A Feeling of Nostalgia…

Winter is a time of the playoff games.  I don’t mind football, and I will follow my team.  I do love the playoff games though.  I like the excitement and the noise.

Hubby will sit and watch all the playoff games.  I will sit with hubby, usually occupying myself with my laptop or a book.  Yes, that is how I watch the playoff games,  I half watch them.

Today, we are watching the Chargers game.  I have had a running discussion with my oldest about this team since she was old enough to pick a favorite team.  I will freely bad mouth them.  I can’t help myself.  It’s not that I  dislike them, I just like to give her a hard time about her favorite team.

For some reason, today, nostalgia has covered me like a blanket.  I have mentally been transported back to our place in San Diego.  I can feel what it was like to have our oldest in our living room, screaming at the television, and sometimes at her Dad.  I can smell the dinner in the oven and remember the snacks that would be carried out to the living room.

Those were fun times.  So, today, I sit in a quiet living room, watching the game and giving my daughter a hard time via Facebook.    Some things never change.

Have a good Sunday.  DAF

  1. This made me laugh! Families are so similar, despite their differences. I’m not much of a sports watcher, but I’m rooting for *your* team. Just because.

  2. Hate to say it, but they will lose, they always choke… and yet, they are my oldest’s favorite team… we are from PA, north of Pittsburgh originally, so we are Steeler fans…. Glad you enjoyed this post! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I watch football the same way you do…with my laptop open. Actually, I get most of my blogging done during Sunday football games :]

  4. any more my laptop is open all the time. if we watch a movie we will wonder who an actor is, and then I start to look them up, then I end up looking up trivia about the movie or t.v. show… it’s an awful habit of mine. We more or less listen to the t.v.. Glad I am not alone though. you feeling okay? how’s the little one?

  5. Ya, I have to watch myself with technology or I’ll be checking things on the internet all the time. We are total junkies for trivia about people and movies so I get that :]
    I feel really good! Thanks for asking. I’m in the 2nd trimester now and I already feel better than I did for the 1st. We get to find out what we’re having in just about a month…very excited about that! :]

Let me know what you think!
