Cons of fall, football and set your clocks back!

Halloween is tomorrow.

I guess I'll finally have to admit that its fall.

I love fall, don't get me wrong, but that means ... bad things are coming.

Things that build up and must be shoveled away. 

Things that cover the cars and sidewalks and must constantly be cleared.

Things that make you go ... brrrrrrr.

Not looking forward to that.



So, my son's team (barely) made it into the playoffs this season, which means, I thought I was done with football but I'm not.

Practice is still going three days a week and they have their first playoff game this Saturday. If they lose they're done, if they win they play another game.

I honestly don't know which to root for. :)


This weekend we lose an hour of our day. Or, gain one. I can never remember which one does which.

It's hard to believe that we can make computers the size of a phone (smaller actually) and yet we can't seem to get over this antiquated schedule.

Rob Schneider always cracked me up about setting the clocks back. It's right after the part about how the word 'Dude' has more than one meaning.


Don't forget The Insecure Writer's Support Group post will be November 6, 2013!


The Resurrection Blogfest II will be November 7, 2013!


  1. I like snow though!
    Root for your son's team to win.

  2. Greetings human, Heather,

    We set our clocks back last Sunday. Which means, for one amazing week, you are one hour closer to me, yes me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!

    I hope your son's football team, as in that kind of football and not football, football, as in soccer, does well in the playoffs.

    You gain an hour. The "IWSG" aka "I Was Seeking Gary." My human is so flattered.

    Blogfest? Argggghhhhh!!!!

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

  3. I live a unique little corner of the world that doesn't have to change their clocks - ever. Love that. One more thing I don't have to remember to do!

  4. LOL on the football! But I love the other side of winter more!

  5. I feel the same way as you do about snow and winter. I don't mind it for Christmas but that's it!

  6. I used to dread the fall, as that's when bad things always happened in my life, but I love it now.

  7. I like winter way more than summer, so knowing what's coming doesn't bother me. Your son's so cute! Yay for his winning team! Happy Halloween! :-0

  8. Alex - Bleh. Snow. I'm so over it. :)

    Penny - Thank you for your pawsitive wishes! I can use all I can get! Thanks for coming by today! It's good to be closer!

    Wendy - That would be great. It's time to ditch this old idea.

    Amy - I like the sound of that!

    mshatch - I've had Christmas w/o snow. It holds up. :)

    L. Diane - It's truly beautiful. Especially here in NY. I'm glad to hear good things are happening in your fall now. :)

    Lexa - Thank you! He knows he's cute too. Happy Halloween!


  9. I don't care for the cold weather that will be coming. I don't like snow. It's a four letter word I don't like to hear. : )

  10. I'm with you; this clock-changing jazz is bogus! And thanks for pimping my blogfest! <3
