If you keep up with my blog at all, you may have noticed my absence, but per my previous post, I’d like to think that it was a legitimate and much needed one. After two weeks of a little bit of sulking and a lot of soul-searching, I am back and feeling so much more like myself. Thank you, dear readers, for sticking with me through it all!
Rather than dwell on the past, however, I’d like to move into the present and chat about a little thing called the Olympics. Have any of you been watching?
Admittedly, I’m not much of a sports spectator. My husband, on the other hand, can spout every sports statistic that ever existed over the last half-century, so occasionally (out of guilt) I try to pay attention. Surprisingly, I’ve actually enjoyed watching the Olympics quite immensely. It’s been an excellent bonding experience for my husband and I, and a huge learning experience for me. Who knew tennis was so incredibly exciting and nerve-wracking (did any of you watch that match between Federer and del Potro?!)? Or that beach volleyball could be just as fun to watch as it is to play? Or that diving was so suspenseful? And I’ve always been a bit partial to gymnastics in previous Olympics, but even moreso this year – and history was made with little Ms. Gabby Douglas!
It is so inspiring to watch and cheer for these remarkable athletes and actually quite astounding how unifying the Olympic spirit is – 204 different countries respectfully coming together for one, single purpose. Of course, that one, single purpose is to win so I must (respectfully) say – GO USA!
