I Follow Kids on Instagram

I confess that I totally forgot about jury duty over Christmas Break.  I meant to cancel it but then forgot and it dawned on me after New Year's that I was supposed to go.  I checked the website and it said "served" but I was still freaking out thinking I'd end up with a warrant out for my arrest so I called.  I did jury duty without actually doing it.  My name was called for a group that didn't get sent to a courtroom so even though I never showed up they checked me off as time served.  Easiest jury duty service I've ever done.

I cried almost to the point of sobbing watching Lone Survivor.  You know how if a baby starts to cry parents should take them out of the theater so as not to disturb other guests?  Well, I was that baby that would have had to leave if I couldn't get control of my tears.  It was so good and very well done but so sad.  It made my heart so heavy for the families who have lost their military men or have to deal with the fear of having a man in such a high risk occupation.  
I  confess that sometimes when I'm having an "ugly" day I snap a selfie.  Sometimes it confirms my suspicions and other times I am pleasantly surprised.

I've lost the ability to open our package delivery mailbox.  When USPS delivers a large package they put it in the larger box and put a key in our mailbox to open it.  It didn't used to be a problem but one day I tried opening it and couldn't.  I tried and tried on multiple days and even left a note saying that the key was defective.  It turns out I'm defective. MJ can get it open; I can't.  When a package comes he has to get it or else it will never come out.  I don't even want to think about what to do if a package comes in while he's out of the country.


I confess that I follow pre teen dancers on Instagram.  What can I say?  I love Dance in general and Dance Mom's in particular so I started following Nia, Maddie and Chloe.  They are so cute!  Then through those accounts I ended up following a few other dancers.  They are so flexible and they post really beautiful pics with their backs bent in half and legs at a backwards 90 degree angle.  Do they have bones?  I mean look at this girl.  It's not natural.  These kids are REALLY popular.  Ashi has 177k  and Kalanih has 233k followers!!!




I confess that when I'm doing yoga and the instructor gives certain directions sometimes I have no idea what they are talking about but I try to do it anyways.   Here are some examples:  The tailbone meets the pubis and the pubis still meets tailbone.  Feel the undulation of your breath moving through your spine.  Breathe into your side ribs.  Move your sacrum deep into the body.  Connect your legs to the length of your spine. Keep the skin of the back smooth, breathing and open.  Draw the energy of your legs into your spine.  Uh...what was that?? 

I still don't understand the i cloud.  I love it that it allows me to sync my i Pad with my i Phone so I probably just need to give up on understanding the how and just be glad that it does whatever it does however it does it.

I'm glad everything turned out with jury duty. I would have been nervous too.

And I didn't know you take yoga. Taking a yoga (or zumba) class is something I want to start doing this year. Do you like it?

I am the same way with the selfies! Most of the time, I surprise myself and look a lot better than I feel. I love iCloud too!

Kate said...

Um, I still don't get "the cloud." At all. I just pretend that I do.

congrats on jury duty! there are so many things i don't understand about my apple products. i'm probably the most inefficient user.

Karla said...

Hehehe, I love Dance Moms too!! Such an addicting show!

I love your confessions; they make my Friday!
the yoga confession is quite funny - do you make funny faces as you try to connect your pubis to your tailbone???

I had the same thing happen with jury duty! Whew! I was really freaking out about it. And I totally know what you mean with yoga instructors. Sometimes I feel like what they're saying doesn't even make sense!

I find that I follow alot of dancers on instagram too. But mainly the exotic kind! I dont know how it happened but I got so wrapped up with their make up, outtings and lives that I cant unfollow now. Lol guess thats my confession of the days ;) Hope you have a fun weekend!!!!

Brittany said...

I've never seen you take a bad selfie...you always look flawless! And you totally follow Bear on IG too ;)

#1 You are a lucky duck about jury duty.
#2 I walked right out of Lone Survivor when the helicopter was blown up since that is what Will is about to do.
#3 I don't judge you for following kids on IG, because their pics are awesome. However I do kind of judge their parents, because I think of all the pedophiles that can follow them and stalk them because of their youth and fame. Creeeeeepy!
