Everyone seems to be absent from the board-my excuse (alibi? reason?)is well documented-how often can I claim to hate all things Winter? Which, by the way, I still do. But the rest of you-are you watching the Olympics-if so, which events hold your interest the most?
I have to admit-I am not watching much this year. I will probably watch the women's hockey game-assuming we get to the finals. And the men's final too-but I am finding the whole Olympics hard this time around. Last time-2010-not only were they in Vancouver, Canada-but Adam & I were enjoying them together. And I was totally unaware that it was his last time to enjoy them with me.
Several people have said that this year will be the most difficult-this is the year of "firsts". And I hope they are right-this month is the first Valentine's Day-& while picking out cards for our grandchildren, my eyes kept going to the ones that said "To our Son, with Love". I got the ones I needed, but it was not easy. In fact, Mike had to help me find the last couple-he'd gone off to find something else & came back to find me in a sad fog.
But back to the Olympics-what are you most interested in? I know Elspeth enjoys the bike races in the Summer Olympics-but what about Winter? Or is there anything to equal that? I used to love the figure skating-but the talk of scandal in the marking kind of turns my stomach, as well as the reason I just gave.
