Super-Exciting Weekend Plans

Happy weekend people! I'm so excited for this weekend because I don't have a single plan. Not one. The past few weekends have been so busy, so I can't wait to just relax and clean and do crafty stuff and laundry. But if I know my husband, and I think I know him well, he will most likely find some social activity to involve us in. He's such a little social butterfly...he just can't help himself.

I personally am excited to watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics tonight. I have a confession to make: I've never watched the Olympics. Summer or Winter. I've seen like two minutes of it and then gotten bored and switched the channel, but I've never been one of those people who are superpumped about it and watch them every day. Does that make me un-American? I certainly hope not.

Actually, one year I did watch the Olympics, but only the figure skating, and I thought it was uh-mazing. It was the year of Oksana Bauil and Nancy Kerrigan. I have no idea if either of them ever competed more than this one year (when did that whole knee thing happen anyway?), but in 1994 I was 10 years old and I thought they were the coolest ever. On the playground we always "played ice skating", and I was always Oksana, because I had blonde hair like her. I thought she was the coolest anyway, so that was fine by me. We would slide around on our tennis shoes and spin and jump and I'm pretty sure we looked like lunatics...but it was great fun. So yeah. That's the extent of my experience with the Olympics.

I'm determined to pay more attention this summer. I actually have a friend who's husband is competing in wrestling, so I'll definitely need to be watching that. We'll see how it goes, I may even enjoy it.

So to all you Olympics-fanatics out there, I hope you have a wonderful two weeks or however long it lasts. Everyone else, have a super weekend. I plan on it.


  1. I plan on watching them too! I'm pretty excited about the Opening Ceremony tonight, myself! It's so funny you mentioned the figure skating because that was like the last time I really watched the Olympics. That was such a huge deal though as little girls! Hope you have a good weekend!

  2. Yay for weekends with no plans! We've been heading out of town every weekend for the last month, so I'm SO excited to just be home during this one. Ahhhh. & I totally am with ya on the whole Olympics thing. I like to watch, but I'm not too into it. I get bored after a while. The only year I was obsessed was the same year as you! Ha! We also played ice skating on the playground. He he. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
