Catch up

Ok, there are a couple things I am behind on talking about. My Valentines day post will likely be tardy. Anyway, I'll get on with it.

First off... I finally quit salsa. I tried. It wasn't for me. Not this team anyway, I don't want to get into details and complain about it here. But it just hasn't been a fun experience. It could get better and just might this time, but I've had to make a decision. We're kind of on a team break. We're all taking individual lessons right now. This means that we're out of contract. I've been trying to decide for a while, actually. I've been holding on to how cool it COULD be. But it's been more drama and stress than anything else so far. When I started kickboxing I found this group of people who just amaze me. Everyone is like one big family and truly care about each other. I have never experience a group of people that really care about me as an individual outside of the given activity through which i met them. I realized that in a few months when salsa goes back to full time I wouldn't have time for both and I would have to make a choice. I think this new found group could be really good for me, especially when it comes deployment time and I really need support and not to just be occupied. So, rather than just waiting until i had to sign the contract, I figured I would just cut the ties now and leave my salsa group. I will miss it, I do already. But I will also like having a little more free time, a little extra cash, and a whole lot less stress.

On a funner (yes, I said 'funner') note, yesterday Monkey, his little bro, and I went to a rock climbing gym. It was a lot of fun and I think we're all excited to go back some time. Our forearms are soooo sore, though! The hardest part was keeping a grip on the rocks.


  1. Great pics! I love rock climbing. Haven't done that in forever though. Looks like you guys had a blast!

  2. Sounds like you made the right choice about Salsa, it's hard to spend the time on an activity when you don't feel like you're getting everything you want out of it.
    And I love that you said funner ;)
