I have such a hangover today, which is strange because I really didn't have anything to drink yesterday (well okay, I had one drink that I nursed all day long in between serving food and being a hostess and watching the game and wiping butts-my kids' butts that is-and eating too much food and feeding my kids and and and). But I feel like I've been run over by a truck, none the less. However, since the Packers WON the SUPERBOWL yesterday my aches and pains and sore throat and tired body just don't matter. It was a GREAT day. And a fabulous party.
We had such a great group of people cheering our team on. We ended up with about 35 people in our house for the night.
Everyone was feeling so festive!
Finally, Todd and I headed off to bed a little after midnight (once we knew Grace was finally asleep). About a half an hour later as I was falling asleep Ben began screaming for us. We ran to his room and he yelled at us, "I have to POOP SO BAD!!!!!!" We raced him to the bathroom, sat him on the toilet and then he proceeded to cough so hard he almost threw up. That went on for a half an hour. We gave the kiddo a little more medicine, put some Vicks on the chest, and carted him off to bed once again. Tommy and Joe slept through the whole incident (even though Tommy and Ben share a room) and at last the night was quiet.
We got about 4 hours of sleep before Joe woke us up. We are tired this morning. Tired and happy with many wonderful memories to last us a lifetime.
I am so happy for my Packers. Such a great group of guys. After such a year of struggle and injuries and craziness they pulled it off. No one expected the Packers to do anything this year. Most teams wouldn't even make it to the playoffs with the injuries the Packers had. No one would have dreamed. But they did it. They brought the trophy home! Congratulations, Packers!!!!!!!
