Homer's Travels: Diversions And Distractions

Diversions And Distractions

I mentioned in my last post that I would probably start posting about our vacation in a week or two but I overlooked some diversions and distractions that may sideline the trip posts for a while.

The first are the Olympics.  I am not a sports fan but every two years when the Olympics are on I find myself captivated by the competition.  The fact that I've spent some of yesterday and today watching Women's and Men's futball may be a good indication that I will be glued to the tube for the next two weeks.  It may also be in indication that I'm still a bit jet lagged.  One more incentive for me to watch is archery.  In Bhutan we took some time watching the country's national sport, archery, and I think I will have to watch that when it comes on.

The second distraction will be a new dog.  Starting next week we are going to start to look for a dog.  We'll be checking out the Humane Society and a few Rescue organizations in the area.  I'm sure this will generate a post or two over the next few weeks.

I'm not sure how much of a delay there will be.  I've started going through the pictures but I had a huge bout with jet lag yesterday.  Jet lag teamed up with allergies and a caffeine withdrawal to really throw me through a loop.  I was totally exhausted last night.  Hopefully I will be totally detoxed and in sync by the weekend ... in time to get engrossed in the Olympic Games ... so I can restart sifting through all the pictures.  Once that's done I will consider drafting some trip posts.

Until then GO TEAM USA!


  1. I love the Olympics! I am not a sports watcher most of my life but when it comes to the Olympics I watch it all.
    Two weeks disappear in a blink :)

    1. JaG: I watched more of the Olympics this year than any previous year. I'm like you ... not much of a sports fan but I am an Olympic fanatic.
