Hey, did you know I was going to the Olympics?

Long time, no post!  Things have been mucho crazy around here recovering, getting back to normal, working, planning my trip.  Uber amounts of crazy fun times!

On the weight front, not going to lie, as much as I wanted to make it a priority before my trip, I did not.  I'm hanging tough and not gaining, but that's about it.  I got back to Jazzercise and running a bit which is making my body feel better and better.  After the trip I will start getting myself back to the hardcore schedule from before the surgery so I can get my body back to where it was.  YAY!

I have chosen to be very zen and "whatever will be, will be" about everything right now.  I could easily be stressed out with some things but I have decided that it isn't worth it.  I sold some of my extra Olympic tickets on eBay.  I had bought them by mistake, so I was hoping to get my money back out of them.  As of now, I am at 4x their value!!  If the guy from Switzerland ever pays me, I will be at 5.5x their value!! 

It has been stressful getting everything paid in and shipped, but I keep reminding myself that this unexpected money will pay for almost a full week of my hotel room.  Yeah.  It was significant.

On the other side, I won an eBay auction for some tickets, but the guy hasn't shipped them yet.  DUDE, I leave in a week.  Get on it! 

I swear that I was a travel agent in a different life.  I have the most kick-ass itinerary planned!  Now if it would just stop raining... 

It is hard to say what I'm most excited about.  I mean I KNOW I'm excited to see my volleyball boys.  But I'm also excited to just be a part of it, you know?  Soak up the atmosphere.  I told my SIL that the weather would suck, but we are going to carry sunshine in our pockets.  No matter what happens, I will be exactly where I should be! 

Another fun thing on the itinerary is that I plan to see Justine!!!  I will be nasty from Jazzercise since I won't have time to shower, but I'm so excited that we were able to find a time that works.

Random thoughts everywhere.  That is how my brain is working these days!

Justine said...

YAY - we get to meet up in just under two weeks! By which time you'll also have seen a whole week's worth of the Games - how exciting is that?
Oh, and by the way - the sun is shining over here, big time (well, big for the UK!) - it's due to be in the 20s all week long. At last.

OMG Beth, I am super slack on the getting organised and arranging a time to meet front. I am so sorry. Would you still like to? I am fairly crazy the first week of the games but week 2 is pretty clear.
Justine is telling the truth about the weather though, it's blooming lovely now!! Whoop whoop!xx

Andrea said...
