So, athleticism...

Is not my middle name...hah. My hubby, (who's smoked for the last, what, 15 years??) can outrun me. I mean run circles around me, not just outrun me....lol...I told him I'd tell the blog readers that he did, in fact, beat me with the running, after all my big talk...lol...He neglected tell me that maybe 7 years of baseball way back when might be to blame for his crazy running stamina...so anyways, It got me thinking about my past physical activity (alas, 80's picture of the day numba 4):
You know, ballet is demanding...but it sure is not the same kind of demanding on the lungs that running is...I always considered it a sport, but it's more of an endurance/flexibility/technique thing as it is a get-the-lungs pumping thing....and then I thought, dude...as long as I'm getting up in the morning and working out in some way shape or form, its' better than nothing! Plus, Z distracted me with his bright, bright yellow shorts and crazy 80's arm aerobic moves...he he...so I was cracking up the whole time....we have yet to find him a yellow sweatband, but it'll happen...lol...so that was our fun morning! What's your 'sport of choice'? I really hate sports. I'm much more of a stand-in-the-outfield-and-tan kinda girl...lol....Phys. Ed was hell in junior high and highschool...blah!

Anyways, I'm making a storyboard right now and finishing up some custom-order monsters (cuz within days, I'll not be able to take any other projects/orders/etc. seriously til June)...and wrestling with taxes...we have like 7 days left here to finish em, and it's a lil complicated cuz Z has to file and he's not from here and there's all these extra forms and things we have to do that we just realized...eek! Not too fun...but it'll be over soon! And I should have some scrappage to share soon! =) Happy day!

Don't you just love looking back and things you did/wore/said in the 80's lol, such an 80's kid!!! Can't wait to see what scrappiness you have in store for us to check out next.

LOL! I too was one of those "stand-in-the-outfield-and-get-a-tan" kinda girls too. Running is NOT my thing, but just talk to Sally Hanna and that girl can talk you into almost anything.lol.

And I thought just getting out of the bed in the morning counts as physical activity?Hmph. LOL.

Funny! PE and I were definitely not friends as well. Lovin' the 80s pics. It's fun seeing little flashbacks.

Those pics are soo sweet! I was a ballet girl too! And DONT feel bad about not keeping up with z, i seriously have NO stamina when it comes to running, but I was a dancer all my life, ha!

Michelle said...

I hope all the taxes get sorted out. Love the ballerina photos! I love to run but haven't really done it since the new year. I love basketball too. :D
