Wow, wow, wow!
There have been so many amazing, exciting, nerve-wracking moments during the Olympics and I am officially addicted to watching these games. However, I’m running into a problem. I can’t decide if I want to know the outcome of an event prior to watching it on tv. Prime examples during the last two days involve Iowa’s own Lolo Jones and Shawn Johnson. Both competed during the early morning hours (Iowa time) and those competitions didn’t air on NBC until that night. I’m so torn! I’d love to be in suspense while watching, but I can’t stand being in the dark. For instance this morning when I got done teaching my step class at the Y, I saw Kevin Cooney. The first thing he said is, “Did you hear about Lolo?!?” I told him I hadn’t and then he asked if I wanted to know or if I wanted to find out tonight. I squirmed for a few moments and then said, “Tell me!” I have no willpower and no patience. How are you guys handling those moments?
I had a pretty productive weekend and it feels great to check some things off the ever-expanding to do list. Michael and I spent quite a bit of time in the yard, which was long overdue. I have managed to kill just about everything in our yard except the hardiest of plants so there was a lot of trimming and picking up to do. I’ve decided that some of the best therapy on the planet is cleaning (second only to working out). My house and yard are now fairly neat and clean and I started today with a good session at the gym so it’s a good day so far!
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend that’s fun and for a good cause …. join us at Des Moines Fire Fest on Saturday. A bunch of us are taking part in the water fights (should be interesting) and there will be everything from a 5k that morning, to live music at night.

It’s time for me to start looking over scripts for the early shows … have a great week everyone!
