Yesterday morning started like most non work days. I got up, fed the kids and took them to school. Although this morning, I changed my routine when I got back home. Usually, I do one of 2 things. I either kick on the Netflix and watch Star Trek TOS (I’m in season 2) or I crawl back into bed and cuddle with the wife until I fall back asleep again. When I play Star Trek, usually around 10 o’clock or so, I start getting tired and end up falling asleep anyways. So this morning, I came home, changed into shorts and a t-shirt and dusted off the Wii. But before I got started, I hear shouting. A woman on the other side of the complex kept yelling (while crying) to leave, just get out. It took me a bit to locate where it was happening, but I saw the door open so whoever was doing the arguing were in the doorway. I saw 2 teenage girls leave and that was the end of it. So I went back to the Wii, turned down the volume and put my headphones on (Cheri and Skyler were still sleeping).
I’m pretty sure 106 days ago I logged in real quick just to see if I’ve gotten any fatter. When we first got the Wii, I set up a program to work out to. It had some yoga along with strength training exercises. So I logged into that.
Yikes, that’s even longer than I thought. No wonder I’m fat. I turned on my Spotify and did the program. It’s a total of 52 minutes. It was harder than I remember and I certainly didn’t perform it as well as I did 910 days ago but I completed it. Worked up a sweat and everything. Here’s the workout at a glance.
These are the Yoga ones, I do 17 (squared in yellow) of those 18.
These are the Strength training ones, I do 11 (squared in yellow) of those 15.
I finished up, then I did some of the games on the Wii fit kind of as a cool down. I ended up spending about an hour and 20 minutes doing something other than laying around. That’s a big step for me. Not that I’ll do it again, but at least when I log into the Wii next time, it won’t say over 1000 days since the last time. Or at least I hope it doesn’t.
I went back and hopped in the shower so I can smell pretty when Cheri and I went to run our errands. I got out of the shower and started telling her about the yelling I saw, I pointed out the window to the apartment where it was coming from and what do I see but cops walking around. Now granted, this is 2 hours later. I rubbernecked for a few minutes when I see this.
Now, she walked down the stairs and climbed onto the stretcher so I don’t know what her issue was. All I know is there was a shouting match there 2 hours earlier and then what you see here. I checked the local police blotter but it only goes to the 7th. If I remember to look I will let you know what happened, chances are I probably won’t remember and to be honest, I don’t really care. Other than it made my usually boring mornings a little more exciting. And I got a blog post out of it. Lucky you.
