Yesterday was a nice break from all the drama we had last week. There were many moments Tom and I thought of Mom, but it was in a joyous way as she really loved football. The only thing that could have made the day better was for her beloved Green Bay Packers to win.
Lori and I headed out around 8:30 am for Denver. About 10 we made it to the house to stop for 45 minutes or so to clean a few more drawers. We left a bit before 11 and drove to Elways to meet our good friends Jeff and Tina for pre-game lunch. We had a nice brunch and soon were leaving for the game. It started out great with us taking a 7-0 lead on a long drive and then was halted for weather. After a 62 minute delay for lightening, it was back on. The day was filled with great play from both our offense and defense as we pretty much beat the hell out of the Dallas Cowboys who many pick to go to the Super Bowl. Finally around 6:15 with the game in hand, we headed home and arrived around 8:15 exhausted.
Today I need to finish up the obituary, head back down to Denver and get back to work. Lori, Jag and Ty also have lots to do this week. Our friends at lunch and even the guys who sit behind us at the game all expressed their condolences which of course brought back some feelings but for some reason, probably football, they were good feelings as like I said before, my Mom loved her football.
