This past week I was up at the trailer and had a lovely time. Couldn't have asked for better weather.
I decided not to say anything to Greg's mom about her repeating and elaborating on conversations, but in my head I've decided that I simply will not say anything even slightly negative about anybody so that she has nothing to talk about. While I quite like my future MIL, I don't think that she shows good judgement. So, it's up to me to have better judgement in the things that I choose to talk to her about.
Anyway, I had a funny experience last Thursday morning. Future MIL (Denise) invited me to aqua-aerobics at the pool. The night before it seemed like a good idea. At 9am the next morning, the idea sucked! But she wouldn't take no for an answer.
So, I get up out of my cozy bed, put on my swimsuit and troddled off to the pool with her. As we approached the pool, I could feel myself walking slower and slower and this feeling of dread washing up over me. She didn't tell it me it was Senior's aerobics. But I bit the bullet and jumped in the pool quick before anyone could see me. Well. Remember this movie Cocoon That is about as near to my experience as I can tell this story! The average age of the aqua-aerobics participants was about 70, and I gotta tell ya, once they got in the pool, they were acting like they were 15! It was hilarious! I swear I had a permanent grin on my face. There is nothing like an 80 yr old woman screaming with laughter that her "sister's weren't happy about the cold water" and in response having a 70 yr old dude telling her to hurry up and get in, he had "shrinkage to deal with!" I swear, the bantering went on for an hour! At one point (I kid you not!) there were 5 Hawks circling about over the pool! Well, didn't that set them off and they started bets on who the hawks were thinking was going to croak in the pool that day! I couldn't believe it! (I was only hoping that it wasn't going to be ME croaking, because I was having a hard time keeping up with the aerobics!)
In the end, it was the perfect way to start the day, and I would definitely join in again.
Although, I could have lived without the group hug at the end and singing "Here we go 'round the Mulberry bush so early in the mor'ning..."
That, was a little weird.
