Summer... finally!

Summer has finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest. And honestly, not a moment too soon. When the local news did a story with the title "Summer Cancelled?" people kind of started to lose their shit.

To celebrate the sun, I got an iPhone. Oh yes, I did. It's kind of like a little mini starter version of the iPad (which I still don't have). So I am looking at it as iPad practice.


As soon as the weather was warm enough to swim, Carlie was ready to be at the pool 24/7. Except she had one small problem. Or make that five small problems... five stitches in her eyelid. Which, WTH with the super healing power of children? It has been a week and a day, and she is almost looking 100% like nothing happened. Whereas I still have pink puckery scars from my surgery in February and, frankly, I think my 11 and a half C-section scar is still kind of numb and jacked up.

She got her stitches out on Friday, and we spent most of the weekend hanging at the pool. Oh, and just FYI, I am apparently the fattest person in this condo complex, or at least the fattest one in a bathing suit at the pool. Yay me. FML.

I can't find my camera, but this is our pool. We are big pimpin', can I just say.
Since I am the fattest person at the pool, and since I have this gorgeous running trail literally steps outside of my door, I've decided to put it to use and get back to a regular running routine. You know how people say shit like "Getting out there is the hardest part, but I'm always so glad I did it," and "Oh, I love the energy I have for the rest of the day after a good morning workout" ?? Well, they are all fucking liars. Working out SUCKS. And running SUCKS. And OMG why couldn't I have been born with some kind of freakish metabolism that allowed me to eat cheeseburgers and kettle chips and not pork out? LIFE IS NOT FAIR.

So that's what we've got going on this summer. Some running, some swimming, some pool lounging, healed stitches and an iPhone. Never a dull moment. I wonder if there's an app for that.

I always wonder why 'they' say if you exercise you'll have more energy, but 'they' also say if your dog is too wild and energetic you need to exercise him to tire him out. Make up your freakin' mind, 'they'.

Sorry, Shana, I do have more energy when I exercise, depending on how hard I exercise.

Also, your iPhone should have a decent camera in it. I've gone picture happy since getting my Android.

Oh, and my witness yesterday was a model. I now feel like a fat cow after having spent a day in a room with her.

Congrats on the iPhone. It's so pretty!

I love your pool and have a hard time indeed believing you're the fattest person there.

If it makes you feel any better, I saw today on the morning news that Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee have the highest obesity rates in the country. Come here - you'll totally look skinny. ;-)
