I'm still here. Just low on energy lately and thus quieter than usual. Random factoids:
I got a flu shot on Tuesday. My arm is still a little tender but I only really notice it when I'm rolling over in bed.
Wednesday is my double workout day, but only for another week. creed_of_hubris
and I signed up for line dancing lessons through the community ed program. We're now on week seven of eight. Our classes have about 20 people, are held in a school cafeteria, and are taught by a husband and wife team. She demonstrates and talks us through the dances with a headset microphone at the front of the class and he changes the CDs and reports on our progress at the back of the class, letting her know whether we're getting it or whether she needs to go through it again. I'm really enjoying the classes but I suspect creed_of_hubris
is mostly humoring me. After we were already signed up for that, they started a lunchtime yoga class at work and I wanted to try that too. I have some yoga videos but had never taken a class before. Unfortunately, the class is much too advanced for me. It assumes strength and flexibility I don't have and while the instructor does suggest some modifications, her suggestions are largely still above what I can do. So I end up pretty sore afterwards. But I'm figuring out my own modifications and I'm going to keep trying it for another month. I'd be better off with a beginner's class, but the convenience of having a class right at work is very attractive and worth putting up with some frustration. The line dancing class ends next week, so after that I'll be down to one workout per Wednesday.
I think I'm getting used to the annoying back-up beep on the Prius. creed_of_hubris
and I went out for Thai food after dance class this week and when I started up the car and put it in gear I hesitated because something was wrong. It didn't sound right. Then I realized that I had parked so that I could pull out the front of a space, rather than backing out, and the reason the car didn't sound right was because it wasn't beeping. So I think that answers the question of whether I'd get used to the beep.
