After a week of not going to the gym, I went this morning. I was late for the cardio class I've been taking so I sat down on one of the stationary bikes in the cardio room. It was the first time I had been in there and what a discovery; I liked it better than the cardio class. It was quiet, the only noise was the low background hum of treadmills treading, elipticals eliticing, and cycles cycling. I was able to say a rosary as I spun the pedals and in 25 minutes I was out of there. Now THIS I could do every day.
I've been making cards and notebooks this week. Dana, the owner of the Emporium has agreed to let me display my cards and other paper products there. I'm bringing the completed items over there tomorrow. If I remember, I'll take a picture of my display.
Later this morning, I'm driving with Marie to Modesto Junior College. She was recently invited to speak in a class (not sure if it's political science) and hopefully have an open discussion about the tea party and in particular, our local group which is strictly non- partisan and does not endorse candidates. Our group invites any and all candidates, elected representatives, and a wide variety of speakers of any political persuasion to come before us.
We have slowly and steadily become known as the group that likes to build bridges between people that might not necessarily agree on most issues. And I'm here to tell you - It's. Not. Easy.
So, more about this later. Oh, and WHY am I going? I'm Marie's bodyguard. She's 4'10" and weighs about 90 lbs on a bad day.
