Very Sad

This is the first time in my entire life that I will not be watching the Olympics. 

I got rid of cable/satellite two years ago and honestly have not missed it one bit.  Until this week.  Yes, I have places I am extremely welcome to go and watch.  I love my friends and their overwhelming generosity.  But it’s just not the same.

So instead of going and enjoying their hospitality while I sit there and fight tears I am going to stay home and try to pretend I’m not missing the opening ceremonies tonight.  I know.  Damn stubborn of me but it’s not really something I can adequately explain.

NBC is streaming everything online but without a subscription to a cable or satellite network you are denied access.  If I had that, I wouldn’t need to watch online, now would I?  I don’t like them at all right now.

As much as I love the Olympics and as sad as I am, I’m just not willing to do a two year contract to watch TV for two weeks.  I just can’t do it.

Hope your weekend is better than mine.
