Whirl wind week

What a whirl-wind week this has been. Nothing special, just our crazy life. I went to the gym a few times. Today I totally lapped the old guy pulling the oxygen tank behind him on the walking track. I think I'm getting faster! I even passed up the woman who was hoping to have her baby today. (She might have even been in labor) And here is an observation. What is the deal with old people getting dressed up to go to the gym? There were so many little old ladies there, walking the track, most of them wearing slacks and sweaters. One lady had on a ribbed turtleneck sweater that looked like it should have been worn skiing. I don't get it. And the little old men wear nice button down shirts, slacks and dress shoes. Maybe, I'm not really at the rec center after all, maybe in the morning hours they turn it into a senior single's mix and mingle.


  1. You made me laugh out loud. Thanks for bringing some humour into MY crazy day!

  2. That totally cracked me up. I'll have to come walk with you sometime : ) I have done nothing since January. Sorry I missed your call, thanks for thinking of us. I've just been running around getting things together. I think we are totally packed and I just have a couple papers to pick up Monday and then we'll be out of here!! I had been worried about leaving the kids at the beginning of the week and now I'm just excited to go get the kids and get home! : )

  3. Grats on the successful workout in the gym!!! Last time I ran a 5K, I struggled to keep up with some old guy. It does wonders for my self-esteem.

    BTW, I think older people can wear those nice clothes to the gym because they don't really work up a sweat like we young 'uns do. ;)
