Football is back! As exciting as that is…it really isn’t. I love me some football, as much as the next guy (yes I meant guy because not many women are as into it as I am), but there is a limit to my love. Let me give you a little background on why my football love is limited.
My husband is a teacher, but more importantly he is a high school football coach. He has been a head coach for about 4 years now, so consequently enough, I have anywhere from 30-50 surrogate sons that forcibly adopt me each season. Somehow they have deemed me team mom, which is a position supposed to be held by a parent…not the coaches wife (insert eye roll here). I really wish there was more parent participation, but i guess that would be too much to ask.
Anyways…back to the topic at hand. In our house…football is EVERY DAY! I’m serious…EVERY DAY! Here’s the break down of it all.
- Monday thru Thursday is football practice at the high school.
- Friday is the high school football game, and I have to run the snack bar, so neither of us gets home until around 11pm.
- Saturday is film (for the high school), and then my husband comes home and watches college football.
- Sunday is our “rest day,” but of course its NFL Sunday…so we are going to watch redzone all day.
This cycle repeats until football season is over.
As a wife…I support my husband to the utmost. However, there is only so much I can take before I am ready to throw away all the remotes in the house, and hide all the power cords. I just want ONE weekend during football season, where I can turn off my football wifeness. I mean is that too much to ask for? I honestly don’t think so…but just like eating without getting fat…its an amazing beautiful idea that will never f*cking happen. The things we do for our husbands….~le sigh~
Is there anything your spouse does allllll the time that you are more than willing to let go? Let me know!
