About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Gymnastics??

   I watch Katie doing gymnastics and I wonder how it is possible.  I NEVER in my life accomplished a cartwheel- neither did Jeff.  You do the math.  She just learned how to do a round off tonight and she is working on a one handed cartwheel.  Wow.  I watch and am absolutely amazed at her ability.  The last time I remember doing (attempting would be a better word) gymnastics was in high school.  Two of my friends were my "spotters".  You know, the people that were supposed to save you from yourself?  I wanted SO badly to accomplish a handstand and their job was to catch my legs in the air.  Simple, right?  Well, they decided that moment was a perfect time to chat instead.  I took a deep breath and up my legs went.  Then, down my legs went.  In fact, I went completely over and landed on my back.  BAM!  I heard someone scream, "She broke her neck!"  Thank goodness I just had the wind knocked out of me.  Nope, Katie did not get her gymnastics gift from me.

I can so relate to that! I remember watching in amazement as my daughter actually DID things, gracefully, in gymnastics!!
