365/43 Olympic Junkies

Just a warning we are Olympic Junkies, we love them! For the next 16 days our TV will be tune to them and we will cheer on USA and the Dutch (Hubby has a soft spot for the Netherlands). We actually cheer on most any athlete, the skill and commitment it takes to compete in the Olympics is awe inspiring. We will listen to all the side stories about the athletes and at times sit on the edge of our seats as it comes down to hundredths of seconds (think short track). We were struck mute as we tune in for the opening ceremonies to hear that there was a death on the luge track. What a tragedy, our heart go out to the family of Nodar Kumaritashvili.
The opening ceremony was wonderful and it kept us up way too late, but we will watch until the end most every night simply because this only happens every two years (we love the Summer Olympic as well). Just think at the next Winter Olympics in 2014 our kids will be 17, 15, 6 and 5. Oh my goodness I think that thought is enough to turn my hair gray!
