Missed it

I did skip writing on Friday.

I think that until I’m able to write in the morning like I prefer, I’ll probably be missing Friday evenings. I promise you, it’s not because I have something important to do.

I’m generally pretty much a homebody. I like to come home, get comfortable and just be. I don’t have a whole lots of drive to get up and go out just for the sake of being somewhere else.

I don’t mind going places with people, or going over to friends’ houses. I just don’t particularly care for any event with no agenda. ‘Going for drinks’ or ‘going to the bar’ or ‘going drinking’ does’t really hold much appeal for me. I’ll meet people for dinner at a bar. I don’t care in the slightest if we go to the bar to watch a sporting event.

The main thing is, I want there to be something more to me going someplace than just drinking. It bores me when that’s the only planned activity. I would much rather go to dinner, or listen to some live music, or watch a movie with friends. I digress.

I pretty much turn off for the evening when I get home Friday. I tend to put off writing because I treat Friday night like the weekend, and I don’t write on the weekend.

So, until I can be on my preferred schedule, Fridays are probably out.

(American) Football Season!

I’m excited.

Football season is upon us. My weekends will now be full of what has become the new favorite sort in America. This is probably my favorite sports time of year.

Most weekends will now be full to the brim with Football. Fridays are High School Football. The area in which I live is a BIG Football area. Lots of games to choose from, or I can just go to the closest one, which happens to be The Wife’s alma mater.

Saturdays are full of College Football. Games start around noon EST, and go pretty much the rest of the day. I rarely miss my team, THE Ohio State University Buckeyes. I will sometimes go nuts and watch lots of other Football too.

Sunday is usually bittersweet. Between my Cleveland Browns being… well the Browns, and my Fantasy Football team frequently disappointing; I’m excited for Football Sundays but I typically end up annoyed by the end of the day.

Who cares what happens? This is Football season! That means cookouts, campfires and Football parties. It means cool weather, crisp air, and outdoor sports. It’s all the best parts of Autumn combined with friends and Sports.

Definitely my favorite time of year.
