Made it to the gym today. Had a VERY busy day and could've easily decided to skip the ole work out, but...I knew it would be a far, far better thing for me to get that work out in. So glad I did!
I'm bummed that I'll need to cancel my gym membership next month. Next school year is going to be exceedingly busy for me, and I know myself...I'm not going to want to rush home after school, supervise daughter's homework, cook/clean/do other household stuff, and THEN go to the gym. I just won't do it. I know myself. Mornings won't work at all... I have GOT to get a treadmill here for the house. But how... I can't do with a cheapo $400 one. Belts aren't wide enough, the machine isn't heavy enough... There's not too many things I'll spend money on... my hair is one of them, and, me thinks...good gym equipment is the other one. I'll shop sales for clothes until my feet are blistered. I'll visit 25 web sites to get the best deal on a hotel. I'll drive an 11 year old mini van. I use coupons at WALMART, for heaven's sake! I wouldn't call myself "cheap," though. "Careful" is more the word I'd use ;~)
Got an email from my best friend of 32 years about our reunion on Saturday. I shared with her that I was feeling less than stellar about myself right now, and that I was hesitant to go. She told me that EVERY person she's talked to about the reunion has expressed similar thoughts about themselves. Seems no one is immune... Inside we're all the same awkward, unsure 12 year old.
FATINAH asked if I'd post a picture of myself dressed for the reunion. (deep breath) Gosh, I don't know. It's so hard to LOOK at myself, especially in a photo. But maybe. No promises. The dress, though...I like it!
