SWIMMING TODAY?

YEAH WHY NOT .....I think I will!

So, today....
- Kids to school
- Go for a swim
- Home to do housework....

I am freakin pleased with myself too.... I was ever so good last night at the BBQ.... I really do think I have found me mo-jo again! It is a great feeling.

I am going to attend a Weight Watcher's Meeting in Manukau this week, on Tuesday... I need to find a meeting that I like, and while Sylvia Park was OK, only 1-3 ladies stayed for the meeting, and I am looking for a larger group, one where I have a chance of meeting a friend or two! That is how I meet and made so many really lovely friends down in Palmerston North. I know it will take a bit of time, but I have all the time in the world, I ain't going anywhere!
Later....

So, I nearly talked myself out of going swimming this morning... but I WENT, I loved it.... and now I have dripping wet hair and I don't care! Well I do actually, that's the bit about swimming I dislike... having to wash/dry me hair all the time. But, it's worth it. My arms are feeling it again now....

After lunch... I TOTALLY FADED.. and had a 2 hour nana nap!!!! DOH... still havn't done any housework!
Just picked up the kids (I drove)... and dang! I found this in the car:


We recieved this cute little parcel a couple of weeks ago!!!! And I left it in the car! Soooooo sorry Kristin! She sent it for Stew, the Champion FARTER in this house! So funny! Kristin is in Singapore..... We have been there... loved the place. So clean, so safe, some amazing SHOPS!!!! Very happy memories of our two weeks there visiting my brother, who lived there at the time.

I found a new 'pick me up' .... I put this lovely photo of our home on my computer as the 'Desktop Background'.... it cheers me up looking at it! I'm a sad git eh? lol

End of Day: I just got awful news... my girlfriend Chris D's husband Dave passed away this evening... I am so upset, I was so looking forward to seeing him again on Wednesday when I fly down there. FATE. Now I hope to still be there for his funeral and to support my friend. nite nite.

  3. About the hair: I think I've read that you should rinse your hair BEFORE going in chlorinated water. It helps to seal it and not let the chemicals effect your color (especially for blondes).

    You sound very positive, which is just absolutely wonderful to hear! Have a blessed day!

  5. Glad to hear that you have found your mo-jo again! Good job on the swimming - I really love it but never get myself out there to do it. There is an adults only pool in my development which is open for the summer . . . I could do that. But first I would have to go swim suit shopping. Gasp!

    I am so happy that you are feeling happier!

  6. I did ww a couple of years ago and joined the YMCA. I went to water aerobics a couple of times a week and loved it. It kicked my ass. Then it got too cold to drive home with wet hair, so I stopped. Pitiful excuse huh? Keep up the good work. I wish we lived closer, I'd go with you.

  21. For me, swimming is alot like sex. I always want to go to sleep afterward.

    My condolences to your friend on her loss. I can't imagine the hurt that is being felt.
