What Do We Do With Our Summers When We Don't Have Olympic Games To Watch. I Vote For Olympics Every Year

I'm not sure what I will do when I can't wake up and plan my day around Olympic events. The women's volleyball team loss today to Serbia did a number on me, as did the false starts in several track events (eliminating the relay runners) and the almost disqualification of the U.S. Women runners after a poorly executed baton hand off.

The sports cuts into the day, and wastes time before we can run another corn hole tournament in the backyard (and too bad we didn't introduced a badminton tournament..............yet). That time is coming because that's another way to compete with the boys.

We managed to get a Chubby's round in with dad, and even shot some pool where Edem and I rocked the worlds of Rhiannon, Abu, and Lossine. Too bad they only had the techno version of Riptide by Vance Joy, our summer song 2016. It was good enough, but it would have been better to have the original.

And Paulie is gone from Big Brother. We knew that was coming, and the vicious fan in me wish he had the round trip ticket just to keep things fun. Nope. Not this time. Bye Bye. Now we await the new Head of Household. Big week to see what big moves happen next.

Ah, man. It's already Friday and today we welcome Sean, Jacob, and Dixie to the Amalfi Drive mix. Although the sun will be out and fully heating the outdoors, I'm hoping to get some writing done indoors in preparation of big meetings next week.

Of course, the Olympics will be my distraction as I take a break from the University life for a week (sort of). TGIF, as always.
