A Day Off

19 08 2008

I actually wrote this post on Friday, the 15th and for some reason couldn’t publish it. . .

I am up early this morning because my sister and I are heading to a few yard sales in the hopes of some good deals on gender-neutral baby items for her. I’ve hardly done any yard-saleing this year which is unusual for me so I’m looking forward to scouting out the deals.

Conrad is taking today off and we are heading to the zoo with the kids. I’m packing a lunch and we are going to spend one last day together before school starts. . .I can’t believe we’re down to the last few days of summer vacation. School starts on Tuesday, the 19th.

I’m an Olympic junkie. I can’t get enough of watching the games! There’s something amazing to me about so much of the world coming together all for sports. Oddly, I often find myself cheering on the other countries. The USA has so many more resources available for training, etc. So when another country beats us out I think it’s extra special. I will have to say, however, that I am a big Michael Phelps fan. I just read an article yesterday about his dietary habits: 12,000 calories a day. Here’s a sample breakfast: 3 fried-egg sandwiches, 2 cups of coffee, a 5 egg omelet, bowl of grits, 3 pieces french toast, 3 chocolate chip pancakes. They also listed his other meals which were equally calorie rich then made the comment that he actually has a hard time keeping weight on. Wow. Guess I should have been an olympic swimmer.

Off to the yard sales. . .
