Fireworks And Heavy Weight

This Fourth of July was just like any other. I feel I do the same thing every year. Maybe that is a good thing.

I started off the holiday with what I do best…a workout. This workout was not like the one we did last year but I like that it was different. The past few months I have been doing my own thing and it was great to do a workout with the class.

You and your partner complete the following with one partner working at a time. 20 minute cap

Run 1,6oo meters at 400 meters at a time while other partner holds 115 pound bar overhead. If they drop it then they do 5 lateral burps. 

Then into…

150 wall ball shots while other partner holds deadlift weight of 205 pounds. With time remaining do max reps of toes to bar or weighted sit ups. 

It was a hard one but I managed to only have to put the bar down twice. That is a big win for me.

After that I came home and had my shower, helped my wife clean, and played with Evie. K-Dub went to the parade with her grandparents. My wife went to the store to pick up dinner and to later pick up K-Dub. While she was gone I put Evie down for a nap and just laid on the couch.

When my wife and K got home we headed to the pool for some cool off time but it was short lived as a storm headed in. Thank goodness It did not last long.

After we changed I made burgers, hotdogs, cut up some strawberries and watermelon, boiled some corn, and made homemade ice cream. We invite my MIL to come over and hangout for a couple of minutes.

Soon fireworks started popping off so we sat out in our driveway and watched them before sending the kids off to bed. My wife and I even had on matching T-shirts.

All and all it was a great low key holiday. I hope this blog entry did not bore you too bad. Sometimes you just need a simple day at the house.

My Top 5 TV Reunions I Want To See

As most of you have already read the news online (If not, click here.). Disney is trying to do a spinoff of the popular show Boy Meets World. It got me remembering my friday nights laughing at Cory, Shawn, and Topanga as they went through their lives trying to make sense of it. I also laughed every time I heard the famous “Feeny call”.  The new show would focus on Cory and Topanga’s daughter and it is titled Girl Meets World. It would not be that bad to have the old gang come back and my a few guest appearances. I could use some more Mr. Feeny knowledge in my life.

There was another show that I loved and I somehow think it prepared me for adulthood and that is Friends. Even today I watch the reruns on TBS and laugh like I never heard them before. The cast needs a reunion soon. It would totally make my life. There is something about Chandler’s humor, Monica’s OCD, Joey being a womanizer, Pheobe’s silly songs and out of this world phrases that make this show so funny. Then tie it up with the romance of Ross and Rachel and you have a hit.

Another reunion that I would love to see is the Tanner Clan from Full House. It has been 25 years since the show first aired and even though most of the cast got together for an off-screen reunion this year, it would be nice to see a made for TV movie about where these characters  ended up. Maybe in the movie they can play that sappy music they play at the end of episodes when it gets to real to solve a problem in 30 minutes.

I keep having my fingers crossed for more information about a 24 movie. I loved that show and the characters. Jack is and will always be my favorite CTU agent. They really need to get on the ball and make this movie so I can go on living.

The show I wish to see bring the entire cast together is Buffy The Vampire Slayer. That show is awesome and when it was on I never missed an episode. I know that a lot of the cast has gone on to bigger and better things but it would be nice to return to Sunnydale one more time. This was the one show that I have on DVD still to this day. I guess if I want to see this reunion the closest thing I can get to it is watching How I Met Your Mother. They always have people from the Buffy universe on there.
