An Olympic fog

Ok I haven't posted since the day before the Olympic games started. Where have I been, well between all the activities I have taken part here living at the host city and simply watching the games as they unfolded I haven't accomplished anything, seriously not a thing, it's as though the world stopped for 17 days and I feel like I don't know what to do with myself tomorrow :)

I plan on putting a post together hopefully tomorrow with all the pics and stories but before that I just have to say I have never been so proud to be a Vancouverite and a Canadian. These games truly pulled this nation together and shouted out our pride to the world like nothing else has done before! Way to go Canada.

Oh and to prove the point that we are a gracious country (getting a little tired of that stereotype myself but as shown at the closing ceremonies it can be made to be funny) congrats to the USA who did own the podium (just not as many gold medals as Canada, oops how rude and un-Canadian of me, lol). No seriously congrats to all the athletes from around the world for whom without their dedication to sport there would be no games!

The most memorable 17 days of my life for sure!!!!!
