Well, my nephew Brennan (Peterman!), has managed to become older again.
While he does this every minute of everyday those elements compounded into a whole year lapsing.
Brennan is becoming quite the little boy and from the news reports I get from his mother and
grandmother and aunt (oh, and dad, too) he’s learning all kinds of fun stuff.
Fortunately he’s not (Orthodox) Jewish, because he’s also quite a ham.
Brennan, you’re a cute kid, don’t let your dad ‘free’ any more ducks .
Erin M. Nuzzi (Mrs. Frank A. Nuzzi), a long time friend, ex-co-worker (can you have that many dashes in a
‘word’ Erin?), wife of one of my best friends, mother to two little boys, daughter of parents, reader
of many books, MOPS member, Matron of honor at our wedding, and all around awesome sister-in-Christ
is also older (did I mention daughter of ‘bean’?).
However, the years have been kind to her and she’s been kind to us and will be joining us next weekend
most likely (Yippee!).
Erin has been a close friend to us ever since we got to know her and her fabulous husband whilst I worked
at the “Manager” (Manger, but for some reason people had a hard time with that).
We were next-door neighbors for a while and she and Jessica endured Tony, Clint (her brother) and I
cutting up like a trio of kids at an ADD convention.
So the dates for this ‘blog entry are out of order, that’s because I had to get my priorities straight.
Also, one other thing I needed to get straight (but couldn’t quite manage it) were water skis.
On the 11th, Alt-N, the company I work for, had a party
at lake Grapevine.
Over all it was awesome – I got to go tubing and try water skiing.
I was horrible at water skiing and completely failed at it, however, I learned something key – Forearms.
I have no forearms today, and frankly typing hurts, my legs are a bit sunburned, my legs hurt, my
back hurts, and I got completely sick and wiped out from dehydration (my own fault) so that I was unable
to do anything but lie in bed for the rest of the evening until after 7:30.
With my understanding of the need for food and hydration I’d do it all over again with the slight change
of having food and more water.
I want to exercise now so that if there’s a next time I’ll get to actually get up on the skis.
With that in mind, I’ve taken to a strict regimine of doing everything else I’ve normally done for
the next couple of days while I recouperate, but then, but then… then I’m going to start
working out heavily so that I can be in T4 (Terminator Forearm: Water Ski’s Revenge).
The water was so fun I have to say its the best fun I’ve had at a lake in a long time, probably since
Lake Tahoe, 4th of July, many moons ago.
If you’ve not been water skiing (or tried at least) you should attempt to do so, preferably behind a
boat with a high powered engine, I saw some guy out on the lake with a paddle boat and I couldn’t
think of a worse way to try to water ski.
I recommend getting your legs and arms ready and having a generally good muscle tone probably wouldn’t
be too bad either.
That’s all for now, this typing is killing my arms and I still need them for taking care of ‘Abigator’
Resting in Him,
