2020 Olympic schedule

Olympic schedule

The above linked article talks about the schedule for the 2020 Olympics. Everything is listed in Eastern Time.

The article shows the whole schedule, but below are the events I’m considering watching.

Because there are so many events, and the time difference is a challenge, I have a feeling I won’t be watching as many as I think I will be. I always love the swimming, of course. Diving and gymnastics are a close second. The speed walking is always funny, since they always look like they are desperately looking for a restroom.

Volleyball and beach volleyball are always fun, and I have learned to enjoy indoor cycling. I am interested in learning about rugby. Artistic swimming sounds fun, too.

This is also the first year that Dad won’t be able to watch them with me, so there are some events that I can’t watch, because he’s not here to explain them to me. It will be a challenge anyway, since I’ll have no one to discuss them with this year.

I will be missing sleep since a lot of the events I want to watch will be in the middle of the night. At least Opening Ceremonies will be at 4am my time. How convenient.

Winterfest 2019

The amusement park near us has a winter themed event every year. They light up the trees and poles and have photo op places all along the walkway. They have shows and winter themed characters walking around greeting the children. My sister and I took her children during Christmas week.

We went to dinner first at a Thai place. It was delicious. The kids were reasonably well behaved. The man at the next table was not. Why is it that the more boring the story, the louder the volume? He had a ton of stories. Each one more boring than the previous one.

We moved on to the park itself. It was beautiful, but cold. The lines for the rides were long and it was dark so we could see the lights better. We informed the kids that there would be no riding rides that night. They were happy to run around.

We did see a show that the kids sat through. They mostly enjoyed it. I enjoyed being inside where it was warmer.

After several rounds of photo taking, we headed home. I was home way past bedtime, but it was a fun outing. Hopefully we can do it again next year.
