ALIVE!

I am alive.

Apparently just barely. We've arranged our schedule so I only have to work the late shift one week at a time, but man, what a week.

I'm working out again. I haven't lost so much as a single pound, but I can feel the muscles starting to work again. I moved my gym membership from expensive and out-of-the-way LA Fitness to much cheaper, on the way to work, comfortable Planet Fitness. I had missed having a circuit for weight-lifting. I'm not one of those "I'm going to work on my arms today!" weight-lifters, I like being able to just do the 30-minute machine-to-machine thing, on my own. It's a nice place. And much, much, MUCH cheaper, as well as being between my house and the office.

But fat? I has it.

Maybe 'cause my wife has been losing weight hand-over-fist. She looks amazing.

Last week we had the first of what will likely be many sales at Barb's mom's house. Didn't sell as much as we'd hoped. It's the wrong time of year to try selling a ginormous collection of Santa Clauses.

Tomorrow, sale day part two.

Next weekend we go for the Memorial Service.

The fourth cat, Ma-San, has been brought into the house and is living the cage hating us with all her kitty heart. She hisses when I try to talk to her. "Day six, I cannot figure out how to get out of this cage, but I will kill all of them, especially the big white one who keeps poking at me through the bars. The humans can die in a fire. I will escape."

And Churro is poking at her again. He wants to be BUDDIES.

Ma-San does NOT.

There is some serious growling going on here. Churro is rolling around on the floor showing how much he wants to play.

*sigh*

Just saw the new Star Wars trailer. Adrenaline pumping. Oh, PLEASE, don't suck!

Don't know how many people read Gunnerkrigg Court (if you don't, you SHOULD)... but this chapter is hurting my heart.

I realized today I haven't read LJ in days. I skimmed; if I missed anything, please, let me know. I hate not keeping up with folks!

Yesterday, of course, was Sean Patrick's 152nd birthday. Someday I'll get around to getting something published, even if I do it myself.

Cheers for finding a better, less expensive gym!

Yay for working out. If nothing else the cardiovascular system will improve.

Good luck with ma-san. Sounds like you need it

self pubbing is more viable than ever but so much work.

So hoping Star Wars won't suck

Oh PLEASE, let it not suck!

I definitely feel better when I work out regularly. I'm glad I found someplace better suited to me.

She hates us all with a white hot passion...

I keep telling myself it can't be worse than 1-3.

That's good.

As for the kitty, that's too bad. I know that leaves you ladies with tough decisions to make about her future.

We'll tough it out and see how it goes.

We're going to try taking her out this afternoon and see if she'll roam some on her own.

it's all we can do


How did that go?

Sorry. I suspected it might not.

Ma-San and Churro sound like Nano and Quantum. Nano and Quantum have grudgingly accepted each other's existence, except when Quantum chases her and hissy fits ensue. Hugs to poor Ma-San.

What is Planet Fitness like? Is it much like LA Fitness?

Poor Ma-San. She hates us, precious.

It's a gym; there are a lot of weight machines, they're more circular in layout (which is a bit more convenient), not laid out in lines; there are a great many more cardio machines so there's no waiting and no strict time limit on them. I paid for a black card membership so I can use the aqua massage tables & massage chairs (and tanning booths, if I wanted, which I don't). I like the dressing rooms/shower areas a LOT more. They don't have a sauna or a pool, but I wasn't using those anyway at LA Fitness, so on the whole, I like it a lot better. It's sure as heck cheaper.

I was looking at their prices, which are very good. It would be good to at least go a few times a week, if only to get on the bikes and work on strengthening my knees. I didn't much like LA Fitness--not much involvement by staff, a lot of waiting on machines, not sure what some machines did, etc.

The staff at Planet Fitness all seem nice; I haven't asked for any involvement, but I think they'd be willing to help if you asked. (I'm a big one for "leave me alone, I'll figure it out.") There are plenty of machines; I've been at different times and there's always cardio free, which often wasn't the case at LA Fitness.

Good luck with the cat situation and the yard sale. I think the 2nd is more likely to meet with success than the 1st.

Yep. She's come out of the cage to hide in the closet now.

I heard her yelling at Churro last night. He actually seems to understand her "leave me alone," which he never has with the other two!
