Aaaaaarrgghh...I couldn't get in yesterday, despite my several attempts.  Yesterday, I went to the gym for early morning yoga, and there was no instructor!  I was the only one to stay to do my own yoga workoutEat first thing this morning, I have an intervention" of sorts.  Three managers and four employees.  Amy manager is the least tenured, so I am worried I am going to be thrown to the wolves.  I am over prepared, researching things, talking to my peers and a more tenured manager on what to expect, and how to behave.  Since I still fear abusive behavior, this should be a good test of my poker playing skills.  This one rep is out of control, and it seems that she is valued by her manager.  :(. Pup training tonight if I have the energy.

Good luck Fresh, it sounds very nerve wracking!

I have a fairly mild day planned. The kids are in their last few weeks of school and I just need to work on record keeping. We are going to have summer-like temps today so I'm grabbing the granddaughter and heading to the  park later on. 

Starting next week I am working on my daughter's baby shower decorations. I have set myself a budget on the gifts I want to get her for the baby. lol Between me and his mother, I don't think they are going to want for anything.  I don't know if I told you or not but I got this for my daughter: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2401895 after I had a couple of young mothers at the gym tell me about it and they said it was great for co-sleeping. It looks like a great idea.

Holy cow.  I can finally get in.  Jean and FSN - I sent you a FB message this morning.  What a mess.  I probably spent a half hour just trying to post today.  It seems like the problem is with the log-in.  After I'd log in and try to post, it would either send me back to the log-in page or tell me I was unauthorized to post.  What a pain.  I hope they are fixing this.  If I didn't enjoy you ladies so much, I think I'd have given up long ago. 

I'm off today and doing a bunch of things around the house.  Working on my Spanish, starting my textbook for my CEC's, and bunch of little odds and ends.  I don't have to go anywhere today which is rather nice.  Planning to do a strength training workout too.

Whew, finally!  My fingers are getting their workout logging in. I know, first world problems.  FSN, your work place sounds so stressful!  I have to hand it to you for being able to handle it and all its frustrations.  Karla, you did post the co-sleeper and I think it's an awesome gift.  It's how I got any sleep-so easy for nursing and all.  I think someone needs to make a baby bidet next.  GR, I feel the same way about needing the fix here. I think the Running Women board left because it was so frustrating.  What CECs are you doing?  I have way too many but there is a workshop on working w/ overweight/obese individuals that looks really good.  I'd be happy just being in pt college.

Nothing on my schedule today!  I had a dentist appointment and am free. I'm going to bake cupcakes.  Oh, I don't know if I talked about my tooth hurting and thinking I'd cracked it.  The dentist told me I had a pocket w/in a root canal that is inflamed. He recommended doing nothing for now, especially since it's getting better. If it gets worst, he might have to do surgery and the last resort is losing the tooth.  My mom warned me that everyone she knows who has had a root canal eventually loses the tooth.  Maybe all the root canal does is buy you some years. Mine has been 12 years now.

It's a correspondence course for advanced program design.  Some of the workshops I see look interesting but my social life and time with family takes precedence on weekends.

I'm still working on my Corrective Exercise Specialist certification from NASM. I can't get motivated to study and have to pass by August or it expires.  Darn internet.

I am in NJ...the waitres keeps calling me 'dear'. On Saturday, after Zumba, two young ills, at least one of them there for the first time, told me something like 'you were really moving out there'. Since I know I am bad at Zumba, I know they were being kind...perhaps even a tiny bit patronizing...but kind. I feel old....but I went to the hotel gym, 15. Minutes on bike, lifting for shoulders, bis, and tris. They have a great pool, but I did not bring my swim suit. I squally only stay one night and don't get a chance to work out. I am contemplating going to he mall next door o look for a swimsuit...but I probably won't. Karla- it sounds like you are an awesome grandmother. FSN -I am still appalled that you re being aked to confront a peer...that is management's job. Gymrat - your life always sounds fun.. Jean, I think in the end, if we live long enough, we'll all still e toothless...my mother had all of her teeth pulled when she was 21 - she was a depression era baby and no money went or dentists. Money was spent for me to go to the dentist when there was little money, so I feel obligated to keep up with regular visits. My mother struggled with false teeh all my life, and even in her last days, she hated to be seen ith out them. Of everything of hers I had to deal with, throwing those away was probably the saddest. She loved to laugh, and she had a great mile.

When young people compliment me these days as workouts go, I always add in my head, "For an old lady..." because I know that's what they're implying.  I remember telling older women how awesome it was that they could do military push ups--it really is awesome but in my head, it was more so because they were in their 60's, 70's.  They didn't seem insulted but maybe they did the same thing I do!
