I confess I've been glued to either the tv or my laptop, drinking up aerial skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding fast and fancy, bobsledding, hockey and most of all, figure skating. This year NBC (bless them) have offered the entire competition online, long but so wonderful to see all of the amazing skaters instead of the top 6 or 8 on prime time tv.

I get out of bed early and watch online while eating my oatmeal. I keep an eye on various events while working in my studio, late at night I watch prime time tv, snippets of many events combined with special interest stories and, hideously, commercials.  

GAWD, how come the Super Bowl gets all the good stuff?  We get the little girl asking for 60 bucks instead of 40 to babysit because they drive her home in a fancy vehicle. I'm so sick of this commercial, which is now playing for the fourth or fifth time this evening.

Oh well, it's worth it.  The two weeks of gathering equipment and fiddling with cables that didn't work almost made me say to hell with it.  The pageantry and the sheer beauty of lifetime athletes competing at the highest level I find inspiring and exciting.

So, here I am, curled up with Dandy, watching tv, feeling very lazy but mentally planning my quick trip to Texas this week.  I cannot stay away from my girls for very long.  The challenge now is having my children spread out by six hours, Texas is a big place.  There may be a trip to Austin for a day or two depending.

This has been a tough few months, endless illness and hospital stays for young and old. More than ever I feel the need for a companion but the search proves frustrating. Oh well, things can change quickly.

Goodnight, sweet dreams.
