So, i like to make a goal each year to do. Nothing fitness related, mostly how I can help others, but give me something to remember. Last year was the amazing toy drive, which we are doing again this year, but I need something else, and I think I finally found it.
Every year, the Boys and Girl club in my town puts on a big fundraiser gala. It's called, "The Chair Affair". People from the community design/paint/decorate chairs that are auctioned off at the gala. I want to make a chair. That is my goal.
I love to be creative and make things, and I did make a chair before. Its green and white and black with a crap ton of polka dots. I can do it again, and to think someone would BUY my chair for an amazing charity that parts of my family uses?! Yes, please!
Only ten chairs get picked for the live auction, the rest of them are done with a silent auction, so yup, there's my goal. To be at that live auction with my chair. I already have ideas. I am thinking a 'Leather and Lace' themed. No offense to the designers, but some of the chairs they have now are mediocre. And I am not perfect, but I want to push myself. I have until November/December to get it done, but plenty of time to think and design. Man, sitting in the sun outside working on a chair this summer? I'm already excited.
I took the mentee to aqua zumba last night. Our first time! I really really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I didn't go deep enough for my tall body, but definitely going next week. They incorporated water aerobics into it too. Let me tell ya, those floating buoys are no joke. My shoulders and back are feeling it today. Holy moly.
And yup, I did dream about Michael Phelps last night. So beyond fitting. LOL he is always a cutie. And in my dream he was also a tattoo designer. Swoon. I think I need to meet a man again.
