i'm excited about 2 things right now - catching the first ep of desperate housewives on star yesterday and the opening of my sister's wall climbing gym next week.
my mom and i were laughing uncontrollably at some of the scenes on DH. in the next eps, i'll be waiting for fried neurons' appearance on the series - he sez the final episode will show him and jesse metcalfe eloping. hehe... guess we'll have to prepare extra pasta and chips for the DH marathon session at my house. and valium for isao, who's also got the hots for jesse.
as for wall climbing, havent climbed for a year now. problems: making time for it and finding a climbing buddy. my climbing shoes and chalk bag are in the trunk of the car, just in case the opportunity to climb presents itself. jtm wants to climb with me but we cant do it on weekdays for obvious reasons. weekends naman are a time for both of us to catch up on sleep and for me to bond with my daughters. i brought them once or twice to the gym. i'd carry them and they would pretend to climb the wall. but they would rather run around and bounce on the mattresses underneath the walls that climbers use for bouldering. siyempre, delikado.
i used to be able to climb past the overhang - thanks to coaching and encouragement from beau dela cruz (brother of mao dela cruz, gma-dzbb reporter) and the other instructors. overcoming the challenge of a difficult wall is not only good exercise. the high you get from finishing a wall is a good stress-buster and ego-booster. of course, i also look forward to the barbecue session outside ilang-ilang in up after every climb.
