With Glowing Hearts...

The Olympics is over. I feel sort of lost...
The television was on for 17 straight days, from the poignantly Canadian opening ceremonies through to the final gold medal delivered by Sidney Crosby.
Every emotional chord was hit, from frustration to elation, and I probably cried at least once per day. Yes... the Tim Horton's commercial got me every time.
And does anyone know the name of the song in the Coke commerical? The hockey-themed one with the line "... let everybody know who's game they're playing" cause it's stuck in my head.
Oh - and I finally understand the line from our national anthem "with glowing hearts". It stopped being just words and became something real.

It was such fun meeting new Twitter friends during the games! Don't think I watched one event alone :)


Back to writing!
Which I've done little of.
I'm putting the finishing polish on my novel today and will send it out to my agent (I still squee inside when I type that word). Fingers crossed that she'll know what to do with it from there.

And how fitting that the hero of the book is a hockey player.

I probably didn't watch the Olympics as much as some...but I definitely caught my share of AMAZING moments. And the hockey game at the end? Well...let's just say I don't think I've ever teared up at our national anthem before. So, yeah...that "glowing hearts" thing? Definitely.

It will be a moment I'm sure my kids will remember for years to come.

Still squeeing for you, my friend, when you type "agent!" :-D Yes, very cool that your hero is a hockey player, and I'll be keeping all my appendages crossed for you!

Nikki - My kids will remember it as the day their parents screamed at the television and had total melt-downs upon Sidney's winning goal.

TL - thanks for your crossed appendages :)

To the other person who responded. Sorry - I don't understand what you said, but I'm assuming it translated to GO CANADA!!! :)

Wylie - my dog thought we'd all gone stark raving mad when we all screamed with elation at Sidney's goal. Not sure she's over that, yet.

I totally love that Tim Horton's commercial, the one where they're from all the Tim's across Canada. Just love it.

If I didn't watch you kept threatening to send the Mounties after me. LOL!

It was an AMAZING game which I watchd through my fingers when the US tied it and forced it into overtime.

We bought the highlights DVD.

AND what sucks, well not sucks I'm just jealous. Is my brother called me to tell me he has 2 Team Canada jersey's and he's friends with a guy who is friends with Corey Perry who is going to get Crosby to sign my brother's jersey and NO he's not getting his big sister one. Jerk. ;-)
