Challenge Accepted Day 3

So, I have to start today’s blog with the funniest thing that came out of my son’s mouth this morning; but you’ll need a little bit of background information first. In Australia, doodle is another term for penis. In America, doodle means to scribble on a piece of paper (same thing in Australia) but it is also the name given to a dog that is a mix of two breeds, one of them being poodle. We have a dog who is half poodle, half golden retriever, ergo, a golden ‘doodle’. I have used the name doodle interspersed with penis when discussing my son’s private bits with him ever since he was a baby (he’s now 3.5). He walked into the bathroom this morning as I was about to get in the shower and said, “Mummy, I can see your doodle!” Giggle, giggle. I then told him I didn’t have a doodle because I was a girl, his response: “I can see your golden doodle!” OMG! I cracked up! I am still laughing as I write this down and it hurts! 

Why does it hurt? Because T25 is kicking my butt! I so didn’t want to do it today! And my run was very slow and I’m fairly sure I looked like Eddie from Ab Fab as she attempted to run and I use the word attempted very definitively! Seriously, everything is sore today! As I was doing total body circuit, I wanted to beat every last one of those buff people, including Tania and her ‘I’ve just had a baby and I’m still fit and kicking your arse’ body! When is my day off? Oh crap, not for a little while and if memory serves me correctly, there’s a double workout on Friday! NOOOOO! 

Let’s talk about something a little more fun than that now, let’s talk about needling! Never heard of it? Have heard of it, but not really sure what it is? Have had it done? Well I’ve not had it done but I’ve heard about it and the amazing results that can be achieved after 4-6 micro-needling procedures. Unfortunately, each procedure costs anything from US$250 – $1000! You also bleed after having it done, then there’s the risk of infection when using products that haven’t been tested as post needling serums. Rodan and Fields offers their own, at-home version of a needling tool. It is called the Amp MD and I have one. It is part of the treatment I am using over the next 57 days. Every night I am rolling the Amp MD over my face & neck for approximately 1 minute, followed by the night renewing serum or ‘liquid velvet’ as I like to call it. The Amp MD feels a bit weird at first, and you should be delicate when using it for the first time and follow the guidelines as to how to use it very closely. I started on Monday night and am incorporating it into my nightly routine. I have honestly seen some incredible before and after photos, and I want some of those results, hence my dedication to giving this full commitment for a total of 60 days. It sounds scary, I know, but it’s not, it’s just weird. But when you get to a certain age, you want results, well I do anyway, without scary, invasive surgery type treatments!
So, here’s cheers to getting fabulous results! By the way, lunch today was similar to yesterday, though not as good as I didn’t have any avocado! Insert sad face here! Here’s a photo of it for you to enjoy anyway, just in case you’re hungry right now 😉

I didn’t sleep much again last night but this time it was because of silly Vonage! Don’t get me wrong, I love it, we’ve moved all over the USA and now the world and still have our same Texas phone number, but it also means people call it thinking we are on Texas time zone, so the first time it rang at 0140 local time with a recorded message telling me I’d won a cruise, yes ok! Sure! The second time it rang it 0530 telling me Fedex was delivering a package today that needed a signature! Yes, that’s great, unfortunately the package we are expecting isn’t coming to our house here in South Korea, it’s going to my Brother-in-law’s house, and I don’t have a pen on me when it’s 0530 to be able to take note of the tracking number and what to do if no one is there. Most people aren’t home during the day, they do this thing called working. Anyway, I guess they attempted delivery and he wasn’t home so they’ll attempt delivery again tomorrow and again he won’t be home, so we’ll continue to play this game of cat and mouse until Fedex can give me the tracking number again, when I’m in a state to receive it. It’s an important package too and one we’ve been trying to get sent to us here in South Korea ever since we found a house, but obviously there are some anti-us-receiving-it, forces at play, and it’s not going to happen any time soon! 

Alright, I’m calling it a day as my iPad has gone into funky slow motion mode and looks like a ghost is typing on it. I think that’s a sign for me to stop! Have a great day/night, wherever you are!

As a lover of so many things, I relish in sharing the diversity of my interests including, but definitely not limited to: writing about whatever catches my attention in the moment, sharing my love for travel through photography and stories, DIY projects that can be anything from curtain revamping to kitchen remodeling, painting, narratives about my children and tips and tidbits for anyone traveling through this thing called life. It’s definitely a journey and with three kids, two fur babies and being married to a military man, I always seem to find the crazy!

One thought on “Challenge Accepted Day 3”

  1. You had me literally LOL! Kids say the funniest things! My grandmother had a saying in Spanish that went something like: Only the drunk and the children tell the truth. For some reason that popped in my head when I read your story.
