I've spent a little time this morning watching the NBC broadcast that my husband so kindly DVR'd for me while I was at nationals! It's so amazing to watch it and think, I was there! I'm still so excited to have gone, the experience of meeting the skaters, seeing live programs, and meeting my fellow fans is something I will never forget! I, too, was able to attend the FOFS breakfast (thanks, lovesdance...so much!) and it was special. The skating moms panel was great, two comments that stand out for me was Charlie's mom saying that at some point you step back and let them be adults and make their own decisions and you just always be there for support as it should be. Adam Rippon's mom also said that you don't try to be their friend, you always be their mom...the mom they can go to for support and unconditional love no matter what. Great stuff there! Thanks again to TaBfan and lovesdance for helping me navigate my first nationals! And literaryfreak, you were a great roomie! It was great meeting you, DebbieS, and I wish I could have personally met all the other FSUers who were there, too! An experience I won't forget...now back to watching on tv and computer! Which is still a good thing... One more thing...meeting the skating parents that I had the incredible luck to experience...the Whites, the Davis', the Zuerleins, and the Chocks...all so kind and appreciative of our fan support for their kids. They sure made me feel special. Oh, I almost forgot I met Gramps! He was so sweet, handing out little picture cards he made for Emily and Evan. I just wanted to hug everyone! Trying my hardest now to get back in the real world! Happily I didn't have to work today, one more day to recuperate.
