During the last week we've done a few fun things. Dave has studied for the Bar exam. Oh, wait, that's not a fun thing. But that's what he's been doing a lot of. He'll take the Nevada Bar exam at the end of February, so we have a little more than a month of the studying.
Okay, on to the really fun things. I went to a Zumba class! It's the first time that I've done Zumba, and I LOVED it! I'd heard of Zumba before, and I watched my 10-year-old niece doing it on the Wii a month ago. It didn't seem so bad. So when I heard of a free Zumba class here in Pahrump, I decided to try it out. Haha! It wasn't "bad", but it was HARD! I have never been so tired only 15 minutes into a workout! I almost left after about 25 minutes. But I stuck it out for the full hour, and it was a lot of fun. I am planning on going again for a free class tonight.
I love these free classes, but I know that they are just to get me hooked before the gym opens. Once the gym opens they'll start charging for the classes. And I think that they may have already hooked this customer! We'll see how much they charge.
Another fun thing from this week is that we bought two new BIG things. The first one we bought, we were planning on: a new computer. Dave needs a laptop to take the Bar exam, and the one that we have is kind of on the fritz. You have to angle the screen a certain way or else these lines (like static) appear on the screen and cover anything you're trying to look at. And it's gotten progressively worse over the last 2 months, so we decided that it would be better to get a new computer now rather than wait for the old one to die. It arrived today, and I am graciously waiting until Dave gets home to open it, since he is pretty excited about this purchase.
The second item we bought was unplanned: a new vacuum. The old one croaked this last week; the brush wouldn't turn at all when the vacuum was turned on. So it would still make the loud vacuum noise that made you think it was working, and then the floor would be just as dirty after you vacuumed as before. Fun! But we decided that we would prefer clean floors to a noisy exercise routine! The vacuum arrived yesterday, through Amazon, and the shipping didn't cost us anything since we have Amazon Prime. Seriously, living in rural Nevada and not being willing to drive an hour to go shopping in Vegas makes Amazon Prime worth it. And you get to shop from the comfort of your own home!
Have any of you made some fun/big purchases lately?
