Go Seahawks!

They're going to the Super Bowl! Woohoo! I'm not usually such a sports fan but the entire city of Seattle has gone crazy and I'm right there with them. This team franchise has been here for 30 years and over the course of those years they have sucked most of the time. They made it to the playoffs one other time 20 years ago and lost. This time they won the NFC champtionship and are going to the Super Bowl. Seattle has not had much luck with sports teams going to national championship games and winning them but the city is extremely loyal to their teams.

Bob and I went over to our neighbor's house (Jim and Mary) and we had a great time. Jim loves to cook (I wish it would rub off on Bob but no) and he fixed turkey chili. It was wonderful and we snacked and laughed and cheered for the Seahawks. Lots of fun.

We went to a wedding yesterday. My son Jason was one of the wedding party. He was a head taller (he's 6' 3") than everyone while they were standing at the altar so it was kind of comical to see. I'm such a mother... I kept wishing he would find a sweet girl and settle down, but he's too busy playing the field. He's a very good looking guy but he's very picky. (Mom, most of the girls out there are high maintenance or completely nuts.)

My dad flew back to Arizona to pick up his motorhome and drive it home (they live north of Seattle). He has to be back by the middle of February to have his blood work done and draw blood for his surgery which is scheduled for March 3. Bob really wanted to fly down and drive the MH back so Dad could schedule his surgery sooner but Dad absolutely refused. He's being terribly stubborn. I really feel like he is thinking that he is going to die soon so he's in no hurry to have the surgery. I talked to him tonight and he sounded even more cheerful than the last time I talked to him. He told me where his will, power of attorney, and living will papers are all kept. He also thanked Bob for his offer and said that if he starts feeling too tired to drive or has some bleeding, he will call us and we can go pick them up. ::sigh:: I have to let go and stop worrying. My brother wrote another email that pissed me off again that I also refuse to acknowledge. I'm keeping my mouth shut! Aren't you proud of me?

Oh, yeah, GOOD BOOK ALERT.... I finished reading Blood Moon Over Britain by Morag McKendrick Pippin this weekend and loved it! Highly unusual time setting in WWII Britain with a kickass heroine and an absolutely riveting suspense. Wonderful. I'm working on a review.

I know there are lots of Steelers fans but it's OUR turn. :) The press always seems to favor East coast teams over West coast teams so I'll take a stab at who they are favoring to win. Actually I'm just thrilled that the Seattle Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl for the first time in our history. If they actually win it, that will be icing on the cake.

Go Seahawks!

I love sports and one of the fun things is finding bloggers who live in the cities with winning teams. Sybil and the Spurs, Keishon and I forget which team. Now there's you and the Seahawks.
Glad to hear you liked BMOB so much. I have it TBR - not sure why I haven't started it yet as I loved Blood Moon over Bengal. Have you read that one yet?

Yes, I read BMOBengal and liked it but I like Britain even more. I really liked the gutsy heroine and nonstop action. Very well done. I highly recommend especially if you're looking for something different.

Wow, I haven't touched my blog in over 6 years and I'm still logged in!  Good thing because I have no idea what my password is.  In ...
