I've been procrastinating posting, but I saw a post by Juno today wherein she says she's trying to post even if it's 'small and sucky', and realised something was better than nothing.
I finished so many things in 2009, you'd be astonished. I've decided I want to make 2010 about finishing - aiming for NO unfinished objects by the end of the year. Finished, or frogged - that's my new motto.
I'm waiting for a sunny day to take a picture of Dad's vest. It's AMAZING but, I fear, one of those things that looks better in real life.
Dad's doing great, except for the weakness and fatigue...one of those annoying 'time' things.
I have a cold and am very crabby about this.
How much did I love the Opening Ceremonies? A LOT much. Tears of patriotic joy.
You know what I've noticed? The Canadian team is amazing. I'm not talking about their race performances, or their medal chances or fitness or whatnot - I'm talking about their grace. Whether they medal or not, they are so......non-egocentric. Here's the interview with Alexandre Bilodeau after his gold-medal mogul run. It's all about the family, and the staff, and the volunteers, and Canadians being "super supported" (which I love), and not all about "I was so ON today" or "I knew it was mine" or any of that elite-athlete arrogance you often see. (Although, aside - has anyone else noticed you get a lot more of that in the Summer Games?)
SO GLAD Mr HalfSoled finally bought a better TV last year. I'm loving the Olympics on forty-inch high-definition LCD.
