Sunday, Sunday

Nearly every Sunday during (American) football season, my son's friends fill my living room and watch the games together. Truth be told, I like it. I would like to have my living room to myself but seeing them enjoy each other is worth the bother.

Unlike other wives, I am not a football widow. I like the game and understand it. The Boy started playing when he was seven years old but my interest was piqued before that; long before that. I, gail of the great Atlantic northeast, am a Seattle Seahawks fan! Yup, the entire country stands between me and my team.

There is really no reason why I got into that other than Sundays in autumn are all about football. And church. Period. Also, I want to get some entries going.

Trying to figure what to write has been so difficult. Do you really want to hear about my tantrum last night when I couldn't take what was going on any longer? Or about how I am disappointed that The Girl isn't taking Isabella to the free special needs dance classes? Or that I am sleeping a lot, probably because of fibromyalgia and the stress of having to be up very early with Bells to get her ready for the school bus? Or that I need some time to myself and haven't been getting it? That I need a visit with my bff in the worst way?

Why would you want to hear about any of that?! I don't even want to hear about it. I am not liking myself very much right now but that will pass.

Let me leave you with this: Maybe you will forgive me when you can't get this out of your head!


  1. Hi Gail,

    We do want to hear, that is what we are here for, to support and pray for one another.

    Take care - God Bless - Nita

  2. Hi Gail, It is good to read your post. I may not have the answers,but I am a good listener. You do have alot on your plate girl. We may walk different paths but I can relate. We do need time for ourselves to do, or not to do what ever we want and need. It is better for everyone, including us if we do have some time to ourselves. I finally after 3plus weeks got out with my camera today, for a little while and it felt wonderful. I forgot everything that goes on in my life, and just enjoyed the moment. It was wonderful. I don't care if any of my photos turned out or not. It was just wonderful to get away and enjoy the quiet, peaceful nature around me. I was in my element!!! :)

    In saying that I do hope you are feeling better and if not, I hope and pray you feel better real soon. Take care Gail. You are a wonderful person and don't be too hard on yourself. It is better to get some things off your chest, rather than have a major meltdown.

    Hugs for you my friend.
    Dianne :)

  3. hey dear G...we all have moments when we dno't like ourselves...but as you said, it'll pass. Love ya. By the way, I used to love football too, when I was in America, and I loved NBA too! the only thing I never liked, could never like or understand was baseball. hehe.. (hugsgsssss)

  4. {{{hugs}}} to you dearest Gail, my heart connects with you and I feel your pain and your troubles. I am so glad for all you share! from football and church on Sunday to tantrums and disappointment, not to mention the pain. Let it all out, and I will be here to listen. I stayed up w-a-y too late last night and of course that meant that I slept in this morning, so I'll be running around for the rest of the day like a chook with my head cut off {but not before I visit my friends} :) After all, the other stuff will still be there... I guarantee it! Anyway, I guess I had better get a moving now. I hope you have a joyous week ahead, with sand in your toes and some salty kisses from God too. xoxo GOD BLESS YOU!

  5. Just stopping by to say hello, and I hope your week is going well. I am heading to get some shuteye, but wanted to let you know you were in my thoughts and prayers today.
    Hugs, Dianne :)

  6. Just sailing by for a visit to see how my friend is going? Wishing you a lovely day, keeping you close to my heart in love, care and prayers. GOD BLESS!
