    Can I ask why you did not try to get back into law enforcement?

    I actually am trying. The jobs around here are few and far between(as far as road cops go), and the pay sucks. Right now I'm trying with some probation and parole jobs and investigation jobs with the state that pay OK, but they come with competition. That's the economy right now, I guess.

    It sounds as if you are doing everything possible. Look at it this way, the beginning of the school year is a really good time for you to be off. More time to help the girls get into the rhythm of things.

    So in the mean time relax, rock the workouts with the kids and feel free to post awesome stuff in my journal any time.

    The admiration is mutual.

    I have totally non flirtatious admiration for you as well. I love that you are a great husband and father who is doing the best he can for his family.

    Today's workout:

    KB Snatches, 2 x 10
    KB Clean and Press, 2 x 10
    Pull-ups, 3 x 10
    Goblet Squats, 3 x 10
    Push-ups, 35-20-15
    Body rows, 3 x 10
    KB Swings, 2 x 25

    Did today's workout a little different. Rest periods between sets and exercises was kept to 25-30 seconds, and all lifts were done at max speed(still keeping good form, though). It was much more a muscle endurance workout even though I was using the heavier KB.

    So the other night it felt good to blow off a little steam, although I won't make a habit of it. I'm not one to wallow in self pity, but I do appreciate the support of friends.

    Oh..and I found this. Some good news for us heavy coffee drinkers.

    Caffeine May Contribute to Healthy Liver, Researchers Suggest

    Here is the actual NIH article.

    Today's workout

    bKB Clean and Press, 4 x 10
    Pull-ups, 3 x 12
    Goblet Squats, 3 x 12
    Push-ups, 40-25-15
    Body rows, 3 x 12
    bKB Swings, 2 x 40

    Felt good today. Not the same short rest period like last time. Not like they were long, but enough to catch my breath and let the heart rate come down a little.

    Today was a big day. School has been in for about 2 weeks for the oldest, but it was the first day of kindergarten for the little one. Lots of pictures, and of course mama skink was sobbing. They'll be home around 2:30. Little one loves to talk as it is, so I'm sure she'll be talking non-stop about it.
