Writer's Workshop: Football Version

The official beginning anyway.  For those of you keeping track football never really ends around here.  We eat, drink, sleep football pretty much 24/7/365.  It is our life. However those not officially affiliated like we are get really excited this time of year.  I am excited but I am also a little sad.  You see my husband packed his BIG bag to move into the dorms for the next 2 weeks.  He will of course come home for brief periods of time to make sure we are still here.  
This is from the first game last year. (or one of the first games)

After reading Mama Kat's writing prompts for this week I asked myself: if I could do it over again would I still choose to spend my life with a husband with this crazy schedule.  The answer is a resounding YES! I know that by January I may be questioning my answer to that but I wouldn't want it any other way.  Here are some reasons why.

Things I have learned from football:
1.  Texting your husband is sometimes more romantic than seeing him.
2.  There is nothing like a fly over during the national anthem
3.  Stadium hotdogs although not good for your waistline are sometimes just what I need
4.  The hard work and long hours really pay off 

So if you could do it all over again would you?
Linking up with Mama Kat for her Writer's Workshop.
