Thank you all so much for your encouragement and your honesty yesterday. I’m working through this transition and just trying to get myself back to a peaceful place so I can enjoy it! In the interest of full disclosure, I wanted to share that I still have a few obligations to fulfill in the next few weeks and you’ll still see a few Huggies posts every now and then, including one later today. These opportunities help my family and I’m thankful for them.
We are in the midst of Olympic mania around here. I kind of get the impression that Todd just watches to humor me, but I can tell he enjoys watching, too. Maybe not the women’s gymnastics so much, but he does enjoy it.
He especially loved watching Aly Raisman’s parents react to her uneven bar routine the other night. And then we cast Kristen Wiig as Aly Raisman’s mother.
I was so happy for the Fab Five last night! They looked so so happy, especially Jordyn Wieber. The smile that lit up her face during her floor routine was just radiant.
And MacKayla Maroney’s vault? Holy flying teenager, Batman! Incredible!
We were also super excited for Michael Phelps and his record-breaking medal count that he achieved last night. He’s just such a once-in-a-lifetime athlete and he’s been incredible to watch.
Todd has completely tolerated my constant bickering about NBC’s Olympics coverage. They tweet the results and hold back all the coverage for us in the evenings, which I understand, so I’m just staying away from Twitter. Except when NBC finally shows us the events, they take up so much of that coverage time with fluff pieces and awkward interviews.
We’re leaving for vacation on Friday. I really cannot wait. I have lined up some really great ladies to guest blog while I’m away. I’m excited to turn over my little space on the internet to them to share what’s on their hearts.
My Kindle is all set up for our trip. I’m looking forward to having lots of opportunities to read. But with the Olympics going on, I have a feeling we’ll all just be huddled in front of the TV every night on vacation because we refuse to miss a night of Olympic coverage. We just can’t get enough!
Can we go back to 1996 and just watch the gymnastics Olympic Gala again? Anyone remember when the Magnificent Seven did “the macarena?” Classic!
Can we also discuss how crazy it is that the Fab Five is too young to really know what happened in 1996 with the Magnificent Seven unless they watch old VHS tapes (remember those?) or You Tube videos. I feel so old!
Can y’all believe August is here? Where did the summer go? There are kids that are having their first day of school today. This baffles me. Time goes too fast.
