I was reading on Natalie and David's blog about the Olympics and decided that I needed to write something about them too! I, due to my work schedule, am able to stay up and watch pretty much all of the Olympics. And I just have to say GO USA and GO Michael Phelps!!! We are such a competitive nation and I am so proud to be a part of it--the nation, not the Olympics! I must also say that Chris is seeing a side of me he hasn't really ever seen before. As I watch the Olympic athletes compete, I get all tense and nervous and anxious for them! We were at our neighbors on Sunday watching Michael Phelps and when he won his race I jumped up and shouted and it scared their little boy and he started crying! I felt so bad! When someone I want to do well does well, I scream or jump off the couch or throw a pillow or something! Chris thinks I'm crazy!! During the women's all-around artistic gymnastics finals, I was so nervous that my knuckles were white from squeezing my hands together so hard! I also have to mention that as soon as Nastia Liukin took gold and Shawn Johnson took Silver, I ran into my bedroom and woke Chris up to tell him the results! It was about midnight and Chris gets up for work at 5:30a.m., so I hope it doesn't affect him too badly tomorrow!
