Friday Maintenance

Which Basically means BYOC and other stuff.

So I'm going to the gym again today.  All my bags are packed..I'm ready to go...(I hate to wake you up to say goodbyyyyyyeeee).  Anywhoozle...excited to hit the gym again.  During my last workout, I was able to do assisted pull ups and dips which I'm still feeling in my arms today.  Awesome soreness!

My workout tomorrow is going to be cleaning out my garage.  It is a crazy disaster in there.  When we moved last May (yes, I said LAST May), everything just got thrown in there like it was a storage unit.  And as we've gotten rid of chairs and couches, they've gotten thrown in there too...along with our extra fridge, washer, dryer and bunk beds.  The plan is to haul it all OUT of the garage and put it back in all organized and pretty and throw everything else in the dumpster or put it to the side for the bulk garbage pick up happening at the end of May.  Anyway, I think that's going to be a very good workout.  Sunday we're taking the girls to get their pictures taken.  It's been forever since we've done professional portraits for them and JCPenney has a good deal for April.  Excited about that.  I'm also trying to talk Hubby into getting me a new phone over the weekend.  We'll see.

So BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy! courtesy of Drazil.  Please see link on the right to her blog ---->
It’s Friday, my Skittles! That means it’s time for BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?
OMG!  I'm scared to death of this conversation.  It's not the sex one...I think I can handle that.  It's the period one.  As a woman, I hate mine so I'm going to find it very difficult to put a positive spin on it.  On top of that, it's just so...icky.  I have no idea what the appropriate age is nowadays.  Kids seems to mature so much more quickly than when I was younger.  I may take my cue from the school or when kids seem to have questions...I don't have a good answer here as every kid and parent is different.  

2. What’s the color scheme in your bedroom?
Scheme?  I have no scheme.  We rent so decor is at a minimum.

3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?
Dove has a damage repair formula that I like a lot and I can buy loads of it at Sam's Club.  I used to use an expensive one from a salon and found that this actually works better for me.  

4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?
I do nothing.  And I admit it's nasty.  I always vow to do better but I never do.  As a reward for working out 15 times a month, I'm going to reward myself with a pedicure but I've yet to hit it.  *sigh*

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!
Real life - Eh.  Work blows.  TOM came this week and I freakin' hate it.  Now that I'm off birth control, I FEEL it more...bloating, grumpiness, emotional mess...
Blogosphere - Pretty good.  Seeing a lot of great motivation here and some long lost bloggers are making reappearances.

And I'll finish off with a Friday Funny:

Have fun cleaning your might come across a treasure you forgot you owned!

Oh yes - I have a feeling you'll get the reward pedicure soon now that you are back to the gym. AND I totally get you on the period thing. I don't know how to tell her about it without first saying IT SUCKS SOOOO MUCH!

Ugh! Your garage is the equivalent to my basement. I'm in denial and rarely go down there...but I know what is waiting for me. Good luck on the decluttering tomorrow!
