Don't you hate it when your team stinks!

Friday, September 20, 2013

I was trying to watch my Philadelphia Eagles last night but it got too painful. They just looked awful. It's funny too when your team is doing so bad how your mind keeps going to what's in the pantry or fridge that you might eat. That for sure is stressful eating. I finally gave up and brushed my teeth and just went to bed. I love football and enjoy a good game but admit that I hate watching when my team looks so very bad. Hopefully my other team, the Seahawks will look a little better on Sunday. And of course the Eagles were playing a team where our old coach, Andy Reed was with his new team. He looked very happy to be beating his old team after being fired from the Eagles. Oh dear.

Looking forward to a busy appointment and then will meet FIL's doctor at his house she wants to update us on everything. I want to push to stop the 24 hr nursing as I believe my FIL now needs to do things for himself again. Thank you all for supporting me on this. It's just that I can tell he likes too much all the attention and he lets the nurses do things for him that I know he can do on his own. My DH agrees so that is a good thing. I don't think I am being too tough. I just love him and want him to have his independence and quality of life again.

I am off to walk the dogs their 4 miles.
Hope you all are doing terrific. Have a wonderful day. Make the right right and exercise!

    I am a Seahawks fan..but I watched the Eagles. I still think Coach Kelly will pull through.

    I just heard a study that showed that people who supported teams that lost, usually eat poorly and gain on the Monday after the NFL game. People whose teams won, eat well on the Monday after and do not gain.

    As a Chicago Cubs fan I can definitely relate to being bummed out by your team!


    I agree with you, it would be better for FIL to keep his independence! Good luck!

    A little tough love is the most loving thing that you can do for FIL now. I'm with you here, Sallie! Have a wonderful day!

    I am sure yur FIL doctor will agree he needs to become independent again. I am sure he would not enjoy all the attention if it was a total necessity and he could do nothing for himself. Enjoy your pampering and your dog walk

    Only watch games that your team wins. Never watch live. Have someone tells you if you should watch so and so game after it finished. This way you only keep the good hormones going.
    P.S. It's the same old Zen's koan that says, if a tree fell in the forest and nobody was there to watch, did it make a noise? Well, if your team lost and nobody was there to watch. Did they lose? Of course they did because there were always some people there to watch. But if you weren't there, there is much less pain. Something like that.

    Nothing worse than having to have someone do the simple things for you! Always better to do as much as you can without endangering your self.

    Hope you had a great walk!

    That's why I don't watch them play and just read the highlights. Hope the doctor will let you give FIL a little space.

    You are absolutely correct on wanting to get your FIL moving again. He will lose his independence and muscle tone if he does nothing.
    My sister's MIL is a strong willed stubborn women and refused to do physiotherapy after her hip replacement surgery and is now bed bound unable to do anything for herself. Sadly, she refuses any kind of care, and hasn't had a bath in two months! She has fallen twice in the last week and is stuck in the basement as she is unable to get up the steps. What is worse, is her poor husband is going into the city for surgery and will be gone for three days. She refuses to go into hospice!! Her weak willed son will not push for anything for her, he bows to her will (he is an only child and dotes on his mother) As everyone is working/and or going to school, there is no family to check on her during the day! Its an awful situation. With her husband's ongoing heart problems, there is no way they should be stuck on an acreage in the middle of nowhere :( But they refuse to move into a senior residence in the small town they are closest to (her not him of course) You hate to see something like that happening but are helpless when they refuse to help themselves..
    Sorry about your team, that would be painful to watch!! Hope your other one puts on a better performance!

    I'm looking forward to a good Seahawk game also, sorry about the Eagles.

    I'll cheer for the Seahawks. I agree your FIL should do everything he is able to for himself. The more he lets people do things for him, the more he will lose the ability to do for himself. Not good!!! Happy walk!!! emoticon Nancy
