Friday Free for All

• I am off today! I will be dropping the kids off with my mother shortly, and she will keep them until tomorrow. Hub and I are going to do something, but we aren’t exactly sure what. Maybe a long country drive. Definitely a good dinner out. Probably some Christmas shopping. Tomorrow we’ll have a bit of time together before I go get the kids and he heads off to a job. Maybe we’ll go to Panera for breakfast.
• While shopping for the finishing touches of my Crappy Day Package, I scored a few of these melamine plates on clearance for $.62 each. I would really like to go and scour Target endcaps across my area to see if I can find more. LOVE them.

• I also bought a second blanket for our bed. Because seriously…screw that shit.
• I was talking to Hub the other day, about how I really just hate the monotony of the gym and how I don’t work hard when I’m there because I am bored. I told him I wish I could somehow feel about my regular work out the way I do about Zumba, which is head over heels in love. It’s challenging. I sweat. I feel my blood pumping. I legitimately need a shower afterward. He looked at me like I was crazy and told me to find some daytime Zumba classes and cancel the gym membership. It was a total “well, duh” moment for me. I mean seriously. Although finding classes during the day without having a gym membership at one of the big fancy gyms that holds classes, is proving to be hard. There are millions in the evenings, but I don’t want to go at night. I need to work out in the morning. So, I don’t know. Do you think I would get as much out of doing a DVD? I really want a class.
• Has anyone else noticed how hard it is to buy Christmas pajamas for boys, once they are over the age of 4? I got the most adorable sets for the girls, and had horrible luck for Bud. Lands End came through for me though. Here is what I got the girls from Gymboree:

And this is what I got for Bud:

• I ordered my Christmas cards this week, and they will be here soon! I am pleased with how they turned out. I feel ahead of the game this year. We’ll see how long it lasts. We’ll see how many gifts I buy today.

I am beginning to think that EVERYONE ELSE'S target end caps are better than mine. Cute jammies!

I love those dishes.

Do you have a college near you? Our college has daytime Zumba classes. Also, I have the Wii Zumba games on my wish list. I'll get back to you about how they are.

Hold out for the classes. DVDs = the suck.

I wish I could do Zumba with you. I don't have anybody to go with.

Love you.

In my area the gyms charge 5 bucks per Zumba class. That way if you go like twice a week you are still coming out cheaper than paying for a full membership. Don't try DVDS. They get boring quickly and you don't stay motivated.
Call around and see if there are any classes. If not, express an interest in an early morning class. There has to be more people willing to show up for it. (In one of our smaler towns they have an aerobics class at 5am. So there has to be a demand for early Zumba classes)
