They cancelled school today. Supposedly they think the weather is going to get bad. I think all the men are too upset about the game to go to work. I look at it the same way I did last year, Thank you Sooners! You gave us what? 11 or 12 really great Saturdays again this year. These game days spent with the family are really the best and I'll miss them till we get to start again in the fall.
Watching my son and daughter-in-law is hilarious sometimes.
She's not into sports at all and she chooses yesterday to say to him, "Don't watch a football game tonight, you're obsessed with football."
Of course he tries to explain to her the significance of this game and she says she can't believe his dad (my husband) took off work to watch a football game. He's asking her if she saved this up all season just so she could suck some of the pleasure out this day when (ignoring him) she picks up her phone, dials and says "Hey, has Dad left for work yet?" Clear as day her stepmom replies, "No. He took off work for the game."

My son is very funny. One day she was filling out an application and she told me she was using me as a reference and asked, "I shouldn't put down mother-in-law for relationship should I?" Without lifting his head from his book my son said "Put Nemesis."

    Nemesis? Heh, heh, heh. "A chip off the old block" to coin a cliché ;-0))
