Zumba Time

Yesterday I tried Zumba for the first time, I convinced my workout partner, Kay, that we needed to do this. Wow, that is all I can say, well actually not, I am going to say a lot. I finally got it by those endorphins everyone is always going on about. I loved it! It was not like exercise at all, it was an hour of dancing. I haven’t sweat that much in, well, a long time. This morning I could barely get out of bed, my legs and arms hurt so much. We will be doing the class every Tuesday and Thursday, it was just a blast! High energy, low impact fun. There was a woman in there that wore this scarf thing around her waist that had all of these jingle thingies on it, I want one. I need one. I want to jingle when I shimmy. Let me tell you, I didn’t know what I was doing, at times I was lost, but I just kept moving, and figured the more I went the more I would get the steps. I probably looked like a big ol’ donkey, and I didn’t care, still don’t.
Elizabeth Anne has gotten me hooked on a new game, it is a drawing game, for those of you who know me really well, you know that I do not draw well. So it is funny as all get out, I laugh so hard at my own drawings. Elizabeth sent me a text last night that said “What the hell is that” out of sheer frustration at her mother’s drawing ability. For the record it was a cat pouncing. the word was pounce.
Happy Wednesday, the week is going slow, I blame the time change, I am hoping the weekend goes slow as well. Saturday I am volunteering at a Susan G. Komen event, I don’t know what I am going to be doing, but I am sure it is going to be a fun time. I have to be there at 7am, that I didn’t know I had volunteered for until Wanda sent me an email telling me the specifics. I will have to remember to set my alarm Friday night, I am very excited, I do this in memory of Sandi and in honor of all of my friends battling breast cancer.
This morning, the Irishman made my coffee, I love it when he does that, his coffee tastes so yummy! Wednesday is off to a good start!

  1. I was reading the article on my MSN Homepage about Barbara Walters stating on Twitter that the Bachelor reality show was an insult to women. In the article it mentions your Twitter name & that you tweeted that the show was an insult to “humanity.” Actually it was a retweet from TV Guide. That doesn’t matter though because I decided to check out your Twitter page. I thought the things you posted & people you follow posted were awesome! So, I also checked out your Blog here. I am a writer also & I think your writing is excellent! Not only what you say; but, also the topics you write about. I very recently started to take days off from the Internet because of what I read on Bernie Taupin’s Blog http://www.BernieTaupin.com If you don’t recognize his name, he is the person who has always written the lyrics for every one of Sir Elton John’s songs; while Elton has written all the music. Bernie said on his Blog that the Internet & all these electronic gadgets are stealing everyone’s ingenuity to create. He is a Lyricist, a Poet, and now he is well known for his fabulous Abstract paintings! I know you would love his Blog too! He is a brilliant guy who is also very funny. So, basically, because of what he wrote about losing our ingenuity to create, I changed my life. I went to Grad school online 7 days a week for 3 1/2 years which really got me addicted to the Internet. I want to say that what you write on your Blog are things that I can truly relate to! My guy is also an Irishman who does not want to even go near a computer because he sees, I guess, how addictive it can be. He’d rather spend time on his job helping others & being with people in person rather than typing to people on a computer which as you know is very different. So, I really enjoy your Blog & wish to subscribe. You can check me out on Twitter; Facebook; & whatever else (I belong to many social sites). You could Google my name: Laura M. Bernard. I would like to Friend you if you are on Facebook (I didn’t check yet) because from a Writer to a Writer; I like what you write very much. Have a great day!
