It's hard to imagine our lives being any different now than during the last Olympics. New baby, new house, new life. I feel much more rooted in who I am and what I'm doing now than I did then, but there is also a certain energy that accompanies first-time parenthood.
Um. Wait. Who am I kidding? No, I'm glad that's past us. Though there's no denying I would snap up another chance to care for an infant. I can't help myself; I just love babies so much. Luckily I'm in a good field for that!
Sheesh, how did I veer off into babytown? That happens sometimes. Anywho, what events are you looking forward to watching? We are of course zealots for rowing, but our fanatical devotion also extends to swimming, diving, tennis (No Rafa? Whaaaa?!), the marathon, gymnastics, archery...in short, I love them all.
I woke up this morning thinking: MUST EXERCISE. That Olympic fever gets me every time. Looking for an extensive but appropriate amount of pain, I sought out a spin class. Yowza. Assuming the kids stay healthy, I think I might just exercise every day of the Olympics. Yoga, running, swimming, whatever. I'm going to get moving.
Admittedly, part of my motivation to work out daily comes from having signed myself up
So Olympics, babies, exercise, and a touch of Chris Farley. Whattaya think? Are you with me? Let's do it!
