I have to apologize for not keeping up with my daily Olympics posts. You see, a lovely lady decided to visit my hometown by the name of Fay. Yes, I'm talking about Tropical Storm Fay. The bitch (pardon my language) decided to land right smack in between my city and the one just north of us. Between getting my house and my work (I work at a tennis club with 38 tennis courts, so we had to take down the nets, etc.) I just didn't have enough time to watch as many events and blog about them as I would have liked. I did, however, make sure I watched Michael Phelps make history with his perfect 8 for 8 gold medals!! Way to go Michael!!
Anyways, Fay came through and we really didn't have all that much damage. One tree in our front yard was knocked over (it was a smallish tree) and we were able to stand it back up and hold it up with wooden posts. We lost power for about 15 hours. My 2 year old did not like it one bit. Every morning, I let him watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, his favorite show...and the only one I let him watch. When he woke up yesterday and he couldn't watch it, oh the puppy lip that boy made. lol Our generator also decided to take the day off, so we had no power until about 8 pm, right as I was putting Evan to sleep.
Things are back to normal today, although it is blistering hot outside today. But, at least we finally got some rain!!

The 2008 Beijing Olympics started of with a bang!! I have been watching as many events as I can and everyday, I'll make a post about the events I watched that day, starting with Day One, August 9.
Women's Preliminary Volleyball - Japan vs United States
The first event I watched was the first game for the US Women's volleyball team. It was a close game, but the US team took the win. They won 3 sets to Japan's 1 set, with an end result of 95 to 85. Very exciting game that my son enjoyed while eating french toast and eggs for breakfast. :-)
Women's Individual Sabre - JACOBSON Sada (USA) vs ZAGUNIS Mariel (USA)
Yes, that does say USA vs USA. This was the Gold Medal Match and it came down to 2 Americans. I don't really understand this sport much, but it was interesting to watch. Mariel Zagunis was able to defend her Gold Medal from Athens by winning this match.
Women's Preliminary Beach Volleyball - Walsh/May-Treanor (United States) vs Teru Saiki/Kusuhara (Japan)
During the Athens Olympics, this dynamic duo was unstoppable!! Since then, they have gone on to win 101 games in a row!! And, like those other games, these girls won this one as well!! They played on, despite the light rain and humid conditions. I look forward to these ladies winning gold again.
Men's 400m Individual Medley Final - Michael Phelps, Gold Medal
Michael Phelps is off to a good start, winning his first of (hopefully) 8 gold medals. During this race, he also set a new world record, 4:03:84. This was one of Michael's hardest races and he made it seem like a piece of cake. I can't wait for Michael's 7 other races and watching him win gold in all of them!!
Men's Qualifying Gymnastics
I didn't get to watch much of this event (unfortunately) because I was driving home from work when they started. From what I did see, the US Men's Gymnastics team is off to a great start! Always an exhilarating sport to watch, this year's US team is made up of all Olympic-newbies, but they all seemed like old pros.
Well, that's all I watched on Saturday. A fantastic start to what will be a phenomenal Summer Olympics! Keep checking back every evening for a new blog post about that day's event.
Go TEAM USA!!

In honor of the Olympics, why not have a sale? I'm currently running a sale in both my Etsy shops, August 8 - August 24. Click the links below to go directly to my "Olympic Sale" sections to find some great deals on everything from jewelry to greeting cards. I have a lot of new items I am working on right now and will start to list them next week. So, I need to start clearing out some merchandise. If you make a purchase from both of my shops, I will adjust the shipping and refund you the difference. Happy shopping!!
