I'm A Bad Mother...

because I have been spending too much time trying to get all the PTA membership sorted and not enough time making sure that Bryleigh doesn't run a-muck.

Looks like I've failed. She is already taking romantic bubble baths with her boyfriend.

Good Bye Patrick Swayze

You were one of my first crushes...

I loved you as the caring older brother in The Outsiders.

Was afraid for you in Red Dawn.

Loved your man in uniform look in The North & The South.

Wanted to take dancing lessons from you in Dirty Dancing.

And Pottery Lessons after watching Ghost.

Considered surfing because of Point Break.

And just adored looking at you in Road House.

I even enjoyed your performance in To Wong Fu Thanks For Every Thing Julie Newmar, but had a hard time looking at you as a woman...

I will continue to watch your movies every chance that I get.

(August 18, 1952 - September 14, 2009)

You will be missed...

My condolences to your lovely wife, Lisa Niemi.

Busy Life = Lack Of Posts

Sorry to be such a bad blogger, but the craziness of "back to school" is still taking over my life. So, I'll offer this photo as a peace offering...

Isn't she the cutest? Now you see why I have to nibble on her face every chance that I get...

Only 4 More Days

until College Football Season 2009 begins. Is anyone else as excited about this as I am? I mean besides Haute Mama (Tennessee), Laura (Alabama), & WPMomOf2 (LSU). Even though I'm a Gator, I'll still cheer for your teams because they're SEC...but look out when we meet on the gridiron.

In all of my giddy excitement, I learned some really interesting facts that many of you may not know about my incredible boys in Blue & Orange.

Did you know that...

(1) UF has allowed the fewest punt returns (56) and fewest return yards (231) in the nation since 2005. That's an average of only 4.1 yards per return.

(2) The Gators have blocked 26 kicks (16 punts, 7 field goals, and 3 extra points) since 2005, the most of any team in the Country.

(3) The Gators were the only team in the SEC to pass for more than 30 touchdowns and rush for more than 40 in 2008.

(4) Florida has scored 411 points off turnovers created by the defense since 2005.

(5) Florida returned a school-record 5 interceptions for touchdowns last year. They tied for the most in the nation with Boston College and Missouri.
