A super Sunday

What a great game! (The Super Bowl was last night, in case you’re not a sports nut.) I didn’t care who won, and had darned good reasons to root for both teams, so the outcome didn’t matter to me.

Reasons to root for the Cardinals:
  • Larry Fitzgerald, the hottest wide receiver in football pants
  • Kurt Warner, the oldest QB in football pants
  • Cuba Gooding Jr., who played for the Cardinals in Jerry Maguire
  • Not only have they never won a SB, they’ve never played in one
Reasons to root for the Steelers:
See? I couldn’t lose! Heh.

Best commercial? IMNSHO, it was this (I hope this works!):



The weather gods gave us a hint of spring yesterday. One of my weather widgets reported the mid-afternoon temperature at 65, the other at 57. Either way, it was a good day to back away from the treadmill and head outdoors. My husband and I logged a six-plus-mile walk before we settled down for our Super Bowl party for two.

It’s a good thing our “new” bathroom is so pretty, because after installing quarter-inch porcelain tile, none of the doors fit. Adjustments will need to be made; I’m not living with an open-air bathroom floorplan for too much longer. I bought slate-blue plastic bins to corral the stuff I used to store on shelves in the closet; my husband said that closet is so neat it doesn’t even need a door.

Um, I don’t think so. The difference between men and women might ultimately be how each of us defines “neat.”

I know this will be completely foreign to you, but I have so little interest in football it doesn't even register on a scale!

However, I saw the last 49 seconds of the game - very exciting. And a brief glimpse of this Troy Polamulu guy, who I had never heard of in my life, but that 0.5 second shot was enough for me to google him immediately.

I loved the movie "Jerry Maguire" - mainly because of Cuba Gooding, Jr. He so deserved that Oscar.

Great walk you and the Mr. had and I hope you get a little more spring like weather.

I totally agree on the favorite ad. Thanks for posting it. It was nice to view it again.

I grew up in central PA and have been a Steelers fan since ... well let's just say Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swan and Franco Harris were playing. So it was fun to watch them win again and a very exciting game. The Steelers always give good Super Bowl! ;-)

YES!

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.

Report

Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!


And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:


I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
