Productivity Declines

I absolutely LOVE the Olympics. But they do result in a decline in my productivity. I have no desire to do anything else but watch the games. I really do get so emotionally involved with them. I get so worked up when the races are close- I am screaming and cheering, my heart still racing after the races are over. I have shed tears several times during the montages of the athletes and the struggle that they have gone through: their triumphs and disappointments. I was especially touched by the Chinese skating couple who performed first in the short program. The have been partners for years and he ruptured his Achilles tendon and they had to take a break. But, he recovered and they got married and wanted to come back and perform one more time for the elusive gold medal. They were first and absolutely gave the performance of their lifetime. It was absolutely flawless- perfectly in sync with each other- which deeply touched me because it reflected the intensity of their love. What a perfect story for Valentines. I am so looking forward to the next few weeks!!
