Pics of the BOBsled!

Looking back on a great day. The sights and sounds of the bobsled event. So funny to watch everyone trying to take a
picture of something going 90 MPH.
Thats not easy. The guy in orange was from the homeland. LOL! He said(in dutch) to Bill that two of his sons are on the Dutch team and that one
was the driver. And my kids think I'M embarrassing! Anyway back to reality now and yes it bites.
Thanks for stopping by!

We interrupt Olympic fun...

I am recovering from food poisoning. Yeah, thats got to be what it was. Tuesday night I had two tacos at Jack in the box and Wednesday I was in bed all day! Sicker than a dog! I know , I know TACOS at Jack in the box? Its like its self inflicted! Tonight I just started to eat again. My poor hubby..It's his first week home. Never again. The tacos. Never again! Sorry for the bad press jack in the box:( But it had to be said! Tomorrow more pics of the Olympics!

It was a beautiful day for an Olympic event!

Wow! What a whirl-wind day. Starting at 7 am. Jeff and Kathi hosted this Whistler getaway. They own a condo on Blackcomb and made this all possible. We are so grateful to them! Upon arrival we darted to the village in search of souvenirs. Janice NEEDED the red mittens. You had to wait in line to get in the store (see pic of us talking to some interesting Canadians). Then we saw Simon Ammann(Swedish skier) being interviewed and so we decided to catch a glimpse of his DOUBLE GOLD! Hana took the pic of him holding his metals up. Hana also joined a group of Swedes in a song. Then we enjoyed some international cuisine at Mcdonalds. When we got to the gondola we realized our event was delayed. Oh well more starbucks and shopping:) It was sad to see the memorial for the luger who lost his life doing what he loved. This is part one of two...Tomorrow I will post the bobsled event!! TOO MUCH FUN!

The 411 after you've dialed 911.

"I'm in a car accident" Thats what I remember thinking during those seconds. Yesterday I was busted doing something I've been doing for years. Driving around in my van with no makeup on and improperly dressed. I was going to pilates and I was rear-ended driving in the driveway on the Guide. Here is some vital information about being in a accident in a small town. Bad news travels fast! I kinda thought of this and instantly called Bill who is out of town and I know would freak out. But in the age of texting, twittering and facebooking you need to tell your peeps you are ok instantly! My poor Levi got a text and bolted from school to my rescue. He said "mom you scared me!" So the first thing you need to remember is -drive around in your car prepared to see everyone you know. The second thing-tell your peeps instantly! And the third is you may feel like crap the next day and you will spend the entire day on the phone to insurance adjusters, caring friends(mainly my out of town hubby:), rental car companies and towing companies. BUT this is small stuff because everyone involved is going to be OK! Praise the Lord. I know pictures would have made this post much more interesting but the Golden Chariot(a name my snapsister gave my van) is not looking so good:( *** just got the call from the adjuster... she's a total loss.

It's a vicious cycle...

worry, panic, pray, peace and comfort. repeat. That, in a nutshell, is the week that was. My snapsister's baby was diagnosed with a brain tumor on monday. At first I thought that this is beyond anything she or anyone can handle. But guess what? God can. He holds us up when we can't stand. We see Him in our friends as they tackle this season in their life. So I will try to worry(less), panic(never) pray(always) and basque in His peace and comfort. Will you pray with me?
****check out Jack's blog for updates.
