A Dream I Once Had...

There were many things I wanted to be while growing up...a veternarian, Rodeo Queen, and in the 80's a gymnist. If you knew me or have seen pics of me growing up, this should cause your side to hurt from laughter. God did not bless me with a gymnists body! I remember Mom buying me a pair of Mary Lou Retton High-Top Sneakers at Ross after the Olympics. I was sure these would magically cause me to finally be able to do a cartwheel....nope, still have never done a cartwheel to this day. Then for a birthday present I received an exercise mat that included a baton with "streamer" (sorry I don't know the 'lingo') for a "Rhythmics" routing. My aspirations of being a "Mary Lou" shriveled up and died, however watching gymnastics this year has brought up those old feelings of wanting to fly through the air with impressive twists, turns, flips, and "sticking it" at the end. So, here I am living out this dream...enjoy! :)

That was totally hilarious. I also wanted to be Mary Lou Retton when I was younger.

I had the same dream and equally as successful at a cartwheel, even had a cheerleader for a neighbor that spent an entire summer devoted to teaching me and failed miserably!
LOVED the video...think I'll do it and live my dream!

Goodness. I think I busted my side from laughing so hard. Thank you for the much needed comic relief of that hysterical video. I love that laughter is a part of your marriage too.
