Kids Have A Mind Of Their Own

Today our daughter decided she wanted to go out in the back yard and attempt to get a tan.  I told her that the sun is on vacation right now, and a tan would only be possible if she went to something like a sunless tanning booths.  She got very upset with me, and returned to trying.

A little later on we noticed one of our daughters friends walking around in a bathing suit top.  Well… I wonder if she fell out of a tree when she was younger because it is May, and the weather may be nice for the day, but far from summer weather.  She proceeded to tell us that her pool was open.  I can’t imagine how anyone in New Jersey could have their pool open yet.  The nights still get rather cold.

Am I behind the times, or do people sometimes do absolutely brilliant things?

Trying Everything

I am not an overweight person as far as I am concerned.  My doctor has said that I need to lose a little bit, but never gave me the impression that there was a problem.  In the effort to try and help my wife with her weight loss I decided to walk with her when she walks.

Everyone seems to wonder why.  They ask if I trust her, and things like that.  I explain that I don’t truly know of any safe weight loss pills, and that we are both working together to lose a bit of fat.

The walking works until it gets hot like it is now, and then we just don’t do it.  I have tried asking the wife if she wants to go to the mall to walk… BUT not buy.  This usually sparks an argument.

Funny part of us is that we have a large in ground pool, but no one uses it.  Pools are very good at helping weight.
