I've been dying for a pair of the Olympic mitts that everyone is sporting in Vancouver but haven't got around to ordering them. Well guess what I got in the mail yesterday?? Thanks Mom!!! Now I can cheer like a pro.
I'm thoroughly enjoying this Olympic experience. I've been watching as much as I can and since I'm home almost all the time, I pretty much see it all. I'm thrilled for the medals we've earned and am just as thrilled with the great performances that have put our athletes in positions like 4th, 5th and 6th. There are several of those rankings and I say 4th (5th or 6th) in the world ain't bad. As I write this tonight we are looking at getting at least one more medal from woman's short track speed skating so by the time you read this our total will be six. And possibly seven since two of the four competitors in the final are from our proud country. GO CANADA GO!!
And my favorite non-Canadian thing from the games so far?... those checkered curling pants. Just for them I cheer Norway on to a silver medal. Second to the Martin rink of course.
