The Olympics are coming!

I'm so excited that the Olympics are almost here! I don't know what it is about them but I can't get enough. I watch just about every event or tape them if they're on at odd hours. I find myself crying when they even play the Olympic song on a commercial!

I taped the Olympic Trials for Gymnastics, Diving, and Swimming partly so that I could see them and follow along with how the athletes are doing but also to try and get my 5 year old in the spirit. She really has no interest until they're on and she sees how excited I get. Then she really enjoys it. After all, we just saw Michael Phelps and Katie Hoff both break the world record for the 400 IM Swim. How can you not get excited about that!?

I guess you know where you'll find me on the night of August 8th :) I'll be sitting in my family room watching the opening ceremony...crying.

The last OLympics kept me company in the middle of the night as I nursed my newborn , Mackenna (July 22) . This time my four year old, Mackenna will be watching and cheering with me! How time flies!!

I totally agree! We used to watch all the events as kids. The TV was on 24/7 during the olympics. I'm so glad I have DVR now to watch the fun parts. Can't wait! And it's cool in starts on 8-8-08!

Yes, I am in Portland........well used to be. I'm now across the river in Washington. But I'm in Portland everyday, so I still feel like I live there.
