I came across this really raw, powerful post from Single Dad Laughing and I had to share it. Grab a cuppa, it's a long post but well worth the read and extremely interesting!

Going for a swim, ride and run

As part of my 12 week mission to get fit and healthy, I needed to make some milestones along the way. Something to work towards. I'm not sure I know what I'm doing but I have just registered to do a triathlon. Yikes! *deep breath*

It's on the 7th November and it's a women's triathlon called Triathlon Pink and it's for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Now, I personally haven't been through or directly know anyone who has sadly had to suffer through breast cancer but I'd like to support it anyway, you know being part of the sisterhood and all!

And it just so happens that this event ties in with my own personal health and fitness goals. So there you have it, my very first triathlon. Granted, it is only a short course consisting of a 100 meter swim, 3km bike ride and a 1km run. But it's still a triathlon. That I'm doing. I'm not a very good swimmer either, so it's time to start swimming lessons!

I'll add a little box over on the side there so if anyone feels like they want to sponsor me, they can. It would be very welcome and appreciated :)

Transporting the Cubs

In my quest to search for a bike trailer so I can get on my bike with the cubs, I came across the Zigo.

This piece of equipment can be converted into a jogging stroller as well. You can also have the kid compartment on the back in traditional bike trailer style or it comes off completely, so you can ride the bike without the kids (as if that would ever happen).

How awesome is that? I want one! Unfortuantely, the price tag does not agree with our current bear budget. Hmmm *looks around the house to see what can be sold off*

I had my alarm set for Friday morning for when U2 tickets went on sale. As the clock ticked over to 9am, I sat at my computer, requested two tickets and nervously waited minutes in the virtual queue. I missed out on the first show. It seems they sold out in under ten minutes! So, I left my computer and got organised to go to the shops. Just before I left I thought "I'll just check one more time just in case..." and much to my excitement, they added another show so I requested two tickets again, waited, waited and waited some more in the virtual queue. Finally, about four minutes later, it gave me two seats. Wheee! Got some! The Bear and I are really looking forward to it. We don't get out much without the cubs these days ;)

My Wedding Dress

MMBB over at The Muffin Monster Bubbalug Blog was wondering what people did with their wedding dress. Mine has been cleaned and packed away in a wedding dress friendly box and stored in the bottom of my wardrobe. Every now and then I get the box out and take a peek and reminisce about one of the best days in my life.

I'm hanging on to my dress because I'm a hoarder. Well, actually, my dress is a bit different and it is something that I would love for my daughter to see and if she wants to wear it she can. If she doesn't, I'll still hang on to it. It would be nice to have something to pass on even if it doesn't get used as such.

Once I saw this dress, I knew it was The One. I had a bit of a panic after buying it thinking I'd made a mistake but I'm so glad I chose this one. I love it.
