I spent my entire childhood wishing that I was older.

I spent my entire childhood wishing that I was older.  Now I'm older and...this shit sucks!  :)  Today is my 48th birthday and I thought this was appropriate!  Being a grown up does indeed suck at times, doesn't it?  Don't you wish you could just play all day and not have to do much more than clean up your room and a few chores?  No worries at all, just be happy and live life.  Ahhh....the good ol' days!  

I had to break down and take an aspirin last night before going to bed.  My shoulder/back muscles were crazy-mad sore from those modified handstand push-ups!  The soreness is gone this morning, thank goodness!  Plus - I'm well rested.  I fell asleep on the couch somewhere between 9:30 and 10:00.  Honey-Buns woke me up to go to bed at 11:00, and I still didn't want to get up this morning!  ;)  Not a lot planned today, we're celebrating my birthday next week with the entire family (which is what I prefer, anyway!).  Tomorrow is Hayley's 20th birthday - I can't believe that she's going to be 20!!  My brother is coming to stay tomorrow, so today will be spent doing laundry and straightening up.  Not too bad!!  

CaliFit Mamas:
   25 Push-ups
   50 Knees-to-elbows
   75 Push-press, 20 lbs
   100 Jump rope

Brand X:
   puppies - Row 5000 meters

White Head: 
   90 Jump rope OR 30 Double-unders
   15 Burpees
   5 Power Cleans

Well, today is a run day, so I'm not doing anyone's workout but creating my own.   I'm going to do Week 1 of 5k training again today, but with a twist...I'm going to run 1.5 minutes, and walk 1 minute for 8 rounds - instead of running 1 minute and walking 1.5 minutes each round.  After that, I think I'll do 50 sit-ups and 50 push-ups, just because those are the Army Fitness exercises.  Fifty sounds like a good number, doesn't it?  Wish me luck!  :)
So, spent my day:  lunching with the fam, shopping, taking down old curtains, putting up new blinds, installing 2 baby gates (for my dog to NOT go upstairs nor down the ramp) stripping beds and re-making them, and washing clothes.  Honey-Buns cooked supper (which means he picked it up) - my favorite sushi from my favorite Japanese restaurant.  Yummo!  Will try again tomorrow, but not sure how that will work.  My morning will be busy with my normal Friday paperwork/billing/payroll and then in the afternoon I'm going to Atlanta to donate an old wheelchair to FODAC (Friends of Disabled Children & Adults), then more shopping at Ikea, then to pick up my brother to come spend the night.  It's Hayley's birthday tomorrow and she's requested grilled steaks, baked potatoes, and a birthday peach cobbler.  Now that I think about it, I probably won't even blog tomorrow - doesn't look like I'll have time.  If you don't hear anything else from me, y'all have a good weekend!!  :)
