I love the Olympic games. Last Summer's in London was wonderful. The last winter games in Vancouver were excellent (didn't hurt that Canada killed on the medals!!) I'm not sure if I prefer the Summer or Winter games. I love them all really. I do enjoy watching the figure skating. As a young child I loved it as well and loved to pretend that I was a figure skater. We had an open area at the back of our living room which was my "skating rink". I would put talcum powder on the floor to make it slippery and slide around. I never learned how to skate as ice rinks were few and far between in Manchester in those days (don't even know if we had one). But in my imagination I was a champion!
Go Canada!!! Ten medals already!!
Thank you for all the comments about my shoulder. I did see the Sports medicine specialist yesterday and after much deliberation, had a cortisone shot. It can take up to a week to feel any difference in pain, so we will just have to see. I am still able to do things around the house if I am careful. Vacuuming is harder and also ironing, but I do it slowly. I am not even able to drive Wendell's automatic transmission car, as it is still too painful. I will be glad when I can drive again as I feel very dependant on Wendell to get me places. He is so good about it though and doesn't mind.
