august’s end

I can’t believe August is already over. Not to mention most of 2011! Where did it go?
I’ll tell you where it went….work. Lot’s of work.
But I’m happy to say that the work has payed off. My goal in having a third job this summer was so I could use the extra money to pay off my credit card. It needed to be done. So each week the majority of my paycheck when directly onto the card while the rest went into my savings account. Week by week the amount dropped. It seemed like it would never really diminish though. BUT, after receiving my last two paychecks from the regular seasonΒ  at the hotel, I will have payed off my credit card, ENTIRELY. Can we say holy sense of relief?! I can’t remember the last time this card didn’t have a balance on it. And to top it all off, this means that all my post season paychecks from the hotel can go directly into my savings account! There’s a light at the end of the I’m-24-and-live-with-my-parents tunnel! Glorious day!
Another bright point to August ending is fall and with fall comes…FOOTBALL. Where can I even begin on my love of the game?? Since I was a little girl there were only 2 things that Sunday was for; church and football (in that order of course). I would rush home to watch whichever game was on and if I was lucky enough it was a Dolphins game. Yes, you read correctly, the Miami Dolphins are my team. You can thank my father and Dan Marino for that. Now in my 20’s my love of football has only grown and I find myself participating in fantasy teams and all the fun that comes with them. I can smell the fall and hear the sounds of whistles blowing and pads colliding. It’s a beautiful thing.
So, as sad as I am to see August go, I’m doubly excited to welcome September. Maybe there will be some rest or even, don’t say it too loudly, a vacation. oooooooooh. I can only hope.
