What a game!

Wow! Did you watch the game? Canada vs. the US - what a hair raising, nail biting, gut clenching game! So fun!

We never go out of our way to watch sports. We are not sport aficionados. In past years for the Olympics, we couldn't care less. But this year, we've been checking out the metal count daily (hourly) and this game was not one we could miss. So we headed out to the bar (as we don't have cable). What a great experience that was! The energy and attitude in the bar was great - so many people cheering for Canada! We had so much fun we will definitely do that again. Now, if only the Oilers played better so we could get into the Stanley Cup playoffs...

I Has the Cold

I am sick.

When I get sick, it doesn't merely remain a cold. Oh no. The cold morphs into something much worse and affects all around me. It turns into a plague. Just ask my husband. After all, he was the one kind enough to share this cold with me.

Going now to curl up one the couch and watch movies because that is all the use I am good for today. Thank goodness it is a holiday today.

Happy Family Day to all celebrating.

Vancouver 2010

Just waiting for the final part of the opening ceremony to download. No, we don't have cable so we're downloading it. The only version my husband was able to find was the NBC coverage of the show.

So far, from what I've seen, I love the show they put on!

I love the projectors and the moving pictures on the floors.

Love the whales and the ice flows...

I just love all of it! I wish I could have been there for it!

This show has reminded me how proud of a Canadian I am and what a wonderful part of the world I live in. I hope that we bring in many medals but, even if we don't, I know our athletes will have a blast and put on a good show for the rest of the world.

Go Canada!
