Football Is Almost Over And I'm Sad About It

Just wanted to say hi to anyone who might have popped over here from Manic Mommy's blog. Thanks for the shout-out, Steph! And just for the record, I am determined to donate next year!

For anyone new here, on January 1st, I said I was going to start a Project 365. That has worked out so far, in as much as I have posted every day. However, I think the point of a Project 365 is to take a single picture every day and create a post around that picture. In that context, I have not been too successful. I decided to try this to get back into writing, because before Jan. 1st, my posts were few and far between. I won't delve too much into the reasons for that, but we're dealing with unemployment and money stuff around here, and I just wasn't feeling that funny. And I like to make people laugh. I try to, anyway.

I don't know how funny my last 23 posts have been, but if you look over there to the right on the sidebar, you'll see some of my favorite posts that actually were funny.

Today I spent a good deal of the day on my butt watching football. I am a football fanatic. I love the AFC and NFC championship games, and I love the Superbowl. This time of year is awesome and sad. Sad because football is almost over and I have to wait 6 months until training camp starts. Then we are inundated with college basketball, and then in April, baseball. YAWN.

These two? Not so much big football fans. This is what happens when the kids decide to play with your camera. The younger one was supposed to be doing her homework, and the older one? Is just an antagonist. Seriously.

Go Saints!

The older child is doing some sort of project for government class. The project is done with a partner. They are supposed to create their own country, complete with flag, constitution, topographical map, etc. That large rectangle is apparently going to be the map. I don't know, but it looks like a big mess to me. It's still there. I keep asking her when she's going to clean it up. She says after she finishes her speech that's due tomorrow. Who wants to bet me ten bucks that it will still look like that in the morning?

How 'bout I just keep the ten bucks and take you to lunch? Because if that's your table, you're not gonna be able to eat there for a week!

Gaaa! I hate messy Art group projects. I'm still finding tree moss around my house from the last one, over a month ago. I'm looking at your mess and feeling you. Good luck. I'd say you've made a bet you're not going to lose.

That project sounds probably a little too fun to me. I hope she cleans up her mess when she's done!
