
You know when the quarterback "fakes" like he is going to pass the ball, but really already handed the ball off to some other dude who runs fast to try to run it down the field (I realize that if you are a UK football fan, you might be confused right about now. That is because what I am speaking of is what those in the business call an "offense", something UK football apparently doesn't feel is necessary this year. I digress.)
ANYWAY - maybe it's because I'm a girl, or maybe because I don't watch football that often, but I can NEVER figure out who has the ball!! No matter if it's a fake hand-off, faking a fake hand-off, or whatever options there might be that I don't even know about, I am always "faked-out". This makes watching football games that you care about more difficult, mostly because I'll be excited because I think our player is running down the field with the ball, but really, the QB still had the ball, and has subsequently been sacked.
And, I'm guess the person operating the TV camera is always male, because they are rarely fooled! Or maybe it's just practice. But something about being faked-out by something that rarely fools 10 or 11 football players worries me! Maybe there is some sort of class or training to figure this out, I'm not sure, but if so, I would like to take it! I bet there are more people than just me who get confused - I hope ;)
More importantly, Connor took about 4 little baby steps last night in the hallway! So cute! Jamie and I were basically freaking out screaming and cheering that it kind-of freaked Connor out and he sat down! Off to Grandma Sue's house after Connor gets up from his nap to see if he'll do it again for her!! We only have 3 more days until we leave for LA for a week and a half! Seriously, I don't even want to think about having to fly across the country again! Even worse, our flight it as 6 AM, meaning we have to get to the airport at 4:30!! (which, by the way, is when it OPENS!) This obviously cuts WAY into Connor's sleeping ---- seriously, my blood pressure rises just talking about it -- I can't anymore!
While in Cali, Jamie and I will be spending 4 days in Vegas (sans baby) which will hopefully help us get over the flight and all the stress that accompanies taking a baby cross-country!
I better get a shower in while Connor's still sleeping :)
