Whew, life is busy my friends. The back-to-school frenzy has collided with soccer, with family reunions, company and church picnics, with teaching crochet at the library, with trying to get in some continuing education for the previous career, and I'm sure I'm leaving something major off of the list! Here's a sneak peek still on the blocking board with wires and pins still in!
Also, today is my 100th Jazzercise class of 2008! Usually, I end up with around 180 classes. For the last 10 years, I think I have at least 100 classes for 8 of those years. The years before that, I was in grad school, and I was lucky to get to Jazzercise once or twice a week. Jazzercise has been in my life for about 14 years now. It has given me fitness and stress-relief, and endurance during difficult times. Also, it gives me that "water-cooler" conversation that stay-at-home-parents miss out on when they leave the office. I've also made some incredible friends, (Hi Friends!) who come and read my blog and are supportive of my crochet, because they are supportive of ME, even if they have ZERO interest in picking up a hook. LOL.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, for me, being physically fit (as best I can) makes me feel less guilty about sitting around crocheting, and I think it helps work out the shoulder/neck/back stress that the repetitive crochet does to your body.
