Conversation with my Friends.

Dear Eliptical,

It has been such a long time since we have seen eachother. Momma was just so busy with Christmas preparations, sick children, lack of sleep and umm...no energy. BUT, the New Year means things are going to be different. I prepared for my visit to your home (aka the gym) for a few days, psyching myself up, getting motivated and primping up my unwashed hair and washed trackpants and old ratty t shirt.

Then this morning arrived.

Princess and I sent the boys off to school and got ourselves ready for the big visit.

I have to admit, I was actually looking forward to getting all sweaty with you. The chocolates and MANY turkey sandwiches have placed themselves right on my butt and you're always so helpful helping me sweat them off. That is why I love you so.

I love you so much that I ran up the stairs with Princess, diaper bag and gym bag in my arms. I almost skipped to the doors but was afraid I might drop something. I opened the doors, said bye to Princess and dropped my other stuff in a locker.

I walked over with my water bottle, a smile on my face and the song "Gonna Get Physical" by Olivia Newton John running through my head.

Then I saw you.

You were busy with someone else. How dare you? Have you forgotten about me already? Has it been that long that you have already moved on and found other women? I thought I would try to make you jealous by finding another friend that looks like you and does all of the same stuff as you, but they were all busy too.

I am heartbroken.


Dearest Treadmill,

You are my new best friend. I had so much fun with you this morning. Can't wait to see you again soon.

Love Momma

I need to visit your friends too... but they don't like me any more than I like them

Too funny. I hope that your new friend ship works out.

My treadmill sits, gathering dust in the basement. I hope that I can find the time to get back on it once this baby comes!

Thanks for de-lurking. It's always nice to meet new people round here - particularly another Ontarian!
