I’m a bachelor again this weekend. I figured once the kids moved to Boise, my wife wouldn’t be travelling to Nevada quite so much. I figured wrong.

My daughter-in-law is taking the grandkids south to visit my son. He’s working, and won’t return to Boise for a week or two. My wife decided to go with them, and watch the big game with her brother.

That leaves me to my own devices. I have a beta reading project that I’m nearly finished with. This requires some writing to send off my notes. I got a bunch of invites to host and visit other bloggers. Some of them have already delivered some fantastic stuff. I still have to write my posts, and any intros that accompany their posts.

I have an appointment for my daughter to cut my hair tomorrow. I don’t usually have to pay her to spend time with me, but I really don’t mind. She’s doing a fantastic job, and I want to support her.

I need to work on my novel to some degree. I concede that the middle is slower going, but I need to get some mileage on it. I have some decent plans, and have to move the characters toward each other now.

I have to write my normal blogs, in addition to anything I’m cross posting with other writers.

With this in mind, I’m considering not even watching the Superbowl. I know for a red blooded American male, that’s blasphemy. I just don’t care that much about the game. I’m not invested in either team.

I suppose I could do like half the world, and watch the broadcast to see the advertisements. There isn’t much value to that either. I already know Carl’s Jr. is going to use boobs to market hamburgers. I think my Lisa Burton graphic proves I already know that lesson, as evidenced by my blog invitations.

Then my wife went and made me a salami and cheese platter. She didn’t want me to watch the game without snacks. She even bought me some outstanding beer to keep me company. (She loves me.) Β I’ll work my fingers raw, but come Sunday afternoon, the old pit bull and I are watching the game.

What are your writing plans? Do you have any marketing plans? Who’s watching the game, and are you invested in the outcome?

  1. Awwwww. That is a very nice wife. πŸ™‚


  2. No plans beyond moving stuff from the old dresser to the new (to us) dresser and maybe digging in the yard to get ready for the raised bed we’re installing next weekend. We don’t get cable or DISH so if we see the game it will be at the daughter-in-law’s house or a restaurant somewhere. We’re not invested either; I just love the camaraderie that builds among the fandom.


  3. Enjoy the weekend. You can always catch the good commercials on YouTube. Although, I hear there’s a good one with Terry Crews and Old Spice.

  4. All hail the wife who makes a platter and buys some special beer! No, I won’t watch the game. I’m sure The Mister will, although we have not discussed it. I seldom watch sports, and all the good ads will end up on my social media anyway πŸ˜‰ I will likely read. (Also beta reading…)
    Hope you enjoy it!


  5. Watching the two grandkids tonight while mama and daddy have “date night”…which is how I got into this mess to start with…Ha!


  6. I was actually going to stay home… But then my attorney invited me to his Superbowl party and now I feel like I have to go… But then again, I’m sick and on meds, so I may be able to bail on the plans. Who knows. But as for you, I hope you get lots of writing done! πŸ˜€ And I hope your wife has fun on her shopping spree. πŸ˜‰


  7. I’m going wedding gown shopping with my daughter today, and not certain of plans for Sunday. I won’t be watching the Superbowl, but my husband will, even though he’s not that into it this year. I will probably make some goodies and sit with him to eat for a few minutes, and then I’ll go watch something else. I’ll be involved with Downton Abbey later that night. Hope you and your wife both have fun!


  8. What a good wife. You’re a lucky man, but I think you know that. I’ll be writing Sunday while the hubby watches the game. Since we live in New England I’m supposed to be rooting for the Patriots. However, since the flat football “incident” I just don’t feel like cheering for them. So, I’ll just peek at the commercials. They crack me up.


  9. After numerous events of the past year, my view of American football has gone from disinterest to disgust. I plan to watch the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.
