The other thing that rubbed me the wrong way was... the people that they allow to audition just so they can make fun of them, or create some drama. I have been irritated by that before in past years, but this year it was just so clear to me that those people have to know they are going to be put on TV and be made to look like fools. If not, couldn't they try to sue them. I think they sign some papers agreeing to allow them to portray them in that way. It is still kind of irritating to me for some reason.
I heard Dolly Parton was considered to be a judge instead of Kara D. Or Conan O'Brien. I would have liked that. But that is just me.......

The rest of our session she really worked with me on teaching me some exercises I could do with the balance ball. I bought one a year or two ago and never used it. Let me tell you...there is A LOT you can do with those! I have homework to do with that thing. My balance is really off...and I am looking forward to seeing where this will lead me in that regard. I was really very self-conscious doing these exercises because you are in a area where you are "On Display". She kept trying to reassure me that no one was looking at me, but I felt like I was going to fall on my ass right in front of everyone. She held on to me so that I wouldn't. That is why I have homework to do. If I plan on doing those exercises there at the gym, without a spotter I need to work on it in the privacy of our home. She was really very kind and did not make me feel like an idiot or anything. This morning when I woke up, I actually FELT some of my muscles. I haven't been in touch with them for a long time. Welcome back...old friends. Use it or lose it. It is never too late. All of those cliches...so true!

Our daughter has met some Moms through a group on the computer that all have babies the same age. She has been able to meet a few of them face to face, and just got back from DC where she met one of the Moms. Bob and I asked her if they seem different when you actually meet them in person. She said ....Not really, because after a couple of years of reading updates about their daily or weekly lives you feel like you really know them, and you see pictures of most of them. The one thing that is usually lacking though on the Internet social world is a voice to connect with the person. I have made a lame attempt at video taping myself, talking dribble....but hopefully you get an idea of what my voice sounds like. I think when I read a book I imagine in my mind what the character looks like and sounds like...to me. I doubt if most people would agree on the same images and sounds. So here is my little experiment. Did you think my voice would sound like this? Ha....be honest!
PS Sorry for the crazy view....the sun was so bright I really couldn't see what I was doing. Loved the sun today though!!!!!
