There is NO “Off Season”

November 22, 2012

Sometimes I really can’t grasp CC’s post football season commitment. I wish that he could take a longer break or step back for a bit. I have hardly seen him all week and tomorrow, the one day I could really get some stuff done with him, he’s got a football meeting. I know the meeting is at 9am, and I have a girl friend coming by for a bit at 11, but we had a list of projects to do and so far, not one has been done.

Ideally I would get up at 8 am and prep and paint the one wall I want to do in the bedroom. I would also love to take a couple hours and install all the drawer pulls on the kitchen cabinets. It’s just not going to get done. These are the moments that make me want to permanently have Monday’s off just to get shit done.

It’s so frustrating. I know he has to do certain things, but I will never honestly understand the importance of inserting a new defense when you won’t actually be able to work on it with the kids until the spring. I’ve got another 37 days till our trip to the coast, I just hope that I get his full attention. It makes me want to pull my hair out. I just really want his attention, sometimes i even crave it. I hate having to do the goo-goo eyes and flirty, suggestive bullshit just to get him distracted long enough to shut football down. Sometimes I swear he would screw a football if he could.

I’m supportive, I’m accommodating, I’m easy going, but I have breaking points. This is always mine. I am much more understanding during the season, but even though I know how damn important the off season prep is, I just wish it was a true off season. CC’s brain doesn’t work that way. It never will. I have to accept that. I have this struggle ever year, every month, occasionally every week. It’s hard. Sometimes I worry that I won’t be able to do this for the rest of my life, but it’s our life. I agreed to take part. All I can do is voice my feelings then stand aside. This is love. This is the give and take of marriage.

    Hey can I help on Sunday at all? I can paint or do drawers. I have power tools!


    • Of course! I need a drill anyway to do the drawer and I have to go get another pack of drawer pulls. I am still hoping to get that wall painted today. We can discuss it tonight, my new washer and dryer will be delivered tomorrow!
