Olympic Obsession!

I can't be the only one who stays up till the wee hours of the morning with Olympic fever..?? Sure I have DVR (with only a few hours left I might add),....but with 2 little ones that I don't want to ignore and a sincere hang up with watching something after it makes headlines, I have found myself chanting, cheering, and crying well into the AM's every night of these inspiring Olympics. I'm not kidding when I say I think I have seen every minute of NBC's Olympic coverage (except of course the commercials, and some of the daytime team sports- no offense water polo, I just can't handle thinking of you treading water that whole time, seriously? How? I can't watch it. You rock though.)

There is nothing like it! Seriously. The capabilities of the human body, the power of hard work and training, the setting and achieving of goals, the spirit of unity. I LOVE IT! It makes me want to go hug my neighbors and train for a marathon at the same time!

I'll be compiling a list of my favorite moments. I doubt it could be kept to a top ten. Far too exciting! Go USA, Go World!

Who's Busy?

I think almost anyone can say that they are busy. We all have more to do than time to do it. Lately I've piled quite a bit up on my plate. I like it that way. Along with the normal (if any part of life can be called that) family responsibilities I've added stimulating summer projects, amusing family visits (with all the extra house organizing preparation and activity planning), and an exciting (and a bit overwhelming) new calling as Young Women's President. Unfortunately my blogging has fallen a bit off the priority scale. Once our time is up with family, and my sweet hubbs returns to his full time teaching and studenting, I'll be anxious to write about all our summer adventures!

As for now... I'm going to end this to share in some of our favorite-family traditional-olympic cheering. Isn't it about time?!
