Last week I wrote about the Olympics and the way it brings our family--and our nation--together (http://activerain.com/blogsview/638157/Ode-to-the-Olympics).
It has been 9 days since we watched that amazing opening ceremony. So much has happened: we learned that the little girl singing in the ceremony was not actually the little girl singing, Michael Phelps has proven himself to be the most elite of elite athletes, Dara Torres has given the 'over 40' crowd a little extra inspiration and countless athletes have proven that all of their hard work was worth it! We celebrate them all...but I am exhausted!
I am not a late night person and I have not gotten to bed before 11:30 pm since this started and I have still missed some of the great moments. Last night we were at a wonderful dinner party. At 10:18 we all got up from the table and left the deck to go in and watch Michael Phelps swim ...and then we kept watching (I confess to watching the tv through the window when Dara Torres was swimming for her silver medal).
I bring this up because I would really love to go to bed early tonight with a good book, or even catch up on some of my television shows. But I cannot. We are all in this marathon together and we must cheer for the team!
