Life: Where I'm obsessed

With the Olympics.

I always get this way with the Summer Olympics. I love them. I love how there are still athletes out there who love their sport for the sport and the competition, not the money. I love the beauty of the opening ceremonies and the personal touches put into them by the host country.

I am severely sleep deprived because of the Olympics but I don't mind. It's worth it to see Michael Phelps work his magic. He is beyond awesome and I am thrilled for him. It's worth the bags under my eyes to see little Shawn Johnson be so happy just to be there competing against the worlds' best gymnasts (even though some of them are young children and some did NOT deserve the high scores they got, don't even get me started) and it's worth my crankiness to see Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh be so dominant in the sand and to see our local girl, NASTIA LIUKIN, once again bring home the gold in the gymnastics all-around competition. This week? Is all about track, volleyball and more diving and I cannot wait.

I will be bummed when the Olympics are over but part of me will be glad because then I can sleep again.

Life: Where stealing blog ideas is fun!

In the spirit of passing it on, I found this on - my friend Kelly's blog and thought I'd play along. We're totally stealing other people's things, yo.

1) As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.

2) Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It’s actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments.

LIFE: Where I haven't blogged lately

Because frankly, my life has not been blog-worthy. Work is work and J is well, J. I'm not sure about things right now. I am starting to feel things I am sort of scared of feeling and I don't know if he is. I don't want to make him a priority in my life when I may just be an option in his. (My friend Emily (who is a genius) gave me that and I have not forgotten it. She said it in her blog and I needed to see that. It's like she knew I needed it.)

Anyway, I need to have a little talk with him but it seems lately that no time is a good time. At least on the phone anyway. I'd like to do it in person but getting him here on his 2 days off instead of his second job is evidently like getting blood from a turnip. Yeah. His second job? Not real thrilled about it.

At any rate, it's hotter than hell right now. I think even Lucifer himself would be bitching about this heat because it SUCKS! There is a storm forming in the Gulf and sadly, I don't think we will get anything from it. Other than that, life is good. I should have cable and internet soon at home which thrills me because it's almost Olympics time!! I love the Olympics. I love to watch the athletes who are, for the most part anyway, still doing it for the love of the game.

Well there is my update for now. If anything exciting happens, I'll be sure and let you know. Later!!
