Sorry guys, I've been swamped with work (good thing), struggling to find time to work on the novel, and trying to keep up with two busy kids who have a summer filled with a plethora of activities.
Also, I just can't get into the Olympics.
I don't know if you had to be paying attention earlier on or if the Olympics is something that you have to have loved before but I just can't muster up much interest. I tried to watch the cycling but somehow misunderstood the TV schedule here and missed most of the events. I tune in every now and then when there's nothing else on but it's always some event like beach volleyball or synchronized swimming that just bores me to tears.
I love the idea of the best of the best in the world competing. I love the celebration of hard work, determination and skill. I love hearing the stories of the individuals who are there to win. I'm facinated by Michael Phelps' wing-span. But, for some reason, even with all that, it just doesn't do it for me.
Anyway, I can see that lots of you are enjoying every moment and that's awesome so off you go, have fun!
