Blame it on the rain Thursday

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.

I am with Gymrat on the teenage daughter thing...I still feel like a teenager...I can't be the grownup. Lat week a child was throwing a fit in the ladies locker room at the gym...we don't have many kids around but a few take swimming lessons. I was sooo happy I am childless...but thn onight I saw a commercial with n adorable child, and I was all 'ooooo'. But my ship has sailed, so I'vs missed the joys of parenthood....I love leggings...I wear them a lot, although not o work, and I love the look. I don't wear boots - I can't find a flat pair with a zipper at a price I am wiling to pay....I look, because thy look so great on other people, but I always end up passing on them. I can't point my foot deep enough to get most pairs on, if that makes any sense. And Gymrat, 'prison on prednisone' cracked me up...it bothers me a lot how many people are incarcerated, and I feel like it is such a MIS allocation of resources...that somehow we don't put money into solving poverty and providing education and preventing ubstance abuse, but we are willing to warehouse people. The thought of being locked up just panics me, and yet I know there are whole sections of society where being in prison is just a way of life. what an incredibly difficult job to do....I went to the gym, lifted for shoulders, bis, tris, ran 2 miles.
