It's been a while since I have gotten a chance to blog, so I am going to try and touch on a number of things from the previous episodes. Sorry if this gets too long!
When I first got the call about participating in the "Dancing Stars of Atlanta" charity event, I was really honored that I was considered. As you know, I am not a dancer! So once again this is me going out of my comfort zone, trying to open up and do things that I never felt comfortable doing. But this time it was for wonderful cause. It wasn't about me, it wasn't about winning or losing, it was about raising funds for Alzheimer's research. So we were all winners! We all put a lot of time, energy, and effort into being involved in something so wonderful. We were given ten one-hour lessons to learn a routine. It was tough to make all of the lessons because of my schedule, but I got through it. I had a really good dance partner in Derrick, he kept me focused. One way I tried to raise money for the Alzheimer's Association was by hosting a boot camp in the park. I reached my goal even with the girls only donating $20! It went really well. Thanks for those that came out, I really appreciate the support.
I decided to throw a graduation party for my two youngest kids. My daughter was going into her first year of middle school, and my son was going into his first year of high school! Two very BIG milestones in my book, and a great cause for a celebration. I took the kids and their friends to Andretti's. We had a great time! I am pretty active with my kids, I love doing fun stuff together with them. They grow up so fast, and it is important to enjoy them while you can.
The scene with Lawrence coming into my kickboxing session was hilarious. I tried to get him to work out with me before, and that was even funnier! Those who know me know that I am serious about health and fitness. That's really important to me, and I'm very passionate about working out and staying healthy. I need to be around for my kids's kids...and their kids's kids! In other words, I need to be around a few generations!
