Dedicated follower of the black line
Follow swimming! I'm also trying to sell my house, which is taking up TONS of time.
Not everyone cares - but this summer is the World Cup - and for the first time in Africa.
It is a great sporting event - full of drama, heroics - and like skating - has a fair share of controversy.
I believe this is the most watched sporting event in the world - even if it is never such a big deal in North America.

Catch up on events I didn't have time to watch while they were in progress (e.g., Euros)
Soccer this summer.
Fun tidbit: Italia (Carolina) claimed the world cup champion by defeating every single team except one: the U.S.
And wavin' flag, the theme song for the world cup this year, is ridiculously catchy.
me too. French Open going to be good.

Finish cleaning up the mess in my cellar caused by being flooded to a depth of 3 and one half feet in the recent floods in CT
Do some reading.
Do some sailing.
Try to make it to Lake Placid International Dance Competition to see what the skaters are coming up with to compete under these crazy new rules that the ISU is supposed to pass in June (I don't know how the kids will get ready that fast, I really don't)
Funny you say that. I recorded Olympic Games in VCR and when I put FIGURE SKATING only into DVD, I shrunk 8 hr tape into 2 hr!

Thank you GS and all the posters for talking about figure skating all the time even if I don't agree with you all the time !!!
I'm eating, sleeping, then sleeping and eating
Spending too much time at the arena
Go to the arena, watch my kids skate; look at photo galleries of last year with my DD to help design a new skating costume; watch youtube and other skating videos with DS and DD to show them really neat spins and stuff to add into their programs ... pay the coaches bills and all of the other costs associated with being a skating parent ... recognize that summer doesn't mean VACATION it means MORE TIME TO TRAIN AND SKATE ... sigh.
