facebook fragments: 5/31/14 – 6/13/14 (fitness milestones, falling curls, FavoriteSon’s birthday & Magic Kingdom)

I must admit, I was secretly hoping my personal trainer would forget our appointment today, but now that it’s over, I feel MUCH better having made it through. Today’s milestones include two one minute wall squats, the first while doing 23 bicep curls with 10lb dumbbells and the second while doing 22 hammer curls holding 12 lb dumbbells and three sets of 12 push-ups with two 2 minute forearm plank sandwiched in between the push-ups. Did the first 6 push ups wearing a 12 lb weight vest. (what a difference THAT made!)

It had been a week and a day since I worked out last, with two 12-14 hour Magic Kingdom days, a four day road trip to Atlanta, and the first day of “tech week” for Pinkgirl’s show opening tomorrow night, so those 8 days weren’t exactly sedentary. Even so, it felt like my body forgot how to work out. So glad I didn’t wimp out today. Wanna feel good about having worked out? Try one of these for however long you can…5 seconds, 10 seconds, 15 seconds… and let me know how you did so I can give you a virtual high five! ‪#‎GoodStewardofthisBody‬ ‪#‎fightthefrump‬

After 6 months away, I’ll be back in the recording studio Friday night. Recording my interpretation of “Keep Making Me” by Sidewalk Prophets. Thinking about recording it in the original “guy” key. Feels too pretty singing it like a girl.

Showed this to PinkGirl tonight.
Me: “You know what the conversation is about?”
PinkGirl, shaking head no.
Me: “premarital sex.”
PinkGirl: “To tell them not to have it?”
Me: “nope. To talk about what the kid should do if they are having sex or are thinking about having sex.”
(silence and disgusted upper lip sneer face from PinkGirl)
Me: “What would you say to them if they wanted to talk to you about that?”
PinkGirl, getting as riled up about it as I expected: “I’m. THIRT. TEEN!”
(rant continued and concluded with an impassioned, old fashioned Southern Baptist revival preaching voice): “You need JAESUS!”

I’m done asking God why I scheduled this. Now I’m asking Him “What now?” ‪#‎recording‬

I usually drink half caf, half decaf coffee. We’re out of decaf. I’m completely good with that right now. The last 10 days have been PACKED. ‪#‎runningonautopilot‬

Today’s 2pm matinee of PinkGirl’s latest show is your last chance to see these curls for a looooong time. After a week of rolling her hair EVERY night, I need a break! We’ve gotten home between 10:30pm and midnight every night and they take at least an hour to roll AFTER washing and drying her hair first. Then, the rollers need to stay in overnight, sometimes all day to get them to “stick.” If we want them to stay for more than 15 minutes after we take them out, she canNOT got outside in this humidity. We can’t even take them out at home and drive to the theater before they fall. She has to travel to the theater and then take them out after we get there. You know what I have to type now: ‪#‎ilovemydaughter‬.

216,000+ miles on my Honda van. It’s in the shop. Check engine light. Praying it’s cheap and easy. ‪#‎ihatecarpayments‬

216,000 miles & counting. We fixed the van. Quote was $839.00, ready tomorrow. It’s ready now & only cost $564. Someone once told me (24 years ago) that if you spend $1200 or less per year on a vehicle, you’re doing good. ‪#‎ihatecarpayments‬

Prayer Warrior Friends, My MIL is back in the hospital after spending all night in the ER. (She got out of the hospital Sunday afternoon a week ago after she had surgery to insert a feeding tube.) From SIL: “She tried a little beef broth – big mistake. Dehydrated and with nausea that no medicine will touch. Better this morning but we’ll be here a day or two.”

Happy 19th Birthday to my FavoriteSon! I’m so proud to be your mom! So thankful that you are a man of God! So impressed with how well you’re doing in school and absolutely LOVE that your work as a tutor provides you with so many opportunities to reach into the lives of others and make such a positive long term impact. We are REALLY glad you decided to stay home to go to school for a while because we LOVE spending time with you. What will we do when you and your heart and your wit and your grin move away to finish college? 😦
LOVE YOU!

Thought while people watching at Magic Kingdom: What a difference if people would afford the same courtesy to the people they love as they afford to strangers. ‪#‎seepeople‬ ‪#‎edify‬ ‪#‎peacelovedisney‬

Been reading “Letters from a Skeptic” on Kindle while PinkGirl and her friend are riding rides at Magic Kingdom. Letters between a Christian and his atheist dad about faith in God. Just got to correspondence # 10, entitled “Why didn’t God spare your mother?” ‪#‎hardquestions‬

Less than an hour stand by wait for the new Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster at Magic Kingdom. The ride was smoooooth, but fast? Not so much. Anybody know the top speed? ‪#‎peacelovedisney‬

Love it when the actual ride is longer than the wait time! ‪#‎teacups‬, ‪#‎tomorrowlandspeedway‬ ‪#‎peacelovedisney‬
