  But I love my Skechers

I dropped Q off at VBS and pulled RJ up to the gym. The temperatures were pretty moderate today, certainly better than Monday or Tuesday. At the gym, I realized I left my sneakers at home, so we went in search of a shoe store and the best we could do was a Burlington Coat Factory, I picked up a pair of Skechers for $30. They'll be my everyday shoes from now on and I'll leave my sneakers in the kids trailer.

RJ walked into Baby-sitting and paused momentarily, for some reason, he's afraid of the guy babysitters at the gym. Lucky for him, Miss Robin would be in later and he loves Miss Robin.

I took it really easy, it's been almost two months since I've been in the gym. Even with light weights and frequent breaks, my blood pressure dropped and I thought I was going to pass out several times. That'll go away eventually. I think I need to bring an extra pair of cycling clothes with me when I go to the gym, it was icky putting the wet cycling clothes back on.

When I picked up Q at school, a mother walked by and told me that she passed me on the road and that I was nuts for riding in this weather (but she said it in a nice way). After the ride, it was lunch, protein smoothie, and a nap.

Sorry, the title wasn't a review of my new Skechers, it was a line from the movie "10 Things I Hate About You" (there's a link to the movie in the title) starring Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Alison Janney, and a couple of people from "3rd Rock from the sun"

It's a funny scene and the next line is "That's because you don't have a Prada backpack"

I've gone through kidney failure twice. The first time in 2000, my mother donated a kidney; and again in 2008, I'm on dialysis waiting for a breakthrough in immuno-suppression medicines before seeking a new kidney.
