Oh MY ! I am watching the Olympics tonight .....can I just say WOW! Team U.S.A gymnastics men's team is AWESOME! They are sticking their landing and making the other teams wonder what is going on.
Watching Michael Phelps swim is FABULOUS! I get tears in my eyes as I watch his mom cheer on her boy. I know she is just bursting with pride for her son. How sweet that he gives the flowers to his sisters.
I am so proud of our athletes. Listening and watching to their stories of injuries, training, how much time they spend in preparing for this time amazes me. They are dedicated!
I am glued to the tube! So glad they have commercial
I can almost feel the emotions all the way from Beijing!! Can you?

Talk to me...have you watched any of the Olympics this week?

Who rocks the house? U.S.A ROCKS THE HOUSE!!!!!

Hey Darlene,

I haven't watch very much yet. I need to check the schedule. I really like the women's gymnastics.

Have you heard anything about your job? Still praying.

Have a great day!

You go girl!!! Yeah, I've been watching and loving it. I was jumping off the couch Sunday night watching the men's relay. You know, the one where we beat France :)

Swimming, diving, gymnastics, beach volleyball, I love it! And everyone is doing so well.

As usual though, all of the "human interest" stories are making me cry. I even saw a visa commercial that made me cry - and I'm not normally much of a crier!
