Hi there :)

Thank the Gods that LJ is back to normal. It was driving me crazy that I couldn't comment. It's not so much that I *want* to post a whole lot, it's more being *able* to, should I get the urge. I really felt terribly cut off from all of you.

Which circumstance asia_2 and sunhawk16 shamelessly abused to have a party - without me! - in my LJ. ^^

Not that there's much in the way of news. I'm still keeping up with my exercise and dieting program. I'm down to 92.2 kg by now. I'm taking it easy, because weight lost swiftly tends to return rather rapidly.

I did notice that I feel much more awake and aware after I finish my exercise. I think when you lose weight, you don't just lose it on your hips or tummy, you also lose the fat that gets stuck between your ears. At least I tend to feel that way. The more I lose, the more active in my life I become again.

Did yardwork today. I finally went out and bought a lawn trimmer (is that what it's called in english, too?). It looks like this: Garden Trimmer Even though it's not that heavy, it still takes strength to carry and move around. So now my arms feel like I've bench lifted my couch all day, and my hands refuse to work properly. I also burned the inside of my right wrist while adjusting the spool. *sigh*

I'd like to paint, but I'm going to have to wait until my hands function properly again. ^^;

I've started watching Naruto while doing my exercise in the morning. Since I have the japanese version, I'm getting all the good stuff. I compared it with the german version, and there's pretty much nothing left! O.o They cut out so much, I'm surprised they manage to get a whole episode together...
It's an interesting series. I didn't think that I would like it, but I'm already seeing that there's a whole lot more story behind it all than what's seen on the surface. I like that. ^^

Tomorrow, Zizi goes back to school. I almost didn't see her in these two weeks. She spent the first up in Cuxhaven with a friend, and then part of this one in Kempten with another. Still, I'll miss her when she goes off tomorrow afternoon. ^^ Even though she's starting to show signs of heading into puberty. Oh well...

Wanted to go see PoTC3, but I refuse to go with her, if she hasn't finished all her homework. So I guess we will be going next week. Maybe.

Aside from that, I've been busy. Next manga is due and the printer is having problems with his machine. *sigh* Also have a distributor who sells to the comic shops now. But you know, they take *50 %*! It's a wonder there's anything left over for me. And then we have to plan for the next convention. Flyers, coupons, mangas, posters... *sigh* Lots to do...

I'm *so* looking forward to my vacation in August this year!

*hugs all*

Nah, I'm not hard on her. I've know that she's a *very* sociable and communicative child from early on and have adjusted to that. It's just... this little pang in my heart occasionally, when I see her grow more and more. *sigh* Sometimes I wish she'd stay small and sweet forever. But, as you say, it's the way of things.

At least, she still comes to me when she needs help or hugs. :)

Just be glad she didn't go down the raver road. CP has pictures of his daughter at 5 -- blonde hair, blue eyes, little pink tutu... and the kid-sized black Harley Davidson shirt he got for her. I tell him, that kind of combination should've been a sign.

All pretty dresses and pink, pink, pink; he took her to see Swan Lake, Nutcracker, even the balletic version of Romeo & Juliet. Then she turned 13 and whammo, it's all oversized blue jeans and demands for a tongue piercing and rumor has it she didn't wear a skirt (let alone a dress!) from 15 through 19. Sometimes he finds pictures of her as a kid and gets all quiet and bummed for awhile.

I never know what to do, when he's feeling that bittersweetness.

Thank the Gods! No, not the raver road. Though she did change her taste in clothing. When I still had *some* say, it was pinks and pastels and glitter. Now, since she started picking out her own stuff, it's camo, olive, brown and black. *sigh*

I guess it's part of being a parent, that bittersweetness. You watch them grow, and walk their own path, and you wish you could just freeze them at the perfect moment and keep them from change and harm forever. *big sigh* It's the way it is...
