I'm excited because I'm not in this episode, and maybe many of you are too! Ha! Jackie has been busy teaching me the ropes of her business as well as preparing things while she is away on the cruise ship. It's a great honor to know that "JAX" is confident in my ability to run things exactly how she likes it. She runs a "tight" ship and as much as we laugh, joke, and poke fun at each other, I know that this is serious business. Finally, the 12-hour days for the past two months will be put to the test ... will I sink or swim??? Aaaahhh ... the pressure!

Life is good at the gym -- I can say it is the first time in my life that I actually look forward to coming into work. The girls find out about the lesbian cruise. I'm sure that they are excited and slightly nervous at the same time. They are so in for it! OK -- so there is a mysterious little bag of "I want Jackie" pixie dust that floats around the gym and lands on a trainer from time to time. I'm not sure what it is, but these girls are drawn to her like bees to honey. I always get the knock on my office door or a phone call from the recipient of the magical pixie dust, wondering what to do about the attraction to Jackie. How the hell should I know? The assumption is that I'm the gatekeeper into the magical land of Jackie  So I honestly tell them: "Don't crap where you sleep" (aka, don't kiss or sleep with the boss.) This advice falls upon deaf ears and "POOF" out of nowhere they find themselves in a boatload of drama and trouble. So yes -- there is drama at the gym and everyone is a willing participant. Let's be real -- please! A quote comes to mind from Sir Walter Scott that sums it all up "Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."
