You've Heard This Story Before...

Me and the gym...

I like the gym. I enjoy the benefits the come from working out at the gym. I am always happy after I am done working out at the gym.

I just hate the process of GOING to the gym. I think about it and just want to roll my eyes and complain. The strange thing is that now that I am on vacation it should be easier than ever to get to the gym. I have a lot of free time. I have been to the gym every day this week but not before 6pm. Why? Because it has taken me the whole day to make myself go! I was surprised to hear the gym would be open today. I was even more surprised to hear that it would be open for regular hours today. I then found out that it is open regular hours because there is a BIG party at the gym for the 4th which will end in watching the firework display put on almost next door at the Modesto Nuts baseball game. As soon as I heard that little piece of information I told myself that I wanted to make sure to get to the gym EARLY in order to avoid the mayhem at the gym and driving there due to the baseball game traffic. However, I am still piddling around the house doing little things trying to put off my trip to the gym.

When will the thought of going to the gym be enough to push me out of the door in a hurry? I need that change to happen soon!!!

On Vacation

Finally! I am on vacation...YIPEE!

The last week of school was brutal. Aside from the fact the the kids and I were just plain tired, we had to deal with awful smoke in the air. Last week at this time there were over 8oo fires in the state. The smoke was blown into our central valley and just stayed put. It was awful to look at and even worse to breathe. We were on the air quality red alert all week until Friday when it turned into a purple alert which is even worse. YUCK! We had a nice bit of wind come through and push the smoke out but the forecast for this weekend calls for less wind, higher heat and more of that smoke pushing our way since we still have fires going around the state.

In an interesting side note to the fires, Gov. Schwarzennegger, has asked that we Californians not buy or use fireworks due to our current situation with the fires and smoke. I was quite pleased and surprised to hear this come from him. Many are bashing his idea though saying that it would hurt non-profit organizations who need the money brought in from the sale of fireworks. I guess that no one ever heard of making a donation!

In other news, Sabi and my mo are off to explore Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. How fun! I will be joining them soon to go to Panama. Until then...I rest and enjoy being on vacation!
