Damn Packers. I was so worried that their bye week would be detrimental. It turns out I was right. Now I’m left scrambling to find a new team to root for during the remainder of the football season. I still love football, but it just isn’t the same when your team is out of contention.
It is the middle of January, and we finally received our first real winter storm of the season. It’s unfortunate it decided to hit on a Friday night and bring nothing but a decent layer of ice rather than any snow. Better luck next time!
No more puppy teeth! This may seem trivial but seriously, to not have to deal with those needle-sharp teeth anymore is a blessing and deserving of a celebration.
Holly is being honored tomorrow evening by being one of two students in her class to demonstrate Skype to the local school board. She says she is nervous, but I think she’s excited too. All she can talk about is her presentation. We’ll be there for moral support, but I know she is going to be just fine. She adores her teacher and will do almost anything to make her proud. In situations like this, that is a good thing.

I don’t know about you but an ice storm screams chili. I need to go start a pot. Have a great Sunday, everyone! Happy reading!
That was us last year with a Steelers fan and a Packers fan in the house. Have fun next week! Are you going to have a party to celebrate both teams or avoid going out in public like we did last year?
LOL!. Madonna is the half-time show this year. Meh. Not impressed. I agree that Black Eyed Peas was awful.
We made white chicken chili. It was great! It was the perfect meal for the weather.
I remain unimpressed with the Super Bowl participants this year. Add the half time show, and I may just skip it.
We're still enjoying the football season at our house; my daughter is a huge Giants fan and I've liked the Patriots for years. If the Giants pull this one out, the Super Bowl could be tense at our house!
Well, you can tell I don't watch Football. I read 'Damn Packers' and I was thinking 'Did she move and I miss it?' lol Yep, go me… I do watch the Super Bowl, though. I used to watch the whole thing, but now I tune in just for the half-time show. I don't get as excited as I used to because they seem to get worse each year the last few… Like, um, what is that band… Totally blanking, but the singer is Fergie, I think? Anyway, that year was HORRIBLE. I don't even think it was them entirely, but a mixture of bad sound, etc.
My recent post Week in Review (3)
I agree with you on the chili: my wife made a pot of turkey corn chili Thursday night for some friends that came over. It was gone by Friday night.
I'm with you on the football: my Steelers are out…and I'm really not feeling any of these teams. Maybe the Giants, but that's because we live close to the New York State border and I used to follow them back in the days of Phil Simms. I'm not really a big Eli Manning fan, though, and none of the other players really "grab" me. All I do know is that I'm not pulling for the 49ers (meaning they'll probably get into the Super Bowl 🙁 ).
