We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Olympic Fever

2014 Olympics in Sochi (Mother Russia) came with protests, oppression, and struggles. Vladimir Putin, the leader of Russia, was criticized for his politics(anti gay laws plus the killing of the native peoples upon which lands the games are being played) and the country was mocked for some goof ups (lights out, water issues), but the athletes were able to focus enough to win some amazing victories.  We watched a few of the huge snowboarding competitions and a few ice skaters.

In our house, we had a major dose of John William's Olympic music, and even created some Olympic events. The painters tape, in fact, is still gracing the living room's floor, but since there's no pressing need to remove it, it remains.
