I Now Know who that Girl Is!

Have you ever been in a public place and seen someone and knew you knew them from somewhere - but had no clue where? I think we all have. We run down our list of where we might know them - work, church, child's friend's parent.

This past week I was leaving the Y and a girl was coming in. I knew her - just didn't know from where. She knew me. We said an "I know you" Hey - Hello, how ya doin'? with a smile. I kept walking and my daughter Sara said, "do you know her?" I replied, "yes, but I don't know where from"

Tomorrow morning I have an early shift at work 6:30am I started to prepare as I normally do the night before - putting out my clothes, choosing now what I would eat for breakfast - WAIT. I know that girl!

Up until a month ago I used to stop at McDonalds before my early Saturday shift. SHE was the girl that always served every Saturday morning. Wow, the McDonald's girl works out at the YMCA. She must of been shocked to see me there. I guess she now knows where I've been the past month :)

I've done a 180 in the past 3 weeks!

Dear Elijah,

I used to write here all the time - sometimes daily. Life gets busy. We keep pushing forward.

Today I had to buy a new microwave. Our old one made a funny sound and then smelled like burned wires - this all happened within 7 seconds.. not a good thing. Microwaves are basically disposable.. sad.
When I put the new microwave in the old one's spot it was so shinny. You were so cute. You said "Hey, we got a TV for the kitchen! Cool!" Silly boy :)

Just 3 short weeks ago I started dieting and exercising. I've done this a thousand times before - I'm serious, a thousand times. So my expectations are pretty low. According to history I'm due to quit any day. But I so much don't want to. I've been going to the YMCA six days a weeks - I won't always be able to go that often, but 4 days/week is my minimum. I am very thankful that you enjoy going to the "kid's korner" and play while I exercise.

I love you Eli - you are such a funny boy and fun to have around.
