I really totally hate swim meets. They suck up the entire weekend, and take away from everything else I’m trying to accomplish. I just spend the last two mornings from 7 till noon at the damn swimming pool and those days were Saturday and Sunday. It’s just not right, to suck up that much time from parents who have other things to do in their lives. I mean, really, is it all that necessary. It’s supposed to be a friggin leasure activity that’s good for your health. It’s exercise. Instead, here I am sleep deprived for the last bunch of days due to swim meets, and it’s 8:30 at night, and I’m barely awake, and I’m trying to finish off this friggin morning journal, which should have been done hours ago. And, likely, someone is going to come down stairs, and want to know why I’m writing nasty things about swim meets, when they think I should be supporting them, because it’s what my kids want to do. Well, when do people decide to start supporting me in the things I want to do. When do people decide to stop eating crap around me all the time. Oh, and yes, I get to drive Jessica all the way to Strathroy, and have Jessica’s ears looked at tomorrow. We live in the fucking friggin medical centre of south western ontario, and I have to drive half an hour to fucking strathroy to get her ears checked out. What a damn waste of time. Why can’t I just go to a damn hospital in London for crying out loud. Geeze, these weekends are getting stressful for me. It’s like I need an entire day to decompress from dealing with all of their crap. At one point do you get to in life, when everyone around you stops placing demands on your life, and start doing things for you? I’m pretty tired of dealing with other peoples shit. And, samantha no longer, has a provincal time, but I wonder, what she would do to get it back. I wonder what it would take for her to get it back. It’s not all that hard. It’s not like curing cancer, and child birth for crying out loud. Ahh heck, now I’m quoting the whole30 document. Sure, if she stopped eating crap for 30 days, and stuck to a mostly paleo diet and eat super clean, her performance would go up in the gym, in the swimming pool, and at the swim meets. She could get her provincial time back. The entire family should do the whole30 for the month of March. They’re all getting sicker and sicker with their unhealthy eating habits, and I’m getting tired of it. Jennifer suggested, that if I actually did all the shopping and cooking, on the condition that karen and jessica and everyone else gave up the crappy food for a day, that karen would probably go for it. That would take some serious planning. I should check out the shopping list on the whole30 website. I wonder, if they have a menu planning section that could be modified to work with our schedule? I believe, this would get sams provincial time back. I believe, it would help Karen’s joint and knee pain. Maybe even cure her arthritis. But, how do you get them to buy into it. The offer of all the shopping, and all the cooking would be inticing to Karen for sure. Getting rid of all the crap in the house would be a big help. Just dumping all that crappy stuff into a big garbage bag, would certainly make me feel better. Could you imagine, having an entire cupboard full of nothing but healthy to eat food. Knowing, that every cupboard you opened, would have food that was ok for you to eat would be amazing. I wouldn’t have to worry, about not having stuff that was good to eat in the house. Would they go for it? That would be an interesting question to ask. If I printed off the document, then gave it to them each to read, and told them not to say anything to anyone about it, until I made them the above offer. The offer to do all the cooking and shopping for the next 30 days and see what happens. It could be interesting. It would take a bunch of extra work on my part, and some determination on their part. But, it could be done. I’m sure. It would be quite the expirement.
