Weekend Leftovers

When I was a kid my favorite night of the week was "leftover night." Usually, on the night before grocery shopping was scheduled, my mom would clean out the fridge of all the leftovers from the week prior and that was dinner. I guess that's why to this day I love leftovers. Lunch is my favorite meal of the day because it is usually leftovers from whatever we had for dinner the night before. So my blog posting today is going to be "leftovers" as I share a wild combination of random thoughts going through my head as we enter the weekend. The first several will be sports related, but after that the direction will change dramatically. Here we go and "Bon Appetite."

I don't understand why my Cleveland Browns would hire an Offensive Coordinator from a team that had a losing record this year and didn't make the playoffs to be their new head coach!

I would sure like to see Pittsburgh and New England both go down in flames on the gridiron this weekend. After all, when it comes to the NFL my motto is "Anyone But Pittsburgh (or Denver)!"

On the flip side I would like to see both Seattle and Green Bay advance this weekend. Do you realize that if they both win, the NFC Championship game will be played in Seattle - a team that ended the regular season with a losing record (7-9)?

I sure am excited to see that when it comes to college basketball my Ohio State Buckeyes are now ranked #1 and undefeated as they beat Michigan Wednesday while Duke fell to Florida State!

I will be conducting a church experiment this weekend. I will blog about it next week!

I sure would like to see it snow some more!

Joy is already back at college and Jonathan heads back this weekend. It is hard to believe that one year from this May I will be heading down to Liberty University for my daughter's college graduation (25 years after I graduated from the same campus).

Back to sports for a moment - It was nice to see the Philadelphia Flyers end the mid way point of the NHL season in first place. Hockey is the only professional sport in which I do not root for a team from Cleveland (because the NHL doesn't have a team from Cleveland).

Most of all, I've really been reflecting the last 2 days on how very thankful I am for good friends and for the faithfulness of God.

Personally, I dont really like the NFL but because I'm such a GODLY wife, I lovingly watch the BENGALS lose with my Husband, but since the BENGALS are out of the race I must also root for whoever is playing the steelers BECAUSE MY HUSBAND DOES...Subsequently, i'm now rooting for NEW ENGLAND because they have the cutest QB, which kinda diminishes that whole GODLY wife thing huh?
