Why not sign up at the local YMCA that is just blocks from our house? Well, the last couple of years the idea of going into a closed space like this with two little ones who love to collect germs, was less than ideal given my compromised immune system due to the Multiple Myeloma and the chemical warfare that was recently enacted.
Well, we have reached a new era. My immune system is on the rise and we now have three kids who love to collect germs. The difference being that I now have a physical body that ain't like it used to be. I may "look good", but under that smile is a body that has been physically dominated. Although I have been running, I still have not found the time to return to hitting the weights to strengthen both my bones and (non-existent) muscles.
Yesterday Cassie went down to the YMCA and pulled the trigger on a YMCA members to (1) get us both into shape and (2) give us a family place to go to help us maintain sanity as we move into the cold and dreary winter months in Michigan. The Y happens to have free childcare, so I suspect Cassie will be there every day!
Lastly, I sense that we are moving into a new phase in our domination of life and taking on Multiple Myeloma. This may or may not activate us writing more blogs to chronicle our experience, but I hope i does! Regardless, I have gotten a little more active on Twitter (@brabbs) if any of you are on there!!
See you at that Y. -Phil
