Posting every day is hard. This may be one of my toughest 30-day challenges yet. It's not so much the coming up with something to write about, or even the actual writing. It's the part where on some days, no matter how organized you try to be, there just aren't enough hours in the day.

I am enjoying it, though. And I feel proud of myself for not missing a day yet. What's it been? A week? I'll have to check and see what my official challenge start date was.

Today is Saturday. (I heard that "Duh!") It's supposed to be one of the days where I get to wake up when I wake up and not have my snoring (I don't really snore) rudely interrupted by the alarm clock or hungry children (that's hubby's department on the weekends - poor man is unable to sleep past 7 a.m.) except I, in a moment of insanity signed my son up for early morning swim lessons. So I was woken up at the crack of dawn (7:30) and rushed out of the house and off to swimming. Sans breakfast. At least I had time for a cup of tea.

Then I was home for by 10:00 (and breakfast) and then half an hour later, back in the car and off to the gym for an exercise class with my son. What fun! No, seriously.  We, along with 15 other kids and their parents, did jumping jacks, push-ups, squats, crunches, lifted weights and ran an obstacle course. I felt myself short of breath and sweating but smiling nonetheless. It was good bonding time with my son too, who loved it so much that he wants to do it every Saturday. Surprisingly, so do I.

By late afternoon, my legs and arms began reminding me that I'd participated in an exercise class this morning and judging by the grunting and moaning I'm doing everytime I go down the stairs or get up off the sofa, I'm going to be pretty stiff and sore tomorrow. But I'm still smiling and looking forward to next week's class.

Despite the early start and hectic run around, it's been a good day. I hope yours has been good too.

Wish I could hear S singing in the tub. I'll bet that was adorable.

You're doing well with all your challenges, I see. I'm about to embark on the challenge of reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, too, but I think I may defer my actual start date until tomorrow so I can get to bed at a reasonable hour. Or maybe one chapter . . .

You will love JS&MN, I'm sure. It is beautifully written.

In South Africa, VIM is a cleaning product. No wonder you like using the word, it ties in with your latest cleaning vim.
