Front Loaders

After a good week of recovery work outs – some light recovery runs on the treadmill, not lifting too heavy during weights – I still had a bit of soreness going on when I awoke this morning. Guess Insanity for the first time will do that to a person.

When setting up my workout plan last week, I decided to have Fridays open for a yoga type of class at my gym. I did it all the time when I was pregnant. Flashback:

I remembered it being a good workout to stretch out achy muscles, so I made my way there for this morning’s class. I looked forward to that loosey goosey feeling at the end.

Apparently I only remembered the second half of the class. The first half was all about sun salutations, then holding poses for forrr-evvv-errrr. I hope my legs don’t feel those warrior squats and lunges too much tomorrow. Eeep!!! Luckily I did end the workout feeling perfectly relaxed and stretched. Smile

Besides a yoga filled morning, we have also had a laundry filled morning.

We bought a new front loader washer and dryer last week.

It was quite the saga.

Peter found some for a good deal. He then debated for five days. Finally, he decided it was too good a deal to pass up and bought them. The next day, he continued to shop around after buying them. He found a better deal elsewhere.

What happened next? He bought those. Returned the first ones before they were even delivered. And still looks at washer and dryer prices. I may not understand the man, but I shall not complain. I now have a washer and dryer with more room to stuff clothes into…and new entertainment for the kids.


I shall never complain again about his deal finding ways. It makes mommy happy. It makes the kids happy. And it scored me that two dollar Runner’s World subscription! It may also score me a third washer and dryer set, but I won’t complain. No, wait. I didn’t say that. No more washer and dryers…PLEASE!

Also, notice I said I won’t complain about his deal finding ways. I will still for sure complain about having to fold laundry. Blech. Off to do that now! Have a good one, my friends. Smile

  • Do you like yoga? I think I would like it more if taken at a studio instead of my gym’s little class, but it does help the muscles!
  • How much do you analyze your purchases and shop around?
