Lazy Summer

Is it just me or do we all feel a little more lazy in the summer? Somehow after Jobina and I hung up our skates at being camp directors (which made for crazy busy summers) we seem to shift into "slow" mode when summer time hits. Unfortunately I actually have lots to do so this isn't entirely good. Between doing some real estate fixes, working at OG, counseling a little, getting quotes for siding on our house, finish my last two courses, prepare to teach one in the fall, and trying to enjoy the summer with my family time seems tight. Yet I'm still finding lots of time to procrastinate. I'm even procrastinating on blogging! (Sigh).

Michele recently "tagged" me and though I generally ignore such things I will humor her (she is my sister-in-law after all). Here they are, six unimportant things about myself:

1. Three times a week I do two sets of 40 push-ups and 2 sets of 70 sit-ups. I'm not sure why, but sometime in my mid teens I got into the habit of doing this. I'm guessing that's over 16 years of push ups and sit-ups. That's about 66560 push ups about 116480 sit-ups!

2. I have a great aversion to dolls of any kind.

3. I am an aficionado of late 80's and early 90's rap (the Golden Years). Run DMC, Public Enemy, Maestro, and yes, even MC Hammer. Geniuses, all of them.

4. I have seen several people on bicycle get hit by cars. It's not a pretty sight.

5. I was the first guy in my class to have facial hair, get a growth spurt, and get my voice lowered. In other words, I was the first one to get awkward and I'm not sure if I've ever lost it.

6. When I was 12 years old I decided that I was at the best possible moment in my life. I remember thinking "Well, I guess this is the best its going to be, it's all going down hill from here."

Usually at this point one is supposed to "tag" other people. Nope, not going to do that, however if you don't know what to blog about, here's an easy way to post about something. I leave it to you. It is the summer after all.

Thanks for humoring me Mark! There were many thing I didn't know and a few I did know! Thanks for the insight!
