While giving the house a good cleaning today, I noticed my weight bench had acquired a thick layer of dust. This made me feel a little bad that I haven’t exercised in such a long time. I decided I should never let this happen again. It’s just too depressing for me to allow the weight bench to sit there all dusty and neglected.

Well, only time will tell. But, I assure you, I’m going to give this my best effort.

You hang in there, girl.

  • At last, we reach the part of the infomercial that none of us saw… I know, I once had a Nordic Trac (and, a separate time, a weight bench), and I calculated my per-dusting cost to be on the order of $5 each. I finally sold it to someone else with the gleam in their eye. (No, they wouldn’t listen to Reason.)

  • Picking up a second language (where should we vacation)?
    Debbie’s dust story reminded me of my experience in learning another language, where my pile of how-to-speak books is much like her weight bench — thickly covered with dust and good intentions. But we’re going to force the issue. Next year I’m taking …
