Okay, now that we are getting back on a schedule and life consist of a lot more time in the car dropping and picking up kids I thought I would share my favorite find...  (not that I think anyone cares but I figured I should record it for my own memory due to my issues on remembering things that actually save me time)!  Yes it is dinner in 4 minutes...  Okay, I know this will never make anyone think that I have it all together in the kitchen but cook this baby up in 4 minutes and add some rice and a veggie and you look like a house wife from the 50’s in no time.  I would also suggest an apron just so you can keep the illusion going.  I do make two of these for my family of six but it is a crowd pleaser and I have a difficult crowd to please...    

Okay, now that I have that recorded I can move on...  Today since I vowed yesterday to do better with my time when the kids were at school I went to the gym...  Haven’t been there for a while so I took my place in the spinning class towards the back in hopes that I could disappear as I knew the class would be rather difficult for me to ease my way back into...   Got on my trusty bike and began.  I could tell the teacher (who by the way looked like the perfect picture of health-- hate her already-- not really) was in a mood...  That is not a good sign to have a teacher in a mood on your first day back to the gym and now you are captured in her mood for the next hour (TORTURE).  I braved through most of the class giving it my all trying hard to work off all those s’mores of July.  My head was down, eyes closed, listening to the music and working hard when all of a sudden I could feel the presence of someone standing two inches in front of me.  Being rather taken by the thought I looked up from my bike and there standing in front of me with her microphone attached to her head was the teacher!!!! YIKES!!!  What the heck was she doing at my bike?!  I did not recall calling her over or doing anything to bring attention to myself.  She then looks at me and says the words I will never forget, “You can work harder!!!”  I looked up at her with barely enough strength to hold my head in place and tried to say something in my defense but nothing came out.  She then said, “increase your tension.”  Was she kidding?  Was there a camera around with people laughing at me waiting to see what it would take to give me a heart attack?  I looked at my friend that was with me and of course she was NO help, probably not wanting moody teacher to come to her bike, and then I looked back at microphone girl.   I began to increase the tension so that she would leave and she said, “there you go!!!”  Can I walk now?  Of course not....  But I will remember that class.  

Anyway, that story reminds me of life.  Not to turn too serious but there are times in life where you are working (so you think) your very hardest and life will hand you something unexpected making you feel like me in that class with the teacher standing two inches from you and saying, “You can work harder and turns up the tension”.  Maybe that is one of the points of life, finding out just how hard and how much tension you can work under and it is probably only there that we can find our true potential...  Just a thought...
