Zumba should really come with a warning.

I overslept this morning.  Well I mean, I didn’t get up until around 6:30 which is really late for me.  I’d like to blame it on the diet that MacGyver and I are on but really,  I just wanted to stay in bed this morning.

sleeping in

Yes, this.

When I finally did decide to get up I was still a bit groggy and I should be embarrassed to tell you what I did because unfortunately it isn’t the first time but I’m going to tell you anyway.

I ran the coffee through my kuerig without a cup again, only this time I was actually standing right there as the coffee slowly spilled out onto the counter, and I didn’t notice a thing until the hot liquid actually hit my foot.

Yes, yes it will be.

Then I got on the iPad to play Design Home before getting to work or working out because, priorities.  Unfortunately I realized that I need to make an appointment with the eye doctor because I can’t see well with my contact lenses or my glasses.  I decided to go with the glasses today because they seemed to be the better of the two.

After a half hour of Design Home I felt guilty for not working out because I like to do that first thing in the morning.  After watching a segment on the news about Zumba I had the bright idea to find a Zumba video on Youtube.

I started out like this,

zumba

This is good, I thought, I got this.  So I got a little more into it.

Go girl, go girl

A Pitbull song came on and naturally my tongue sticks out because I am SERIOUS.  And you know that’s what happens when I’m serious.  I was into it now.  This was an awesome workout but so much fun, so I let loose.

I mean really, really loose.

And I think I have serious rhythm because in my mind, I’m JLo!  For real…I’m that good.

zumba dance

Oh yeah, I was into it.

Except, I forgot to move shit out of my way before I started.  And I accidentally hit the bird cage with one of my flailing arms which resulted in me falling slightly backwards and then into and over the coffee table.

And now my glasses look like this,

scratched lenses

So since the scratch is in the middle, I have to push the glasses over to the side and down a bit so that I can see the computer screen.  You know, all crooked like.  A sardonic representation of my morning.

It’s going to be a fabulous day!  Tomorrow I’ll start with an early alarm and a bike ride.

Tell me how your morning started.

There’s a card for that.

Just in case you aren’t sick of silly outtakes, here’s another shot from the famous photo shoot.  You know, the one where mom pretended to be Herb Ritz and I pretended to be Christie Brinkley but we’re both just really awkward….or at least I am.

the Undress

I’ve changed clothes right in the middle of the mall parking lot wearing the Undress and no one had a clue.  It’s genius.  Go get one.

Yesterday, we went to pick out a card for a friend of mine who recently had surgery and I was getting all kinds of pissed off at the poor selection.  There were over 5,000 cards available.  Four were in the ‘Get Well Soon’ section.  FOUR.  But they had all kinds of cards for ‘congratulations on your recent coming out’, ‘welcome to your new gender’, ‘sorry to hear about the loss of your partner’s pet’,(not your pet mind you, but your partner’s pet!)

What the hell? What happened to the typical Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon and Across the Miles cards?  Where did they go?  Of course, just as I was bitching up a blue streak we came across the mack daddy of all cards.  It said, ‘Running is an Accomplishment, Congratulations on your recent race’.

No way!

A running card!  An actually congratulations on your race card!  When did they start printing running cards?  And then I looked at Mom and said the better question is ‘why have you never bought me one?’

Has anyone ever bought you a congratulations on your race card?

Did you know they had congratulations on your race cards?

 

 

Retirement Tennis sounds sexy to me

My Mom is here!  And she has offered to help me take some photos so that I can show you a great product I have a limited discount for.  I’m going to show you those tomorrow.  Let’s hope they turn out.  My Mom is not exactly Herb Ritts.  Unless you’re a family member you probably don’t get that joke to put that into perspective, if you said to my mom, hey could you take a picture of me in front of the Grand Canyon?  She would take the picture and you might get a picture of a cloud and a tiny bit of your cowlick.  Yeah, she’s that good.  But hey, we got all night and I got lot’s of space on the iPhone so stay tuned for that big discount tomorrow.

Over the weekend I went running on the Legacy Trail in Nokomis through Osprey to Sarasota.  It’s a beautiful trail and I will never get tired of running it.  Never.  I’ve seen bobcats and a panther and alligators and all kinds of wildlife not to mention all the runners, walkers and bikers I’ve met.

During my long run this weekend there was a group of bikers and runners headed up by an older couple wearing some official looking gear, carrying all kinds of official looking equipment.  As I ran by the gentleman said to me, ‘great form, keep it up’.  It really made my day and seem to make the miles fly by.  That’s one of the reasons I love running down there.  It’s also one of the reasons that MacGyver and I eventually plan to retire there.  It’s one of a ton of things to do.  If you happen to see that gentleman at the eye doctor this week, tell him I said thanks.

Anyway, MacGyver and I were talking the other night and I said I was really excited about the day we retire and we can actually run and bike and swim and fish and anything else we want to do without having to worry about a schedule.  He agreed.  We also agree that we’ve chosen the perfect area to retire to.  And as it we needed any proof at all, the news came on and we saw this:

So see, we could also play tennis!

Where do plan to retire to?
