The waiting game and 80's aerobics therapy

My grandpa's funeral and memorial services are not until next Monday. I was surprised that it wasn't planned for a day early this week - I thought it might happen today or tomorrow - but I assume my dad and two aunts decided on this so our out-of-state relatives (Cali, Florida, Pennsylvania) can get here. That only makes sense.

The waiting, though, the waiting... augh!!!! I'm anxious for the closure the services will bring, so I'm playing the waiting game with a certain degree of impatient blah.

In the meantime, two things...

One, I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all the words of encouragement, prayers, thoughts and love sent my way from all of you!!! I really, really appreciate it. I got choked up when reading your comments - they touched me. I'm truly grateful for this little cyber-community we have!

Two, I want to note the little things that make me smile and give me little rays of sunshine. Today it was this article that I found on The New York Times this morning. I got such a kick out of it! And I totally want to fly to LA to take the class!! Calling my LA bloggy lady friends... Maegan, Jen, Lizzy Marie, Gabby... you should go take this class! I'm so excited about it!! Can't you tell by my annoying use of exclamation marks?!?!

Omg, neon spandex? 80's tunes? All while learning some authentic dance moves? Yes please! And it looks like I'd fit right in...

Yep, I'm for hire if you need a 80's jazzercise instructor for a birthday party. Work it, feel the burn, baby!


  1. First I'm so glad your family is able to come...but I know the waiting is hard! I hope youre doing ok hun!!

    P.S that dance class looks awesome! I want to make it my sunday church too! AWESOME! Thanks for sharing!

  2. HA I said "awesome" twice...I'm clearly ready for this class.

  3. DUDE, I have no rhythm but I would so hit up that class. Hang in there!!

  4. I'm so sorry about your grandpa. Service or no service, it's difficult to deal with.

    1. You look radical in your dance outfit!

    2. That class looks totally fun EXCEPT for the fact that I may or may not have had a short "relationship" with one of the guys in there's hard to tell but I'm about 89% sure and I'm not willing to take that chance! lol. But you should really just start your own class in Colorado.

  5. :big hugs:

    Also? You look awesome in your 80's aerobics outfit!

  6. Okay, are too cute!

    And that tall skinny bookshelf is from Ikea.

  7. I'm sorry about your grandpa :(

    And I am SO there for that class! How awesome!
