Back to Work

So much for posting every day.

Yesterday was back to work and a cold. Dang it, I don't want a cold, so I'm fighting it by attempting to ignore it. But when I'm sick I just feel too tired and weak to work out, so there goes my last week at this gym.

Did I mention I got an email from my gym informing me that the Indian School branch (the one I go to) will be closing? Yes, indeed, and they're upgrading me to a premium membership, so I can work out in any of their locations. The closest ones are in Cave Creek (about an hour's drive) and Mesa (ditto, or longer, depending on traffic). Whee. Time to find a new gym, which will never be as cheap as this one was.

There's nothing better than seeing a kitten try to make a jump, scramble, and fall in the toilet bowl. *snicker* Well, sure, then you have to clean up little wet footprints as there is a mad dash for the door, but still.


In the lobby of the MGM Grand, Leo all dolled up for the celebration:



I just missed the big celebration and Dragon Dance they had here on Saturday; I could hear the drums and see the dragon going over people's heads, but didn't get into the lobby in time. They showed some of it later on the local news.

I know. I'll probably have to go to LA Fitness, which is nicer, certainly, but I'm certain it's correspondingly more expensive. I've been at Bally for ten years.

*hugs*

Ugh to the gym news... if it's not within a 10 minute drive, it's not worth sticking with it. Because if you're like me, it's got to actually be *convenient* or I never go. Besides which, an hour? So two hours just to get there and back again, not to mention time spent exercising? Yikes!

Love the photo!!

pretty pic

ugh to the gym. Bally's screwed me that way once but they made sure theyhad others within 23 miles because ethey would only allow you OUT of the membership if it was over 25 miles

Uh oh. The Cave Creek one is "only" 11 miles away. They'd better let me out -- I'm not contracted anymore, it's been a yearly thing for a while now. If they give me a hard time, I'll cancel them with my bank.

sounds like a plan. the one i had and loved so much when I lived in MIddleton WI allowed me to sell my membership. they said put it in the paper someone will buy your contract before the week is out. I think i sold it in 12 hours

I've been going to this gym for a decade, hopefully my long-time status will weigh in my favor. I wouldn't have to leave if they weren't closing.

I have to get over to LA Fitness and see what they offer. But first I have to actually CALL Bally and get it over with so they stop charging me...

Saw this just last night, actually. We usually keep the lid down...but sometimes, she's just FAST.

The gym news is annoying...hope that the new one will be doing promotions and end up not being more expensive.

It is annoying. I have to see what the prices are like at LA Fitness -- but I expect it WILL be more expensive.

He does all those funny kitten things!
