Peach State says: Are You Ready For Some Football?

20130112-094045.jpg

What a season this has been…and the fact that our two favorite teams play each other tomorrow is…well..a dream!. The Atlanta Falcons host the Seattle Seahawks! “Wish we had tickets but, that was not in the cards.” With two playoff games today and two tomorrow our house is in NFL Football Heaven. Are You Ready For Some Football?

There will be no silent cheering, as my hubby sleeps.
There will be no headphone in our iPads or iPhones listening to the game, as my hubby watches what he wants to watch.
There will be no need to ask “Siri” for score updates…
And the biggie….no texting between my son and I talking about the game.

This has been a season that will live forever as The Year Dad Watched Football! “I think my sons are placing bets for next season…Will dad be this into the NFL and other games next year?”

Well I have a lot to do before settling in for the proverbial cheering-raising-our-voices-coaching-from-the-livingroom-spitting-out-plays-and-yelling-about-the-choice of players on the field. NFL Heaven Pre-game hoopla begins at 3:30 today. I hope your team wins unless you are playing my team. “Oh sorry! Did I say that out loud?”

Have a great day!

Peach State says: My Hubby’s Annoyance With My Tastes!

20121210-075636.jpg
I am one of the people who watch every Christmas movie from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve. Unfortunately…my hubby is not a fan of these chick-flick-Christmas-romance-Santa-spirited-all-lived-happily-ever-after type of movies. From the beginning of our relationship, some 27 1/2 years ago, he has made it known…

My Hubby’s Annoyance With My Tastes!

The funny thing, as I sit here this morning watching a new Christmas movie I TiVoed, this has been a year of change in my hubby. His dislike for sports, namely college and NFL football, has pretty much done a 180…we would find him watching the beloved football team fight for a win with us and as the NFL season began and the Falcons won he changed. We now watch most NFL games and he has picked his favorites. My 19 year old son is blown away and told his daddy that this was definitely the way to live. He explained that having his dad yell, in true sport-fanatic-hoot-and-hollering style, at the players and coaches made his game-day-experience complete.

All of this to say…yesterday, after the game, he dozed off and I changed the channel. He woke to find himself watching the last half of a Christmas movie called “Hitched for The Holidays”. He enjoyed it…but as it ended I gave him the remote. I went to fix dinner and he relaxed in the role of his control in button pushing. He watched 2 shows and paid no attention to the 8:00 movie coming up next.

Help For The Holidays
Are you sitting down? He watched it…all the way through…he even asked me to pause the movie when he ran upstairs. “That was not as bad as I thought!” he said. I will not force him into chick-flick-mania BUT…if he happens to get caught up in the story I will not change the channel.

I am going to settle in and watch this movie…Do you like holiday movies? If so…what are your favorites? Have a great day!
