I was just reading MSNBC's preseason top 25 poll. The Florida Gators are number 5, which is fine by me. Preseason really means nothing. USC fans know that. Oh that was a low blow, so sorry. Anyway, I got chills. I'm so excited for football season. I wish all of you could truly understood the pure joy I get on Saturday's during the fall.

"The Gators are building the most formidable talent war-chest this side of USC, so watch out. If Florida gets some breaks and finds its way back into the big game again, we might be looking at the start of a Southern dynasty." - A very smart man who wrote for MSNBC, Joey Johnston

More than anything I can't wait to be in Gainesville on November 24th. Only 14 weeks to go!
Kody starts school on Monday. It's been fun having him around so much this summer. I'm also really excited he is starting again because that means in less than one year he will be on rotations and even closer to graduation! In less than three years he will be a real doctor. Amazing.

In other news, I am going to San Diego at the end of September for the AOA convention. Basically it means I'm a big deal. OK, not really, but I'm going to learn a lot about the American Osteopathic Association which will be helpful someday I'm sure.

The Deadliest Cramp

I had a horrible, frightening, near death experience Friday night. I had the most horrible cramp I can ever remember. I don't know how many people have woken up in the middle of the night due to a cramp, but if you have you know that it isn't fun. I usually get them in the middle of my left calve muscle. It's always in the same place. Friday, however, it was different. Normally I can rub and breathe it out. This night I couldn't. I woke up screaming. I almost fell out of bed and I was hunched of the bed pretty much in tears. Kody woke up and thought something terrible had happened (it was terrible...he just likes to make fun of me now). I couldn't do anything. No amount of rubbing or breathing would make this sucker go away. It was stubborn. Finally after a minute, but what seemed like an eternity, it calmed down. All day Saturday my calve hurt. It felt like someone had repeatedly kicked me in the same spot. I have determined the cause of this deadly cramp was dehydration. Being the intelligent person that I am, I worked out in the garage on Friday afternoon in about 95 degree heat. My water consumption was also pretty low that day. I have been carrying around a water bottle with me ever since. I learned my lesson.

Last night we bought The 300 and watched about half of it before bed. I love the movie and have seen it before. Last night I kept having dreams about people getting decapitated. It freaked me out. Just thought everyone would like to know.

I'm going to the PGA tomorrow for work. Maybe I'll meet Tiger. That would be fantastic.
