learning disabled, but handsome

Here is my darling brother, LD. Contrary to popular belief, LD does NOT stand for Lunch and Dinner (he hasn't always been so svelte), Lunge and Destroy (he used to be quite a violent toddler) or Learning Disabled (hmm, no comment). It stands for Little David...which isn't really accurate either, come to think of it. I guess "Little" just means "younger than the other 56 Davids in our family".

Anyway, I'm going to move on to the pictures now. He'll hate that I posted these, but I bet he'll get over it. And for all interested young ladies, he's single, but you'll have to pass family inspection.


bossy shoes

So, I got new running shoes a while ago. I ordered them from Amazon, and upon first look was very happy with the new version of my old shoes - see how nice they look?

However, on closer inspection, I was quite surprised to receive such a personalized pair of very bossy shoes...lacking a comma of course, but can you really expect proper punctuation from a pair of shoes?

Why am I posting this?

Because Mo goed. Or went. Actually, Mo is goING. Today marks Day 25 of my exercise streak. I'm very excited about it. I know it's not much - just 20 minutes of walking or jogging each day (at wildly varying speeds depending on how I'm feeling), but I'm loving it and am glad to see movement in my life towards consistency.

It started as a commitment to 21 days of exercise, thank you Ben Franklin. I joined a group of other cloth diapering moms online (yes, I realize this is weird) who were doing the same thing. It was REALLY hard a few of the days, but I ended up loving it. So much so, that I kept going! I'm now on Day 3 of my second time around, this time with my mom.

Here's to more MoGo.
