    Today's workout:

    bKB Clean and Press, 4 x 10
    Pull-ups, 3 x 12
    Goblet squats, 3 x 12
    Push-ups, 40-35-25
    bKB Swings, 2 x 30

    Shorter workout today, but still did the job. I shortened down so I would have time to shower and eat before heading out the door to go take another civil service test for job applications. Yes, I'm trying to get back on the government teat. It seems like half of the applications I'm submitting want a test. That's fine, but they are all different test. It would be nice if there was one test that covered multiple jobs. Oh well.

    Keeping my fingers crossed you get something good... when going for a fed job, luck is all-important, no matter how qualified you are.

    One test for multiple jobs makes too much sense. What are you thinking?

    Exactly, Paula. Dave, you're clearly not cut out for government, sir. You're thinking? Ewww. Stop that this instant!

    Yes, you all have excellent points. I don't what I was thinking trying to be more efficient! I'll have to change my ways if I'm going to get ahead.

    No workouts in the last few days. Just been busy with other stuff. We had to take the oldest to get glasses on Friday. We got suspicious when the straight A student in the gifted program was having trouble completing her work in class and not following the directions. It turns out she couldn't see any of them and was afraid to say anything. She now loves her glasses. She better, as much as the damn things cost!!! Saturday was soccer and today was the Children's Museum in Pittsburgh. On the way to the museum my oldest proved yet again just how cool my kids are. She asked me to put on the Goat Rodeo. What she meant was this:


    I honestly can't think of another kid that would ask for that. Oh...and no desire for fucking Justin Beiber.

    Today's workout:

    Overhead press, 3 x 10 each side
    Pull-ups, 3 x 12
    Goblet squats, 3 x 12
    Push-ups, 45-25-15
    Body rows, 3 x 10
    bKB Swings, 3 x 30

    This was a rapid-fire style workout. 20-30 seconds between sets and exercises. Early on I took 20 seconds, toward the middle it was around 25, and by the end I had to take the full 30. By the time I made it to the swings I thought i was going to puke. So, to sum things up, good workout.

    Tried my first Kombucha today(it's a ginger flavored one). I guess it's an acquired taste. It is sort of a mix of ginger, alkaseltzer, and butt. Actually, towards the end of the bottle it wasn't as bad(still not what I would categorize as good). What the hell, it's supposed to be good for you.

    Thanks, Goldie! Luckily, I married an english professor and I let her write it for me. I read that article and it looks like she hit all the points they made pretty well.
