its *wednesday...

and I am just now, *finally recovering from Saturday Night's activities! My cousin (in-law... Paul's cousin) is getting married November 15th. For her *girls in the wedding party, instead of buying us jewelry, she decided to have a Pole Dancing Class from Pole Divas. I have to say, I had tons and tons and tons of fun (after the inital 'no-way-am-I-getting-my-big-'ol-self-up-there' mentality... btw, thank goodness for tequila rose! hehe). Anyway, having a small-but-distinct background of cheerleading and dance, I was all for it! Um, yeah.... can I just tell you that I could run every day for an hour, for an entire year, and *still not get the workout I did on that pole! Believe me, it was more workout than sexual (although, we did learn a few 'nice-girl' stripper moves), but it was a TON-OF-FUN and I can't wait to go to a class or host my own party (after running every day an hour a day... hehe! I gotta work up that cardio!!!)

also...

on my mind lately... i've been going through some 'troubling times'. with Daddy going through cancer, and my sister getting a divorce, life has been a wee-bit stressful. so I've been trying to find things to inspire (or occupy) my mind. I have to say, that Kadi and Bridget (two gals I've known since HS) have been *such an inspiration to me, in more ways than one. I don't know if it is because I know them, but Kadi's humor and candidness (i may have made that word up) about life, children, life, marriage, life, people, life, medication, and life, along with her honesty really put things into a (sometimes altered, hehe) perspective that I truly need, and make the day enjoyable. Bridget is a girl I have always had *tons of respect for. To read her daily living with her kids, homeschooling (which in my book makes her a super-hero), her hubby (my hubby's Irish-brother... or something like that, right? hehe) just her personality... makes me realize that we are all mothers, and parents doing the very best we can with what we got. and that's really all that we can do. :-)
