Post Olympic Blues

March 11, 2010

After years of planning and excitement, 3 unforgettable weeks, it's all over... and Scott and I are blue. We feel there's a significant lack of excitement in our lives. Not that our lives are boring, by no means is that the case, but we haven't been to a major sporting event, haven't cheered until we lose our voices, haven't clapped until our palms hurt and haven't chanted CAN-A-DA in what feels like forever!

There has been talk of Sochi in 2014, but we don't want to make any decisions until we see how they plan on running it and if decent tickets will be available to Canadians.

Okay, I guess I should stop wallowing and get back to work now.

2. Being in Whistler and being able to take this amazing picture:

3. The Peak to Peak Gondola between Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains.

4. Sitting in Pacific Coliseum before the Figure Skating Gala and getting really emotional because I know the Olympics are coming to an end and it's been an amazing trip!

Wow....the YWCA had an airport for $11 each we went direct from the hotel to airport. Airport said to get here 4-5 hours we did...and the place is almost empty. Through security and checked bags in less than 30 mins...less than an hour hotel to gate....that's amazing...

So since we are so early, Pam and I are now on standby for an earlier flight! Might get out of here at 11:30 AM...
