Happy February ’09!

The month of January flew by, and it’s now February. The Super Bowl is over. I’m not a football person, just can stand to watch some of it, and I’ll root for a team in the Super Bowl if someone is worthy of it, as this year the Cardinals were, and boy was it a battle. I feel bad for them. It was a good game, and I do “get into” such a game, and even when I was younger at home we’d watch the Super Bowl but not other games before in the football season. Hubby is a sports fan and thus since getting married I’ve had to “endure” more sports than I like, and thus have had to understand more about football than I’d prefer. 🙂

So now Football is over in the US until later this year. 🙂

Baseball season is coming up fast. That’s the one sport I follow with my own desire to do so. I love baseball. That’s the sport my Daddy liked too. So I grew up watching it on TV some, and hearing about it a lot.

I also do like watching golf. It’s interesting and one can take a nap while watching 😉

Long ago in March, 1996, we got tickets for the Doral Ryder Open, in S. FL. I was 8 month pregnant with my first baby, and we loved it. We were there for the second day and the last day. It was a lot of walking, the temporary bathrooms were nightmaric for me (massively pregant and it was so hot in that plastic stall …) other than that it was a wonderful experience. We followed a few different people the first day we were there, and then exclusively The Shark the final day, and he won the tournament. 🙂

Apparently the the North will have 6 more weeks of winter, according to the groundhog reading, as heard on Mike & Mike on ESPN2 (TV) [it’s usually on, at least when hubby is in town, in the morning, and sometimes during baseball season even when he’s not here.] I’ve not looked further into it. At any rate, we live in the south, so “spring” is right around the corner. 🙂 February is usual for Spring/Winter back and forth, with March being more Spring than anything and that’s it, full force into Spring/SUMMER. I like spring, but hate it. Allergies are not so good in winter the last few years, but spring is way worse, and then summer is so very hot and muggy and intolerable. I used to love summer, in Pennsylvania. In FL from 13 years of age on, I lost my ability to experience it in reality, but kept it in my internal self, with a deep imagination brain it’s no problem, just physically I can’t stand the actual summers down south. GA isn’t as bad as S. FL, but it’s just as bad in most ways.

This is a shorter month than any other, not that it really makes much difference to life, just somewhat, depending on how things are attached to dates, like pay days, and other things. So it seems quicker, and it is, but only a couple of days faster. It’s funny how such an imposed structure makes a difference to how we live. Just my silly objective perspective of looking at the world from outside of it for a short bit. We have so many structures imposed on us. It’s almost stifling to think about, so I must stop writing this so I’ll get away from those thoughts and breathe again, lest I go too deeply and don’t breathe at all.

So then, Happy February, once again. That’s Feb-ru-air-ee NOT Feb-you-air-y.
