I must confess, I have absolutely no desire to watch this game tonight. It's not that I even care who wins, obviously it would be cool if we won and I would never cheer for the other team, but that's just it, I'm not really ever gonna cheer, period.
Is it wrong that I think its going to be a waste of my time to watch this game? That I'd rather spend the evening watching a movie with my family or playing cards or baking or reading or even sleeping? Is it wrong that my kids are excited about it (they have no clue, I think its just because there was hoopla at school about it) and I put on a smile just so I don't completely ruin it for them?
I just don't enjoy sports, or to be specific, I don't enjoy watching sports. About the only sport I like to watch is stuff at the Olympics, like ice skating, gymnastics and the track & field stuff. All that other stuff, it's just boring, it feels like a waste of time. I can usually find ten million other things I'd rather be doing. And its not just me, that's my whole family, both E and the girls would rather be outside 'doing' than inside watching someone else 'do'. Our television is never turned on for Monday night football or March Madness or the World Series, and I mean never. The only thing its ever been turned on for was the Super Bowl, once.
I'm going to the football watching party tonight, mostly because I feel like I should. My friends will be there, so at least I can hang out with them, and there will be dinner, and the kids can play with their friends. But I can tell you the actual game won't be very entertaining, I mean its not even like there'll be good commercials like during the Super Bowl.
I could be getting a ton of scrapbooking done tonight.
