Almost 3 weeks ago, my sister and I issued ourselves a challenge. Do the plank and push ups every day for the month of July. I’ll admit, it was practically my idea. I’ll also admit, that I am probably the one sister who is not participating in my own challenge.
I have time to check FaceBook, post on Pinterest, write our blog, text my friends, hang out with my kids (this one especially time well spent), go for a run, walk the dog, etc. But for whatever reason, I cannot seem to find 2 minutes to plank and do push ups.
So, depending on how far back you’ve read, you may or may not know that there are two of us writing this blog. We are sisters, one living in Canada and one in the U.S. I am not the organized one. I am the one who excels in procrastination.
While late to the party, I am happy to have finally figured out how to make a separate identity for myself on our blog so you can tell which sister is writing what. I am the U.S. sister. I am the single mom sister. The younger sister with the older children. I am the one lucky to have a sister like her.
Nice to meet you.
As Father’s Day winds down, I would like to say thanks to my husband for being such a great Dad to our kids. They have a lot of fun together are really lucky to have him as their father.
My own Dad is a pretty quiet guy, but a good guy. Back in the late 60s when my sister and I were born, my Dad and others like him waited outside the delivery room until the baby was born and then were given the go ahead to pass out cigars. Times have since changed, but my Dad was ahead of his time.
He was pretty hands on while we were little and wasn’t afraid of raising two girls. We camped, fished and hiked with him, until sometime early in our teen years, when we discovered the mall with our mom. Although, our outdoor pursuits with him slowly came to an end, the skills he taught us still live on. Read what my sister recently wrote, here: Like Father, Like Daughter
That said, our Dad is a steady eddy kind of guy. And what is he doing for Father’s Day? Fishing with his buddies. Probably one of his favourite ways to spend time. Hope you catch a big one, Dad!
There is absolutely no grey on a day like today!
I sure hope my sister is reading this…
