I guess we're officially in November (cracks me up that I just now realized this, on the eighteenth!!) because I'm sick and busy and feel like I can't catch up. Don't take this as complaining, because I am starting to feel better, and busy is good, because it means productivity, and I am truly blessed for having a job that I love, even when I'm running around like a chicken with a sinus infection.

I just finished reading Tony Dungy's book, and it was fascinating! He's an incredible, good man, and it's great he was able to have this book published. It also gives you some insight into the NFL - very different from college athletics. I think it's understandable why players making that transition often have a hard time.

Got the Twilight movie coming out on Friday, so I'm looking forward to seeing it with my sister and Casey. It'll be us and 300 teeny-boppers, but I'm sure it will be a fun time. Like most girls who read these books, I found myself completely obsessed. I read about 2,000 pages in about 10 days. Yikes!

I'm also looking forward to Thanksgiving, because I am so thankful for everything and everyone in my life. We're having a "pre-Thanksgiving" next Monday in Spokane, since I'll be on a work trip over the real holiday. Very nice of my family to move their holiday for me. They're having other big meals on the real day, of course, but I will be here. :) Sweeeet. Yes, that building with the rainbow in it is our hotel. Ha!

The weather is really up-and-down right now, with 60 degrees and sun one day, and 40 degrees and rain/wind the next. But I guess that's Fall on the Palouse!

More advice you didn't ask for - the ladies' edition!

* Wear the high heels.
* Men like it when you ask them to open jars.
* Lipstick is almost always a good idea.
* Never let a man watch you put on a pair of panty hose.
* Learn to type. You'll struggle through life if you hunt and peck. Besides, you can always be an administrative assistant if you lose your job.

Now here's where you can advise me - how do you keep from suffering Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) when it's 40 degrees and rainy (and windy and dark) and your job requires that you stand outside for six hours and watch a terrible football team every Saturday? :(
