Anti -Super Bowl Party

I feel like I've been run over by a big truck this weekend. I woke up Saturday morning and Jennifer was just arriving. Roy and Nick had a job to do together Saturday morning, and they arrived home 30 minutes later. Nick and Jennifer spent all day Saturday here and I cooked a big lasagne dinner. They had planned to go to church Sunday morning out here in Olathe, so they just spent the night rather than drive 50 + minutes to Liberty just to drive back 8 hours later.
Sunday afternoon, Jasmin and the grand kids showed up to hang out with us since Jason went to his folk's house to watch the Super bowl with his brothers and his dad.

If it wasn't for Roy glued to the tube on the living room couch, we would have had a big Anti Super Bowl Party. I think next year I will. I'll gather up all the football widows, kids, and all the people I know who just don't give a rip about the super bowl, and have a big party. We'll have tons of food and watch movies, and Roy will just have to go hang out with Jason next year. As it turned out, I ended up cooking another big meal of Chicken enchiladas, salad, and cinnamon rolls for every one and we had a pretty good time anyway. Roy didn't seem to mind us much, and it was nice to have all my kids and grand kids at home. It's been busy around here, and right now I'm feeling exhausted, but it's been a really good weekend.

It's looking like I'll have Heather home with me tomorrow, she's having a hard time shaking her cold, and she just feels rotten - poor baby. Several of Jake's friends were MIA last week because they were struggling with the same thing - I'm guessing that's where she got it. I can't afford to catch it, I have too much stuff to do, and I'll end up making every one's life miserable if I get sick. Soooo, I had better get myself off to bed and make sure that I stay rested. Good night.

Love,
Susan

Susan - I stayed awway from home Sunday so I would not feel the urge to fuss at my husband about sitting around... but at least it marks year 2 of no drinking... that makes it a bit more bearable for me.

I shall never understand why people pay to watch grown men play a sport. Nor shall I ever understand why companies pay millions of dollars to advertise during a program that the majority of viewers are intoxicated while the view it.

Needless to say, we didn't watch it either!
