Ok, so I know it’s been ages since I’ve written – I thought I was going to get a vacation once I got Beth to graduate, but nooooo, she decided to go right to grad school, no vacation, no job, no income, what I thought was going to be live on easy street just turned into more work for me. I thought when I stopped working at Serta I’d get to sleep at night. How was I supposed to know when Erin recruited me that I’d sleep even less?
I finally decided enough was enough; it’s summer, summer session is over, fall semester hasn’t started yet, I was going to take some well deserved time to watch the Olympics. So far I’ve seen some women’s beach volleyball, men’s and women’s team gymnastics and LOTS of swimming. I think it would be really cool to train for the Olympics, so far, all I can tell is that Michael Phelps and I have completely opposite body types. He’s just over 6’, I’m just over 6”. He’s got muscular arms and a six pack, I’ve got noodle arms and a keg shaped body. I think the real deciding factor in my Olympian status is not my body type or ability, but if I can afford one of those special speedy swim suits...anybody know if they make one that's actually self propelled?
