Amended New Year’s Resolutions

Dear Father Time,

Is it possible to go back to January 1 at midnight to re-do our New Year’s resolutions? While our desire to give up skydiving, saving too much money, and cooking dinner every night were excellent ideas (we’ve done surprisingly well with them, too), we have another thing we’d like  to give up — professional football. After watching the New England Patriots devastating playoff loss to the New York Jets (of all teams) last evening, we realized that two “special” mothers have no business taking on additional stress by watching football. We have enough stress  with getting prescriptions filled, remembering therapist appointments,and keeping ourselves from not running away, etc. Plus, being a football fan doesn’t exactly bring out the best in either one of us. Last evening for example, we swore more than Popeye and made death threats toward Gisele, who appears to be Tom Brady’s bad luck charm (he hasn’t won a Big Game since he met her). We’re too embarrassed to tell you what we told Tom he could do with his hair.

So what do you think, can we go back? We long for those carefree days when we could just parade around in our Snuggies.

The carefree days of the off-season.

    Could be worse…you could be a Vikings fan like me. 🙁
