Working for the weekend!!

Is it Friday yet?? I am exhausted!! I came home from school today and took a nap!

Friday Night Lights!
Today I was asked to be the official Cheerleader sponsor. All by myself. At first I was flattered and excited. And then reality set in. I live 45 miles away from work. There are away games on Thursday nights. Sometimes there is a 2+ hour bus ride to and from these games. There is just no way that I would be able to survive. I was really disappointed and haven't officially declined the offer. I wish there was some way to work it out, but I don't think there is. I've stretched myself thin as it is. Plus, getting Sanford to the games on Friday nights would be impossible. AND, football season is kind of our thing. We enjoy being on the sidelines together taking pictures. I don't want to stop that. So...idk what is going to happen. I would love to help coordinate the cheerleaders but the travelling is a no-go.

Have any of you tried pomegranate Greek yogurt? I had some today...I liked it. But it had seeds in it!! Is that normal?? Do you eat the seeds?? I just spit mine out!!

I brought my running clothes to work. They are still in my cabinet - unused. I was just so exhausted this afternoon.


  1. Well one thing I have issues with is saying no and then I become a frantic mess! I think remembering that footballs season is a good time for you and sanford (i love that you named him that) is a key thing to remember!!

    I love the pom greek yogurt! I use Chobani and I have never noticed seeds. However when I eat poms I do eat the seeds but I don't like it! Matter of fact I probably wouldn't buy it if it has seeds in it. A texture thing in my weird food brain!

  2. One thing I've had a hard time learning is that you can't be everything for everybody. It's no good for you. I'm proud of you for realizing that saying "yes" would mean giving up something you enjoy for yourself. It's hard to say no, but would you really be able to give the position your all when it puts such a strain on you and keeps you from doing stuff you like? Good for you! :)

  3. I'm responding in bullets:
    1. I love coming to your blog and seeing your skinnyr :)
    2. I think being as involved as you are with HS football is so cool ... hope you are able to continue finding a balance ... good luck with your cheer decision (maybe you can be the asst sponsor?)
    3. I think I need a nickname for The Sweetie. I call him this IRL and not a fun blog name :)
    4. Have the Pom yog - have not tried it :)

  4. Jess- make sure you leave some time for yourself and your own health and Stanford. You are important too.

  5. I have a friend who is a high school cheerleader sponsor. She gets about $1500 because of it but when you factor in the hours it is about $.25 an hour. It is a lot of hard work.

  6. Pomegranate flavored anything sounds amazing to me. :)
