Happy Thorsday, little friday and Thankful Thursday. Like lots of households around the globe, the Olympics are on at our house almost around the clock. It’s what I leave on for the fur-girls when we go to work, and while the Knight claims not to watch sports, he’s suddenly an Olympic medal-counter, and an expert on swimming, volleyball and more.
However, before I talk about our sports of choice, I’d be remiss if I failed to note that Sissy is so worked up this week she composed her own post. I’ve had busy weeks before, but for some reason, she’s knotted up over my meeting schedule this week. Crazy dog…
So, what sports would we compete in?
Well, the humans are easy. The Knight is a remarkable marksman, and a natural in the weight room, so we’ll go with shooting, weightlifting… or table tennis. He’s evil with a paddle and I refuse to play against him.
I played tennis and basketball and both sprinted and ran cross country in school, but these days, race walking is about all I could really do.
But the furgirls are another story.
Sissy would like to do boxing or wrestling. Sure, she logs almost as many miles as I do in a week, but that’s just her training program.
Gretchen would like to do handball and hurdles, and says she’d like to do racewalking with me too.
I always get interesting in fencing during the Olympics too. What are your favorite sports to watch? To play?
Thankful… I know you’re probably tired of hearing it, but I am ever-thankful for the remarkably talented, inspiring women in the League. We had our new member interest social last night, and every single woman I spoke with was awesome! It’s also pure delight to work with highly competent women who collaborate and support each other. I know the whole year isn’t going to flow smoothly, so I truly treasure these moments where I am proud of our leaders and inspired by their passion and ideas…
I’m also thankful for my husband and the other very supportive significant others in our leaders’ lives. One friend’s husband stopped by last night and was sweet enough to share some Prosecco with me. I happen to know he brews his own beer, but he was a good sport and had bubbly with us! When I finally got home, the Knight had a fabulous salad waiting for me…
What are you grateful for today?
