New and Improved! Now With 50% Less Swearing!

Things are much improved on the soreness front, I barely even cussed when I sat down on the toilet this morning; it was more shitfuckdamn than SHITFUCKDAMN! So, my body is either becoming immune to the pain or my spirit to fight it is becoming weaker.

For the record, I’m betting on the latter of the two.

Speaking of spirit; our local Homecoming football game is tonight. As part of the festivities, there will be a parade on Main Street later this afternoon and The Girl is marching in it with the band.

To show off her awesome School Spirit, she requested that I rise before dawn to paint her face in the school colors; a request to which I acquiesced, not because I am easy but because I was frankly too sore and weak to argue. It was worth the effort because, I have to admit, she looked adorable when she left the house; now, here’s hoping the paintjob holds up throughout the day so I can get some good pictures of her at the parade.

On the same topic, The Man-Cub’s scout troop is hosting a tailgate party before the game and we plan to attend. Unfortunately, Hugh is working for the Police department and won’t be able to take the Cub to the game, itself. I would do it but, I hate football have a lot to do before we leave for the lake tomorrow, things that include decorating the child’s birthday cake and packing so, with the exception of The Girl, who has to play the school song with the band during the halftime show; our family will miss the game. The Cub doesn’t seem too broken up by that, his desire to lick the frosting bowl overriding his desire to watch boys tackle each other on the playing field.

As it should be.

Plus, with him around to lick the bowl, I am less likely to do so.

Oh, who am I kidding? I don’t have half the energy required to move my tongue aggressively around a batter bowl.


So, that’s how this whole diet and exercise thing works.


  1. LOL. I appreciate the last comment the best!

  2. You know it's bad when you are too sore to eat! Hang in there!
