Holy cow. I thought I was going to have a full-on aneurysm watching the last minute of the TTT this morning. What a race! Was that stunning or what? God I've missed that event at the Tour.
And, as much as I do adore Cavendish now, I think it's probably healthy for him to eat a plate of humble pie tonight after all the trash talking he was apparently doing about winning that event. Reality checks are good for all of us every now and then and push us to work even harder.
Anyone else bored now with the whole LA vs AC thing? Of course I'm curious about the drama just like anyone else - it makes for fabulous gossip - but the media's obsession with analyzing every word that they, or anyone else on the team, says is getting a bit silly.
Soon we'll have a second little blue jersey at the bottom of the screen, this one to represent where Contador is - and as we get into the mountains we'll be able to watch the two little jersey's beat each other up until only one little jersey is left standing.
A housekeeping issue: Cathy suggested that, in order to avoid spoilers for those who have not yet watched the day's stage, I do something like what I've done in the past with a post for those who have seen the stage and a post for those who haven't. I don't know that I'll be posting every day during the race as I have in the past so I think that might get a little confusing. I might just suggest that, once the stage has begun for the day, people who don't want to spoil the ending wait until they've seen it before coming by to chat. Or, if there are other suggestions out there, let me know. I have taken to avoiding Facebook until I've seen the stage because I have too may cycling friends who insist on including the winner in their status updates.
Janann, so glad that things are going well with you and baby Liam. Sorry, I don't really have any advice about sibling jealousy or adjusting the older child to the new baby. My daughter didn't have too much trouble with the new addition. In fact, I think she has more trouble now that she's 7 and he's still only 4 as he always needs more help with things and she's told me that she feels like I spend more time with him. I just try to make a point of regularly doing something that involves just her and I. She loves that.
