"When I choose to celebrate, I no longer have space for complaining."
I love March Madness. Watching college basketball gets me through the winter. I follow the ups and downs of lots of teams, so when March comes around, I am in 7th heaven. I read ESPN and CBS articles. Follow lots of people on Twitter who are in the know and I fill out brackets everywhere. The tournament is fun to watch, but this year, there is a lot to cheer for! All three Iowa teams made the tournament AND won their first round game---two of them on last second shots.
My birthday was Thursday, so that brought many, many little moments to celebrate.
- Facebook wishes that went on for days
- An early morning phone call from my granddaughter
- Being sung Happy Birthday by a high school class
- Dinner out
- Basketball started :)
My hubby really wanted to do something this weekend and kept making suggestions. When I suggested something for him to do that didn't include me, he looked at me and said, "You just want to watch basketball all weekend, don't you?"
Yes. Yes, I do. I've been working ten hour days and many weekends with speech. I need to nest this weekend. And it's how I want to celebrate my birthday.
So I am. It's why I love my husband--he gets me. He might not always like it, but he understands my need to nest periodically. So today I will putz around my house--repotting plants, rearranging things, cleaning upstairs, playing with Chloe
and watching basketball.
