Well I have not had any dreams that I remember the last two nights. But I would like to talk about my addictions. I actually have 3 addictions. #1 is Jazzercise. #2 is anything Twilight. # 3 is Disneyland. The reason why I have been thinking about my addictions today is because I went to the bank today right after Jazzercise and the teller asked me how my day was and I said fantastic I just got finished working out so that is why I am sweaty and gross. Then she asked me where I worked out and of course when I told her she laughed and said what most people say, which is "wow I didn't know that was still around!" I then proceeded to go on and on for about 10 minutes about how wonderful it is, how much weight I have lost how it has changed my life, how I could never go into a regular gym, how much fun I have I told her she should try it...then I when I walked out of the bank I was swept back into reality and thought to myself, did I just sit there and go on and on about Jazzercise to the bank teller that probably had other customers waiting behing me? HA! YES I DID!!! So then that got me thinking about how many times I have talked like that to complete strangers, and the truth is I have done it a lot, and I do it the most when 3 things are mentioned...workouts, anything Twilight related...and Disneyland. If I hear any of those things mentioned, I usually will jump right into the conversation and go on and on about all the fantastic things about them and how much I love them. Today I got thinking, I wonder how crazy these strangers think I am? Does it matter? But you know, honestly, I don't care what they think, and who knows, maybe the bank teller will come try Jazzercise, maybe the lady in the grocery store line whose daughter has read Twilight but she hasn't yet will decide to pick it up and read it, and maybe for the mom and her kids at the park, she will decide that for their next family vacation they should experience the magic of Disney. I have decided it is much better to be addicted to these things than anything else. They make me happy, they make my family happy. I am a better person because of these addictions, and I will never quit!
