Have you heard? Super Bowl is this Sunday!

While my children are happily making plans on where they will be watching this grand event, and what they will be eating and drinking, I hear that my husband is also participating in their enthusiastic discussions and he too wants to have a super bowl party.

My first reaction of course is to say, NO WAY, how many parties a year do I have to host? Besides, I have absolutely no interest in football, none what’s so ever. But then I remember that my darling husband does things with me that he has no desire to do, and rarely complains.

So I turn to him with a smile and tell him that it is a marvelous idea. A few seconds later I leave the room to re-group. I splash some water on my face and try to reason with myself that after all, it’s the best thing to do, considering our friends, our kids, their friends....


As I add the numbers of guests, I find myself splashing more water on my face. I look at myself in the mirror, embrace the fact that I just committed to host this event, and find myself already planning and sorting in my head.

An hour later, the party is all planned out. I feel marvelous, my husband and kids are happy, and I just managed to call and gather some of my dear girlfriends to join our party as my support group.

As Borat would say: “Great success!”

    • yana, I can’t tell you how happy I am that both my husband and son will be working Sunday.
      I won’t have to have anyone over, I can either go walk our daughter and see Dylan or sit here in my office and write.
      somehow, this is so appealing.
