My Life Lately

I think I mentioned earlier, or maybe not, that I had joined a gym. Well, today, I went for my first personal training session. It has been so long since I took myself seriously and actually paid attention to myself, and although I feel a bit guilty for leaving my son with our maid while I go, I must admit that it felt great to rediscover myself.
My trainer is wonderful, she's from NJ, and I don't know how long she will stay in KW, but I hope she will be here for a good little while, at least until I can muster up momentum on my own.
I have been having some eye trouble lately; I don't know why, but every time I come to KW, I get eye infections. Crazy thing is, the first Dr. I went to, at a govt. hospital barely gave me any time to tell him what was going on and just threw a prescription at me. Well guess what....wrong diagnosis, surprise surprise, a little thing like 'listening' is important after all!
Anyway, crazy reaction to the meds made me look like a raccoon on crack and sent me to a Dr. at private clinic, who I think may have gotten it right. At least, I am hoping.
Last thing, and it really pisses me off....I went to complain to the middle school principal at my kids' school about the fact that they are grading according to ABILITY in P.E.! That is just crazy. He said, "Well, since we are a prep school, we like to treat all of our classes the same." Hmmm...sorry, but no dice, bud, I didn't send my kids to school to become athletes. You are supposed to be educating my children, and just by the nature of the beast, P.E. is different.
Ah, well, it continues to pull her GPA down because she is not an athlete, but I am not going to obsess about it; it's just another one of those annoying things.

It's a turn point when you find struck yourself with what you've left behind and suddenly rediscover it again. I hope it keeps doing great at the gym.

In here, we've always been graded based on our abilities on P.E, actually I don't ever remember taking an actual exam on P.E.
If it is as it used to be, then it doesn't effect the GPA or at least it used to be that way in the old days.

Thanks touche. I am still enjoying the gym!
That's crazy about P.E. At my kids' school it does affect the GPA...ahhhh. :)
