As noted in my April goals recap, I went to the gym to workout every weekday that month.

Considering how little I was at the gym up to that point, that’s damned impressive to me. That was 22 gym visits in a month, which is about 18 more visits than I had the entire previous year. For the first time in a long time, I’m getting my membership’s worth. Katie, too, for the record.

That streak continued into May. Every weekday.

Until today.

I woke up this morning and my left eye felt like I was blinking across razor blades. It legitimately hurt. Eye drops couldn’t clear it. Repeated blinking did nothing.

So I skipped my workout because glasses and cardio don’t mix for me at all. The scratchiness didn’t abate until about 2 p.m. It sucked. Try staring at a computer screen all day for work with your eyeball on fire. It’s fun!

Yeah, so my streak is broken, but I knew it would happen soon because we’re going on vacation. It just happened sooner than expected.

But I’ll kinda make up for it in a half hour when I tune into AppleTV+ for this…


Does it count when I let someone else do the workout for me?

Mister Nathan’s Dad. That’s me. Not Mr. Apgar. Not Kevin. Not Mr. Kevin. Not even “you,” which would allow some semblance of an identity of my own. I am “Mr. Nathan’s Dad.” I am my son’s father. Well, I guess...

The first full trailer for Wicked is finally here and, dare I say, it looks wicked! Katie and I have seen Wicked on stage in Chicago and it was mind blowing. We were privileged to see Ana Gasteyer from Saturday...
