Football season is here.........

Listen carefully and you can hear the death march signaling Football season is here. I say this because my life as a widow will start any day now. Ryan lives, eats, breathes, and whatever else there is, FOOTBALL.
Tivo is set for every single game, fantasy football drafts along with all the trash talking has insued, and my husband is gone. Crazy yelling at the tv, laptop attached to his lap, maker of little post it notes with crazy football player names for "trades" left everywhere around the house, would sell his kidneys and mine if he could see the Bears play this season, man has arrived replacing my husband. This weekend is the ever popular Fantasy Football draft. It's basically Mr. Rogers make believe land all over again only with adult men and minus the puppets. I am making a quick exit to Chicago this weekend to escape this party which is being held at our house. If you too are in my shoes this "season" I feel for you.
****Disclaimer: I LOVE my wonderful husband very much. ; )

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your husband! You're a golf widow in the spring and summer and a football widow in the fall and winter. It never ends!!!

I so hear you on this one, Melissa. I get a yucky feeling like no other in late August/early September when football starts because Cody is so football crazy. I swear I could stand in front of the TV naked and he wouldn't notice me if football is on! ;) He is going to TWO Bears games this season. Ugh. He's even on the season ticket waiting list. I don't know what I'll do when his number comes up! Thankfully he's still like #1,000!
