What's new?

Shiny and new
This week's Friday Five link up is themed 'What's new?'

What's new indeed.

I would like to tell you: a lot! But since the kids are home from school, life has kind of grinded to a halt. There's not much new stuff going on. I'm simply trying to ride the waves of my life, trying not to fall off life's surfing board.

So I've been sitting here wrecking my brain for something new.

I really had to scrape the barrell but I've managed to come up with 5 new things! Here we go!

1. New Playlist

I've created a new playlist! One of the new songs I run is:

 'I turned 21 in prison doing life without parole. No one could steer me right, but momma tried, momma tried. Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading, I denied. That leaves only me to blame 'cos Mama tried.'

What I love so much about this song is that it's not the Mother's fault! This man firmly puts the blame where it belongs: himself.

2. I bought two new bras

I bought two new bras that were a real bargain: originally they cost 40 bucks, and I got them for 12!  I'd been walking around with my left breast higher than the right one because I have lost the underwire of the right cup. But now they're equal again.

3. New attitude

I'm trying to be all Buddhist about the messiness that goes with Summer Vacation. I try to relax and not mind the big mess that is now my home. After all, it's vacation time. That's a whole new attitude for me. Normally I fret and worry and resist 'what is'...

4. New book
I'm reading a new book: Sisterland: A Novel. About two sisters who have psychic abilities. And even though I've got the attention span of a toddler, I like it!

5. New appreciation for my elliptical machine

I'm starting to really appreciate my elliptical machine! I often use it after a run, to give myself that final push. And as I stumble off afterwards I feel all mellow and relaxed. I don't even mind the kids anymore.

I totally laughed about your bra situation lol! I'm glad you found some new ones for a great price :)

Yay for new sports bras! Where did you find them at? I'm in love with my Moving Comforts!

The lopsided bra made me laugh. I'm glad you got that straightened out. See what I did there? ;)

Yeah! I love a good pun!

Shame on me, but I didn't buy a sports bra. I just replaced my frayed, lopsided normal bras.

I am too Helly! My breasts look much better now that they're even.

I do love the elliptical (and so do my knees).

Great deal on the new bras! That book sounds interesting, I'll have to add it to my 'to read' book list.
