The Argentines enjoy gummy bears...
They like to put characters on their gummy bear wrappers...ya know...

"Displaying a plethora of children’s characters along with Santa Claus, the Ballet Jeunesse Christmas presentation brings a wide variety of dance styles to the stage including the fiery flamenco, the sparkling can-can, the spirited tarantella, the reverent liturgical and the majestic classical .

However, at this time I would like to say a great big "THANK YOU" to all the women in my life whose lists are much longer and more horrific than the mere annoyances on my own. You are such marvelous examples to me. In fact, your examples have influenced my life so tremendously that I will now stop my complaining and...drumroll please...get started on my math.

I saw that oh-so-ridiculously packaged piece of temptation in the top of the closet and before I knew what was happening, my hand had almost reached it with the intent to pull it down. At this realization, I turned myself around and walked away.

"Where's the ironing board?...BUT WHAT IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO ON SUNDAY?"
"Are you good babysitters...He needs a lot of instruction...and eye contact."
For a few seconds I wondered about his sanity, but then decided that this could only be a good thing. Maybe this will be the start of a 'new leaf' for us...you know, of the fitness sort.
"I'm going for a quick run."
