I watched the official start to the London Olympics last night until 3am!!! With the time difference it meant that the opening ceremony didn’t start here in Greece until 11pm and it lasted four hours so it was not over until 3am…..and I of course felt obligated to watch it all despite how tired I was.
I actually missed the start of it, that had Kenneth Brannaugh in it and what looked like an explanation of the pilgrimage and history or something. I was on the phone and so kept peeking in to see but I couldn’t quite figure it out.
But I only missed a little bit so then I was in it for the long haul….with my one eye open at the end, watching the 200 something countries enter with all their athletes that took ages, determined to stay awake though until the end. Nothing some late night snacks couldn’t fix!!
Of course it was supposed to be a family event but both of my parents fell asleep before the ceremony even started! We are in crazy moving and packing mode here so they are both exhausted poor things. My mum went up to wait until it started and fell asleep and my dad sat near me but was out and then kept waking up now and then but immediately dropping off again!!
It felt a little sad actually as the Olympics were going to be a family event. I worked hard to get some tickets for us all to at least be a part of it all together and now I am not sure any of us will get to see anything now live.
Granted the tickets Stuart and I got in the second round were not great – handball and hockey. But I picked those as they are events that are in the Olympic village and were cheap and were available, and so we could at least go in and see everything that you need a ticket to see. But Stuart is back in NYC so he won’t see them. And my mum and I will probably extend our flights to be in Greece a little longer than this Monday – which is when we have booked to fly back to the UK – but we have to be out of the house by tomorrow which we could not anticipate and we are not ready and we just can’t leave on Monday. So tomorrow I will have to change our flights.
Also now there’s talk of whether I should even be going while pregnant with all the crowds and the talk of security issues and that it will be hot and….I would have still liked to go though, but hmmmm….
Regardless, I do have to get back to London soon as my deadline to not fly approaches, plus I just feel, yes in denial, and not in reality, but very….what’s the word…not ready…UNPREPARED…that’s the word!!!!! Seriously. I have no clue what’s going on, but also what hospital, what doctor, what is going on with me and the NHS. Nothing!!! So I can’t extend too long.
Will have to figure out travel plans tomorrow amid the move!

Happy July everybody!!
I can’t believe it is July 1st….that is crazy!!
– London Olympics are soon!
– summer is here!
– only 11 days until I leave!!!! Now that is CRAZY!!!!
I had a great day yesterday at my baby shower – but unfortunately today I am not feeling so great 😦
I don’t know why – could be the heat, the severe crappo sleep I had last night or the pile up of severe crappy sleeps I’ve had for a long long time really, being on my feet all day yesterday – although I’m always on my feet and busy so maybe that is piling up too, the amount of upside down/out of order/topsy turvy random foods I ate yesterday – I remember going back and forwards between sweet and then back to bbq food! One minute I was eating a burger, then a piece of amazing BLUE velvet cake (Thank you Amy!!!!) back to ribs, to brownie bites, to steak and so forth! So could have been that.
Or it could just be a combination of all of the above.
I don’t know – once I got back home after doing things this morning/afternoon I had to seriously take it easy and lie down.
I hope it goes away by tomorrow as I have another majorly crammed day!
I know, I know – I need to take it easy…hopefully soon.
Right now I am just trying to get through the next 11 days and get on that 10.55pm plane to London next Wednesday as my to-do list is still seriously long and there is just soooo much to do!!
