7 Reasons Why I WON'T Be Watching The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is Sunday.

And I really don't care.

The commercials are amusing, yes, but I'll catch a recap on YouTube.

1. Well, for starters, football bores me to tears. When it's on, I'm like this:

One time we got invited to a Super Bowl party. I assumed there would mostly be talking. And eating. But no, people actually wanted to WATCH the game.

2. The sudden shouting that people do frighten me. For instance, at the Super Bowl party I went to, men would suddenly go, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" or, "MOVE YOUR ASS!" I nearly fell off my chair each time.

3. I always want to mock the people who go, "We need to pick up the pace," or, "We need to do a better formation," as if they are personally part of the football team. We? What's this we business? Are you out there in tight pants? No?

4. Did I mention that football bores me to tears?

5. It bothers me that these players are paid millions, yet our troops who defend their country are paid horribly. And yes, I know I'm a hypocrite, because I enjoy watching movies and TV and those people are also paid millions. That also bugs me. I cannot tell you how upsetting it is to know someone like SNOOKI makes more money than our soldiers.

6. Football has interrupted my shows too many times. I HATE when a game runs long and runs into my program. If I'm recording a show, I miss part of it due to a stupid game. All games belong on ESPN.

7. Both teams that are in the Super Bowl bug me. On one side you have a guy who likes to shout, (Richard Sherman? I think?), plus that dude who was like, "I'm just here so I don't get fined," over and over like a moron, and on the other, you have a pompous ass:

It really looked like he took the press conference seriously. Nice hat.

Anyway, I was invited to a Super Bowl party and I declined. Just in case people actually planned on WATCHING the game.

Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Barfing

I hate throwing up.

I'll do anything I can to avoid it.

So when my stomach started majorly hurting the other night, I wouldn't allow it to happen. Tom always tells me, "Just puke! You'll feel better!" Maybe. But I cannot stand the feeling. I usually start crying hysterically as soon as it happens.

It was horrible though. I kept waking up all throughout the night. My stomach would lurch. I'd take deep breaths, willing the pain away. I could only sleep on my back. If I tried to move to my side, I would immediately feel awful. I was hoping I'd feel better when I woke up in the morning.


I had to stumble in and get Tommy up. I basically sat on the couch, dead to the world. Tommy was like, "Don't get me sick."

The entire morning was a blur. I remember getting Natalie cereal. I brushed her hair, but not very well, so she went to school looking frightening. I walked her to school hoping the fresh air would make me feel better. Also, I wanted steps on my Fitbit so my Mom didn't think I was dead when she checked it.

The fresh air didn't help. I wanted to crawl the last few steps home.

I never had a fever. It was just a stomachache. I wasn't able to eat, which made me sad, because I love to eat.

When Tommy came back from school he asked if I had Ebola. I said no, but thank you for the concern. He would not let me touch him. "I can't have your germs. Sorry," he'd say.

Dinner was nuggets nuked in the microwave because I wasn't able to stand upright long enough to prepare something better.

It was not a fun day.

But you'll be pleased to know that I'm doing much better now. I can eat again. Now I just hope that the kids don't get sick.

Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post. Grab the button if you'd like!

--To not care that a football was deflated in a game. I hate football. Is it over yet? I'm sick of it interrupting my shows.

--To think American Sniper deserves all the Oscars it is nominated for. I know some people are like, "Chris Kyle lied in his book," but you know, the man was still a hero. Stop bashing him. He left behind a wife and two children. They don't need to hear the nonsense.

--To be sad that Parenthood is ending on Thursday. I love that show! I even wrote a blog post on why I love it here.

--To survive meltdowns like the one I survived last week by consuming lots of chocolate.

--To not be watching American Idol. I just plain don't care.

--To think that the documentary While Time Stands Still is something all military families should watch.

--To be SO CLOSE to paying off my car. Only $800 left. And then we'll be completely debt free!

--To have gone on a date with Tommy after I dropped Natalie at the Give Parents A Break program that the base does for military families once a month. I'm glad I don't embarrass him. He still finds me amusing.
