The Fantasy

My mind drifts off quite a bit these days, well, to be honest, this has been going on for a few months now, but the last two weeks, it has happened with more frequency. These mental escapes usually occur during breakfast or dinner conversation (or arguing), and by the time my thoughts settle back into my brain, and I rejoin the present, I realize that I have missed much of the discussion (disagreement). The few seconds of guilt I feel over abandoning my husband and children during family bonding time are fleeting. As I look around the table at the faces that are so precious to me, I realize, that these human beings that I love with every fiber of my being, didn’t even notice I went missing (figuratively speaking of course). I have tried, I have, to get up to date on the subject and join in on their conversation (negotiations), but truth be told, I am not wired for it. So for now, I will sigh deeply, perhaps take up knitting, and brace myself for the ride. The NFL kicks off Thursday, September 7th with the season opener, Our Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Patriots. The teams have been drafted. Trade deals are underway. The excitement is mounting. Fantasy Football has arrived! Let the games begin!

P.S. In the next several months, you can expect more blog posts on this subject! As the saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, write about them!”

    Sigh…..only because I understand your feelings. Happy to teach you to knit, though!! That means I’d see more of you.
