the grass is greener

I was totally going to mow the lawn today but it's going to rain any second and the forecast calls for thunderstorms. Sorry, Dad. (my dad needs a livejournal. who else agrees? spacedad or something, he could complain about his freeloading daughter. anybody else's parents on this thing?)

Totally registered a domain name for a client today only to have him e-mail me mentioning the domain again, only with a different spelling. DAH! He'd better have made a typo, he's soo paying for the mistake.

Worked out yesterday at the Jewish Community Center. Did stairmaster and weights and everything and am surprisingly not too sore today. Excellent! Still have no arm strength, btw, in case anyone was thinking I'd outgrow my whole genetic weakness or whatever. Even when I lifted weights in track I didn't have strong arms, I got so I could bench the bar PLUS 10 POUNDS and that was like a huge deal. A bar looks really sad with little 5lb weights on either side, especially when it's next to some hulking linebacker loading a bar with weights I can't even lift when they're not all together on a bar. Sigh. I guess if I could change one thing about my body it'd be that: I'd be able to beat at least one person on this planet at arm wrestling. Well, and I'd have perfect vision. Damn this imperfect self of mine!

My sister's hermit crab moved from one corner of its little hut to the other, so I've successfully kept it alive for like three days now. Awesome!

I was helping my brother move 8 66&2/3 pound bags of fertilizer for my farm the other day. I had to move them from the end of the truck to the tailgate so my brother could get them off and put them away (~3 feet). I felt like a weakling... I'm tellin' ya, the kickbaler is the worst invention on the planet. I stayed in (relative) shape when I had to help bale hay. But now that I've been to college 2 years, and no haying in between, I've just gone down hill. I'm still trying to get myself to at least get outside and walk so I can get a little back into shape. As for arm strength, I don't think I'll ever really get that back... no baling hay, and I type all day for work and school (Comp Sci soon to be Comp Eng major)

My parents don't even know about this. I kind of feel my mom would not want to read some of the things I write...

I have experience with lifting the bar with 5 pound weights on either side! My high school coach didn't want to burn us out, so he only let us lift light free weights. Then I was going to run D1 in college, so I had to work on building my strength up the summer before so I wouldn't look like a wimp in the weight room. My 8th grade social studies teacher was a body builder, and he'd always be in the weight room at the same time as me... I'd always challenge him to lifting contests. Haha.

Reguarding Weight lfting, Kim, both Mike and I are reasonably good at it, and training. I've helped a few people in my spare time, and I'm sure either Mike or I could help you with something. I'd love to, and I'm sure Mike would get a kick out of helping. Let me know?
