Now it’s comin

Compared to the lovely center of PA, this state has spoiled me. We were still having temps in the 60s up to this weekend. A torrential downpour isn’t commonplace, and I haven’t had to scrape ice off of my car…yet.

Well, the 10-day forecast has told me that those days are over.

For the first time since living here, I’m getting sick. Maybe it’s the sudden um, 10 degree, drop in outside temp? Maybe it’s the fact that my room is frigid, for some reason the heat skips it and moves on to the bathroom. (I even bought a space-heater thing, but it blows a fuse if we turn one more thing on. Eh, Not good.) Or maybe, it’s the fact that I’m no longer in goin-out-shape. Two nights in a row of actually leaving the apt and socializing, with a football game stuck in the middle, is a little much for this chick.

Gah, sad day.

But! I’m hoping that last weekend was just a prep for this weekend. Like a short run before the race. And I’m getting sick now so that I’ll be better by Thanksgiving. Right? Right. It’s just a little heads up to the body….’Suck it up. Next weekend we’re doin it again. K? Nice talk, see ya out there.’

On another note. Thanks to those of you who cheered for my Lions (didn’t you???), we’re back on track! I’m squirming in my seat right now just thinking about standing outside of Beaver Stadium on Saturday. Tailgate, roommates, food, and Nittany Lions. That’s good stuff.
