It's been pouring out! If it has to rain, I wish there would be thunderstorms but it's just long rain. I went to aerial silks last night to a class I haven't done in months. The instructor was a riot. He's barely taller than I am, about as wide as he is tall, heavy accent and amazing at silks. I couldn't get over his power and strength. He taught us this new move and I did my normal brute force to get through. He talked to us about how silks should look effortless and when the audience is watching they want to think it looks easy. He said, "They don't want to see this!" as he grimaced and torqued his arms and body in awkward ways and said, "ow... ow...uhhh." Yeah, that's about it. My daughter decided to go to class. She likes the idea of doing silks but not enough to work at it. The problem for her is that she doesn't have the strength, and she doesn't want to work on it to get better. So, she just fooled around w/ the few things she can do and left grumpy. Grumpier than usual. Tell me again I'm going to get through the teen girl years. Hey, is there a support board? We need that at iVillage. "Surviing the teen girl years."
I'm teaching step this morning and then have an advice client. I'm going to a CABi party tonight. Has anyone been/gone? It's clothes. I normally don't like these kind of parties but this friend told me she only had a handful of women say they're coming so I said I'd go.
