I think the earth just tilted on its axis, folks. Either that or there is a gas leak in my husband's office and he's talking out of his head.
Eight years ago, my husband made a not-so-wise decision in my opinion. He passed up an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii with me for a football game. As a rabid University of Alabama football fan, he decided that "seeing Tennessee play Alabama in our home stadium for the first time in history" was more important than accompanying me on this tour designed for meeting planners and their guests.
Lemme tell ya, I have never let that one go. There are plenty of things I have let go through the years but that isn't one of them. (By the way, I took my Dad and we had a grand time)
So, fast forward to 2007. We have a new coach at Alabama. Our season is full of promise. There is an electricity in that stadium that we haven't had in a long time and this weekend is one of our biggest games to date... Alabama vs. Tennessee. Now, if you're not a sports fan, I'm sure I've lost you by now. But hold tight...I'm getting to the point. Promise.
As many of you know, we're trying our best to adopt and have been for the past year. We have recently discovered that we need a certain class in order to adopt through the state of Georgia. And guess when the class begins? Yep. This Saturday. All day.
So...my hubby called a few minutes ago and said he suggested we need to forego our trip to the game in lieu of attending this class. Since the next time we could get in would be February, he's offering to skip the game in order to attend (if they have room for us).
What? What did he just say?
I hope this isn't coming across as sarcastic...because I am genuinely surprised at his decision. Sure we enjoy going to the games but this is a chance to add to our family. This is for our son who spends time kicking around pine cones in the yard with his head hung low because he wants so desperately to have a brother or sister to play with.
There are just some decisions that are no-brainers in life.
This is one of them.
