Hope the birthday parties go well, shanti and lofty!
Yesterday was DS's school fieldtrip to the museum of nature and science, which was better than last year's trip with the kindergarten, thank goodness! I had three kids in my group, including DS, and they actually listened to me. They had planned for us to go to the planetarium to watch a movie, which was great...took about 45 minutes that I didn't have to chase 6 year olds around! I think it's great that they do these field trips, I just wish they had a little more structure to them, like a scavenger hunt, or things they need to find the answers to or something. Instead they just drop us off and let us go wander, which probably works a lot better with older kids. Nonetheless, it was a pretty good field trip. And then I worked a high school basketball game last night for the first time in probably two years...I had to do a knee eval and was reaching back into the depths of my brain, ha. Sweaty high school boys are not quite the same as postpartum moms and babies!
rr~Nothing yesterday, thanks to the field trip, so I did double duty at the Y today, spin class followed by a run. Spin was a great workout, but the instructor likes to play dance/techno music. The beat is good, but I much prefer songs that I can sing along to, ya know? Or even songs that at least have words! I swear, I'm not *that* picky...just please no bluegrass or Willie Nelson or techno...heck, I don't mind the one instructor who likes to do seasonal themes and has been known to do a whole class with nothing but patriotic marches. John Phillip Sousa for spin class? Sure! I followed up spin with about 25 minutes on the hamster wheel, which actually felt pretty decent.
