On Jealousy

Some things we know about ourselves and they aren't too pretty.  One thing I know about me is that I have a tendency toward jealousy.

I am jealous of the folks who have big shore houses.  I envy those who have traveled Europe.  I wish to be one of those folks with the custom kitchen and Subzero fridge.  I sigh when the Porsche Cayenne idles throatily next to my Honda CRV.

I have plenty and am quite lucky I know.  I get tot he beach a week a year.  I have traveled the US extensively.   My kitchen .. well my kitchen needs work!  And who wouldn't want a Porsche?

But today I am positively GREEN with envy.

Matt is in Green Bay for the Eagles season opener  against the Packers.  He is joined by my uncle Bill, cousins Pat and Dan and Pat's fiancee Audrey.  They are among the luckiest folks I know today.  To be at the center of all that is holy in football and be able to root the Eagles on in weather that isn't frigid.   MMMMMM. Jealousy and envy just don't quite cover the feeling.

Go Birds!!!! 31-21 over the Pack at Lambeau.  I am sure Matt will have pictures!
