House Moving

We are moving house in a few weeks and I have an incredible pain in my back. I cannot see any possible way that I will be able to get over this pain, recover, in three weeks.

And then on the moving weekend, I will be only making things much, much worse again.

I am amazed at how little time I have to exercise.

I get up at 6 am. I walk the two dogs for 30 to 45 minutes. I feed dogs, bathe and then rush out the door with both kids. I travel 90 minutes to two schools and then arrive at work.

Most days I do the pickup of kids so it's an additional 90 minutes. Later in the evening, I walk the dogs again. (Most days we have a midday dog walker, or my wife does it).

My wife of course is doing a lot of stuff at home, she is no slacker.

The worst is when my wife travels, and I have to do much more of everything (cooking, bathing children, laundry).


I am just a big whinger, but I cannot understand how I will ever get exercise time.

$69 million in California welfare money spent out of state | "The Times analysis found nearly $12 million was spent in Las Vegas, $1.5 million in Florida, $387,908 in Hawaii, and $16,010 withdrawn from ATMs on cruise ships."

its like the old saying: "What welfare happen in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

Bin Laden and Al Gore

Bin Laden urges a "huge transformation" in how relief work is executed, calling the number of victims of climate change much bigger than the victims of war".
Oh boy, there will be some on the right that will run with this.
