Last night Chase and I made our way over to the apartment complexes gym. Usually the place is a ghost town, but as it is January it is the happening place. For the first ten minutes we are alone. Then we are joined by another couple. At this point our gym is full. No seriously, it's small. Then we are joined, all at once, by three adults and two children. I'm talking LITTLE kids, around 5 and 6. Now the gym is completely packed. It's not anyone's personal fault that it is pack, just a fact. Then the children begin to "work out." They go to each of the weight machines, "ride" the elliptical (you know one kid on each foot slot), "run" on the treadmill. If I was a kid this is exactly what I would do.
I don't have children, and I try not to judge something I don't know about. However, I was about to pull my hair out. Not only was I worried that one of these kids were about to hurt themselves, I couldn't work out. Chase and I just left, approximately 30 minutes before we normally would. Personally I would never take my kids to work out with me at that age, but what would you do in this situation? As a parent? As a stranger in the gym?
On to the crafts. I made a card last night:Here's the card open:
