Pass the Pride, Please

The Olympics is doing nothing for me getting my house cleaned.

I love watching even the mundane sports like Shuffleboard and Archery. I do draw the line at Bowling, though. Well, wait. Now that I think about it.....

Competitive to a fault, I love watching the best of the best. All of my girls have R's determination and my competitiveness and I do believe that one day we will be sitting in the stands watching one (or more) compete for the glory of her country and sport for the gold.

I love how the Olympics bring back memories of the dreams we had as children. I love seeing the glittering little eyes as we watch. I love the pride in country it inspires. I love the respect it demands. I love that every four years (actually two, now) my children can find a hero worthy of emulating. I love the Olympics. Can you tell?

Me too. I have always loved the Olympics. Haven't gotten to watch them much this year. A blowhard named Charley has been demanding to be center of attention.

First time here, first post, great blog :-)
