It is once again Sunday...and the stakes are high! Packers play the Vikings and our hearts are pounding hard for a win! It is the ultimate satisfaction to live in the land of the Purple People and earn a victory against them...especially with Favre in their pockets now.
Many years ago, before we were married, I became the ultimate girlfriend because of a family connection. My dad went to college with a guy named Paul. And their friendship expanded when their "first ladies" became great friends. Kids became part of the picture...family weekends at hotels...New Years celebrations...weeks up north...Paul was a reader at our wedding...the evidence continues...they are special family friends. They became heroes when they offered Ed season tickets ( they get 6 and they were willing to sell two of them to him) and it has been happening for longer than I even know...like I said, before we were married. Ed sells them off to his good buddies and a few lucky Packer fans that we discover each year.
Thanks to Grandma Charlie and Great Grandma Penny, Ed and I got to escape the daily grind of being parents and pretend it was 8 years ago, before were were married. When we held hands, and enjoyed an adventure of our own for the day. I found peace knowing my boys were in complete heaven and I was with my best friend, and he was in heaven.
Oh, I forgot to mention that whether you are a woman who enjoys the game of football or the nachos at the stand around the corner...I am guessing we all can appreciate this!
