well, it's been a week since we left Oz but my body and mind are still attuned to Mermaid Beach time zone...
it's the same with Colin who has been falling asleep in the wee hours of the morning but at least it was midnight tonight... I find myself still awake when the birds start chirping and the Mom in law is rustling... she wonders what I'm still doing up...I don't like getting the 3rd degree... so I think back to looking out at the horizon being painted orange before the sun comes up over the sea... but this trip back to my relative in laws is for my wife.. She likes all the extra help with our beautiful son!
I was glad that my younger self left my half year older self a tiny little present hidden away in the old Infinity...but alas it's all gone now and there is nothing but the Tour de France and of course my precious son to aleviate the boredom...
it was nice yesterday to do some 50 yard sprints in the local pool ..I feel good about doing a 50 in 30 seconds...
that's only 6 seconds less than what I could do it in my prime...so, momentarily think that I can fight off old age before I get fat again in the redneck zone...
speaking of getting in really good shape, it would be fantastic to be a professional lifeguard and swim in the Aussie nationals and of course get my Aussie passport...but the fear of rejection inhibits me
at least it's good to hook up with ole friends, even if it's only on facebook...maybe we'll meet and I can take a little break from the pressures of family life.. (seriously, being Colin's dad is the easy part!)
