End Run Around Grief

Dear John,
I did it. Or, it did it. Something did it. Maybe it did itself.
You know that I've been struggling with watching sports alone? This weekend I got over the football part of that. I am SO overdosed with football! There's been so much of it that I can't ever remember what all I've watched.
Yesterday was wonderful - college rivalry day. Ohio State and Michigan State, Tech and Georgia, Bama and Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee, South Carolina and Clemson - it was football heaven. I watched until mid-afternoon, then I listened to it while I sewed curtains. And today was the pros. The Colts just beat Tennessee in a great game.
I don't know what happened in me. I didn't even realize it had happened until today, when I thought about how overdosed I am. Then it dawned on me that I've spent the holiday weekend watching football and enjoying it. College and pro. I have no idea what happened, but I'm glad about it.
And Abby discovered the television today. She seems to like football, too, and clearly expressed a preference for the Colts. Hunter, on the other hand, has always preferred NCIS. Jen looked at the photo and said that it seemed to her to be the team physician's rear that had Abby's attention, and she may be right. Abby won't be old enough to neuter for a few more months.
That's all the news. I'm enjoying football again. I must be doing a little bit better, healing some. Please keep praying for me - I have three more sports to go.
Adore you,
