Since my daughter's leaving for college on Saturday, and I'm already missing her, I took the day off to take her to a job interview and perhaps go to a thrift store downtown. I had planned on also going to yoga with her last night, but her anxiety about leaving her boyfriend, going back to school, and all of her fears left her in a hissy fit, so I left her at home while I went to yoga by myself. Hopefully, today is a new day, and will have a nice time together. So, I didn't to yoga classes yesterday... One in the morning and one at night. I am really sore. It's a good sort. Gymrat, have a splendid time at burning man. Carla, enjoy your classes...what are you teaching/learning today?Jean, what gymrat activity is on the agenda today? SJ, are you there?

I don't watch Project Runway, either, but catch it this season because of her. My daughter said she was on Tumblr and there was a pop up w/ her picture advertising the show. It's nice to see her do well!

Have a GREAT time, gymrat!  Jean, I have never watched the show, but I will record it on the dvr.  Karla, that is HORRID...I can't imagine the life events of that person that would lead to such poor behavior!

That's just one of those crazy sad stories you hear about with the baby. It's so sad.  Yeah, I can't imagine someone emotionally being able to do that but even physically to be pregnant (w/out everyone knowing), give birth and come back to work?

Don't laugh. Everytime we get bubblewrap, I consider it.

Have fun Gym!! I'd love to be going on a fancy vacation but it just isn't in the plans for this year. 

Fresh, hopefully things will settle down for your daughter once she gets back into a routine. 

My fingernail finally fell off from the finger I smashed weeks ago. It looks horrible! It is going to take forever for it to grow back. 

On a different note, about a week ago, a dead baby was found in a Kohl's bathroom. It turned out that one of the employees went in there, had a baby, killed it ,stuffed it into a trashcan, went home to change then went back to work. First, I can't imagine how anyone could do such a thing. Second, I don't know how anyone can have a baby in a department store bathroom and no one noticed until hours later when the baby was found. 

I am just walking tonight. I am hoping the rain holds off for a while.

I would totally do parkour in a plastic bubble.  Cool

Have a great time at BM!  I'll do my best to be the only resident 12 year old boy but I have big shoes to fill!  Glad the Cipro kicked in in time for BM and that they know where to go from here to get you well.  If not, that plastic bubble might work. I should get one so I don't get as injured doing parkour.

Have fun with your daughter!  Maybe leaving her boyfriend is a good thing?  BTW, having you been watching Project Runway? My friend whose daughter is a model has been on this season, Nastasia.  It's exciting watching her, even though it's just short clips.

Not sure I'm working out today. I really need to study for that Corrective Exercise Specialist test.  My deadline is Sept 10, The thing is I have 3 tires. I'm really tempted to take it, get an idea for it and then figure out what to do. I feel like I know most of it but I have terrible text anxiety. And, it's online from home!

FSN, have a lovely time with your daughter!  And remember, she will have to find her own way... whatever that is.  

This is my bon voyage post.  We're leaving in the morning.  I'll be back after Labor Day.  For those of you on FB, you can look forward to updates while we're en route and pics after I get back.  I picked up Brazil yesterday and we've had a blast so far.  Poor guy was exhausted last night but he's been a great sport.  

I got the pneumovax vaccine yesterday and I'll start another series of shots when I get back.  I am hopeful that this is the missing piece.  Meanwhile, the Cipro has kicked in and I'm feeling human again.  

I'll miss you all!  But you'll have the other resident perv (Jean) to make snarky comments in my stead.  

See you later alligator!
