*waves* Hi! Remember me? Believe it or not, I am a blogger! Unfortunately, I have not been much of one lately. Yesterday marked the closing of the Winter Olympics, though, so here I am! Yes, I was obsessed with the Olympics. This is nothing new. It only happens with the winter ones, so it is only 17 days every four years. I do not feel guilty! I actually feel pretty excited. We won 26 medals; with 14 of them being gold. The record for gold at the Winter Olympics was 13, so we beat the record!
And, AND, WE WON GOLD IN HOCKEY!!!!!!!!! I was so excited! First the women and then the men. The men beat Russia for the first time in 50 years, so that game was awesome, but then to play the US for the second-time after a round-about road and WIN! It was the most exciting hockey I have seen in a while.
I was excited for the Olympics for weeks (er, months) beforehand, so the cc was prepared that I was going to be off in another world for a couple weeks, but he venomously stated that he was NOT going to watch with me. He is one of those guys that does not watch sports at all. The first few days we fought over the TV. Then, one day I was not home and my cellphone rang. It was the cc telling me that someone just won a gold medal and then going on with the details. He didn't necessarily care, but he knew that I was missing it and would want to know. We watched the Olympics together from there on out. If one of us wasn't home and something exciting happened we called the other one. When the cc had to work during one of the hockey games, we called each other back and forth so I could tell him the score and then we watched the last few minutes together. It was really fun. I am so happy that he changed his mind and watched them with me. He claims he wouldn't have watched any of it if not for me.
So, I didn't read or blog or lots of other things that I should have been doing. And, yes, I really missed everyone, but I wouldn't trade the last couple weeks for anything. Canada came together as a country and I have lots of great memories to carry with me. So, I am back!
