Meet the Enemy

Meet the enemy. My enemy.

It's our newly installed chin-up bar over the shop door in our basement.

I was so excited for Peanut Head to install this thing because all my life I've wanted to be able to do a chin-up.

Except all my life I never wanted anyone watch me attempt to do a chin-up.

So now I can do that chin-up in the privacy of my own home. Alone. By myself.

It's a good thing I was so cautious, because I can't do a chin-up to save my life.

Not even one inch.

Or one millimeter.

It's so sad.

The thing is, I am going to do a chin-up.

I will not be beat by the chin-up bar. I won't. I just won't.

It might kill me, but I'm going to do at least one chin-up dang it. Or maybe even 10.

So, right here, right now, I'm exclaiming to all the world (or at least the 17 people who read this blog) that I am going to conquer that chin-up bar in 2009.

I am going to haul my roundish carcass up and over that bar and let out a rebel yell.

Watch out Billy Idol, I might flatten you on my way down.


  1. Hmmm, brings new meaning to the term, Chin up!!......and by the way, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

  8. I'm so excited for you!!! Whenever it seems like you can't do just say (or scream, whatever you prefer) "I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR!!!" LOL! ;)

  9. Oh is that the Mattie that I know? I love the Mattie that I kind of know. HA!

    Oh Jill, good luck to ya! I am rooting from afar.

    I have a chin up bar too. I ignore it.
