Fitness Can Sometimes Get Boring

May 19, 2009
I spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer. The older I get, the more this seems to affect my body.

The kids love her, but make comment when she’s not around about the odour, and with the heat we've been having in BC lately, the situation is getting worse, so they have to air out the house when she’s left.
