Were you ready for some football?? We were so we went and had ourselves a good time. 
I took about 120 photos and I'd say 84 of them are shots like this one: 

Listen now, my 'Boys were giving the game to ya Vikings.
Took ya'll long enough to take it. 
I don't even know what to say about the 'Boys.

Tasting new flavors of Mt. Dew. Out of 8 of them?
Maybe 2 tasted halfway decent. The rest?
Blech. oh and oh yeah, Gross I think I just threw up a little in my mouth!
Yep, good times a the Metrodome!

I don't know who Paula is but I hope she said yes.

We got these FavVision things free for being season ticket holders. 
Saw some guy renting/selling them. Should see how much they go for.
We were able to watch other games, see replays, watch the camera angles 
they show on the tv, set up fantasy football.
I liked it but I don't know that we'll keep it after the 2011/2012 season.
The subscription fees are waived the first two years. 
I shudder at the thought of how much that could be. 
My son thought it was FloTV. You have no idea how badly he wants that.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying.

Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):

I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
