Monday Mayhem – We interrupt your productivity for…


I got so little done this weekend. Hard to keep your mind in the story when you’re busy yelling at the television. I always forget how compelling the Olympics are.  Aside from the usual suspects – swigging, gymnastics, volleyball – find myself watching sports I never imagined enjoying. Fencing, Cycling road races. Archery. And the new love of my life…women’s rugby sevens.


Hubby didn’t understand why I was so stoked about it. I’ve watched rugby before. I adore American football, so rugby isn’t a stretch for me. I know how brutal the game is. I’m a big fan of Kat Latham’s London Legends rugby romances. I’ve just never seen women going at it so hard, so fast, and so strong. These women kick ass, and I am a fan!

In the meantime, I’m chipping away at my daily word count here and there. I’ve set a new goal that started August 1 – With 153 days left in the year, I’ve committed to writing a minimum 500 words per day for 150 of those days. A manageable goal, I think.

Oh, and rumor has it there will be a nifty announcement coming soon.

What’s keeping you entertained this week?

  1. I’m with you! The Olympics have completely taken over my life, as they always do, but I’m sticking to my goals and writing as much as I can every day. This week, I’ll hopefully be buying my first ever new car, getting in a workout with my Rideau crew, hosting Dad on his first solo trip to Ottawa, playing beach volleyball, and eating more Filipino food, which is my new favourite thing. Happy Monday! 🙂

  2. Seems we are all TeamOlympics! The whole weekend was spend watching the different sport will occasional chores or errands thrown in for good measure.

  3. I wish the Olympics could distract me from the continuing despair at my work. I know that I’m usually Glass Half-Full Girl, but things are just bad. Bad, bad, bad. Did I mention it’s bad? Maybe I’ll try watching rugby. Or drinking more wine.
