Biggest Loser theology

Trainer extraordinaire Jilian Michaels said the following to a Biggest Loser contestant last night: "Pain is fear leaving the body". Not sure how biblically accurate that might be but it raised a good point to me that fear and pain are definitely related in some way. Made me think. Thanks Jilian! Now will you come train me?

Day Off Blues

Grace is grounded this week. No need for details, but suffice it to say playing is still more fun than chores and homework! You gotta hate it when a day off for teacher in-service falls on a grounded week! As she was half asleep and I was telling her good-bye before I left for work, I reminded her that she couldn't play with the neighborhood kids today. Then I asked her to call me when she was fully awake and I would give her "some things to do". We all know that meant chores. I have to hand it to her... she laughed instead of grumbling and said "Like that is going to make me feel better about being grounded?!" Smart girl.

Morning declaration

Grant: "Mommy, I killed a tickle bug in my room with my shoe. My shoe wasn't on my foot -- I just used it to stomp the tickle bug dead. Then I tore off its abdomen."
