Over the past couple of weeks, Chris and I have developed a routine that is based off of the Olympics. We simply cannot get enough of the crazy events. We have planned our evenings around watching the events. The routine consists of working for 8+ hours, eating supper, either riding our bikes or working out on the elliptical and staying up way to late...and then it starts all over again.
Some of my favorite events throughout the Beijing Olympics include swimming, beach volleyball, men's 10m platform diving (I know David Boudia's father), gymnastics, basketball and track and field. I was also impressed by the opening ceremonies. I work with quite a few people from China and they have been so proud of it. It has been neat to talk to them about something that we have in common.
My company has been in the news quite bit lately. As most people know, the automotive sector has been hit hard recently because people are changing their buying habits because they are fed up with the cost of gas. This past week my company has decided to make a business decision to separate 600 salaried employees. This has been a difficult time and my heart goes out to the employees that have lost their job. My hope is that they will be optimistic and that they can find a position that fits their needs.
This weekend we are going to the lake to spend some time with my family. We usually go on vacation with them sometime throughout the year; however, we are saving all of our time for our trip to ETHIOPIA!
Colts football is back in season! We are super excited to go to the games again this year. The first pre-season game is Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. It should be a good time. We actually had the opportunity to tour the stadium last Saturday with some of our friends - shout out to Syd, Katie, Don, Liz, Anneliese and Emmeline. Chis and I have also been riding our bikes recently so we also had the opportunity to ride the monon for 18 miles. It was a nice ride.
No news on the adoption front. We continue to think about out little guys often. We are so glad that August is about over. We really don't want to wish our lives away, but we can't wait to hold him. We love him so much already!
