Well, we are not nearly as snowed in today as we were last week, which is good because last week I was starting to get some serious cabin fever. Being locked in the house with two squabbling children for four days straight was enough to send me running to my mammogram on Tuesday morning. I was willing to do anything, ANYTHING, to get out of the house for a bit.
But now we’re back to Sunday and all is peaceful and quiet. I’ve been up working since 5AM and am not too tired. This week’s podcast is already out the door, and this morning’s workout is done and over with. I’ve got a full day ahead of cooking, cleaning, and crafting. Oh, and Super Bowl. Must not forget Super Bowl.
To be honest, I am not a fan of football. I sat through more games than I care to remember, thanks to my years spent in school marching bands and the VTCC. In fact, my freshman year at Virginia Tech was the year after the football team had been caught in some sort of recruiting scandal, so the school was banned from recruiting for 4 years, starting that year. Let me tell you, if there is one thing that is worse than watching football, it’s watching football being played by a team that has no chance in hell of winning due to a lack of star quality players. And the only thing worse than that is having to sit out in the frickin’ snow, in a painfully uncomfortable uniform and being ordered to cheer your team to victory, because if the Hokies lose this game, your weekend pass will be revoked. And it always was revoked, thanks to that recruiting ban and the resulting lack of star quality players.
So I have no great love for football, but I do love cozy afternoons at home with the family and I do love to eat, and the Super Bowl actually provides me with an excuse for both. I plan to get all my chores and cooking done early today so I can spend the afternoon in the living room with the Hubster and kids, ignoring the game while I crochet and sew with Princess and Pixie. Hubster picked up all sorts of hors d’oeuvres and I’ll be baking a fruit pie for dessert. I may even knock out some work while we watch the game. I’ve got some articles to get done, and that won’t take long. Yes folks, I think a lazy yet productive Sunday will be enjoyed in la Casa de Madden today.
Whoever you’re rooting for, I hope you enjoy the game. And if, like me, you can’t stand the sport, you can always watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet instead of the big game. I hear this year they have bunny cheerleaders!
