Let the record state that as of July 1, 2011, my measurements were:
Bust: 48"
Waist: 40"
Hips: 46"
Thigh: 28"

My weight was 91.4kg at 2.30pm.

I'll be cleaning out the garage this weekend, trying to find a rug so I can do my core exercises somewhere other than the concrete floor, and re-starting my exercise regime.

I'll measure up every week or every month and post progress here.

KEEP ME HONEST ON THIS, GUYS, I WANT TO BE STRONGER. Not necessarily more svelt, but that would be a nice side effect. I'm not going to lose much weight, but I'd like to trade the fat for muscle.

Today was my Oopee and Oomee's 60th wedding anniversary.

Oomee has deteriorated so much since I last saw her, which would have been three or four months ago. She can't sit up. She can't hold up her head. Her eyes don't track. She chews words uselessly, in both Dutch and English.

But it isn't her that breaks my heart; it's Oopee sitting next to her being so gentle and loving toward her still, and struggling to translate her broken sentences. Things like this just shouldn't happen to people like them.

Shouldn't, shouldn't, shouldn't.

It scares the hell out of me. The idea that a mind can just dissolve like that. A whole person can just dissolve like that.

I only cried two or three times today, not including this one. I think by the time she goes, I can only be happier for them both.

A year ago I would have spent the night in tears because I hadn't:
- put on more than one load of washing
- exercised
- written at least 2000 words
- drawn all your christmas commissions
- cooked dinner

Today, I put on one load of washing, did not write or exercise, drew the base for one icon, lay down on the couch when I started to feel headachey, and ordered pizza instead of cooking.

And I am proud of me for that.

I seem to have a knack for catching The Princess Bride on Dad's cable, which is awesome, but also makes me soppy for the rest of the day. I suppose that's all right, though.

My iPod is low on batteries but Music Max is running a best-of-the-nineties marathon, so it's pretty much running through stuff I haven't heard since primary school. (...and apparently Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys contains Night on the Bald Mountain? Who knew?)

Kids and Kyla are off at a birthday party; Dad's at work; I am absently hunting tape so I can tape the French doors before they're painted. Will hopefully get a little writing done this afternoon/this evening.

Apparently we're having lunch with Grandma tomorrow, so I will presumably be finding my way to Darrin's in the early afternoon. Hopefully I will have the chance to go home and exchange a few of my belongings first because I have discovered that my Friday morning packing was somewhat less efficient/complete than usual. XD Oh well. I'll survive.

Will be on and off the internet for the afternoon - it's mine while Kyla's out, but when she gets back it will be a quiet war for dominance. ;)
