IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN…

Fantasy Football Season.  American football that is.  Yup I’m a fantasy football freak!  My sister and I play together as a team, her name is Donna so we call ourselves the Double D’s.  There are 10 teams in our league and the other 9 teams are men, so it’s really fun to beat them!

We’ve been playing together for 9 years and over that time period we have won 5 trophies.  One for first place, two for second and two for third.  Last year we ended the season in 10th place…I know, I know.

I used to keep myself well-informed on all the players.  I would watch the football draft in April.  I would know who was expected to do well, who was not, if someone was a diva or truly a great player.  I’d know stats, I’d know so much…then menopause hit and it seems my interest has waned.  ff1

I still love the excitement of drafting the players and setting my lineup each week.  The thrill of watching all the fantasy shows and the drama of making those last second tweaks minutes before game time, which most times I regret afterwards!!!

Sunday afternoons are spent nail-biting, screaming, jumping up and down for joy, making promises to you know who if only He allows so and so to score, moping, and questioning why I put myself through this each week!  Oh yes, Sundays are quite emotional!!

So once again, our draft is Monday night and I am crash coursing myself about the players.  Researching who the top picks are, who’s not so hot anymore, who are the expected sleepers, etc.  I do have a few must picks on my list but after that, not so much.

If any of you have advice as to who will be the best wide receivers, running backs, defenders, tight ends, quarterbacks, I’m all ears!  Who should I draft?  ff2

Thanks,
Deb

~ I’ve Won Today! ~

You know when you have that conversation in your mind and you have it over and over and over again?  Well today, while I was showering, (and why does everything occur in the shower by the way?) I was thinking about work and letting it consume me, as I have done every day for over a year now and I’m tired of it.  So I decided that I was NOT going to let work interfere with my weekend…this is my time and I am not going to give work one more second of my mind.  After I decided this, my mind was flooded with the poem below, which actually came into my head in song form.  So there is a tune that goes with it, but I’ll let you make up your own if you so choose!  🙂

I pay no heed to you
This is what I choose to do
And you have no control of me
This morning I have set you free

Now you must go along your way
For you see, I’ve won today!
So would you be so very kind
As to please get off my mind

When ever will you understand
That you’re no longer in the plan?
I cut the cord and said goodbye
Be on your way, don’t even try

I’ve chosen to be sad no more
Let me show you to the door
You’ll no longer beat me down
I have tired of this frown

mind3

You start each day inside my head
But did you hear what I just said?
The conversation starts again
As you are trying to get in

But thrice I cut you from my life
My words are sharper than a knife
And all the time I wear this smile
Knowing you’ll be gone awhile

Oh you’ll be back again I know
But it’s getting easy to let go
My will grows stronger every minute
Especially without you in it

This battle it has gone my way
For you see, I’ve won today!
