Well, I just got back from the gym…my push for a fitter winter break…now I have legs like jelly, arms that don't extend and abs (wherever they're located) that I'm sure are hurting as well. The funny thing is that as I walked out of the gym I thanked 'Chris the Trainer'…WHY!!!! All he does is cause pain and laugh. He should be called 'Chris the Cruel', or 'Culprit Chris'…if you can think of any other name let me know and I'll pass them along…I'm sure he'll laugh some more.
He made me pant so much that when I took a drink of water it went down the wrong way…and then came up again…out of my nose and mouth all at the same time…charming! My fellow victims (also called group members) laughed…why am I surrounded by sadists!
Last week I had to fly to Melbourne to see our daughter…she wasn't feeling too well after being bitten three times by red back spiders. She didn't even know that she'd been bitten until they did some pathology to find the culprit. By then it was too late to give her the antivenom, but the bigger problem was the golden staph infection she got as a result…nasty little critters!! She's now on the road to recovery and it was great to see her and to spend some time in Melbourne…great city, fantastic restaurants and we got to see the incredible Tutankhamun exhibition. All in all a great result with the added bonus…I didn't have to go to the GYM!
This week should be just as hectic with our son deciding to defer his Degree this semester to take up a supervisor’s job at an archaeological site around Lake Eyre in South Australia. So all his possessions have to be moved from Canberra to here, then get him down to Sydney for a flight to Adelaide where he can get a flight out to the site. It's a great opportunity with only one downside…we wont be able to see him again until the end of the year…humungous phone bills are coming our way. Oh no, I might not be able to afford the Gym fees…what a shame!
