I'm watching the Superbowl as I write this. I'm not really for either team. I love football. I love college football. I love high school football. NFL has never really been my thing. I do love the Colts. Once they were out, so was I. And even after living here for 28 years, I still haven't become a Dolphins fan. So here I sit cheering for both when they do something right and cursing them when they do something wrong. It's a win-win situation.
And then there are the commercials. We just saw a commercial for a local sports bar which is like our Cheers. D2 used to work there and like the song says, "Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name." Anyway, I'm thinking that we are paying way too much for our burgers and beer if they can afford a Superbowl commercial.
The second half has just started. Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen performed during halftime. I've always liked his music. I can't say I am a huge fan because I don't even own a single piece of music that he released. But still, I do really like him. I never realized how much until tonight. As I sat here, I was mesmerized. The music took me back. Way back. It reached deep into my soul and as I sat here and listened I felt like the young SMB again, newly married, listening in our small apartment while we ate dinner or entertained friends. Isn't it funny how music can do that to you. Good music can.
It was a great weekend. D2 came home from school. She has been feeling a little under the weather and I wasn't happy about her driving the entire six hour trip by herself without a break. Fortunately for her, Daddy lives in between. She stopped there for refreshments and a little break from driving. Daddy's two older brothers and their wives were visiting from out of state. She was happy to see them and they her. The six of them were playing Mexican Train Dominos and if you know my family at all, you know we LOVE games. This was a new one to D2 but after watching a few rounds she was happy to sit in for someone who took a break. Soon she was back on the road home but now she was a woman on a mission.
The next day, we had to go to the store to purchase the Domino game so we could play. Several calls were made to Daisy to make sure we were selecting the correct game. Then later in the evening while playing, more calls were placed to question rules. It's a fun game for ages 8 and up. Even if I didn't win. *pout*
By Saturday, D2 was feeling better and was in the mood to bake. She is the baker in the family. She has a plan for an upcoming occasion at school and wanted to try out a new recipe. She made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. They were so moist and light. Absolutely yummy. And not on my diet. *sigh*
Before we knew it, the time had flown and we had to pack her up to return to school. *pout again*
