Ramblings and Goals

Thanksgiving weekend is always filled with so much. When I finish I don't quite feel like I had a weekend. It is still great to see family and when we can friends. With my family it is loud... lots of loud and lots of food.. Chris' family is filled with SO MUCH football. I wasn't raised watching football... I get lost. Chris calls the play when the quarter back fakes the hand off to the ?running back?? a "Play action"... I say it is a trick play cause I always get confused as to where the ball is and spend the though time trying to find the ball. 

I do however like looking at the costumes (yes, I know they are called "uniforms" but let's be serious they are costumes). This year I can however say, for a first time mind you, that I am glad to have seen at least part of a football game: among the seemingly hundreds of games that were on we watched Alabama loose to Auburn because they tried to finished the game off with a "game winning" field goal but it fell short and some guy (#11) on Auburn's team ran it from one end zone to the other... I could have missed the rest of the game but that was super fun to see! So there Chris! I have one football related thing I am glad to have seen... ONE!

Don't get me wrong... I don't take issue with others love of Football... just I want to be a part of it. I do love Hockey though... does that make up for it?

On a completely different note: I'm so excited that by all accounts I can be openly excited about Christmas and no one can judge my love! Here I come Christmas lights and wandering the Christmas section of every store that Chris will let me drag him too... Yes, that is on my goals list!
