Happy Monday, indeed.

While we were unpacking over the last couple of days, we kept the TV on to the Olympics for background noise and the occasional distraction. If you watched at all this weekend, you know the games opened with plenty of swimming. As you can tell from the above, it was extremely painful to watch.

So painful.

So, so….so…

What were we talking about again? Oh right, the Olympics. And swimmers.

Did you watch any of the events this weekend? Yesterday we caught the women’s gymnastics qualifying round. Balance beam and uneven bars always make me so nervous (mostly because I imagine falling flat on my face in each). Vault too — running at a giant leather hurdle and then launching myself at it. No thank you.

Do you guys remember that movie Stick It from several years ago? I actually saw it in theatres. Total guilty pleasure flick. Highly recommended if you like watching gymnastics, and don’t mind a few (okay, several) cringe-worthy lines.

Did you actually read anything I just wrote? No? That’s okay. Happy Monday.

    I’m so bummed to not have caught ANY Olympic coverage – this India trip + awful televising of events = one unhappy Hitha.

    And yes, swimmers. Ohhhhh, swimmers….

    What a sight to see on a Monday morning… I watched the Olympics all weekend- except for the times I had my eyes closed while watching gymnastics. I get nervous, too! I hope your move went well!

    Obsessed with these men! I was pretty devastated about the relay last night and almost started tearing up when Jordyn Weiber didn’t make it to the all around. I’m such a wimp.

    Glad the move went well (?). Let’s get together soon.

    Definitely just scrolled through to look at all the pictures, scrolled through the pictures one more time, then went back to read your actual words! ;)

    I was watching the Olympics all weekend (I’m a huge Olympics fan) and now I just want to get home and catch up on any events that I missed today while I was at work!

    I too will admit to seeing Stick It in the theatre, with my now husband, who was hoping it was a Bring it On 2 of sorts and that he could enjoy the eye candy. Apparently it was not to his liking. But I do remember not being disappointed by that movie. I`ve always loved watching gymnastics…a testament to the abilities of the human body and all that jazz…
