Things I've learned today

1. I knew my class's presentations would probably be pretty good, but in reality? THEY ROCKED. I can't wait to see what else they come up with as the semester progresses.

2. On the day when you say to yourself "I'll just wait til the manny gets here to get dressed, put on makeup, etc." the manny will run late and you will not have time to straighten your hair. You will also forget to bring your yoga pants and t-shirt to work with you and will end up wearing your dress shirt, heels and a pair of your husband's pajama pants to do stage combat. (see next note)

3. I am SO about to turn 32. And I'm feeling it. Marcus has a studio-type stage combat drop-in session that he does on Tuesdays outside his regularly scheduled combat class (which meets the same time as my arts administration class). He asked me to come and help him teach it. (Didn't know I was a swordfighter, didja???) We did multiple drills with footwork for the first time today. And now I may die. How did I do this 5 times a week in my 20s? Because I was IN MY

It hurts to type, so I have to go lie down. Yow.

EDITED TO ADD (7:52am on Wednesday): You know, I'm not that sore! My legs were trembling for over an hour when I got home yesterday from muscle fatigue and I have the requisite right buttock soreness that only swordfighting can provide, but all in all, it's not really that bad. And Dean slept through the night, which didn't hurt either!

You should get on Manny for being late :) - or at least blame him for everything for a few days :)

I wonder how I did somethings while in college - I get tired a lot faster now-a-day!

Wish I could have been there to see you. Your ensemble sounds lovely. :)

Did you dock Manny's pay? No soup for him!

Wait until you get my age. You'll long for 32! :)

I'm with your mom. I'd love to see 32 again now that I'm starting at the big 50. I'll bet you were cute sword fighting in heels :)

I want a manny. Not for Ryan, though. For me. Do you think there are such a thing as mannies for 43-year-old women? Yeah, they're probably called 'escorts', aren't they? Sigh.

PS... Dean will be in the 4th grade one day, too. The recorder's comin' darlin'. Brace yourself. Oh.My.God. I hate that thing.

I SO could not do a sword fighting class today... or a Dianne Maroney class... or much else other than chase my toddler. Although I know I've got some muscles from lugging around a 17 pound baby!!! Gina <><
