Does anyone else lose their husbands through the month of January? With the fall season comes football season. For the next three months I will carry on one-sided conversations with the back of Paul's head, and on a good day hear an occasional grunt from the family room.
I came home recently to find my husband hunkered down amidst a spider web of cords and cables. To get to him I had to pull a Tom Cruise-Mission Impossible move and scale our ceiling.
He had somehow found enough cord to hook up the game in our TV-less home. You would have thought he was six-years-old on Christmas morning and found a pony under the tree.
I opened up my fridge yesterday to discover a drum of salsa, the size of an oil barrel. A clear sign that football season has arrived.
So, in honor of all of us wives who become husbandless until Super Bowl, and for all of us women who actually LOVE salsa and a pigskin right along with our men, I've included an interview Dr. James Dobson did with Coach Tony Dungy today on the Focus on the Family radio show. I think you'll enjoy it.
Cmon' girls...football widows UNITE! Let me hear you shout!!!
Are you ready for some football?!?
