The Gym

In less then a week I will find myself the sole parental caretaker in the house for over a month. In anticipation of my soon burden I've lightened the load by joining a gym that has in house babysitting. For 45 dollars a month I get 90 minutes a day of glorious uninterrupted free time. So far I've taken four Zumba Classes, run 12 miles, and taken six alone showers. I never thought I'd be one to enjoy "group fitness" but running on the treadmill all alone three times a week was starting to get old. I never thought I'd be the kind of person who would like showering in a locker room but two kids that can strip themselves and get over the edge of the tub have mad alone showers a true luxury.

The Cons:
It cost almost 50 bucks a month.
I have to drive there.
Some of the woman do their hair standing in front of the full length mirrors in just panties.

The Pros:
I shower alone.
There is a hot tub and sauna in the ladies dressing room.
I get 90 minutes a day to exercise/get ready that doesn't cut into Jason's schooling.
There are crazy fitness classes that take the edge off just running.
I can work out at eight instead of having to leave at six.
I meet lots of fun moms who are just trying to fit exercise into their lives.

In my opinion it is definitely worth learning to keep your eyes focused about five feet up :)

Moving Day

For those of you wondering where I went...we've moved! We still have the same phone number but our address has jumped from 191 to 134. We are now exhausted but happy to be in our three bedroom town house!
