Watching the Olympics is exhausting

My husband and I, like many others, have been staying up late this past week to watch the Olympic Games. Wow, we are exhausted! It's a beautiful afternoon and we're both too tired to do anything. Okay, maybe the two hours we spent playing tennis earlier today added to our exhaustion, but really we shouldn't be this tired. I blame our current lethargic states to a severe lack of sleep.

I blame you, Michael Phelps, and your magnificent abs. Katie Hoff, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh- you're also to blame. Mainly, anyone who plays beach volleyball is to blame. My husband has now proclaimed your sport his favorite viewing activity, which is a serious blow to water polo. Then, to add to our lack of sleep I have to wake up and watch the women's soccer players kick butt in the a.m.

It's rough, really, it is to watch all of you fantastic and talented athletes. But, I love it!!! I'll gladly suffer a few lethargic days to watch all of your magnificent accomplishments.

Jewels is also exhausted, but she looks a lot cuter than I do past out on the couch.

Jax, on the other hand, was mesmerized by the men's steeplechase that was just on tv. He's probably confused as to why the runners were jumping over the water and not rolling around it. Gesh, silly humans.


  1. Seriously, I'm amazed that anything got done in the US since the 8th.

  2. Loved the win on Saturday night. A few of our neighbours got together and watched it, and they played it after the Ravens game, and then showed Michael everyone cheering for him. That was well cool!
