Tooooo Much TeeeeeVeeeeee.......

I'm surfacing from my massive Olympics Binge. I just can't help myself. Every two years I find myself absolutely glued to the television just glutting myself on them. Until I've had enough. This year it happened on Saturday morning. I had been doing my normal thing; finding any excuse to be in front of the television queuing up another episode of the Olympics telecast when suddenly I realized I was done. It was right in the middle of the side-by-side snowboard thing when I noticed that I no longer cared. Over the past 15 days or so I hadn't missed a moment. (Okay, I did fast-forward through a few bobsled runs and the like, but you can hardly blame me. The camera work on those long icy paths just makes me nauseated.) I even watched most of the ice-dancing and am a little sheepish to admit that I thought the final performances were pretty neat. (Aboriginal costumes aside.) And then..bam. Done. Please let me turn this off and go DO something.

Obviously the blogging has lagged a little in the meantime. I can't place the entire blame on the Olympics; part of it goes to my almost-9-month old. She spends her entire days either being carried around by me, briefly sleeping, or being set down to play, instantly rolling onto her tummy and then getting really mad that she can't crawl yet. I'm not getting much done around here. Trust me, you should see the house. I'm up at quarter to twelve tonight determined to get the last load of laundry in the dryer before I retire.

I have a few blog posts to catch up on, but I think I'll just quickly post a couple of sweet-fat-nekid baby pictures because they make me happy. Nothing like elbow dimples to make me smile.

We too are resurfacing. And I had a very similar moment. I was suddenly very sick of being in front of the TV until way too late at night. I loved them but boy am I glad they are over.

I'm feeling the overdose, too! I have the closing ceremonies recorded but just can't bring myself to watch them...yet. I'm sure in a week or two I will miss the Olympics and be able to stomach a few more hours of Olympic glory.
I LOVE those chubby thighs! What a doll.

We are also resurfacing and trying to go to bed "early" now that we don't stay up late with the Olympics. She is so adorably chubby and cute! Nice pictures!
