Truth be told, aside from doing a little housecleaning and putting together a fun, casual dinner with a few friends, I didn’t do anything terribly productive. It was a long stressful week at the corporate job and honestly, I felt spent. So I ate a few too many
cupcakes and taco chips and watched the Packers come from behind and beat the Jets.
Speaking of the NFL, there was a ton of commentary and social media around what is going on off the football field. So much has already been said, but I will say I found many of the comments and opinions given by men and women, very disturbing. Especially the talk around who "deserved it."
My opinion on who deserved what is pretty simple stupid. We deserve to not be abused by someone we love. We deserve to not abuse ourselves, by constantly telling ourselves we are not where
we should be or who we should be. We deserve to be happy. All of us.
Tonight, at half time of the night game, I will be taking a moment to have a glass of wine on my back deck. It has been a hot weekend and even though I didn’t accomplish much, I had some laughs and some fun. Monday I will go back to trying to save the world before bedtime. Tonight, I will spend a moment just enjoying my backyard. Because, yes, I deserve it.
