Redemption for February!


I spent last week happily entertained by women's figure-skating at the Olympics. I love, Love, LOVE figure-skating, and since it's not on very much, I really look forward to events like this. It didn't disappoint. The skating was beautiful and the skaters were extremely talented (they're the best in the world, after all). If I could go back to my childhood, I would have taken figure-skating lessons along with my ballet classes. But it's okay. If I ever have a daughter, you know what she'll be doing. If she doesn't like it, I won't force it, but if she does...she'll have one happy momma who will be able to live vicariously through her experiences. That's why we have kids anyway, right? Ha ha.

I didn't watch at all!!

I do think figure skating is awesome, though.

This is the only event I saw in the olympics.. and it was lovely. I found myself emotional a few times after they finished.. and cried. I felt so sad for the girl from Canada that lost her Mother just days before.
She had lots of courage.
Have a great week!

Ann Marie--I know, that was so touching. It made me cry, that's for sure! I'm so glad she got a medal. She really deserved it.

How much fun that we both blogged about skating this week. It is delightful to watch. My son actually enjoys skating more than my daughter, albeit on hockey skates and going fast.
