Ah yes, Priorities!

Ok, so I'm sure that most of you have heard by now about this woman who actually had herself induced early so that her husband could go to the Chicago Bears game last Sunday rather than be at the hospital with her while she delivered his son. Are you kidding me? What sort of idiot actually would be put out to miss a stupid football game because of the birth of his child? And what sort of idiot is she for supporting that sort of behaviour?
I realize my husband & I are not sports people and you never find a football or baseball game playing on our TV, so I will never understand someone's obsession over watching someone else play a sport! I mean, even the actual athletes take time off to be at the birth of their child, don't they?! And the woman is so proud of how much she loves her husband to give him "... this one opportunity that he might never have again in his life?" Sure...babies are born every day, but the Bears playing in the NFL Championships, that's the once in a lifetime opportunity!
Ah, the priorites are clearly in place here!

Let me simply state for the record...if my husband even harbored a thought of being anywhere but beside me at the hospital while I deliver his child that I've already carried around for 9 months, he'd learn a whole new meaning to "foot balls"!

Oh my goodness!! I am a HUGE football fan...but not that much. It's all about priorities, isn't it???

Have a great week.
