Sticking to working out has been a challenge. I can't get up at five to run. I need to get up at five to run. I have to start going to sleep by ten. Who's alseep by ten? I need to lose five pounds. Just five. That's two BMI points for me. Two.


Another challenge: Parenting. It's tough, I get it. Parenting a step-child has it's separate challenges (thanks to my step-mother who's always loved me as her own). Autism/aspergers boy-child. Who sees me as the Mean Rule Maker. I'm thirty-three and I still want to be care free. Makes it tough to set an example to someone who reads you literally. Jokes need to be explained, "why" can't be answered with "because," disruptions to order are devastating. He is a great kid that knows so much about our solar system - Jupiter is 2.5 times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined; the distance between Neptune and the Sun is 4.55 billion km. Patience, young grasshopper.

How is it the end of February? Nine months to W Day. Wow.
