Finally got my act together and saw GP about sore heels. Diagnosis: plantar fasciitis. Currently on industrial anti-inflammatory for a week, we'll see how it goes but it's nice to be able to walk easily again.

Feeling proud that I stuck with all 4 weeks of fitness boot camp in the park provided by work. Definitely feeling the difference in strength & energy. But now at a loss for what to do to keep the good habit going. Anyone have a recommendation for a good all around callisthenics style workout program that can be done solo?

Violet Beaudelaire tests out the grappling hook she invented.

Book week victory! Now to cobble together Violet Beaudelaire grappling hook.

Foolhardily planning on trying to sew a wizardy Harry Potter Cape this weekend for Book Week. Wish me luck.

Quads are far less sore after Fitness Bootcamp week 2. Also a small miracle: both small people slept in their own beds THE ENTIRE NIGHT.

Been quiet in this space. Hi, everybody!

Still navigating Winter Meh and recovering from Twin Birthday #6. How about yourselves?

Hell hath no fury like a woman who was too tired to cook dinner because her spouse twisted his ankle something awful last night and she’s had to juggle child care, household responsibilities, and sprint planning for work so she decided to order dinner on Menulog but the restaurant didn’t deliver the food after an hour and a half and her kids were getting whingy so she had to walk down the road for Thai takeaway and the littles didn’t get to bed until 9:30 😱

Finding the posts an interesting read. I have a long answer and a short answer, but I’m nearly at my train station so short for now. I’m on because I like the tenor of the folks that post here. I’m on Mastodon because I never really got into Twitter and Facebook was giving me the shits on multiple levels. I like the independent/federated idea, have been burned by other platforms disappearing: MySpace, Orkut etc.
