Wonder of wonders, I actually have a few moments to spare and so I thought I'd just write a word or two to pass the time. I am waiting for Kid's Club to begin in about an hour--our last one for the year! I'm trying to think how I'm going to make it through the evening as I am experiencing some major back pain--yowch! My solution will be a stool that I saw on the stage earlier, but that just won't cut it for our action songs--I get my best workout on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings when we do music with the kids. Hopefully a few of the kids know first aid in case I keel over. I am also eating a Tim Hortons chunky chicken salad wrap. It is really good, but I started eating at the wrong end (typical of me) and now I have two open ends. I am going to run into some problems in a moment. Had a good day, my most productive day all week, so I'm feeling kind of on top of things again...almost. Wow, this was a super-boring post. I'll finish in grand style with my most favourite joke of all time (which, no doubt, some of you have heard me tell numerous times).
Q: What has a bottom at the top?
A: Two legs!

Ok, so this is me after 4 months at the gym. Kidding. But today on my way home from the gym, I actually considered what it would take to get to get to the place where this lady is (bad hair and outfit aside). What attracts me to the idea of body sculpting is the goal you have to work towards. For so many years I had one big goal in my mind...to get my degree. It drove me to study hard, to put in long hours at work, and to strive for the day that I would walk across the stage in Simpson Chapel (with visions of gold curtains dancing in my head). I feel like the last few years, I haven't really had a huge monster of a goal that I wanted to work towards, and I really would like to find one that I could be passionate about. I know a lot of my friends are starting to freak out as they read this blog...I don't really want to look like this lady...she is quite odd and manly looking...and I don't want to be a crazy fanatic who can't live without steroids. But just maybe I could actually be fit--for once in my life! What do you guys think? Perhaps the kind ladies at BodyFit have put a little something extra in my protein shakes...or maybe they are pumping subliminal messages through the sound system and are beginning to brainwash me. I guess I'll keep thinking on this and see what my trainer thinks when I go in for my next assessment. Am I crazy?

Well, since everyone seems to think my life is quite exciting, I will have to figure out something exciting to write about...any suggestions? In the meantime, I thought I would pass this website on to you; www.kookychow.com . It was created by an alumni of Big Idea Productions, which as you may or may not know was the powerhouse behind Veggie Tales. What you may not know is that after various lawsuits and a company spinning out of control, most of the Big Idea employees were laid off and Phil Visher sold the company to pay off their debts etc. Phil still has some ties to the new company, still writes one Veggie Tales story a year and lends his voice, since half the voices are his! Phil has a great story and you can learn more about him and his new ventures at www.philvischer.com . I guess in the meantime, other people have moved on to bigger and better things, such as kookychow--it did put a smile on my face today...

I realized today that I really haven't written anything about ME for a week or two now, so I thought I would cure everybody's insatiable appetite for news about me. I guess this IS my blog, so I can write about me as much as I want (boy, that sure sounds narcissistic!). Things are starting to wrap up for the kids programs at the church, and today I plan to crack open the big box I received that's full of summer camp (VBS) stuff. Easter is coming in a week and a half, and I plan to head to Cold Lake for a few days. I'm looking forward to getting away for a bit and visiting family and friends. I still watch Chevy most days, I had him for a whole week a while back! He has a constant need to run through mud and roll in the grass...I always say that he is so gentle he would never hurt a fly, but the other day he started to chase and snap at the flies buzzing around our back yard! On a sad note, he escaped from the yard the other day and got bit by another dog...however, he doesn't seem to have learned any lessons from this. Well, I'm sure my life really is more exciting than how I make it out to be in writing. If you want to see a really sorry life, check this link for the world's dullest blog... http://www.wibsite.com/wiblog/dull/. Also thought I'd leave you with this article http://www.slate.com/id/2137959/ .It is probaby one of the more practical pieces of advice I have read in ages, although I cringed through most of it. Sneeze carefully!
