Like everyone else in the world, the Olympics keep making me cry. To watch these athletes put it all on the line, and then push themselves past that line…It’s just breathtaking.
What else has been bringing the tears this week? Watching Baby Girl suffer through her first bout with a stomach virus. To watch your baby lose her baby fat in one week and stagger around like a drunk from dehydration and fatigue is NOT fun. She broke my heart daily this week, and I just know she gave me some new gray hairs…
Finally, these 3 posts really got to me:
- The Fat Friend by Allie Sanders
- Julie Glover’s post, Talking To Children About Death
- Find Inspiration in Your Broken Paths by Samantha Gluck
On the writing front, it was slow-slow-SLOW! If I wrote a page on the WIP this week, I’d be shocked. However, I feel blessed that it was the only major ball I dropped.
Some weeks you have to be grateful for treading water rather than drowning.
How did your week go? Have my writing friends been writing? Does anyone have any big events to share? What has been your favorite Olympic moment so far?
