Surprise Engagement

Sometimes your client’s boyfriend calls you and says, “I want to propose at the end of our session. Can we have a secret phrase so I know when it’s the end because she’ll never forgive me if her makeup gets messed up before we’re done.” For the record, I think she would’ve forgiven him, but his thoughtfulness was so sweet.

Water Aerobics

Three years ago I hurt my knee at Zumba. It was pretty bad, and when I went to the doctor she told me it would take a while to heal because of the severity of the sprain and because “you’re getting to that age”.  Ahem. Anyway, I had no idea that three years later my knee would still swell and ache if I danced, hiked, or even walked on it for a considerable length of time. But, I missed exercising.  What to do?  I figured water aerobics was a good plan, so a friend and I decided to hit the pool three times a week.

The exercise is great, but what I really love about water aerobics are the ladies in our class.  My friend and I are the youngest ones there by decades. Our pool is right next to a senior living community, and 9am seems to be a perfect time both for us to get our kids off to school and for the seniors to make their way to the pool.

These ladies are the best– they’re funny, encouraging, and real. They don’t care what they look like in bathing suits. They notice if we miss a day.  They think I’m toned (“You don’t have saggy arms like the rest of us!”) and that I don’t look old enough to have a teenager.  You guys.  Everyone needs fifty ladies who have already done your phase of life and who are there to be your friends and your cheerleaders. Water aerobics is good for my body and great for my soul.

A warm treat

I had a college roommate who didn’t know how to cook. I’m not talking about no experience making “real” food, I’m talking I never saw her cook anything. Ever. Instead, each day she’d come home with fast food for lunch and dinner. She was an only child and her parents were both in busy, professional careers, so they always ordered takeout. She said she didn’t remember her mom making anything other than a sandwich after she hit age four.

My other roommates and I enjoyed cooking and baking.  We frequently joined forces to make meals on the weekends, and often made treats for the apartment.  Our sweet non-cooking roommate expressed guilt at enjoying the fruits of our labors while never participating, but we didn’t mind.

Once, on our weekly grocery shopping trip, the culinary challenged roomie approached our cart with a huge smile and obvious excitement on her face.

“Look, guys!” she held up a package of Chips Ahoy. “It says ‘Heat for a warm treat!’ Now I can make something for you!”  We congratulated her on her find and finished our shopping.

Later that evening we were enjoying a movie together when our sweet roommate offered to heat up her cookies for all. We told her that would be great, and she popped into the kitchen to throw them in the microwave then came back to watch the movie. It must’ve been at a captivating point because it was a few minutes later that I realized she had returned without the cookies.

“Hey (name redacted to protect her reputation), what happened to your warm treat?” I asked.

“It’s the in microwave.”

“How long did you put in in for?”

“How long should I have put it in for?”

“Like 15 seconds.”

She sprinted to the kitchen and hit the button to open the still running microwave.  Black smoke filled our apartment and she emerged carrying a plate with a half dozen cookie-sized charcoal circles.  Turned out she thought they had to be baked, like cookie dough, and had set the microwave to run full force for five minutes.

Parenting First

Last week my 12 year old fractured his ankle.  He wasn’t doing anything crazy, just landed on it the wrong way.  It threw our normal routine off a bit, but he’s handling it like a champ.  And I have now had a child with a broken bone. Fingers crossed that’s a one time hit.
