Olympic Time

Welcome SITS friends, to my little corner of the blog o' sphere. I'm very excited to be selected as today's featured blogger. I look forward to sharing a chuckle or a perhaps an emotional connection in which you might say to yourself, "Are you kidding me, I look at the world in the same twisted way!" I know I've had that feeling reading your blogs and am continually amazed over all the things, we perfect strangers have in common.

4 years
2 1/2 weeks
An Hour
A Minute
A Second
A 10th of a Second
A 100th of a Second

All those years, all those weeks, all those hours devoted to being the best... A humbling thought that it all comes down to a minuscule increment of Time.

Tremendously humbling.

*I promise to keep the Olympic posts to a minimum but tonight I am so moved by all I've witnessed. From the devastatingly loss for Lolo Jones to the spectacular win by Shawn Johnson. I admit it, I'm an Olympic junkie.

Congrats to you my friend!

I cried when LoLo Jones lost, that was so sad...what a classy lady, to give that interview and own up to it not being her day rather than make excuses...It amazes me that these people give interviews seconds after they've lost and aren't just bawling their eyes out!

Did you see the guy, I think he was from Germany, but I could be wrong that won the weight lifting gold? Ugh! I cried my eyes out! I wanted him to win it so bad and he did..then he held up a photo of his wife who'd been killed in a car accident just that year when he won it...I bawled!

um...but if you tell anyone, I'll kick yer ass cuz everyone here just thinks my allergies were acting up. ;P

Hey there, SITSta! Is that a White Lab I see in your header? My SIL, Aunt Julie, has one named Moses. I've featured him a couple of times on my blog. You should stop in sometime and stay awhile!

I've really loved watching the Olympics this year also. I think mainly because my older son loves watching it with me.

Congrats on your SITS day! I love your header picture and quote. Butt prints. hehe

BTW, your dog is gorgeous. Looks a little like my Annie, but hairier.

And, I'm a total Olympic junkie! I scared my poor dog with my whooping and hollering at the 1/100th of a second finish. Love it.
