Making This a Good Year

The gym was closed today. Who knew? Of course, I didn’t find out until I pulled up out front and there wasn’t one car on Mulberry. Not to be deterred, as I wasn’t going to keep my ass in a chair all day, I stopped off at a school on my way home and did 200+ yards of burpees. I had calculated I needed to do somewhere between 16 and 18 football fields to make a mile. Yeah, I was considerably short of that . . . Last week for the NFL has been ho hum . . . Once again, haven’t touched my schoolwork during the break. Sigh . . . Gert disassembled three of the 13 Christmas trees today . . . Speaking of Christmas, mass was sparsely attended today . . . Hey, it’s only five or six weeks until spring training begins! . . . I have a huge speech coming up on a topic I don’t have much interest in. The things we agree to do when asked . . . Apparently I read 253 books last year. Sure, most of them were children’s books . . . My dislike for superlatives is well-established, but I am a completist as well. So when the topic is Best of 2011, I selected this photograph. It probably isn’t, but it is one that will definitely remind me of the year . . . Now that I am back to working on the books, it’s quite likely I will complete my 100 books for my BookCrossing project this year. Of course, none of the books I released beginning a year ago have been logged . . . Watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules with the children. I liked it! Of course, I am a fan of the books . . . So, the reality is I have been putting on weight the last two months. I haven’t been unaware of this fact, but it’s more than a trend at this point. I need to get my mojo back. I think I have my head aligned to where it needs to be; I now need follow-through. I refuse to let this get me down . . . As I grow older, the more I realize that the Boy Scout motto is important: be prepared! The more prepared I am, the more efficient I proceed. That leads to a smoother life for me . . . I gave up Facebook months ago. I tire of reading about FB and how great it is. Blech! Likewise, I tire of reading about IOS-only apps. GymPact is getting lots of attention today. It sounds wonderful, but I’ll be damned if I am going to switch cell hone contracts to try it out. If it’s (or any other app, for that matter) that good, port it to Android . . . Charles Barkley is now hawking for Weight Watchers. Huh . . . I note it’s been 2.5 months since Scoble posted a CinchCast. When he stops using a service, I imagine it’s not a thriving company. Time to back up those files . . .
