Can't get enough


I honestly feel so sad right now knowing the Olypmics are over. I became competely obsessed with them. I would turn them on as I tried to carry on tasks throughout the day but I always ended up sitting on the couch just glued to them. Especially swimming I just couldn't get enough. I promise I started thinking of what sport I possibly could pick up to compete next Olypmics - I was thinking about rowing??? The olypmics just looks so fun and incredible, I want to be apart of it!! Since they've been on I am so motivated during my workouts, cause I just feel like I've got to step my game up so I can compete, wierd I know but really am inspired by all of them. I love the incredible stories behind the athletes. I think my new favorite person is Dara Torres, she is amazing to come back the way she did. Of course Micheal Phelps was another favorte to watch - unbelievable. As depressed as I feel right now, it probably is a good thing that they are over cause they started taking priority over lots of house work that sure needs to get done. Although during these past 2 weeks we did start and finish a major painting project of the enitre house, having the Olympics on helped keep my mind off of what I was doing. Stay tuned for the next post - painting project before and after. I just got to get the house put back in order before I can give a tour.

I can totally see you in the olympics! They really were so fun to watch this year, it makes me excited for the winter games again.
How far away are you from the Tucson airport? I want to come for a weekend or something. I would absolutely love that!

I'll support you 100% in your pursuit for the Olympic games. If anyone could make it... it'd be you. You're an animal Jessie. I'm excited to see the paint job. Are you happy with how it turned out?

I'm serious when I say of all the people I know, you are the closest to an Olympic athlete. I honestly think you should do it.

oh man. I agree.

I was totally thinking about how cool rowing is too. I don't think it's as fun to watch as it might be to do!

I have also spent the last few weeks trying to decide what my number one would be... That Misty May and Kerri Walsh are just so fun to watch (besides the skimpy bikinis :))

Jessie, I am expecting you to be in London in 4 years competing now. Seriously, you could do it. I loved Dara Torres too! I routed for her all the way. I want to see your painted house so bad! I am finally getting geared up to paint the girl's room. I actually bought paint....I know, I know...I am on fire. Now if I could just get one picture on a wall....
