The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Men's Toy Store

We went to PlayItAgainSports yesterday to pick out a Mother's Day present. We got a heavy bag, which we all will use, and I got a new kettlebell. The boys, Kyllian mostly, were climbing all over things and as I was checking out I mentioned that going there was worse than going to the Toy Store. Then the guy who had been helping us piped up with the following gem,

"This is a MAN'S toy store!"

My husband shielded his head, the children ran in fear, the cashier stood there dumbfounded...

I responded with, "WHAT?!!?!". Then, while struggling to get both of his feet out of his mouth, he tried to recover by saying, "Well, not ONLY a man's toy store...."

While he was still choking on his shoelaces I tossed the kettlebell (no, not at his head, although the thought did cross my mind) over my shoulder and asked him to be a gentleman and get the door.
