Year 2 Day 13: Hint, Hint
I discovered this upon my windscreen when I went to run errands this afternoon -- a little tri-fold advertisement for Fitness First, the local fitness/health club here in Brierley Hill. I noticed it at first while still inside, and I thought maybe someone had hit my car and left a note. Once I realised what it was, my immediate conclusion was that clearly it's down to someone seeing my Hobbit-like self waddling to Asda yesterday.
Someone (I don't even know) is just trying to be a "good friend." Good thing I look this way moreso because I'm 7 months pregnant and not solely because I'm a bit out of shape. To be honest, I couldn't see myself actually making a gym membership cost-effective even if I weren't with child. If I think back to all the times I used the FREE facilities while attending Ohio University -- ah, good ole Ping -- well, let's just say it's a good thing it was free.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
