That would describe the state of our house today.
I am rejoicing over the Steeler's big victory over the Raven's last night.
My husband is mourning the loss of the Eagles to the Arizona Cardinals.
To make it worse I can't get the tune "Pittsburgh's going to the Super Bowl" out of my head. Thankfully my husband is a much more gracious loser than I am and has not told me to "shut it", but he did ask nicely if I could contain my excitement until Wednesday at least, at which time he will be able to handle it better.
I can deal with that.
While a PA Super Bowl would have been really fun, I am glad that I can feel free to watch the game locally. I told Matt I couldn't handle being the only Steeler's fan in the room with a bunch of Eagles fans. I was planning on crashing the Milinovich home in New Jersey which would be the closest Steeler friendly home available to me. While I won't be leaving, I'm not sure if I'm up for a big party. Three years ago when they were in it against the Seahawks we had a bunch of friends over and I just assumed since none of them really cared, they would naturally root for the Steelers because they were my FRIENDS. It didn't happen that way. I'm not kidding you, at one point I snuck upstairs to watch by myself because I was getting frustrated. Not super mature I know, but I also cried when Franco Harris was traded. Granted I was seven at the time so perhaps that's not a good comparison.
Other exciting news - we got about five inches of snow today! I'm still kind of in shock, because anytime there is ANY chance of snow or potential winter weather the news teams really go nuts talking about it ad nauseum, giving you all the possible routes the storm will take, where the rain/ice/snow line will be, and on and on. Nine times out of ten, nothing happens. It's gotten to be a joke. So today it started snowing around noon and just never stopped. I got on one of the local news websites and read the latest weather forecast and it talked about how there would be a few flurries this morning, but the fog would be the real problem throughout the day. Beneath it they had the various snow tallies for the area. I love when the weather catches us off guard and I especially love finally getting some snow. All day long the kids waited until we could try sled riding and when we finally tried it wasn't happening. The snow was too wet. But we had a lot of fun just playing and chasing each other and making snow angels.
Here are a few pictures of our time outside. Not many and they aren't good, but I realize I haven't posted any pictures yet this year....
