What a week!!!
Last Friday was a monumental one for many. Even me.
I've been PSYCHED. Both literally, and...well... literally.
my psych consult. (Da-da-da!!!)
It went brilliantly! The dude was casual, easy-going, relatable, & we discovered we attend the same church (an awesome one, I might add)! It felt more like we carried on a casual, "getting-to-know-you" conversation, which wasn't one sided. Then he took a detailed family tree & went over a general checklist of questions. Looking for support system issues, I suppose. I didn't have to sit on a smarmy couch & tell my deepest, darkest secrets... of which I don't truly have any (that he knows of... Ha!).
But seriously, my issues with food & weight have nothing to do with any repressed issues. I'm fat because I like food. Apparently more than I like myself. That's about to change!!!
But when Canada wins a medal, especially a gold, well... my neighbours can probably hear the hooting & hollering and my facebook & twitter accounts light up like a Vegas show!
And there isn't a sport in the Winter Os I don't LOVE watching. Seriously.
I'll give it to NBC, & specifically Tom Brokaw, though. The short piece of journalism that aired just prior to the start of the Opening Ceremonies was poignant & reverent to introduce Canada to a US audience, & the sportscasters have been very gracious about the coverage of Canadian culture & history. As a dislocated Canuck, I'm very appreciative & overjoyed that other nations are getting to witness the beauty & diversity of the land that I love!
Here's that clip by Tom Brokaw:
