p90x, Locks Of Love....


So we've been busy the past few days/weeks/months.... and I know that I'm a very neglectful blogger. *grins* I've had a goofy first week of P90X. I started last Sunday, took Wednesday off, did three hours of working out (split into two one and a half hour stretches) on Thursday, took Saturday off, and did Kenpo X today while I should have been resting. I'm now on the schedule that everyone else would be on (most people seem to start on Mondays, it seems). I already feel more tone. I know that might seem crazy...but it's true. And I'm anxious to see if I can do a better job this next week on getting through the workouts. So far, so good...


Funny things that have happened this week..... Aaron was pulled over for crossing the white line. I think that the premise of this is a bit stupid... who hasn't bailed out to the right and driven for a bit on the shoulder when traffic is backed up and they're turning right? Anyway, he gets stopped. And lets me know that I NEED to sign the van's registration.... I question this, as the van's listed in BOTH of our names... Did he not sign it? When he says it's in my name only, I inform him that he gave the cop the WRONG registration. Kudos to the WPD for not catching that one... He did only get a warning, so I'll refrain from writing a letter.




Yesterday, we had a marathon day (hence the lack of a workout)... I got up at 6:30 to get the twins ready to go with me to the Carmel's Farmer's Market to work the Kiwanis breakfast brat stand. The Kiwanis sponsor our Boy Scout Troop so I feel compelled to give of my time. The money raised for the brats goes to things like scholarships (some for Westfield students as well as Carmel students) and Riley Children's Hospital. The last one really needs no explanation, eh? *winks* So after our two hour shift, we beat a path home, got ready, took Griffin to our friends' house, and went to a bridal shower. We eat, drink, and are merry. I go, pick up Griffin and then take the twins home to wrap a present and are just in time to get to a birthday party for one of Griffin's best friends. While they're at the party, I go to Westfield Middle School to witness my very first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament, the Hoosier Open. I got to see my friend Josh roll.... he won the first one I saw, and lost the second. I'm so proud of him and so very happy that I got to see him compete! After that, the night calmed down, but we had Melissa, Brett, and Gavin over for some pizza and late-night laughter.

Today, Erin decided it was time to cut her hair. We've been growing it out for the last two years, and a few months ago, we talked about donating it to Locks of Love. Today was the day, and the pictures really need no explanation.

Dang you are busy! I forgive you for not telling me I could go get brats for breakfast. really? Brats for breakfast and I don't have to do the cooking? It sounds like a dream come true. But my ass is fat enough.
