Day 16 – No Such Thing as Catching Up on Lost Sleep

That’s the dilema I’m in right now. I slept 3 hours last night, after a miserable bus ride in the rain and a wake up call at 6am. And It’s now 2:30 am and I’m righting this blog (the second to last Olympic one!) in an attempt to catch up with my posts. I know that there is no way to catch up on the sleep I have lost, which is very unfortunate since I have a 6am bus to catch and it’s now 2:45 am. So in attempt to get to bed and salvage the evening, here is my day in a sentence: No sleep, sitting in slush shooting Men’s slalom, catnap and laundry, sushi and beer with the boys, and packing to go the first and final bus from Whistler into Vancouver. One last ride into town, one big game USA v Canada. It’s going to be HUGE…goodnight.
