Dove.. the philosopher

one thing I love about working with people with children is left over halloween candy!

today I unwrapped a Dove chocoloate with this sweet little message...

Decorate your life.

It can mean lots of different things, just fun and whimsical.

Happy Veterans Day!
remember you live in... the home of the free, because of the brave!

it's fun to -cycle- at the...

Y.M.C.A.. la-la-la-la-di-dah.. that is about as much as I know.

But, because of a wondeful 16 MILLION dollar donation, I can work out a gorgeous gym at a income-fixed price. It was formerly a rehabilitation center that was donated to the Young Men's Christian Association [in case you have forgotten] a little while ago.

They have Zumba, Cycling, Yoga, Body Pump etc etc etc. classes. I am particularly excited about Zumba, mainly because it is in a wood-floor-no-mirror gym that I can go to with some of the wonderful girls I have met here. And with the no mirrors I will not feel inhibited & just have fun!

I joined the gym for those reasons but also because on February 15th, 2009 I am running a half marathon for breast cancer. I committed a little over a month ago and did not really want to tell anyone until I reached my 5 mile point. And I just did! And now that it is dark when I leave work [which I despise] I cannot run outside/on the beach anymore [which I also despise] because it is not safe [shocker, but I despise that too!]

Alma Matter this weekend for a football game with some of the bests from home, and mrs.sissy & spency!
