The Olympics officially kicked off tonight and the project I'm here working on kicked off yesterday. To say it has been busy would be an understatement. I've been on the job for nearly 14 hours and am officially running on steam. But I'm at the Olympics, and tonight I got a taste of the energy that is electrifying Vancouver. I was out picking up event tickets and got caught in the street closures surrounding Vancouver's BC Place where opening ceremonies were taking place. I was forced to walk for nearly an hour to get back to a place where cabs could be found, and on this walk I stumbled upon multiple viewing parties and locations, the biggest being projected on the side of a building with hundreds upon hundreds of people gathered to watch. It must be something to be here as a spectator. It's truly incredible.
You can finally see what I'm working on by visiting thankyoumom.com and can see the ad here. It's a really special program that has already touched a lot of people. It's something I'm very proud to be part of.
I missed training yesterday and I missed it today. I'm disappointed, but know I couldn't make it work. Hopefully there will be days where I can.
