70 Days of Sweat, Day Sixty: 1,100 words. There actually are sixteen days left in the 70 Days of Sweat Challenge, despite the fact that it is day sixty, because it was set up so that there were seven "vacation" days built in. Day seventy-seven will be May 15th.

Total: 49,200 words.

Current story (untitled): 4,100 words.

In other news: Tomorrow morning Innes will have his kindergarten visit, so that they'll know whether or not they should turn him away for another year he'll know what kindergarten is like before he starts in September.

Fitness report: I tried something different today--a stair-climbing device that's like going up the down escalator. Variety is good. I went on that for half an hour at level 1, since I didn't know how hard it would be. Next time I'll conquer level 3, I think.

Random story about kindergarten. There was a little guy in the class I was helping with who had terrible separation problems.

He'd go fetal in the entryway (where his parents would dump him) but after a bit of crying would sort himself out, get up and hang up his backpack and come join the rest of the kids on their carpet spots almost as if nothing had occurred previously.

One time his not-too-bright parents evidently didn't get him to the classroom and he was located hiding behind some toy storage bins in the playground area outside.

What seemed to cure this problem was a talk with parents (actually the mom), the discovery that perhaps an alarm clock (for the parents) might help and that the youngster would be delivered earlier than the opening of the classroom so he could hang out on the bench outside of the classroom with all his other classmates. A bonding moment so to speak.

After that, no more separation problems.

Of course once he started making headway, his parents pulled him from the class permanently. Perhaps that alarm clock and "early" delivery business was too much.

None of this relates to you (nor is it meant to relate to you) but I thought you might find it an interesting story none the less.

Hopefully I haven't told this story before. I do that now and then. :)
