Who am I kidding?

Today my dear B picked up my new triathlon wetsuit. Well second hand but new to me. I tried today and it is soooo tough to put on. I have no idea how I am going to take the darn thing off in a timely fashion if I am ever to compete.
The guy who sold it to us told me his wife didn't really like the cold water and being kicked! Just great.
I spent an hour watching clips on how to transitionned from swimming to biking and then some more clips about ironman. The latter is pure madness and I will say without shame I am NOT interested in doing one EVER! However I am secretly toying with the idea of a half ironman. I know it won't be for a long time since you need time to train for those things and time is hard to come by these days!
Today I did go swimming. I have to admit I don't know how many laps I did since my small brain has a real hard time keeping count. I would say probably around 1100 yards in 30 minutes.
On the girlie front I did receive my Frye flats and they are adorable. I am really happy to have chosen them over the boot. I know already that I will wear them a lot. Now I need to actually slap the return label on the box, fill out the return slip and send the boots back!
Tomorrow is running. Given the temperature at lunch I may go for a late afternoon run which is probably going to collide with B's evening run. I need to rework my work
out schedule a little.
I hope to get my new bike shoes before the end of the week so I can try them on this week end. I also absolutely have to learn how to do basic fixes on my bike... I'm still asking B to pump my tires Lame!
On the home front I have to confess that my laundry skills suck big big time!.
I hate it I hate it I hate it I hate it... Do you think that if I repeat that sentence enough time it will magically get folded and put away on its own. Lets hope lets just hope.

I like to just curl up in the fetal position under the warm, clean laundry pile and hide from the incessant call of, "Mom? Mommy? Mommy? Mama? Moooommmmmyyyy? MOM!"
That's all the laundry is good for, really.
