Young Man

Guess what my husband got me for my birthday? Go ahead guess. You'll never guess...

A membership to the YMCA!

That's right despite all those hundreds of tips for boyfriends and husbands, he went ahead and got me what I did really, really wanted. No, it's not because he thinks I'm fat or even that he thinks I need to be in better shape. He got it for me because it's what I wanted.

And why did I want a gym membership? So I could get a little of that 'me' time I've so been craving. Plus, with free childcare and wifi, I may never actually have to set foot on a treadmill.

So, if you need me, I'll be enjoying a leisurely swim followed by an uninterrupted shower. I wonder if they have cushy chairs just right for reading a book?

Who knows I might actually try to get a work-out in every now and then.

Good for you...and good for Adrian! Don't you love it when they really listen.

I totally get it. My birthday/christmas wish this year - a new dishwasher. :)

Hope your birthday is a FABULOUS one. Sounds like it's on that track!

Hooray! Wyatt will be happy to have a friend in the Playhouse, and I will be happy to have a friend to possibly motivate me to step it up a little!! See you there!

I didn't realize the YMCA had childcare for our kids' ages! I wonder if the one on Hillsbourgh does; if so, I'm going to have to join, because I would love nothing more than an uninterrupted shower! lol!

AND happy birthday! Yay!
