I'm so happy and proud that fellow Iowan, Shawn Johnson, won a gold medal tonight in the Beijing Olympics.  I loved watching Shawn and Nastia Liukin in these games.  It was nice to watch the two women rooting for each other.  I was really touched by Shawn's parents reaction to her victory.  I'm sure it was an overwhelming mix of joy and relief.  The sacrifice made by the Olympians and their families is hard to fathom.

Now that the swimming and gymnastics are over, perhaps I can get some of my life back!
