- Anybody out there still working on the 100 pushup challenge? I did my sets this morning – not sure I’m feeling significantly stronger at this point. Guess I am though – the first two sets came easier today than they did last week, but the last set taxed me so much that I had to break it into two sets – one of 10, one of six. So this morning I did 14+14+10+10+16=64 pushups! Will I really be able to do 100 consecutive pushups in the next month? Will you? Only time will tell!
- My best friend from high school contacted me recently and we spoke on the phone last night for almost an hour, catching up. It’s funny how my mind has held on to an “ideal” of how our conversation would go if we ever talked again. (We haven’t spoken in 8, maybe 9 years – I think she was upset I got married, not really sure. ) Anyhoo, the conversation in reality was nowhere near as …grand and dramatic as I thought it would be. I guess catch up with someone who knew me best 20 years ago isn’t as big a deal as I would’ve imagined. Oh well. I’m sure we’ll stay in touch, though there’s only so much reminiscing about doing the Roger Rabbit during an all school assembly or my gay – yes, gay – Sadie Hawkin’s date that I can handle.
- My child would love to hold on to every toy she’s ever had the pleasure of owning. As a matter of fact, she still has a rattle from her days as a wee one in her possession. The girl doesn’t like to get rid of anything. I, however, do. I spent a good portion of this weekend throwing away those toys which have been played with until they fell apart and putting those she’s outgrown in the Goodwill bag. I’ve got to go through her closet this weekend and do the same with her clothes. Some will go to Goodwill, others to a lady I know from Africa who ships warm-weather clothes home to her village once or twice a year, and a few select goodies will go to my friend who has a daughter a few years younger than Lovegirl.
Anything you’re holding on to?
