BOY dad Alfie Patten yesterday admitted he does not know how much nappies cost - but said: "I think it's a lot."
Baby-faced Alfie, who is 13 but looks more like eight, became a father four days ago when his girlfriend Chantelle Steadman gave birth to 7lb 3oz Maisie Roxanne.
He told how he and Chantelle, 15, decided against an abortion after discovering she was pregnant.

Epic fail on starting yesterday. Tonight, though, I succeeded: I worked the allocated daily hour and tossed several hefty bags. Heck, you can actually see the results of my work.
One trash day of work done. 3.5 cups of bold coffee sans soy. I'll take it black tonight, thank you.

Specifically, I cannot perform aerobics, my favorite form of exercise. Sharp, stabbing pains shoot up as my foot hits the floor. With a sad wave and face, I told my instructor tonight I would no longer be attending her class. We waved, and I bolted home to shower and contemplate my next move.
I still plan to work out. Like 99.9% of Americans, getting into shape is one of my (numerous) new year's resolutions. How I get in shape will have to change, though. Thankfully I have tons of books, magazine, and online articles on fitness.
Still, I will miss those workouts.

Gifts from my sibs. Lots of gift certs. And candy. Bad, bad! Squee!
Hot chocolate made by my sweetie. Overall, 4.5 cups of mocha chocolate. Soy, of course.
Carpe Diem (seize the day)
|I remember reading years ago that one technique to organizing one's tasks is to hit the day's hard tasks first, then the easy stuff. Most folks, especially procrastinators, do it in reverse, stressing themselves at the end of the day.|
I'm definitely in the "easy stuff first, hard stuff later" category. Thus, first resolution change for the new year is reversing that mantra.
After the first cup of today's coffee, though.
