Halloween is always a busy day here at school (work). The children are so excited, they are ready to bust. Many of them had their costumes picked out months ago. Do you remember as a child, the days you lived for seemed to take an eternity to get here? I sure do! That is the reason that I try to be patient with 22 hyped-up, overly excited, loud kindergarten children. As old as I am, I remember that feeling. All in all, the children were really well-behaved and I didn’t need an Advil after work. We had a fun day of bobbing for apples, pumpkin musical chairs, dancing to Thriller and playing pass the witch’s caldron.
The kindergarten staff dressed up as bunnies. That’s a lot a cotton tails hoping around the school. I love these bunnies I work with! Mary Bunny is training for a 5K, and we run together. Ever hear of a slow rabbit? I think not!
I treated, but of course it was in moderation. I had two rainbow sprinkled cookies, and shared a ghost cupcake. A bunny needs a little sugar once in a while, especially after eating all those carrot sticks.
Later, it was gym time. The weather looked very dubious, as though a downpour was headed our way, so I decided to skip insanity at my gym and had a killer lower body blaster right in my condo gym facilities. Squats, lunges, ball rollers and leg extensions with high reps and high sets. I worked up a hell of a sweat and I am sure I will be sore tomorrow.
It’s time for this bunny to hang up her ears and get ready for a few good slasher films. On another scary note, I have been mulling over the idea of trying Crossfit. Just ask my husband, my mulling over usually leads to doing. Uh-oh. This new idea is scarier than Mike Myers, Freddie Crougar and Jason all put together.
Can anyone offer me any Crossfit tips for beginners?
