A Nice Weekend...
Life as a reformed Zookeeper. Now living a life as a working mother who dabbles in karate, scrapbooking, and Coors Light!
I have a little bit of money earmarked for a vacation. When I put it in my savings account, the intention was to take a family vacation. Of course, we've tried to take the kids different places over the past six months... all local. We have a membership to Conner Prairie and have gone a few times....they complained because they had to walk. We have a zoo membership...I think they did a little better with that. We went to a festival... they complained because they had to walk. We went to Chicago... they complained again.
....This is Gary, walking up to the ring. He won in the first round by TKO. I couldn't be more proud of him. He showed up and really made us proud by turning it on in the octagon. You would never know how humble and gentle-spirited he is if you saw him fight. But he is. He was as thankful for us to be there as we were happy to be there.
...they really have nothing to do with eachother, but I wanted to make note of Byers' current events.
...Am totally reminded of the Barenaked Ladies song that came out in about 1998.... At about 8 o'clock, all I wanted to do was to crawl in bed and go to sleep! I'd had a great workout that day, and I was dog-ass tired. Alas, the bed needed to be made and the laundry folded before I could go to sleep. Around ten o'clock, I'd folded most (who the hell wants to fold the whites and sheets so late at night anyway) and Aaron helped me make our bed (we have a super-thick mattress and even after ten years, we've yet to find a bottom sheet that actually fits the stupid thing). I finally crawl into bed (nothing like crawling into a freshly made bed!). And then spend the rest of the night tossing and turning. No workout for me this morning...
....I had a fantastic weekend. Friday night, I went to sparring class and hung out at home with the kids. Later in the evening, my friend Beth and her friend Suzanne came to my house to spend the night. They live north of Fort Wayne. And they wanted to go to a hot air balloon launch at the state fairgrounds, which started before 7. So I told them they could crash at my house. It was fun to catch up and not have to hurry.
...since the past few years have been mostly surrounding my karate lifestyle and whatever whim of fitness I've chosen, I've started a new blog. So I will still periodically write here... for those two of you still reading me... and I will post, probably more frequently, here.
