Big surprise!!!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I've been working really hard at my karate lately. I am getting to where I am more flexible then I was a few months back, plus I do see a change in my sleep pattern. I have lost a total of 8lbs now and 5 inches in legs and arms. I have lots of great support from my family. My 13 yr old grandson attends with me 2x a week and more when he doesn't have school work. But last night I got the best surprise old all.....the master instructor handed my husband a karate uniform and invited him to be part of the school.

what an you have to understand the hubby is 61, works 40hrs a week plus as Trauma X-Ray tech and since the school opened he has been laying down hardwood floors, tile work and trim. I have been doing the painting. Well, the worked a deal so grandson and I could have 4yrs of lessons with belt promotions and weapons. Last night to invite my hubby in and not cost was blessing.

We work very well together and the master has been impressed with what my hubby accomplishes all the time. My hubby and grandson are my biggest supporters. Now the 3 of us will really rock this world.

You have no idea how happy I am to have my hubby doing this with me. Just 5 1/2yrs ago he was on an operating having his chest cracked open and and having a 5 way heart bypass. He has come back now to this point and I know all 3 of us will really do well. The competition level is high, but just to have the extra support and help means the world to me.

What can I say, I am blessed, happy, thankful and just down right proud...I know now that the rest of the 40lbs I have to lose will come off and I will be doing the full s!plits and full stretching soon.

Well, off to finish my computer work for morning and then get lunch ready so hubby can go to work and I will practice before class tonight...iI'll return again to let you know our progress...hugs to all!

    Howdy Bee...I have read with interest about the tile work and the Karate and it is just so awesome! It does my heart good to read of other women who have the ability to do work with tile (I did my kitchen counter tops and back walls while my husband was out on the road) It also brought to mind of when I decided to take Tai Kuan Do with my sons instead of just dropping them off for their classes while I went shopping. It was soooo great, which I am sure you are discovering. We would go to the classes together and then practice what we learned at the house (where the boys usually ganged up on me and the game was 'Beat The Crap Out Of Mom While Giggling Along With Her'! ) The discipline and structure your kids will get from the Karate instruction and 'code of truth and honesty' along with the valuable time you all will get to spend together will help to form them into wonderful adults. I applaud you and your husband for making sure you are part of this activity in their lives!!! emoticon
