The other thing I accomplished today was that Pam took me to the used fitness equipment place on Desplaines (around 2000 South) and helped me pick out a bench, barbell, and weights. Got it all home, and then Kev got it into the basement, but we still need to assemble it (after moving boxes around to make space) -- maybe after the kids go to bed @ 7:30? But I'm already exhausted, not sure why.
Maybe getting sick again. Stupid preschool with its stupid germs. I have never had so many piddly little irritating illnesses in my life as I've had this year. I think this is supposed to be the worst year, and that once Kavi goes off to kindergarten, it should be better, although I don't know why. I could swear someone told me that, but it's probably just wishful thinking.
Can you picture me bench pressing free weights? As much as I admire Marilyn, I won't be doing it with make-up on. I did try the bench in the store, out of curiosity, and I can bench press the bar itself (no weights), which is 45 pounds. Which is kind of pathetic, I think, but better than nothing, right? Right?
